What Focus Forward Clients Are Saying:
Kirsten is a life changer. I met with Kirsten on the recommendation of a friend last spring and I had no idea at the time how important she would become to my business and my future. Kirsten has the God given ability to connect with people and to help them remove the clutter that blocks them from their potential. Kirsten coached me through one of the most important decisions in my life by opening my mind to new ways of thinking about my company and my job. Kirsten is honest and thoughtful but she is not afraid to challenge you and hold you accountable. I would recommend Kirsten to anyone that is serious about getting empowered and taking control of their future. May 10, 2013

Andy hired Kirsten E. in 2012.
Good Morning Kirsten!
Thank you so very much for coming out and meeting our staff! The points you shared made an impact. There was quite a bit of “discussion” the next day. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to talk with you a bit more afterwards. Unfortunately I had a 6:30 meeting that evening.
The officers and myself decided to have a follow up meeting with the staff based on the points in your presentation and we have already noticed a difference in the attitudes at work.
Thank you again!!!!!

“Kirsten Ross is an answer to prayer. As the Medical Director of a non profit Pediatric Medical and Rehabilitation Program that reaches out to Children with Disabilities and their families, there is a continual need to be not only a great physician, but a great organizational leader. The challenge of casting vision and “leading up” to hospital administrators, philanthropists, and societal leaders can be daunting.
Kirsten’s coaching is transformational. Through tangible action steps implemented after each coaching session, I am not only becoming a more effective leader, but more importantly, a more effective agent for societal change.
Our hospital believes that our Program can become a National Model for how Children with Disabilities and their families can be supported and cared for on their life journeys. Kirsten’s skill in unveiling the ‘best me’, allowing me to ‘lead from the platform’, has me believing that I may just be able to take us there.”
Dr. Susan Youngs
“Before working with Kirsten, my voice was not heard. As a business owner I had a difficult time with staff compliance and expectations. Through her practice building workshops & facilitated conversations we were able to come together as a team and I was able to become the team leader & boss I knew I always could be.
From a personal life coaching point, Kirsten has helped me see what matters and forget about the past and move toward a brighter future.”

“If you have more than one person working in your office you need Kirsten! The improvement of communication and ease in the office are immediate. Ms. Ross brings results to any goals facing a business present and future. My personal challenge in communication was addressed and tailored to benefit myself with others in my working environment. It is a must for any physician desiring best patient care with office support and efficiency. I will never be without this service.”

“Kirsten’s approach to “Being on the platform”, allowed me to always think of being in the center of the audience and taking ownership of my words.

Owner Healing Branch, Therapeutic Massage
“When I started with Kirsten I wasn’t sure how she’d be able to help me and my business. The first phone call I told her about several issues affecting my office and the moral in it. Kirsten stated she wasn’t worried at all and we slowly worked through the negative issues at my clinic. She also helped me address the leadership issues. It was like pealing an onion back, one layer at a time. Over 6 months she helped me gain more confidence and empowered me to lead my employees and clinic better than ever before. As we changed to a more positive atmosphere the things she said would happen did. I now have a more positive clinic and have started to enjoy working in my clinic again with a new energy and empowered feeling. I would recommend Kirsten and her Drama Free Work Coaching to any employer.”
Dr. Eric Lambert
“I enjoyed Kirsten’s webinar Your Culture is Your Team Machine. Having spent over 14 year in HR, I am very attentive in recognizing types of cultures within a corporation. The Human Resources Assistant who attended the webinar with me, was not as familiar with the topic and benefited from the webinar a great deal. Kirsten’s ‘Six Simple Steps to Great Delegation’ is also spot on!”
Manager of Human Resources
“Kirsten has so many great qualities it is hard to pick a place to start. As a coach, what makes her special is her wisdom. She brings a larger perspective to her client’s situations that allow the client to detach from the emotions of what they are going through and to see things as they truly are. This is a rare gift and one she has worked hard to obtain. She is a special person and a great coach.”
