Thank you Aileen for your coaching and wisdom. Your coaching style is very responsive, and you have a great balance of theoretical information that is backed up with practical advice. You have a good range of approaches to help work through a situation - from the very practical to the more quirky, but they all help guide the individual to the right answer. I appreciated that you not only took the coach role but on occasions you were the instructor - and that you clarified each time you stepped between those roles. I would recommend you to leaders and executives at any level in the organization.
