Testimonials For Upward Solutions Coaching and Consulting

  • Lori, Can’t say enough positive things about your work with the Engineer’s Office! Your positivity has been infectious on all of us and the content of your message and facilitation in helping people find their styles and learn and grow with that understanding has been an invaluable resource for us.

    Frank Antenucci, Esq. Administrator Geauga County Engineer's Office
  • The workshop that you facilitated for our board helped me to get to know the people better in a very efficient manner versus trying to read them for a year or two worth of meetings. You have a natural gift for this sort of thing. I believe it will absolutely have an impact on our ability to communicate effectively and improve efficiency!

    Christopher Pierce

    A key differentiator for 363 is CommentSmart! It saves time, reduces stress and is an exclusive selectable comments feature that allows raters to choose from highly-tested, behavior-focused comments to give more richness, context, and depth to their feedback. This also allows for more anonymity for the raters and more focused, balanced, constructive feedback—that the leader can actually use. Contact us to learn more about what makes 363 different!
