Don't just take our word for it. Hear what some of our clients have to say.


"Barbara got my head ‘screwed on right again’ so that I am focused on the activities that matter. When I started with Barbara I was in a real funk. I was struggling with vision, with motivation, with direction. I couldn’t find a way to pull it all together. Sales were down close to 55%. After just two short months, the fog lifted. All of a sudden, I’m able to focus on the activities that are important. My business has turned around as well and our best year ever is in sight. Barbara provides great, practical advice both from a business and personal coaching perspective.”

- Michael Podobnik, President, Teletrix

"Barbara has a rare gift for helping people articulate the best side of themselves to the world. Supported by her contagious confidence, warmth, groundedness, optimism, and no-nonsense attitude, I’ve shed limiting patterns and beliefs, and harnessed the power within me to define and embody the exact kind of life I want to be living, both personally and professionally."

- Abby Bolton, Communications Specialist and Consultant, TiER1 Performance Solutions

"Through a combination of coaching conversations, NEC®, and her gentle pushing at the right times, I surfaced again, not just to my ‘old normal’ self but to a new and stronger me."

- Malene V, Maersk, Kopenhagen, Denmark

"I have been an executive coach for over 10 years and I consider Barbara Schwarck a 'coach's coach.' Barbara's unique use of coaching is a tremendously powerful way to create breakthroughs quickly, both personally and professionally."

- Dick Singer, Chair, Vistage International

"She pushed me to reach farther than I thought possible."

- Laura Fennimore, BN, MSN, Director of Organizational Development, Nursing Education & Research, UPMC Presbyterian
