coaxes it along.
I can always count on Synthia
to see what's really going on.
The sessions with Synthia
gave me a stronger sense of how to control my current financial situation and therefore improve it.
In that process, she
guided me to turn my monthly budget into a visual format so that, my being an artist and very kinesthetic, I could connect with and own the situation with more peace.
In working with Synthia

My situation is unique in that my family lives overseas, so I was excited to develop a coaching relationship that worked via email and regular long-distance phone conversations.

helped me design and deliver a grass roots culture shift initiative for our mid-level managers that is still operational to this day (16 months after its creation and 12 months after our leadership changes.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Synthia Smith
I have known her
for three years.
Our Coaching time ranged from February 2005 to December 2005, and January 2006 to June 2006.

After extensive coaching and discernment, I was able to make an executive decision and I clearly understood the impact on my business and my life.
I recommend Synthia's coaching tools, skills, and talent highly.
