I was referred to Dr. Ostrov by my organization in an effort to hone my listening skills and personal communication style to enable me to optimize my performance in the arena of fund raising. Dr. Ostrov’s coaching built upon the positive aspects of my personality, while encouraging me to explore and utilize the opposite personality traits, such as intuition and feeling, to help me develop a more empathic style. While still a work in process, this deliberate “softening” of my personality has helped me achieve both my organizational and personal goals of successfully interacting with higher profile (and higher giving potential) individuals in a more relaxed, graceful and ultimately effective manner.
I would strongly recommend Dr. Ostrov to anyone who is looking to better understand their own personality and communication style, and how it enhances or limits one’s effectiveness in dealing with others. Dr. Ostrov will use those findings to broaden one’s skill set which will ultimately enhance behavior that can lead to improved business performance.
