"Sally Bendersky coached the team of Managers and Assistant Managers at my company, Electroandina, and she was also my coach during 2007. Thanks to her dedication, coaching skills and empathy I was able to make important shifts in my productivity and that of my collaborators and I also made huge improvements in my relationships within my own team, my peers and bosses. It is thanks to her and her methods that I learned to work in teams and managed to deliver unimaginable outcomes prior to my coaching sessions with her.Today I am much more flexible, respectful and I have become a good listener. I have learned to delegate and I consider myself responsible for improving the general mood of my team. I have also been able to move from reacting to situations into proposing new methods and ideas.I am truly grateful for alI I have been able to learn from Sally. Working with her as a coach has been immensely transformative, productive and rewarding."

-Arnoldo Valdés, Business and Development Assistant Manager, Electroandina S.A.

"I have learned complex algorithms, advanced mathematics and lots of econometrics, but at one point in my life I was not able to decipher the reflections coming from the mirror. I saw distorted images which led me to deep sadness, anger and grief. One day I received, through my email, the name of a person who generously gave me a treasure.

This person is Sally Bendersky, my coach. She gave me lenses that cleared my eyesight. I could see the world again in all its fullness, with its intensity and warm colors. The mirror showed me a person that I could recognize once again. I began to work (and still am at it) on understanding and getting rid of what is not good for me and at the same time I started driving my energy into my full potential.

I can now say I am a 2.0 version. I am nurturing my second child, my family relationships have greatly improved and I found a wonderful job. I wish there was a stronger word than THANKS to express my deep gratefulness to Sally."
