"My coaching work was an incredible journey for me. Hilary was very gifted at asking the right questions and holding me accountable for progress on the things I said matter."
"As a CEO, there are very few people who you can rely on to be a dispassionate sounding board. Hilary makes me think about my assumptions and predispositions in a very thoughtful way, which has resulted in better decisions."
"I feel like I have developed some great strategies for managing an increasingly complex job."
"I loved her follow up emails on what we had discussed and next actions."
I highly recommend Hilary Joel as an Executive Coach. She played a crucial role in guiding our nonprofit team through a cause marketing initiative. Hilary's expertise in the nonprofit sector was evident, providing practical insights tailored to our needs.
Hilary encouraged meaningful dialogue and creative problem-solving, ensuring that our team felt empowered to implement her recommendations with confidence.
As a retreat facilitator, Hilary is uniquely skilled at helping a team develop actionable plans for improving performance. She offers the ideal mix of theoretical dexterity and practical insight, allowing teams to both ‘take a step back’ to assess what they’re doing well and prepare real ways of taking steps forward.
No fluff or filler with Hilary—just careful planning, responsive facilitation, and a keen eye for the heart of any issue.
My coaching work was an incredible journey for me. It offered me great clarity on my gifts and things I should pay attention to. Hilary was very gifted at asking the right questions and holding me accountable for progress on the things I said matter. Thanks to her energy, time and expertise, I gained a great deal from the experience. I intend to conduct a quarterly coaching “tune-up” with Hilary on an on-going basis.
I am amazed by how much progress I made in just a few short months working with Hilary. Through our coaching work, I feel like I have developed some great strategies for managing an increasingly complex job.
In our sessions, I addressed things that had been holding me back for years. Hilary knows when to listen and when to dive in with suggestions, recommendations and assignments. She did not let me get away with the same old way of working. She and I developed some great team leadership strategies, which resulted in significant improvements in the work of my team.
