It is with great pleasure to have worked with Caryn Siegel in 2012.

Caryn has been a tremendous resource as an executive coach. She is a highly personable, talented, and creative coach that brings about a great depth and coaching expertise. My experience with her has provided a unique opportunity for growth applicable to both my personal and professional life. Her coaching style was highly effective in raising the awareness with respect to strengths, development areas, organizational dynamics and conflict resolution. Many thanks to Caryn for this wonderful experience.

Matt Olson Director of Product Management - Global Consumer Selling at eBay

Caryn's coaching and expertise was exactly what I needed to take my career to the next level. Not only did I learn more about myself but she taught me how to better understand my colleagues; and this is one of the secrets to career success. Under Caryn's tutelage I was able to influence my leadership team to promote me and trust me with the ownership of a high-profile eBay product. I attribute these successes to the things I learned from Caryn.

Julie Badillo
VP Program Management at Onyx Pharmaceuticals

As the VP of Program and Alliance Management at Facet Biotech, I had the pleasure of working with Caryn as my Executive Coach, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is committed to continual improvement.  While working with Caryn, I underwent a 360 review through the Center for Creative Leadership.  This review would not have been as useful as it was without having Caryn involved.  In addition to helping me to interpret the computer generated feedback, Caryn also performed extensive interviews with my superiors, peers and subordinates, and it was this personalized feedback that really provided me with the most insight.  Caryn worked with me to interpret all of the information and helped me to create a personalized development plan.  Caryn's support throughout the process made a huge difference in supporting my professional growth.

Gwen Carscadden

Vice President of Human Resources at CardioDx

I highly recommend Caryn as both a coach and an OD consultant.  I have brought her into several companies to provide coaching as well as trainings/facilitations-all with superior results.  She has excellent business sense and a wealth of experience.

Keith Wilson

Director, Discovery at AbbVie

I have worked with Caryn on multiple projects that have ranged from personal coaching to larger organizational consulting and leadership training.  Caryn has a broad experience base within many different organizations and has worked with a wide variety of individuals.  Caryn applies this experience in a very effective and personalized manner.  I have found Caryn to be a wonderful sounding board and out of the box thinker on all fronts.  I highly recommend Caryn whether you need a personal career coach or an organizational/leadership consultant.

Bob DuBridge CEO at Full Spectrum Genetics

I have been working with Caryn for the past year or so to improve my interactions with other senior members of our company.  Initially Caryn came in and interviewed a collection of my colleagues, so that she could get an accurate assessment of my relative strengths and weaknesses.  Using this information she took me through a series of exercises to demonstrate how my actions were causing problems for other managers within our company.  Caryn also had me read a couple of very useful books that helped me understand the difference between what was expected from me in my current job and how that really differed from the junior scientist position that I was trained for in graduate school.  After working with Caryn, the feedback from my peers indicated that I had made significant progress on the goals I had set out to achieve and this has definitely improved my position within the organization.  For me Caryn’s program was very insightful and revealing.   It helped me improve my interaction with my peers and significantly improved my job satisfaction.  I’d highly recommend Caryn and her program to anyone that would like to expand their training and opportunities beyond their first job to a level that is more appropriate for their current job.
