Ms. Hamlin coaches from a place of thoughtful authenticity. She not only made a significant impact on my leadership abilities but, far deeper, she facilitated the growth of my perspective and outlook on life. She first sought to understand my core values, needs, and motivations and carefully found the words to help me walk through the blurry mental landscapes to find illuminated understanding. I can honestly say that Ms. Hamlin is an amazing coach. She is fundamentally a good, caring, and wise person who has learned how to adeptly guide people through individual development journeys.
