Since I started working with her, I feel more confident about my decisions, I am a more effective communicator, and she has observed me in meetings to provide constructive feedback about my style and the differences between how I perceive myself and how others perceive me.”

“Before we started working together my leadership style was to solve problems by doing and by always taking on more. I have grown to learn true leadership building and presence, an understanding I wished I had learned many years ago while working in a high management role at Google. During my year of executive coaching with Gitta , I have grown my scope and built a very strong team, which I see as a success in my journey as a leader. Gitta is a great listener, she always asks the right profound questions which take me deeper into my learning and understanding of my role. I highly recommend her!”
