What Our Clients Say…

I had the opportunity to have Dr. Allen Slade as a mentor and professional coach while attending the College of William and Mary. Dr. Slade's coaching sessions were invaluable to my personal and professional journey while at William and Mary. Dr. Slade is thoughtful, intelligent, and able to provide insight and guidance for nearly every situation. Our sessions were one on one and I always left feeling peaceful and re-invigorated about whatever situation was going on in my life. Dr. Slade provided coaching to me on my professional career path, conflict resolution, ways to work effectively in a team, and more. I would highly recommend Dr. Slade for any of your coaching needs.
