Testimonials for SPARX International

  • “Making meaningful change is not easy and neither is committing to the process of working with a coach whose primary purpose is to get you out of your comfort zone and make uncomfortable changes. That’s the thing-they don’t do it for you. YOU have to do this for yourself with their strategic guidance and support. It’s a process and commitment."

    Allyson U.
  • Dorothy is a very talented performance coach and dedicated business partner. She excels at public speaking, as well as executive and group coaching sessions. Always professional, and meticulous, I recommend Dorothy for executive/manager positions.

    Clark S
  • In the many times I partnered with Dorothy to work with advisors she clearly demonstrated a commitment to excellence, in depth knowledge and experience. She is able to articulate her ideas with a high energy level that motivates others to take action and improve overall performance. Dorothy is an impactful and trustworthy; a natural leader.

    Chris C
  • Dorothy is a detail-oriented professional who never lets "checking the box" get in the way of getting the job done. She is both compassionate and caring while never losing sight of the goal or focus on the outcome. I strongly endorse Dorothy Patrick.
