My company, HOMER, an ed tech start up based in New York engaged Mandy as a Leadership Coach for our executive team a little over a year ago. Since that time, Mandy has received universal positive reviews from every one of our Managers. Her coaching has had a measurable impact on the team’s ability to have direct conversations, create structures for accountability, and think strategically. All of which has positively impacted company performance. Coaching has been one of the most worthwhile investments HOMER has made to date.
I’ve been fortunate enough to benefit from Mandy Schumaker’s consulting on two critical areas of our business: human resources: specifically how we motivate and inspire our team, and ongoing leadership coaching for all members of our management team including myself. Both have made a significant positive impact on our business. The leadership coaching is one on one and has offered unique opportunities for both skills development and problem solving with each of the members of the team. The Human Resources workshops and action plans have impacted how we interact with our teams, measure performance and communicate with our team members. I could not be more pleased with the results and plan on continuing our investment with Mandy. I am abundantly grateful for her insights, experience, candor, and advice. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a strong, experienced consultant, coach and mentor. She is the best!
I’m so grateful for Mandy! She’s given me a new focus and direction for Star Polisher that feels really, really good! I’m so excited about my business again and inspired to make the commitment and go forward!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Working with Mandy was a smart move I made to grow my business. As a new business owner I needed to start from the basics. Mandy helped me to hone my business story/message, reach out for speaking engagements, find ideal clients, price my services and much more.
Mandy not only kept me focused on my goals while supporting me when I bumped into road blocks, but she was there to remind me, each week, where I am now and where I want to be. This was priceless since I (as many other people) tend to “forget” my goals and where I want to take my business. Mandy sure knows how to help small business owners build there business. If it wasn’t for her guidance and support, I would probably still feel stuck and unsure of the right direction for my business.
Now I’m much more focused, results driven and clear about how to take my business to the next level and generate the income I desire!
Mandy has been a true asset to our business.
Her contagious, and positive energy helped breath new life into our insurance agency. With Mandy’s help, we were able to set clear expectations for our staff and have identified key traits to look for in new employees.
Mandy also helped us to create a company culture that not only attracts, but retains excellent talent.
My entire attitude about my business has changed since I met Mandy. More importantly my attitude about myself has changed as well.
I was never able to say “No” to my clients, charities, or anyone that asked for a favor. I put everyone before myself. This left me working 16 hours a day, seven days a week. Mandy taught me how to value my personal time while remaining responsible to my clients. The shift for them has been a little difficult, but the 6am and 10pm calls have stopped. I now select the organizations to which I donate my time, I have set office hours, and I make time for my friends. I am healthier, happier, and much more productive. Now I am excited about my work and I truly enjoy my time with friends and family without my former guilt.
I cannot say enough about Mandy’s insight, humor, and genuine dedication to understanding each client’s individual needs.
