What Clients Say

Leadership Coaching

Clare Novak is a strong executive coach, able to ask probing questions, provide accurate feedback and hold people accountable for meeting their goals.

Bob Edmondson, CEO Atlantic Credit Union, Retired

You can't get a better coach than Clare Novak. I've known Clare for a number of years, and most recently she coached me using the Strengths Finder assessment. I left the session with not only a full understanding of how the tool can be used, but how to directly apply what I learned in my own development and work process.

Clare is direct and fair in her coaching technique and is one of the smartest people I know. She has the ability to adapt her style, effectively coaching executives and individual contributors alike. I highly recommend her for any organization looking to further develop its leaders.

Ellen Johnston, Field Human Resources Manager at Edward Jones

Clare kept me accountable and always pushed; I appreciate that. It's been very, very positive for me.

Paul Miller, President, Nilfisk-cfm

It as been a privilege to work beside Clare during Gallup's Strengths Coaching Certification program. She is a natural born leader. Clare has talents in dealing with things rationally and logically and she has a strong "business" focus, this is probably why she sees challenges to be surmountable (and she is not scared to be the one responsible for surmounting them). Clare has a drive for leadership, which is well served by her quickness to grasp complexities, her ability to understand a large amount of information and her quick and decisive judgment. Her unique "Command" talent and her communication skills make her a "take charge" person.

You feel at ease when you are working with Clare She is very involved, understands the corporate world quite naturally and she is constantly turning potential problems into solutions. During our training, not only was she working faster than anybody else, she was tireless in her efforts to visualize where the group was heading. If you are looking for an experienced coach who has a tremendous amount of personal power and presence that will work for you as a force towards achieving your goals, you will have to work with Clare.

Clare was the first coach to be certified in our group,. She has extremely high standards and expectations. She is direct and straightforward and she is genuinely interested in people's career objectives. Enthusiastic and energetic, she takes her commitments very seriously.

Daniel Touchette, Organizational Guidance Counsellor

I felt comfortable and able to be open and honest with her about any issue or topic; she provided a lot of insight into some of the problems I had. She always did the follow up and when we discussed things we could see if there was progress or not, and if not, Clare always had a good angle on things to move them forward.
