What participants are saying

“I’m such a fan of this support. Marissa is exceptional at what she does, and being able to gain access due to your program has made an immense impact on my work.” Aleeza Lubin, Upstart

“My coach is such a thoughtful listener. She would ask open-ended questions, check for understanding regarding what she heard, and guided me to practical steps to put into practice. She gave me “homework” to keep me on track and moving forward, and also reviewed goals to make sure she was supporting me as needed in my role. The coaching sessions were open enough to share updates and new challenges and structured enough to determine best action/next steps to address items discussed.” Denise Crevin, The Shalom School

“I don’t think that I would be where I am now professionally without my coach’s help this year – I am deeply grateful for this program and will continue to speak of it highly to all of my colleagues.” Hadas Rave, Temple Sinai

“This coaching opportunity came at a critical juncture in my career and leadership. I was able to leverage the coaching to improve my current work situation, identify and address issues in my leadership, and make the most of a sabbatical offered through my work.” Aliza Mazor, Upstart
