“Maurice was a wonderful coach. His ability to listen with intent and provide profound and right on feedback was instrumental to me. He gave me pivotal feedback in my negative self-talk that I’m not worthy or feeling guilty; and therefore, unable to hear positive feedback without being emotional. He also was great in preparing me for interacting with ease with executives and conquering my hesitation or resistance in having 1:1’s with them or having informal or less formal interactions.”

“My experience with Maurice has been transformational. We connected from the start of our engagement. He has provided me with a safe space to explore and develop my leadership brand and philosophy. Also, provided me with a playbook on how to continue growing as a leader. This has helped me to transition into a senior leadership role within my organization. Given that I got promoted during the coaching... It's difficult to place a monetary value on this experience (as I think it's priceless) but, this has helped during one of the most crucial transition periods during my professional career.”
