Until working with Dr. Kevin Fleming, I’d always wondered what was stopping me from having a full life. For years I’d suffered the see-saw of work success OR personal life success. And, the people around me seemed to have the same troubles. While I was alternating between work and personal focuses, however, I often alternated between reluctantly accepting my situation and desperately wanting a better life. Finally, as I neared my 40th birthday milestone, I decided that I would make a personal commitment to creating more balance and more prosperity. I researched executive coaches extensively and settled on Dr. Fleming for two key reasons: He wasn’t interested in that “touchy-feely” approach that so often goes nowhere He immediately understood my situation and made clear, tangible recommendations about how to proceed.. He has an excellent approach to conducting business. We agreed that I would begin with a 360-degree assessment. Dr. Fleming initiated the formal 360 Evaluation; facilitated the survey analysis and reports; and, conducted a thorough feedback session with me. Having had some experience with other profile-building tools as well as the Myers-Briggs tests, I thought I knew what to expect. I was wrong. The reports and accompanying information were, quite frankly, superior to anything that I’d ever imagined. Reviewing the extensive materials was like seeing an x-ray of my life. I was able to quickly and clearly see how I was essentially coping with life – not setting myself up to thrive. As I begin the next chapter of my professional relationship – and my life, I am focused and invigorated. The reports and Dr. Fleming’s guidance has allowed me to be aware of my faulty perspectives and embrace healthier, more productive ones. For the first time in four decades I have a clear sense of what I need to work on – and get this – it’s fun.
