Neal is an amazing career coach at every step of the process. He is organized, detailed, punctual, encouraging, and a strategic thinker. Neal not only coached me through the SPHR study process, but took his personal time to study side by side with me, review my study plan and tools, and made effective recommendations for success. I am thrilled to report that I passed the exam with his support and invaluable coaching. I have now hired Neal as a career coach and together we are designing a career road map that includes tackling my job search, evaluating job possibilities,and job interviewing debriefings. We are in the process of evaluating my experience with future career possibilities and aligning with my personal life/work balance goals and my passion. My life has been enriched greatly by his services and coaching, and I know I will be more successful with him as a partner. Are you inspired every day and feel passion about what you do? I plan to find my passion with Neal’s coaching and career plan program!! I highly recommend him and his services.”

As a training coordinator, it is my job to identify and implement learning solutions based on my internal customers’ needs and interests. At times, the best solutions are a blend of internal and external talent. So, it is not uncommon for us to use external partners as part of a larger solution or program. I have had to work with many contractors and consultants, and the experience working with Neal Henderson was one of the best. Neal’s workshop on Bridging the Generations was a great addition to a specific leadership curriculum on leading across generations. Moreover, he added tremendous value during the lunch by facilitating an informal discussion on organizational goals surrounding leadership strategy. Neal was attentive to our needs and audience and exhibited great flexibility by adapting quickly to operational circumstances which made all the difference to the success of the program.”
