Vice President & Corporate Controller


It is my pleasure to provide a professional and personal reference for Audrey Beach. I have worked with Audrey since mid-2008 when Greif engaged her to work with me as the pilot candidate for a new development coaching program.

Audrey is intelligent, passionate and has exceptional leadership, motivational and communication skills. She used a disciplined and proven approach, was objective and fair and always very pleasant to work with.

My executive coaching experience with Audrey was both productive and enjoyable. She provided me with a wealth of knowledge on organizational behavior and ways to maximize interactions with different personality types and her years of experience working in industry gave a real world grounding to the program.

Audrey was totally dedicated to helping me set and achieve my goals. She kept me focused and motivated through some busy and stressful times at work.

I highly recommend Audrey as an executive coach for your organization.

Yours Sincerely,
K.A.
Vice President & Corporate Controller

I am now in my third year of working with Audrey Beach as my executive coach. Audrey has become a trusted confidant, advisor and coach to me. I command more than 11,500 members of the Ohio Army National Guard and, on its best day, it is replete with challenge.

Audrey’s initial focus was with me and addressing leader competency gaps that evidenced themselves through a 360 process. In this work Audrey has assisted me in becoming more self-aware regarding my impact on those closest to me who assist me in leading our great organization. She is a wealth of practical knowledge and exhibits great patience in helping me grasp her ideas and the tools she places in my tool kit. Based on the feedback she receives from my subordinates, Audrey has obviously made a significant impact.

Our work together has evolved and Audrey has become a trusted advisor to my senior leader team. This past year she took nine of my top leaders through their own 360 assessments and took 30 of my top leaders through a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) workshop. Audrey has been invaluable to me in planning and executing my senior leader offsites to ensure maximum effect in achieving my stated objectives.

Over these past two plus years, Audrey has learned a great deal about our organization and it is obvious that her own business experience has given her a great foundation for helping us examine ourselves and deal with our most challenging issues.

I highly recommend Audrey as an executive coach. She has proven to be equally adept in dealing with individual leaders one-on-one as well as effectively engaging my leader groups. Our experience with Audrey, me personally, and our senior leader team collectively, has been nothing but positive with demonstrated improvements in leadership impact and organizational achievement. Audrey is passionate about her work and her engagement with our team. She is a valued and trusted member of our team and I am sure she will continue to be for many years to come.

Sincerely,
M.K.

Associate Provost & CIO


Audrey Beach has served as an outstanding executive coach and career counselor at the University of Dayton for several years. I have had the opportunity to observe closely Audrey’s work with my staff and without a doubt, Ms. Beach is the best executive coach I have engaged in my 12 years as a senior administrator at the University of Dayton.

As one would expect, Audrey is highly competent in providing a well-structured, cost-effective coaching plan that identifies and achieves observable and substantial outcomes. However, in each and every coaching situation, Audrey has produced results that have exceeded both my expectations and those of my staff member. I attribute this excellent record of success to Audrey’s highly engaging and effective interpersonal communication skills and abilities. Ms. Beach builds and sustains a wonderfully honest and trusting relationship with her clients so that she can address in very direct ways the critical changes that must occur in order for success to be achieved.

I rarely agree to provide endorsements for those who contract with the University, but in this case, I welcomed the opportunity because Ms. Beach brought such a value-added benefit to the work of my division. Her dedication and commitment to the goals and objectives of the individual and the institution made our work together both enjoyable and incredibly beneficial.

It is so rare to encounter an outside consultant with the personal and professional qualities that Ms. Beach possesses. She is a remarkable person and a greatly talented coach and counselor. Audrey Beach has my strongest endorsement without reservations of any kind.

Please feel free to contact me for additional information.

