1000 IT professionals

The issue, problem, or opportunity that caused you to seek coaching :


Since 2013 I received 2 major promotions into management directing 3 different teams with 3 different purposes. This is the first time I was in management and I came to Mario to learn how to become an outstanding leader where I could coach my employees to accomplish the goals of the firm and complete projects on time with high quality. To build a highly technical team where my team members feel safe and appreciated; and to work a plan for each of them to accomplish both their personal and career goals.

The specific, measurable results and benefits you received as a result of the coaching :


Raymond James hired an independent contractor to administer the “Associate Insight Survey” scoring all managers on their effectiveness. The managers in IT averaged a score of 71-72 points, which equates to favorable manager; whereas I scored 89.5 which equates to highly favorable manager. I increased the technical capability of 8 out of 9 (certifications awarded) of the full time employees by identifying the training skills needed and providing that training. I received highly positive feedback from the 360 Feedback Survey. 360 Degree Feedback is a system or process in which employees receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them.

As a business owner is difficult to have someone to consult on issues. Mario helped me with a number of issues, including getting past some limiting beliefs and visualizing the future of the company.

The specific, measurable results and benefits you received as a result of the coaching :


Mario’s coaching and accountability helped me to overcome limiting beliefs which were holding my business growth. As a new startup in the home inspection industry, Mario’s coaching helped me to visualize a compelling future far beyond what I could see but wanted. Within 6-months our company was able to increase our business by 25% and hire two additional inspectors. I am now leading and not operating my business and have a strategy to take the company nationwide.

Additional comments :


Mario Garcia guided me through questions and challenged my thinking process to assist me on breaking through any limiting beliefs that could have been holding me back.

The issue, problem, or opportunity that caused you to seek coaching :


Needing to grow my business after hitting a glass ceiling for the past 3 years. Diversification and outbound marketing is key, as well as changing my overall corporate culture and training management. Mario has helped me to change my entire approach to business so I\'m transitioning from being a business operator to a business owner.

The specific, measurable results and benefits you received as a result of the coaching :


Every Q1 due to seasonal variations in my business, sales drop off and I lose money. Thanks to Mario\'s coaching and strategies, I\'ve focused heavily on increasing sales to eliminate or at least minimize losses. Using new business management and sales tactics, we\'ve already secured sales equaling all of Q1 this past year. We\'re now projecting a 75 - 100% increase in Q1 sales, which should result in us breaking even for the first time in my 25 year history. This will have a profound impact on overall profitability for the year.

Additional comments :


Mario tends to let me arrive at my own solutions, with measured questions and gentle pressure. No hype, no fairy dust, just the continuous development of solid business practices.
