Behavioral Health Service Line Director
I transitioned into a new role in late 2019. Couple that with working from home due to COVID-19, 2020 was a hard adjustment to the new responsibilities and oversight I had. Ryan helped me not only celebrate successes I may have overlooked, but adeptly redirect some of my behavior patterns to make progress on my development areas, which translated into positive shifts in my approach in the workplace. I recommend Ryan to anyone looking to make a positive change!
Assistant Director, Research
I knew when I accepted my new role that I wanted Ryan to be my coach. He has experience in the same field, HR, a successful business leader, a deep understanding and curiosity about concepts and frameworks and someone I trust implicitly. Working with Ryan as my coach through my first 5 months of transition was extremely helpful as he helped me avoid pitfalls, navigate some challenging situations and help me stay focused on my development areas. I highly recommend Ryan as an executive coach. He is someone I trust as an advisor to tell me when I need to have more courage and also when I need to celebrate some victories I may not have fully recognized. Consider yourself incredibly lucky if you have the opportunity to work with Ryan!
Senior Vice President of People
My experience working with Ryan was fantastic. Every conversation we had led to new valuable insights. Ryan has an exceptional ability to direct a conversation towards the root of the matter. Often, I would start off in a direction and Ryan would ask deeper questions, resulting in valuable insights that directly led to improved outcomes with my key stakeholders.
VP of IT, Production Operations and Security
Call Ryan now! I was stuck in victim mode, placing blame on everyone and anyone because dealing with my own issues in a productive way was too much – I didn’t know where to start. Calling Ryan and learning about my customized coaching plan was all I needed. I wasn’t entirely sure where our journey would lead, but I soon found out that I was growing in ways I could have never imagined. Fast forward to the end of 2020 (and in a pandemic)- I won the highest HR award in my company and promoted in the same year after going through Ryan’s coaching program. Make the call, do the work and show up – you won’t be disappointed!

Senor Data Consultant
Ryan has been the best coaching experience of my career. Thoughtful, Helpful and Honest are words I use to describe how he coaches. He’s an excellent listener with a myriad of great frameworks to help business leaders find great approaches to solving real business problems. I would recommend Ryan to any leader that wants the support of a coach regardless of what business you are in. His input is valuable across many categories of business and functions.
To be effectively coached you need to feel safe and understood, but addressed with unsparing candor. Ryan excels at both. He created an environment where I could be candid yet challenged. He helped me identify actionable insights specific to my aspirations.
The coaching engagement with Ryan set me up for success with a significant role change – international assignment, new function, new leadership team, and culture. First impressions are so important, and with Ryan’s help, I was able to make a big impact quickly in my new role. I would recommend his coaching to anyone preparing for a role transition.
VP, Corporate Strategy
I reached a pivotal point in my career where I needed to transition from being an operational doer to a person who empowers a team and steps back from the day-to-day to focus more on strategic initiatives. Ryan was critical in helping me through this transition. He has an incredible ability to help you come to your own realisations about what you need to do to propel yourself forward. He asks thoughtful questions and has a deep understanding of the different theories and methods out there to help solve issues and reframe your thinking. His sessions don’t consist of him doing all the talking. He really makes you think through what your goals and aspirations are and helps you frame a path to get there. The positive, supportive, thoughtful, action-oriented, and accountability-based approach that Ryan takes is one that I’d highly recommend to anyone looking for career support.
VP, Global Procurement
Ryan’s coaching was a catalyst which enabled me to build higher self-awareness and to think about my leadership impact on others in a way I could not have achieved on my own. I would recommend his services to others ready to take themselves to another level in life, work & leadership.
