Thanks for your note and kind words during our coaching discussions.  I have enjoyed our get-togethers and learned from you different approaches I might take on how to put into perspective what is happening around me and to me.  All of this, I am sure, will help me to cope and survive going forward.  Thanks again and I expect I will be seeing you.

You are a major reason the workplace improvement committee has been successful. You have also been a significant asset to OM in teaching the staff about planning, setting goals and working effectively. I know the staff has benefited from their exposure to you. I hope you continue your involvement with OM.

Herb and Hinda, you are terrific!  It was especially important for GOER to have the Division of Motor Vehicles project go well. The session was valuable and this material makes it more so. These enhancements will have a positive effect as well as for the other agencies. Thank you.

Thank you, Herb.  I think I will read the lessons from your coaching recap every morning when I start work.  I’ve also asked myself, what would Herb tell me to do in this situation?  You’ve been very helpful and I’ve learned a lot from you.

Hinda and Herb, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your work in support of Total Quality Organization (TQO) in the Midwest District.  Your efforts with our Partnership Council supported our TQO goals in a very significant way.  You assisted us through some very difficult times.  Your skills and expertise were greatly appreciated by the entire Council.  I appreciate your willingness to be a part of this and hope that you will be able to continue to provide your skills and expertise in the same way to the new organization.  Thank you for everything you have done.

Herb and Hinda, this was a very painful process made much easier by your expertise and personalities.  I personally appreciate your ability to remain non defensive when challenged and your considerable skill in refocusing the group back to the issue at hand.  Your flip-charting was very effective and helped me organize my thoughts and understand what others were attempting to get across.  I also appreciated the fact that you did not always defer to management or the person with the loudest voice!  I learned so much.  Thanks for a well-run, profitable, enjoyable program.
