Testimonials For Extraordinary Life, Inc.

  • 16 years into my business and I had plateaued. I thought I was doing all the right things but they weren’t working. I was very frustrated and started doubting whether my life’s goals were even possible. Over the past 2 years of working with Al, I'm enjoying two record years in my business, loving my work and life, and have more time for my family!

    Jim Chakires CEO & Founder, APEX CPA's & Consultants
  • "I've worked with Al for four years and my leadership skills before him were not productive to building a great business and culture. I dreaded going to work due to the culture and people I had in my organization. Now I can say the ROI of coaching with Al is well into seven figures, and I now enjoy leadership and growing my company."

    Mark Podl CEO, Doran Scales, Inc.
  • "This is the first time in my life that I feel like I have total clarity around my career and something I can go after and get excited about! It wasn’t even close when we started. It’s funny, but I have more time in my life, even though I’m doing more! Life is fuller and less frenetic. I’m doing more with less time, and it's been only 3 months!"

    James Kelly Bond Analyst
  • "I’ve improved my ability to lead, build trust, and create greater employee engagement and effectiveness. I anticipate this will impact our company to achieve tangible benefits of potentially $1 million, by helping us implement our continuous improvement efforts and achieving improved operating efficiencies. I highly recommend working with Al!"

    Andy Kotlarz CFO, Now Health Group
  • "Partnering with Al for my personal and professional growth has been one of the smarter decisions of my life. It really helped me to learn how to quickly shift my perspective and become far more effective both personally and professionally. Since working with Al, I’m far more nimble in my response to challenges. I wholeheartedly recommend Al!"

    Chris Toft VP of Development, Advocate IL Masonic Medical Center, Chicago


  • We Make Senior Level Leader's Lives Work - Integrating Their Life, Leadership & Legacy

    WHAT HAVE YOU LEFT UNTAPPED? For many leaders, bigger questions remain dormant and hidden, waiting to be ignited. Extraordinary Life, Inc., is the spark that helps visionary leaders focus outward and chart their next course with conviction and clarity. Do you relate to the following issues?

    NOW WHAT? The perspective from the top can be hazy: which course to chart next?

    WHAT REALLY MATTERS? Leaders have difficulty enjoying their success. Unnecessary sacrifices or mis-steps have been made, whether overworked, disconnected family relationships, discarded hobbies, or poor health, leaving a dusty trail of unfulfillment.

    WHO DO I TRUST? Despite demands for leaders to make the “right” decisions, it can feel impossible to find experienced support that doesn’t hide a personal agenda or subjective bias.

    We are your solution strategist and trusted confidant. We help veteran leaders overcome these challenges at the top to return to clarity, conviction!

  • Senior Level Team Development

    Our programs are customized to meet the unique needs of a particular team. Typical focus areas may include: deepening trust, building alignment, engaging in productive conflict, and appreciation and respect for differences (i.e., personality, culture, gender, age, etc.). We help team's build trust and to become more efficient, effective, and to gain high quality outcomes more easily and quickly.
