Mi. May 2007. A Technical Services Engagement / Project Manager for
a large national bank contracted with Everest Training & Coaching
as a project manager coach to help her be more assertive while employing
a higher level of emotional intelligence.
"My project teams are scattered around the country
and the majority of my project team meetings are conducted via telephone"
said the project manager. "I received an evaluation that my communication
skills needed development so I found Ed Pritchard and Everest Training
on the Internet and thought the Everest program model would be just
what I needed to help
communicate more effectively. I had to pay the coaching fee
from my own pocket, and I feel the fee was well worth the time and insights
provided by Ed. Ed was able to pin point some communication weaknesses,
that while challenging to modify, have generated a number of positive
comments from my project team members. Some of the concepts Ed discussed
were covered in the courses I took to be certified as a project management
professional, which was good validation, and some of his suggestions
were new. I have been working on controlling the meetings more, looking
for ways to influence and persuade project team members and concentrating
on my voice modulation and energy level to communicate thoughts and
feelings. I would recommend this coaching to any PMP wishing to kick
their skills up a notch - definitely a good investment on my part."
& Consulting is committed to enabling organizations to innovate
to profitability: to apply critical communication, service and leadership
skills to create a competitive advantage and to maximize each person's
