After transitioning from a mid-sized state institution to a small private school, it became evident that I could benefit from leadership coaching to help strengthen my interpersonal skills and communications strategies. For me, Ballentine Consulting Partners provided the ideal leadership coach. He was highly perceptive, especially when it came to the social and interpersonal nuances of academia, and had an amazing depth of experience. Skilled at developing creative strategies to address leadership and team-related issues, he helped me to take ownership of my situation. Because of his coaching, I am now a better leader, both for my colleagues and my institution.
