Moving Forward Towards Independence

From the first moment we spoke, I was reassured of Eric Douglas’ commitment to our organization and to keeping our Board on a purposeful track.

Early Edge California

I would highly recommend Eric Douglas as an executive coach. His knowledge and experience as a coach were invaluable to me during a critical period of organizational change. He pushed me to ask challenging questions about myself and my organization that led to improved effectiveness. And his guidance was invaluable as I made strategic decisions that took into account the fluid landscape, windows of opportunity, and greater connection and collaboration with other groups.
