What Our Clients Are Saying
A good business/leadership coach is hard to find. I have had business coaches in the past, mostly in the early years of my 15-year-old small business law firm. I have read scores of leadership books and listened to/attended leadership training/seminars along the way and continue to do so. Merle reminds me every session of what it takes to be a leader, that it doesn’t develop in a day, but takes time every day. His detailed insights and leadership knowledge will help me take my firm to the next level.
- Scott Shibayama, ESQ., Vision Law® Corporation
I started my coaching sessions with Switzer Associates approximately nine years ago. These sessions have helped me to focus on core areas of my business, including determining our firm mission and values, enhancing organization skills, working on growth for employees and fixing and obtaining goals in growing my practice, how faith enters into running my business, and determining that balance between work/family time. They also provide coaching to our managers as well in both Southern and Northern California. Merle Switzer has led our firm retreats to build teamwork in our firm. I would definitely recommend Switzer Associates for anyone in business who is working on developing strategies that provide for growth, better opportunities for employees, and who is looking for overall balance in both their business and personal lives.