Sincerely,

Some key themes that we have accomplished include:

  • Enhanced trust, coaching of and delegation to my Director team which is enhancing their effectiveness and overall satisfaction
  • Personal strategy to manage organizational perceptions/balance my very visible logic side which is helping my relationships/effectiveness with my peers
  • Development of strategy to visibly appreciate different styles and methodologies that achieve the desired outcome in the end
  • Strategy to better position myself as a strategic versus tactical executive which has led to a revised job description that is more conducive to upward potential
  • Strategy to have patience with “the process” to bring people along with me versus dragging them along
  • Developed understanding of need for more formal communication regarding key activities within my department which is enhancing the organizational perception of my department and of me as a leader

Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer


Audrey Beach is a seasoned professional executive coach who works with high-level executives. I had the pleasure of working with Audrey Beach for approximately six months while she was coaching one of my direct reports. She has a systematic approach, but is very flexible to meet individual needs. She identified areas that the executive could improve upon, areas where he was doing well, and also stressed the need for a work-life balance. Audrey promotes a supportive, but challenging coaching relationship in which honest feedback is provided and robust and actionable improvement goals are identified. The skills he learned, both in his business and personal life, are skills that will benefit him the rest of life.

I would highly recommend Audrey to others who have a need for professional coaching in their organization, or in their own life.

Sincerely

Working with Audrey as I complete a career transition has been an extremely valuable and enjoyable experience. From the very beginning, she was enthusiastic, caring, candid and professional. She became genuinely interested in me as a person. Audrey holds you accountable and coaches you through all the twists and turns of a career search. I saw more results in the first 6 weeks with her approach then I had in 4 months on my own.

Audrey’s extensive experience is evident in the process she has developed and the advice she is able to provide along the way. Audrey walked me through exercises to clearly solidify my passions, interests, strengths, goals and marketing plan for obtaining a new career. With her guidance, I have been able to articulate my strengths and value proposition with clarity and confidence. Doors opened that I never thought could. Audrey excels in teaching you how to communicate effectively in written and oral form that makes you stand out. I found her to be a great sounding board for how to approach potential employers and networking contacts. She has brought me tremendous clarity in both personal and professional life.

I truly treasure the friendship I have developed with Audrey and the time spent with her. I recommend her expertise to anyone who is making a career transition.

Time spent with Audrey in our coaching sessions has been invaluable. From our very first meeting, Audrey established an atmosphere and dialogue that allows us to be open and honest in our work. Her approach is both candid and caring. Whether in our regular sessions or especially in those “just in time” moments, Audrey is able to quickly and effectively assist me at addressing a need and arriving at a course of action. Audrey’s preparation and approach make me confident that our time together will always be well spent.

From every session we have together, I take something away that is timely, and that I can immediately implement in my work and life. With Audrey’s guidance, I have been able to adjust the ways in which I approach others, working to put myself in their place. Her recommendations for managing communications have simplified and organized my daily work. Audrey has helped me to focus on the ways in which I can be my personal best, while also modeling the way I would want others to be.

Based upon our work together, I honestly believe that Audrey is invested in my success as a leader, as well as in me personally.

Audrey helped me to survive a challenging career inflection point. She asked the right questions and proffered valuable advice, which allowed me to clarify my thoughts and goals and empowered me to make the right choice between two very different (both compelling) offers and paths that presented themselves. I was grateful to benefit from her vast experience advising and coaching both organizations and individuals, and I am happy to highly recommend her services.

Vice President, Human Resources


I have known and worked with Audrey Beach in a variety of capacities for over 10 years. She is a trusted and valued business associate.

Most recently my organization engaged Audrey as an executive coach at the C-level. Her own corporate experience allows her to understand busy schedules, hectic work demands and organizational dynamics. Her flexibility and pragmatic approach make it very easy to work with her, while her ability to relate to all personalities and levels within the organization makes it easy to apply her skills and knowledge broadly.

Audrey is thorough, dedicated and genuinely committed to achieving the client’s definition of success. She has great follow through, and delivers on her commitments. She uses sensitivity and objectivity to work with her clients to face and resolve tough issues.

I highly recommend Audrey as an executive coach. Our experience with her has been so positive that we have asked her to take on additional assignments for us. Audrey is extremely passionate about what she does, and it shows.
