Heart & Soul Life Coaching, Writer, Educator

Leonard’s creative process really helped me distill and clarify my values, how I like to work, what’s most important to me, and how to go about creating the type of life work that fulfills, pays, and opens new opportunities. I can’t recommend Leonard’s service enough…

Joe Hager

I recently moved to Minnesota and knew exactly where I wanted to work. I kept getting interviews, but no offers. I was discouraged and frustrated, as my qualifications matched what people were looking for. I contacted Leonard for interview coaching. …and as a result, within just a couple of weeks I had two interviews and received job offers from both. I am now working at the organization I had most hoped for a job at. I would recommend Leonard unconditionally. .. I found his advice invaluable.

Hana Boston

Within six months of taking your lifework program, I had organized and founded a $250,000 statewide partnership for youth tobacco prevention… Because of your program, it is much easier pursuing passions and dreams, turning visions into actions.

Rick Bernardo

I consulted with Leonard when I was at a critical point in my career: I was facing both a new job opportunity and a salary/role negotiation in my current position. Leonard helped me sort through my options and, most importantly, helped me figure out the best scenario for ME. Now, just a few weeks after my coaching with Leonard, I’m making more money and doing the work I really want to do!

Dee J

Leonard helped me navigate through some tough career choices to determine what really mattered to me. He also helped me work through political and communication issues at work. Now I’m in exactly the right job and career, and I have a long-range vision for where I’m headed. I’d strongly recommend him to anyone struggling with a career or job decision.
