I am a 36-year-old male who is working to improve my life in all aspects. With this in mind, I had the opportunity to work with Ettore as a coach, and the experience was excellent. Ettore made me feel comfortable at all times, even when stepping outside of my comfort zone. He has a way of bringing the most positive experience out of what I was going through and making me see how vulnerability can really help me become my true self. I was able to connect with Ettore during every session on many different levels and subjects and felt that our time was being used most productively.
I highly recommend Ettore as a coach if you are trying to improve your life in any way, as I believe he has all the tools to help any willing person to succeed.
Absolutely loved my coaching sessions with Jordan. He has the unique ability to listen carefully, ask relevant questions, and allow whatever comes up to guide the session. Since working with Jordan, I have been able to slow down and tune into what my body is telling me. I have learned to accept whatever and however I am feeling as perfectly okay. Very excited and grateful to keep working down this growth path with him!
Working with Ettore has allowed me to deepen into spots of resistance and rigidity around internalized blocks I have inadvertently held onto for years. Ettore's demeanor feels heartfelt, authentic, and inviting — which are instrumental traits for me in establishing trust when exploring new edges of vulnerability. In essence, his feedback is less advice-oriented and more encouraging of self-discovery through thoughtful questions and prompts in the moment.
I have noticed how I am more at ease dropping into social and professional conversations where fear, shame, and guilt previously took rein. My time with Ettore is definitely helping me grow as a human and the leader I desire to embody.
After group work I felt it only uncovered the tip of the iceberg. Once I had one on one sessions with Jordan I felt like I was able to dig deeper which brought more clarity to how I felt emotions and how I would react to them.
Since the one on one sessions I can say with confidence that I am much more able to recognize my emotions that arise and what activates them and by doing so I feel I react to situations from a grounded perspective.
When I first started working with Jordan I was unsure what if anything there was to learn about myself that I didn't already know. Jordan let our sessions move at their own pace and let them go wherever I wanted to take them. He was adept at asking the right questions at the right time to keep me focused on feelings in my body and taking them deeper to see where they led to. He helped me discover unprocessed emotional traumas from my middle school years that still reside buried within me and affect how I interact socially today. It was a connection I had never thought about before and would likely not have come to on my own, but it has given me an awareness of it that I can now begin to process those things so that I can move on from them.
Ettore has been a superb coach and navigator for me along this patch of highway on my winding journey towards authenticity and wholeness. He holds me accountable and encourages me to stretch against my comfort zone in concrete ways each week, and yet he is exceptionally gentle and patient in our work together. This work often involves bushwhacking through some difficult, occasionally scary regions of the heart and psyche, and you couldn’t ask for a more skillful, compassionate guide. If you want to go deep, he’s there every step of the way. If you just want help working through some logistics in your life, in your relationships or career, for example,
Ettore always has pragmatic, empathic wisdom to offer. I feel so lucky to have found him!
