Testimonials

Executive Coaching 

I had the pleasure of working with Ruth Brothers as my Executive Coach and found the experience to be valuable and key to my continued career success. Ruth quickly built a rapport with me while assessing my needs and the areas of focus. Her listening skills made her a quick study of my industry. I was impressed by her grasp of the nuances of my business and retention of the players.

Ruth is empathetic while being direct and diligent so that we stayed on course and met our agreed objectives. She holds herself to a very high standard of performance and expected the same of me. I appreciated being challenged through our conversations and in the homework assignments and I am a more skilled, confident and productive executive as a result.

As a demonstration of Ruth’s dedication to her craft, while we are no longer working together she continues to check in with me and shares articles of interest. She is genuine in her desire to see me succeed and that is the quality that I believe best defines Ruth and is the reason for her success.

Results and Personal Success by Partnering and Influencing 

My entire team benefited from your workshop on Partnering and Influencing.  Thank you for your expert facilitation and commitment to our success!

Marguerite Thompson-O'Neal, MA, CHRP
Vice President, Human Resources

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop you facilitated. It has given me a new perspective not only on my role as an HR Partner, but how I can better serve and support my client groups. It also allowed me to learn a bit more about myself and provide an insight on where I have personally struggled to fit with the rest of my team – realizing that it may just be a simple of matter of work styles makes it much more understandable.

Irene Jackman, CHRL, B.Comm
HR Business Partner

I am always looking for high level, compelling and useful information that is easily transferable to the workplace. The course I took presented by Ruth Brothers on “Powerful Results by Partnering and Influencing” was right on the mark particularly for employees working in corporate functions. Learning how to partner and influence to get the cooperation and collaboration is key. She was engaging, had great stories to illustrate the learnings and the day sped by!  It was well worth the investment.

Career Strategy

I found Ruth Brothers to be a tremendous resource as I considered making - and then did make - a career transition.  She painted scenarios for me that I might not have otherwise considered, she advised on skill positioning, and she provided some great tactical guidance regarding resources and next steps.

I would recommend Ruth to anyone considering a career change.

Ruth is FANTASTIC! She prepped me with everything from resume help to interview practise to land my dream job. Ruth is a great listener and will make the time and take the time to help you reach your full potential. She asks all the right questions to get you thinking long-term about where you want to be and creates practical steps to get you there. Can't thank Ruth enough for her support!
