From John Whitmore, author of Coaching For Performance:
“I have known Julie for many years, she has been a very experienced coach for a long time. She has written two excellent books on coaching. She is unusually broad an innovative in her way of thinking. Julie reaches far beyond the somewhat rigid academic methods of coaching and is one of the few expert coaches that I would seek for myself to provide coaching. She readily takes coaching deeper into personal development which is increasingly necessary in this challenging world of business and in the more complex global issue that face much of humanity now.”
