Rod is one of one of the best
professional coaches we have in
the business today. Rod’s
commitment levels are rare, and
commendable – he gives it his
all! Rod brings in a very clear framework, and
creates metrics for success. As an HR leader,
I implicitly trust Rod’s coaching/mentoring skills.
What makes him authentic is the fact that he has
tremendous business experience, and draws from
it to coach/mentor his clients. I highly
recommend Rod to anyone who is looking for a


“I bought your Instant Interview
Coach package a few days ago.
I went for a very formal
government job
and was able
to considerably improve my
interview performance by focusing on my
friendliness (I think I usually come across as
pretty officious in an interview due to being
anxious) and my ability to enthusiastically lead
a team to outstanding outcomes (I usually try to
prove I can do a hundred things which ends up
like a shopping list).”

I was a lot less stressed than usual and had
the five fingers full of things I wanted to add and
I had a question for them that led to them giving
me a lot of info and us having a laugh together
(always a good sign!).”

Dear Carole,

Thank you so much for being
such an extraordinary “early
morning” interviewing skills
coach. Your skill in providing
insight into my communication style was spot-on.
Today during my interview, I was relaxed and the
interview that was for 1 hour went to 1.5 hours
and the interviewer closed for a second interview.
The time flew and the interview was more
conversational. Furthermore and most
importantly, I was well prepared and everything
aspect I prepared for with you was used during
the interview.

Some other good news…yesterday, was really
fabulous as I also received notice of two
additional terrific positions and they both were
referrals from people who worked with me in the
past. Any leads were sparse for a year. But, now
everything seems to be full speed ahead for a
finding a career position that matches with
my values.

You get my five finger vote for Virtual Coach
of the year.


Carole, thank you again for your
assistance and help the past
few weeks, especially given the
short-turn around from the time
I was notified when my
interview was scheduled. I will most definitely be
recommending you and passing your name on to
a few of my friends who want to pursue this kind
of work.
