Real Estate Agent

“Phil Glosserman helped take me from one of the lowest-ranking performers in my company to number one in just 14 months. He got me focused on the fundamental strategies and actions I needed to grow my business and held me accountable for sticking to my plan. When I first started working with Phil, he asked me what my most ambitious sales goal was for the next year. Through our work together, my sales exploded. I attained 75% of my highest expectations for the ENTIRE YEAR’S sales in just three months. When the year was up, I had exceeded my original goal by over 100%! Three years later, I’m still the number one agent in my company and am ranked in the top quarter of a percent of agents in the country. I continue to work with Phil because he helps me hone my sales skills, manage my team, and stay on-track and accountable for the actions I need stay on top of my game.”
—Erik Flexner, The Flexner Group, Marina del Rey, CA

VP of Sales and Marketing

“I cannot thank Phil enough for the time he has spent coaching me over the last year and a half.  He has helped me maximize each sales opportunity and I have had tremendous success as a result.  I’m a firm believer that there is always room for personal growth and Phil’s expertise has helped me refine my skill sets enabling me to simply close more deals.  I have already exceeded our record 2010 year and will likely finish 2011 at 40% above 2010.  Thank you Phil!’And because of our work together, I was able to generate this growth in a down market.”

Mortgage Broker

“I’ve worked with a number of great coaches over the past five years. What separates Phil Glosserman from the rest of the pack is the way he digs in to find out what’s really going on in my business and with my team and then tailors the coaching to address our specific challenges and goals. Phil has done wonders with aligning our team, improving our systems and workflow, and helping us grow the business. As a result of our work together, the entire team is “on-fire.” In the first year of coaching, we grew our mortgage business revenue over 20%- no small feat, considering it was one of the worst real estate and refinancing markets in recent history.”
—Philip Tirone, President, The Mortgage Equity Group and author of 7 Steps to 720: Seven Steps to the Ideal Credit Score

Financial Advisers

“Phil’s coaching has empowered me to focus on my business in a way I only dreamed was possible. He has helped me develop a disciplined system to grow my business by maximizing and expanding my network of business resources and referrals. Our coaching was instrumental in helping me land a 42 million dollar account—the largest of my career. The results of coaching with Phil have been measurable and profound.”
—Cary Biren, Financial Advisor

“Phil has a deep natural talent for coaching. I hired him to help me focus on an ambitious business venture that I’d had simmering on the back burner for years. He helped me hone in on the very core issues in the first session. He has an uncanny ability to identify and drill down on key issues and elicit creative solutions. Our coaching became the basis of major shifts in my thinking and actions that are helping me expand my business to a new level and attract more clients and larger deals. Through coaching, I attained a clarity of objectives and purpose that runs much deeper than quarterly revenue goals. The clarity I’ve gained has been both energizing and liberating.”
—Reg Wilson, CEO, EPIC Financial

Investment Banker

“Coaching with Phil Glosserman has exceeded my highest expectations. When we started coaching, I was an executive investment banker in one of the country’s leading financial institutions. Though I was very successful and highly compensated, I was chronically stressed, anxious, and on the verge of burnout. Worst of all I couldn’t see a way out—I believed work would always be a struggle for me, regardless of the job or company I worked for. Phil helped me get beyond that limiting belief and identify what I really wanted next in my career. He helped me get ‘out of my head’ and into action. Over the next several months I interviewed with several companies, looking not just for a good position, but for one that was right for me. Through working with Phil, I have made meaningful, positive changes in my career and my life. I moved out of a restrictive work environment into a new role that fully utilizes my skills and is aligned with my strengths and ambitions. Without Phil’s coaching, I might still be ‘spinning my wheels’ in frustration. I recognize and am looking forward to the breadth of opportunities ahead.”
—Matt L., Investment Banker

Insurance Agent

“I worked with Phil for about a year and a half and he truly helped me to maintain focus on revenue generating activities and helped me improve my networking skills. My gross revenues went up about 50%, so I feel very satisfied.”
—Glen Park, Life Insurance Agent

Fear of Public Speaking

“Phil’s dedication and patience through my fear of public speaking was not only helpful but enlightening.  His process for helping me overcome my fear was unlike anything I have ever tried and worked almost instantly.  A week later I gave my speech to a business group and I received tons of praise!  I felt confident and prepared to take anything on, Phil was so diligent that he even called me before the speech to give me an extra boost and after to congratulate my breakthrough.  I feel so lucky to be working with Phil, he has certainly enhanced the opportunities to present my company forever.”
—Sofia Yepes, Owner of The TaskRunners

Accounting

“I hired Phil to help me improve the performance of the firm which involved many different areas including marketing and managing people.  Since I started working with Phil we have tripled our revenue and doubled our staff and Phil has been an integral part of this.  As a CPA, I have had many challenges managing people and understanding how to get the most from people, and Phil has been very helpful in these areas. I use his services about 8 times a year and as long as we continue to have challenges and opportunities I will continue to use him.  I highly recommend him and don’t know where I would be without his help over the years.”
—Dave P, Accountant

Physician

I’ve been working with Phil Glosserman for close to three years and I find our coaching sessions invaluable. As a physician, professor, program director, author, consultant, father, and husband, I am constantly being pulled in multiple directions. I hired Phil as an executive leadership coach to help me become more effective at managing my many roles. Through our coaching, I have made significant progress in setting priorities, managing my time, and focusing on what’s most important in my work and my life. Phil has been instrumental in helping me become a more effective leader, manager, and decision-maker. As an example, he helped me apply for and win a $125,000 grant to publicize and advocate for my area of specialization, Palliative Medicine. Phil is a great sounding board for many of my difficult issues and decisions. I look forward to our coaching sessions as a strategic time to think, plan and problem-solve. I can say without reservation that coaching with Phil is one of the best investments I’ve made in my business and myself.
