Julie was a great addition to our Coaching program at Clif Bar & Co.. She brings wisdom, compassion and excellent practical insights to her coaching and has assisted many of our employees through difficult transitions or helped them find clarity around a work or life questions. I receive compliments all the time from employees raving about Julie’s coaching—how much it has helped and how much they enjoy working with her.

The business world is abundant with leadership coaches, and I often wonder what draws people to this work. Is it a deep desire to support the development of others and help them succeed… that comes from a giving, caring place…or is it for personal ego gratification? Julie represents the former. She is open, authentic and empathetic. Many people say of her: “It is so easy to talk to you!” Isn’t that the key ingredient of working with a coach…someone you feel comfortable opening up to and confident they will support you in whatever way is needed in order to help you get to where you want to go and become the leader you want to be?
I look forward to opportunities to bring Julie into any of my valued clients. She is a fantastic collaborator, puts 110% of herself into her work and is always looking to get better!

It is my pleasure to recommend Julie Stuart — Julie is a fantastic presenter and leader, having trained our management team on coaching others. She facilitated several workshops and created a coaching model for our team to follow. Her training was well received as it was positive and grounded at the same time. Julie is someone I will certainly keep in mind for future trainings!

Sometimes it’s hard to break down and ask for help. Whether it’s the pride of being independent or just the fact that we, as strong individuals, think that we can handle it all sometimes, but every so often we need that “thing” to help ground us, make us feel human and that everything will be ok. That’s what I am lucky enough to have from Julie Stuart.
I was a little embarrassed at first to think that I needed coaching., I am a mom and a professional and thought I could handle it all, but I was fortunate enough to have the chance to meet and be coached by Julie. Julie is one of the most authentic, caring and genuine people I have ever met. She guided me in directions that I would have never had the strength and determination to guide myself. She didn’t just coach me, she provided the tools for me to coach and guide myself. She allowed and pushed me to “think for myself” and dig deep to find the answers and directions inside me. I am thankful to not only have the pleasure to call Julie my coach but a friend as well.

Thank you Julie for working your magic by connecting with me and help me realize my potential.
