I always say…there was this coach!

Early on I hired Terry as my coach to help me with priority setting and time allocation.

Terry helped me think through my personal values and priorities and those early conversations helped me as a new business owner to guide my business to six-figure success.

I started coaching with Terry to assist me in coping with my current work environment. Over the 16 plus years I coached with Terry it evolved into so much more. Terry’s expert knowledge in the coaching field and her own professional experience took me from coping to excelling. Her feedback was a path to model my management techniques, develop a high performing team and to, in turn, have the skills to coach my own staff; as well as make cultural changes in the organization.

One of the many tools she provided both myself and my team were 360 evaluations. This experience was formidable for everyone, providing a path for each individual to improve leadership and time management which lead to improved teamwork and productivity. Even though there was resistance initially, it turned into an opportunity for greater conversation and reflection on how we interacted and performed.

Along with the accompanying coaching from Terry, this improved our team effectiveness as well as individual leadership skills. The changes to the dynamics improved not only how we interacted, it made us more efficient and bottom line driven.

She is a good listener with well thought out strategies to guide you to improve in whatever area you desire. I encouraged my team to coach with Terry once I experienced for myself what she can do to improve performance, attitude and results.

Terry knows what she’s doing and her results speak for themselves.

I am honored to recommend Terry Taylor. I endorse Terry without reservation to any organization that has made the wise decision to invest in the personal growth and team stability of its workforce. I am an employment law attorney with 20 yrs experience and I practice law with my father (Steve Henderson) and husband (Simon Stocker), at the Olympia, WA, law firm, Henderson Law Group, PLLC. Simon and I joined my father’s firm 7 yrs ago. I left a job I loved working as an attorney at Microsoft for over 5 yrs; before that I served as senior law clerk for the Chief Justice of the WA State Supreme Court, after which I worked for 5 yrs as a litigation attorney in the employment law practice group at a top Seattle firm, Carney Badley Spellman (where we represented several WA-based employers including Alaska Airlines and Tully’s Coffee).

My work with Fortune 500 companies and firms exposed me to many executive coaches who offer services like Terry’s…..none have impressed me as much as Terry. Our firm hired Terry in early 2019 to help resolve a multi-faceted situation imploding at our firm and getting worse by the minute. Practicing law with my husband and father (who has been a lifelong mentor to me) is a blessing…..but it also comes with its own unique set of challenges (e.g., interpersonal relationships, issues of trust, differing communication styles, hurt feelings, passionate litigators who didn’t see eye to eye on how to manage our staff or how to communicate with each other as we defended our respective team within our growing firm). Coupled with my employment law practice growing through the roof and a year where I settled some of the biggest and most media publicized cases of my career.

Terry had her work cut-out for her when we hired her. My father, Simon and I disagreed over management approaches; communication styles; values; and our Paralegals were battling each other’s egos in our office. Simon and I had to go home each night and co-parent our two little girls with a smile on our faces…..it was a lot. Terry took our broken firm by the hand and lead us to the light. Part therapist, part philosopher, part DISC Assessment expert, part brilliant business strategist, part peacemaker, part tough love…..Terry wore many hats in her consulting contract with our firm. And they all added-up to magic.

Like any great mediation heavily divided seemingly beyond repair, we came out the other end stronger, closer, more self-aware, more valued, more empowered, more accountable for our own actions and thus more trusting of each other. Throughout our coaching contract with Terry, she was prompt, knowledgeable, approachable, results-driven, fair with her pricing; invoicing, and respectful of my, my partner’s and our staff’s time.

Powerful coaching experience!

As a burned out, lost and discouraged business owner, I found myself on a mission to find a “guru with all the answers.” What I experienced in the 24-months working with Versoria’s Terry Taylor, however, was how to initiate profound change from within myself. Along with the more routine strategies and mind-mapping, Terry’s greatest gift lies in her uncanny ability to stoke the fires of motivation and activate her client’s entrepreneurial ingenuity. The creativity that roared through me 23 years ago when I opened my business was rekindled! Not only did Terry remove the block so I could I simply think forward again; she guided me to see my business with entirely fresh new eyes and instinct. The most powerful aspect of the coaching became evident when I recently stopped and looked around me. Everything solid about my business was still intact (or refreshed); yet I was surrounded by changes I had made without thinking.

I highly that anyone interested in opening or resuscitating a business to give themselves the time it takes working with Terry Taylor and Versoria. And even as an established business owner, I am glad I gave my work with Versoria 2-years; interestingly, the recommended standard for any new startup to succeed.

Terry Taylor helped me seek clarity in myself

Terry Taylor helped me seek clarity in myself, my trajectory as a business marketing professional and business owner, and helped be the mirror that I can see myself in a good light. I get to see the me I want to be, work towards it, and keep going into the best life. In business and in life she has been a great ally to have in my corner.
