A.A., Executive Vice President, Healthcare Analytics

“Working with my Arden coach was game-changing for me, and I’m so grateful to him and to Arden for making this program happen. He speaks hard truths kindly, which is an incredible superpower. He made coaching very approachable. I felt like I had no space or margin in my day for anything outside of my day-to-day job responsibilities, and his approach of neither pushing me from behind nor pulling me from ahead but just walking with me where I was had a profound impact on me. At times he was unflinching – he wouldn’t let me gloss over uncomfortable truths. At the same time, I felt like I could show up as a whole person (with, for example, my highly imperfect pandemic childcare). I have no constructive feedback for him – he was exactly the source of wisdom I needed in this chapter of my life.”

W.D., Vice President, Construction

“I desperately needed someone like you and this coaching experience in my life but I was too stubborn to pursue it myself. While the start of the process wasn’t necessarily pleasant and I had my hesitance and resentment about the whole thing – I’m so thankful for everything I’ve learned and how much personal growth I have achieved in partnering with you to work with me.”
