Emerging Challenges and Opportunities Survey
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences during these times of uncertainty and change. I’d like to hear about the impact of the last few months, and the anticipated future, on your life, work, health, family, relationships, environment, etc.
Your sharing will help me to get a better understanding of how I can best help as a coach and to develop offerings based on what is really going on for people right now.
All individual responses will be strictly confidential and not associated with your email address should you chose to provide it.
The survey will take less than 10 minutes.
