Damon is not a therapist, and will remind you of that, but he does provide a sounding board and mirror for anyone going through a career transition, founding a new company or looking to improve their performance as a C-Suite executive. He helped me quickly set meaningful and achievable short, medium and long-term goals and was relentlessly positive throughout our time together.
The process allowed Damon to get a better understanding of my intrinsic motivations and therefore he was able to produce helpful observations and recommendations. I will continue to follow his systems and frameworks and appreciate his follow-ups well after our sessions were complete.
Working with Legacy Mentor was probably the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time. I went into the process thinking I wanted to sell my company in the next 3 – 5 years. And I came out deciding that I didn’t want to sell my company at all. That was an epiphany for me and we have thrived since.
Additionally, my biggest problem was focus. I’m never really sure what I should really be spending most of my time on. The Legacy Mentor process helped me identify what I should be doing in right now to make my long term goals happen. Overall, I would highly recommend to and leader.
I retained Damon during a critical transitional phase of both my career and my life. After more than a decade of establishing a reputation as one of the top executives in my category I was no longer fulfilled at my position.
Damon’s structured coaching program and experience in the corporate world helped me to dial-in what was most important to me in a new role, my optimal career trajectory, and what specifically would result in my happiness. This allowed me to vet opportunities based on defined personal and professional growth goals.
The result of my work with Damon was successful career transition. I was offered an accepted the dream job in my field and returned to the corporate world excited, optimistic and energized.
Damon’s coaching provided a structure for productivity personalized to my work habits and lifestyle that will pay dividends forward as I pursue my new ventures with confidence.
I was extremely skeptical about working with a coach. The hubris founders have as entrepreneurs is natural but misguided because there’s a reason why teams or co-founders outperform individuals.
Damon became my second set of eyes. His ability to give a new perspective on my work, the challenges I was facing, and the potential outcomes, made these three months entirely more productive.
The ability to bounce ideas off someone without the feeling of judgement; an extra set of eyes on strategy, tactics, documents, and talent; a voice of reason when everything that day or week was anything but reasonable; comfort in knowing someone has your back regardless of the outcome of your work.
I didn’t put much value in these things prior to working with Damon but without a doubt I do now.
