Many others have sung praise about David’s ability to ask probing questions to reorient their thinking to become their best selves, so I won’t try to convince you of that. Instead, I want to tell you how deeply David cares for others which is why I consider him the best coach (and mentor) I’ve ever had. David has a personal stake in the success of others. He has true empathy which shines through every conversation you have with him.

David helped to reframe a lot of things for me. I had a lot of assumptions, misconceptions, fears, and insecurities about my career. He helped me to get unstuck, develop a mission for my job search, and take a practical approach to building relationships through meaningful conversations.

“Going through a coaching session with David is not your run-of-the-mill conversation. David is somehow able to first distill whatever you end up rambling about into a concise story and then decipher what the root of the ‘matter’ is. He’s able to do this because he is actively listening to you. David enables you to find answers on your own terms. He steers you in the right direction, to keep you focused and grounded on whatever you state your values and desires are. The most important skill that David has is that he knows when to make you uncomfortable. He has this uncanny ability to know the right questions to ask and when to ask them. He absolutely challenges you so that you can learn and grow.”

“Whenever I have conversations with David, I always seem to come out of them with a better understanding about myself. Rather than providing suggestions around what he thinks I should do, he will ask me questions that really push me to dig deep and reflect on why I’m feeling the way that I do. He is a meticulous listener and is always able to pick up on the smallest of cues and was even able to detect how passionate I was about something before I even admitted it to myself. He provided me with concrete activities to work through that gave me a better understanding of my values and life goals and how they compared to the decisions I was making. Overall, David has helped me grow as a person and understand the importance of taking the time to reflect on what I really want, and most importantly why.”

“When I met David I was deep in the throes of trying to kick-start my business, which mostly meant doing work that made me anxious and uncertain, like networking and getting my website up. David coached me through my doubts and fears, creating a safe space to discover personal qualities for leading a new business that I had not recognized in myself. As a result, I went from a few scribbled ideas to a full website and my first clients over the time we worked together. Thank you, David, for your warm support, cool head, deep insight, and keen intelligence. You’ve got some powerful coaching mojo!”

“We maintained an ongoing coaching relationship for a year and a half, during which time he helped me navigate team changes and ultimately helped me find a path to doing work I’m more passionate about. I appreciated how he gave me simple, concrete things to work on, and then held me accountable to them. What I think makes David unique is his ability to gain an understanding of the people he works with at a much deeper level by asking pointed, yet open ended questions; and then offering insights, which are often things you might not normally think of, but after hearing from David, seem like common sense.”

“David’s coaching is transformational. He met me at a tough crossroads in my professional career: some of my past managers had been terrible, my work felt uninspiring, and I felt unable to dig myself out of the funk. He helped focus me on the aspects of my job that played to my strengths–things I naturally had a passion for–and unblocked me where he could. After a few months working with him, I felt clear-minded about what I wanted to accomplish in the short term and empowered to plan proactively about future endeavors.”

“David Klemenz is a highly intuitive, warm-hearted and engaged coach. I now feel more engaged in my relationships and at work, which has opened many doors for me and has brought incredible improvements and more overall satisfaction into my life. His ability and wisdom to summarise and connect the dots are impeccable and spot on. David guides and supports with calmness and strength, which has allowed me to feel safe and fully at ease in our sessions. I highly recommend working with David!”

“David has approached our working relationship in unique ways that have allowed me to grow and mature in my role and as a person. It has been instrumental in setting me up for success in my career. He’s not afraid to challenge and push on things you say or do in a thoughtful way that allows a great process of self discovery all the while guiding you through that journey.”

“David is empathetic, a genuine and heartfelt listener, and a coach that empowers you to be able to understand yourself. It’s not the subject matter or anything else, but David’s genuine ability to help you unlock yourself that makes him a rare and effective coach. He seeks to understand with patience and without judgment. He acts as a gentle mirror, helping you find the answer that feels both authentic and actionable for you and one that moves you in the direction you are seeking to go.”
