I first met Jerry at Canyon Ranch for his “Gratitude” presentation, and from that first hour in his presence, I knew he was someone who had the potential to be an impactful mentor and help me finally change my outlook on life. What I didn’t know at that time was how profound the experience would be, and how my husband would also decide to work with him, and in the end, how meaningful Jerry’s insights would be in our future together as a married couple.
What Jerry helped my husband with most, is realizing that he (we all) has the power to change his life by the choices he makes each and every day…. from the very small and mundane to the large and complicated.
I also found that Jerry’s way of coaching made what seemed like Mt. Everest-type obstacles in the past, start to seem like something that was clear, manageable and something I felt comfortable navigating. Taking true accountability was something Jerry taught me. He helped us start learning how to respond to each situation life hands us with compassion and intention. After 4-5 sessions with Jerry (which is generally a short time if comparing to a therapist), our lives have already drastically changed by changing our choices. In our house we now say “What Would Jerry Do?!”
Important Note: This IS a process… I’d like to say he is a “magician” but the tools he gives you must be used and practiced in order to get the desired results.
Jerry’s pearls of wisdom are like an angel on your shoulder in the toughest of times.
He redefines the word coach because there’s not just instruction, there is inspiration. He has given us the tools/resources and perspective to choose to create the best life we can for ourselves. We finished our sessions with Jerry feeling energized, informed, and ready to conquer whatever life has to throw at us. We are stronger as a couple more than ever, and it has connected us on a whole new level.
