“Most coaches specialize in helping you create a one-time change. Great coaches, on the other hand, help you build the skills, resilience, and self-awareness to make better, more confident decisions for the rest of your life. That’s what Todd did for me, and more than a decade later, I’m grateful every day for the lasting impact he’s had — and continues to have — on my life. Todd’s gift is his 20/20 vision for what’s most important about each of us. Where others see weakness, Todd sees humanity. Where others see failure, Todd sees education. Where others see despair, Todd sees opportunity. You’ll be a different person after working with him, in the most magnificent possible way.” (Leonard Markidan, CMO, Podia)
