Our Clients' Thoughts…


“I found the emotional intelligence assessment to be an incredible resource as I was looking to push myself to the next level of performance professionally. The assessment gave me a constructive reflection of myself and I used that to guide behaviors, decisions and my leadership path forward. I still think back on my Ei assessment as a point of reference of where I’ve come from and where I’m going. .”
–Christine Csizmadia, Senior Manager for State Outreach , Nuclear Energy Institute

“Winning Ways has helped provide the encouragement and endless energy for my enterprise that has enabled me to experience the success of a truly rewarding business.”
–Barbara Berry, Owner, Barbara Berry Photographic Artist

“After 30 plus years I was struggling to move my business forward.  Joan helped me set priorities and negotiate this rough patch.  I highly recommend Winning Ways whether you need to completely reorganize or just tune up your business.”
–Rob Carter, President, R&R Auto Service

“With your help on interviewing and assessments I took your advice on hiring our last employee so I thought you should know how he is doing.  He may be the best hire I have ever made.  So far I would give him an A+ in the three most important skills I need, accuracy, speed, and communication.  As soon as we give him a project it’s completed and done accurately.  I asked him to write a letter to a client and to my shock I did not have to make one edit to the letter.  He is going to run circles around the person he replaced.  Therefore, I wanted to let you know that your advice was correct as usual.”
–Daniel G. Gilliland, CPA- President, Gilliland & Assocaites

“Joan is the best sales coach I have ever worked with.  Her passion for helping her clients exceed their goals is contagious. She has inspired me to set goals that will not only help my business flourish, they will make my whole life better.”

“I felt the coaching experience was very positive, and I will definitely recommend this to others. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I think you (Joan) had a great coaching style, you enabled me to almost help myself, which is saying a lot! I not only learned how to verbalize areas in which I needed improvement, but also learned what type of support I desired. This experience was very positive in the sense that it enabled me to better support and know myself and my employees. I think transformational leaders should attend individualized coaching.”
–Anne Marie Chartrand, NICU Nurse Manager, INOVA Fairfax Hospital for Children
