After selling my company I spent some time trying to figure out what to do next. Giving up my corporate role felt like I was giving up my whole identity. But fortunately, somebody suggested I call Barbara Waxman. She helped me think clearly about my interests; allowed me to find my own process for decision making; and gave me a host of ideas I still use on a daily basis. Barbara is wise, thoughtful, supportive and– in a good way– tough. I recommend her highly.Kirk Citron, Founder AKQA
As an educator, I’ve cultivated a solid foundation in youth development, but personally, I’ve realized that I lack the same level of expertise regarding my own development as an adult. Enter Barbara. I was fortunate to discover her and engage her as an executive coach.
Barbara’s frank expertise has been so useful in naming my experiences, providing perspective, and framing the challenges and opportunities intrinsic in this stage of my work and life. I’m grateful for her as a thought partner, resource and skillful gerontologist and thrilled with the work we did together that was reflective and productive.Alison Parks, Blink Diversity Consultant

I’d recommended Barbara to anyone contemplating a change; whether it is personal or professional.Deborah Glasser, Principal Glasser Labor Relations
I came away from sessions with Barbara feeling that I had been deeply heard, challenged to consider and reconsider my ideas and plans, and had a new or ‘tweaked’ direction in which to move – steps to take. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone, especially if you have changes upcoming in your life or if you wish to make plans for changes.Colleen Foran, President Potential Plus Ltd.
Barbara is deeply committed to advancing leadership and performance of individuals and teams both at home and at work.
