"Some people are natural leaders. Others are natural coaches. When working with Carla Howard, you get both. I had the great pleasure of working with Carla while at Avnet, Inc. She truly has a natural ability and drive to help others succeed. She takes time to listen to your goals, and if you don’t have them clearly defined, she’ll help you define them. No matter what she has going on or how busy she is, she will reach out, whether it’s face-to-face, by phone, email or text. She listened intently to my journey and thoughtfully looked at pros/cons/challenges, then helped me focus on strategies and solutions. In addition to being an outstanding and influential coach and leader, Carla is an outstanding friend and colleague. Whether you need some guidance on dealing with difficult people in the workplace, how to boost your value in your current job, or how to get out and find your next job, I highly recommend Carla to help guide you on your way.
