“The Wikipedia definition of coaching is as follows: “Coaching is a form of development in which a person called a coach supports a learner in achieving a specific goal by providing training and guidance.” Well my experience of being coached by you makes me realize that there are many missing words  in this definition…More than “support a learner”,  a true coach cares, makes oneself available by being one phone call or coffee shop stop away and, not only provides “guidance”, but truly listens and understands that you can’t cut a line between work and personal life  (well at least for me that is!). You truly made a difference in my life by providing the right level of guidance I needed during a very tumultuous moment of my professional and personal life.  You helped me navigate thru the storm with confidence and trust.”

Danick Archambault, Treasury IT Director at Desjardins

Yasmin Cox, Sydney Australia

“I had the pleasure to be coached by Elisabeth Busse in the beginning of my career as a manager at WSP in Sweden. We had several coaching sessions over Skype and Elisabeth made me take several important steps in my leadership. She didn’t give me the solutions, but she helped myself understand the steps necessary for me to take. Just as a coach should act! Her coaching sessions was very structured and there was always a “red tread “from one session to the other. I will always remember Elisabeth’s positive and sharp mind”.

Anders Danielson, WSP Sweden
