WHAT MY COACHING CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
"Howard’s coaching is focused, nonjudgmental and effective.Our coaching relationship has helped me pull back the curtain on my abilities and strengths revealing insights and tapping into motivation that has moved me forward to a better and more self-fulfilling life. Work with Howard. You will be a better you and enjoy and appreciate who you really are."

"Howard, your practice of guidance without advice is incredibly helpful in my journey of self-discovery. You are a fantastic listener, with a unique ability to help me focus on what is important to me. You do this in a skilled fashion, without confusing me with your version of my thoughts, but with powerful questions that help me clarify my own thinking.
You are a trusted and effective sounding board reflecting my values and integrity while giving me a safe environment to share my fears, hopes and joys. I am tremendously grateful for your wisdom and insight."

"Our work together has been more than enlightening - it has been crucial to me personally and to the development of my new firm. Our conversations regularly renew my enthusiasm, strengthen my belief that my vision is worthwhile and increase my courage to put it all out there. The help Howard has given me by asking the right questions, challenging me to clarify my comments and digging deep to find my motivation and understand the obstacles I create has been invaluable. I thank you again. You are terrific."
Karen Stancik, CPA and Owner
"I was quite reluctant to start coaching as I have a very busy life between my new career as an entrepreneur and managing the lives of 4 active children. Howard has not let me down for one minute. He embodies emotional intelligence and a caring approach to coaching. I truly look forward to our bi-monthly calls as I feel that Howard is cheering for me at every step along this path and also holding me accountable in a way that really motivates me to make the changes that I have always wanted to make. I have nothing but positive things to say and strongly recommend that you consider working with him as a coach.”
"Thank you Howard for your amazingly safe and energizing coaching sessions.. Each time we hang up I am charged with a renewed focus and sense of accomplishment. I am grateful for the motivation I feel thru the weeks as I work toward goals you’ve helped me re-set into manageable doses!"
Lisa Marie Holcomb, M.Ed.Character Development Educator and Owner of The Reflective Arts and Wellness Center
"I contacted Howard in hopes that I would find a way out of my life "rut" and that is exactly what I got. Howard does an amazing job at letting you lead yourself to a better life/mindset. His guidance, excitement and ability to narrow down what the issue really is that you might being dealing with is both professional and inspiring. Learning different ways of approaching and evaluating tasks, myself, and my thought processes has been the best tool that Howard has given me. I highly recommend his services; you will not be disappointed."
"I have been working with Howard as my coach for almost 7 months. As context, I’ve done coaching myself since 2006 and have had the honor of working with other coaching professionals. I’ve also done a significant amount of inner work, including therapy, workshops with Alan Weiss, PhD, Jack Canfield, and Lisa Ernst.
Howard Stanten stands out.
He is the most profoundly active listener I’ve ever encountered. When he listens, it is almost as if he is able to picture my thoughts in 3D. He hears not only my ideas, and helps me think more clearly; he hears my heart.
Best of all, I’ve been able to break through a number of personal and professional blocks that prevented me from living fully.
Those who know me are aware of many challenges I face. I can’t tell you how many times friends have remarked that they don’t understand how I can be so productive. But, beyond being productive, Howard has helped me fuel my vision with the energy that comes from being very focused on my own dream of how I can impact my world as an entrepreneur.
I am grateful that Howard has chosen to share his unique gift with the world by developing a coaching practice and that I am fortunate enough to be able to work with him.
If you feel stuck, or just want to accelerate forward, I advise you to connect with Howard Stanten."
Chief Imagineer: connecting the dots between talent, tech, & innovation.
I had the privilege of working with Howard Stanten and Michael Kline to dig into the discontentment of staff on a particular unit. They used their expertise in Circle Process to encourage open and respectful communications, setting ground rules up front. Nursing staff were comfortable and felt heard. The dialogue helped them understand their peers better. This was very helpful for me to consider instead of simply thinking about what I would say next. We learned as a group that we shared common goals and frustrations and clarified misconceptions. Having Howard and Michael from outside the facility allowed the staff to describe the processes and situations differently. In turn Michael and Howard turned to staff for possible solutions. I appreciated how their humor, energy and sincerity enhanced the time spent together."
