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 coach/mentor/guide.
“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!).”

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.
