Todd Mengert, Global Quality Manager at Eminess Technologies, Inc.

“I started coaching with Institute Success™ after a career setback required me to refocus my career. My coach held me accountable for setting attainable, measurable goals and set me on path to success. From my interactions with my coach, I have developed a stronger toolbox, gained more self-awareness, and acquired a positive outlook to succeed in both my career and personal life. I would recommend Institute Success™ to anyone looking to grow their business or personal excellence. I have only experienced a small part of what I am capable of and I thank my Institute Success™ coach for the momentum.”

Scott Wachtel, Senior Loan Officer at Fairway

“After making the decision to transition out of a 24-year career in retail management, I enlisted the help of Institute Success™ for career coaching. To say that my coach was helpful in orchestrating my transition to a successful conclusion would be a monumental understatement.  My coach was able to take a process—that to me, was wrought with the unknown, the undesirable, and downright scary—and distill it to an easy-to-digest, methodical, and engaging process that I was eager to participate in. My coach understood my situation in every sense of the word and he was a true professional. I cannot recommend Institute Success™ highly enough and would strongly urge anyone who is considering a change in career to seek out their counsel ASAP.”

Ira Bass, CEO, IB Media LLC and Connect To Success

“In the course of a lifetime, you may meet only a few people who have a profound impact on you.  For me, Harvey Smith is one of those individuals. I can’t imagine what my life and career would look like without him. When I met Harvey, I was considering my next career move and I really had no idea how to go about finding a career in which I could leverage my strengths, be my own boss, and earn an income that satisfied my financial needs. Once Harvey partnered with me, I gained clarity about my vision for career success and we designed a strategy for implementing a plan and creating the business and career of my dreams. My company, IB Media helps businesses and individuals leverage LinkedIn to propel their businesses and careers forward. Without Harvey’s brilliant coaching, I probably would not have achieved my success as quickly as I did. I call Harvey him my conscience that sits on my shoulder.  He has given me the tools and ongoing encouragement to continue to succeed regardless of the challenges encountered along the way. Through hard work and being challenged along the way, clarity of vision is the end result. I’ve told numerous friends and associates about Harvey and what he has meant to me. I can honestly say that my success is a testament to Harvey’s skillful coaching and his unwavering desire for every client to succeed.”

Mike Dinerman, Director, Business Development

“To say Institute Success™ helped me succeed through a challenging career transition would be a massive understatement. I met with my coach at a critical point in my career and through his guidance and advice, I gained the clarity I needed to make the best decision for me, and my family. With both confidence and conviction, I recommend Institute Success™ for anyone who needs a little help along the way with their career direction and strategy.”

Cathy Crosby, VP, Bank of America                                                                                                                               

“The greatest benefit I received from working with my Institute Success™ coach for two years was the ability to clearly see possibilities and opportunities that weren’t obvious to me. Anyone wanting to make a career change—but not knowing exactly how to start—would definitely gain value from speaking with an Institute Success™ Coach. Your confidence will soar when you partner with a coach who believes in your ability to achieve success and reminds you to not settle for anything less than your passionate best!”

Khaled Alhamzawi, Branch Manager, Coram Healthcare

“I had the opportunity to work with Institute Success™ to achieve one of my most important career goals--what was it?  My coach’s unique style inspired me to achieve more results than I could have ever imagined.  He was a great listener and provided me with practical solutions that worked for me. I totally endorse Institute Success™ for career coaching.”

Jim McManus, Career Client

“Having recently sold my small businesses, I arrived in Charlotte with a vision of what I wanted to accomplish as a next step in my career. My Institute Success™ coach was instrumental in helping me to first gain clarity about what success looked like for me. Then, we co-created a plan to achieve my vision. My coach led me through a process that heightened my self awareness, taught me effective networking strategies, and—most importantly—held me accountable for taking action. My coach was a voice of reason and a friend throughout my career transition. I highly recommend Institute Success™ for career and business coaching because the insights and experiences I received were invaluable and I am forever grateful.”

Michael Bechtel, Mortgage Loan Officer, Bank of America

“My inability to gain employment was not due to inexperience or education but rather my inability to stand out from the crowd. Only two short months after I was referred to Institute Success™, I secured a position with Bank of America. I am so grateful to my coach for unlocking my professional potential. I believe firmly that without the support of my coach, I would not have been able to transform my career.”

Lynn Wheeler, Former Mayor Pro Tem

“After my fourteen-year stint on the Charlotte City Council, I was in a quandary about what I would do in the next chapter of my life. I wanted something that was challenging, fun and fulfilling, and would use my skill set I had developed. My Institute Success™ coach ushered me through a series of exercises that led me to open Wheeler Communication Group, LLC, which is a dream come true for me. My coach’s help was invaluable!”
