Dar has helped me unlock my potential as a leader through our monthly coaching process. Each session she has a focus area that builds on the previous and systematically builds confidence, resilience, awareness, and other attributes needed for leadership today.  In working with Dar, I hope to bring a bigger impact to those in both my personal and professional life.
