“Tangible Results” or “Return on Investment” are not the terms I would recommend for defining the value of Erik’s coaching. They would require “marketing math” or “making stuff up”. The value in working with Erik is the clarity of strategic thinking he fosters and the courage to take bold action he unleashes. It’s impossible to quantify the ROI, but I assure you it builds a more successful future. Erik helped me gain a healthy objectivity about my business and my team. I could not have done without his help. How do you put a dollar value on being the best you can be? You can’t put a metric on that but believe me it’s tangible.
