"Vivian took time to really engage with me on what mattered most to me during our time together. Once she knew my goals, she didn't hesitate to challenge me and drive accountability to help me think and act differently. Working with Vivian has helped me be more accepting of my "humanness" as a leader and made me realize that I do not need to aim for perfection in leadership - I just need to "be me" and lead."

Vivian is simply a fantastic coach. Vivian facilitated a 6 week group executive coaching session that I was involved in. Throughout the experience we were challenged, encouraged and provided a safe space for us all to share our experiences, views and grapple with the thought provoking material that Vivian expertly took us through. I found Vivian to have an innate ability to connect with the group and encourage the quieter members of the group to contribute whilst gently helping the louder members (like me!) not to dominate the sessions. I was able to immediately apply a number of the techniques Vivian took us through, in both my personal and professional life.

Vivian is a remarkable insightful and gifted professional coach. During my time working with Vivian, she helped me quickly determine areas for growth and opportunity – and challenged some of my perception in a way that provided great clarity. Because of her deep experience there really is not a challenge or circumstance that she has not seen and helped solve. Perhaps most important, Vivian really cares about her clients in a way that is authentic and empowering. The result: she really inspires and guides you to be your very best - however you define it. If you are looking for a professional coach – look no further!

Through our coaching sessions, Vivian Rank pointed out the times I’d dig in, I’d shrink down and the times my eyes would light up--All important cues to where I was limiting myself or areas I should explore further. This isn’t a passive relationship—she will push you, give you homework, and make you explore uncomfortable spaces. She will then practically jump out of her chair with excitement when you have an ah-hah moment. If you’re looking for someone to help you focus on a goal, Vivian is a great partner and advocate! I truly value the time I’ve spent with her.

I was fortunate to have Vivian coach me... She provided valuable feedback, perspective and advice during a challenging point in my career. I discovered different tools and techniques to plow down roadblocks, and learned to lean on my strengths to solve difficult problems. The experience was invaluable!

"Through Vivian's coaching, I was able to transition to a career I'm passionate about. Vivian asked the hard questions and challenged me to really think about why I wasn't doing what I really love. Often times, there is a mind block, or a set way of thinking, causing us to carry out our day-to-day activities without feeling fulfilled. I believe we each have a purpose in life and coaching can bring out your ultimate purpose where you're excited to face each day and step out of the day-to-day routine.
I will forever be grateful to Vivian's coaching and challenging my mind set. It's true: Be Coached, Be Challenged, Be Changed. I'm forever changed! Thank you Vivian!"

Vivian has that rare combination of real-world business experience and deep connection to her clients as individuals. She is full of optimism PLUS realism - which I love. While she challenges me to see and make choices, she always leaves me feeling capable. I am a better business leader for having worked with Vivian.
