His coaching has helped build my own skills as a facilitator and servant leader.

By learning and applying what he's taught me I've learned how to carry myself in conversations with other co-workers, how to address conflicts, and how to foster a great culture with each individual scrum team I work with. Overall, my experience with Andrei has been great!"

"I am very pleased with my experience so far with Vladimir as a mentor. He has offered very helpful advice and exercises that have helped me collect my thoughts and refine my career goals. I am thankful for him holding me accountable to the things I said I would do. I've had many outstanding items on the to-do list that I viewed as difficult/daunting tasks, such as traveling to conferences and meeting people online, but they'd ultimately help me get closer to my goals. Happy to say I've finally crossed off many of those items off my list. Vladimir has also connected me with people from companies that I wanted to learn more about, pushed me to be more introspective and question my own opinions/beliefs, and provided excellent book recommendations based on my needs. I've only had 3 sessions with Vladimir thus far but I can say that I've already had a significant shift in my mindset and outlook on life, and I hope it will continue this way. Expect to meet every 2-3 weeks for ~45 minutes per session. You will need the time in between sessions to complete "homework assignments," which are action items that Vladimir will assign to you as you share your needs. "

"I'm a senior PM in a big tech company, and I started working with Anna because I wanted to improve my leadership skills. Anna has been an amazing coach so far, and I highly recommend working with her. We started by (1) articulating my high level goals, (2) assessing my strengths and weaknesses to better understand where I currently stand, and (3) developing a concrete action plan to help me achieve my goals. During subsequent sessions we regularly checked in on my progress against goals and discussed challenges and obstacles I am facing. What set Anna apart was her holistic approach. When we realized some of my initial goals weren't firing up my motivation, she prompted me to step back and revisit my life and career aspirations on a broader spectrum. This encouraged me to reassess my path and align it with my larger life objectives – a crucial course correction. Anna’s mentoring style is flexible and she adapted her approach to cater to my evolving requirements. Working with Anna has been incredibly valuable. If you're looking to reflect and/or act on your career or life goals, I highly recommend Anna. She's a coach who truly cares about her clients and their progress. "

"Livio is a great mentor and I highly recommend him! I contacted Livio a few months back because I was unhappy of my job and needed help to increase my chances to find alternatives as soon as possible. Thanks to him I understood I had to first find clarity over what I like to do and what can be achieved within a reasonable timeframe, and drafted a plan for the next year to improve certain hard skills. He's very smart and capable of framing complex situations even with lack of context and incomplete information. Also he's a major help in bringing clarity and untangle doubts and confusion that might arise in moments of lack of lucidity due to stress or general job-related unhappiness. He has years of experience and multiple times has provided valuable insights also to open-generic questions unrelated to the main topic of discussion during the call. Again, highly recommeded!"

"Malvik is great; he's communication skills are top-notch, not only when responding via chat but verbally, too he really takes his time to talk and is easy to understand. My favourite about him is his honesty and objectivity. He will tell you where his experience lies, and won't be afraid to tell you if he isn't quite as well-versed in something. Nonetheless, he will provide advice according to your circumstances and now allow his bias to dictate what is best."
