"I am pleased to provide this testimonial for Beverly Barr with Raise the Barr Coaching and Consulting. The Monarch School Project (MSP) worked with Beverly over the course of the 2022-23 school year to help us identify and resolve issues that were affecting employee retention and turnover. Beverly has a deep understanding of what it takes to be an effective leader. By targeting our areas of growth, she challenged us to work collaboratively on resolving conflict, dismantling silos, and achieving goals. I appreciated Beverly’s ability to connect our organizational mission. to the way we work as individuals and in teams. She conducted a comprehensive needs assessment across our entire management team, then custom-designed a training series to address the needs that were identified. Her approach was both practical and thoughtful, and our workshops motivated the team to act and implement the strategies we discussed. I strongly recommend Beverly as a trainer, coach, and partner in leadership. Her expertise, insight, and support have had a lasting impact on our work. Beverly, thank you for your commitment to helping MSP’s leadership team achieve its full potential together. You helped us raise the bar, for sure!"

"Bev is one of the most gifted people I have ever worked with. In one conversation with her, you are drawn in by her magnetic personality, vivacious energy, and her ease to make sense of any complicated situation. I have owned my own business for over 15 years and have been approached many times about coaching with little interest. After meeting Beverly, I knew I wanted to take a chance at it. In the 3-month commitment I made with Beverly, I broke through a multi-year stagnant mindset I had created for myself. I reorganized my goals on a daily, weekly, yearly, and long-term basis. I reconnected with what motivated me and was able to get back to the place where I was excited again about what I was doing and where I was going. My numbers for signed contracts and new clients grew exponentially by the end of our 90-day coaching period. I would highly recommend Beverly to anyone who is looking to reconnect with their inner fire and propel themselves to their greatest potential."

"Beverly, I appreciate you so much! Throughout our work together, your person-centered, goal-oriented coaching motivated and inspired me to take confident, decisive action. I felt buoyed by your enthusiasm, and even more importantly, supported and encouraged by your clear and compassionate communication. Your insightful approach and nuanced questions were invaluable in keeping me on track and on purpose. Your positive spirit and can-do attitude were infectious and kept my momentum alive from one call to the next. I felt I could accomplish anything. From your example, I took my self-talk to a whole new level of positivity and was able to overcome nagging doubts that in the past would diminish and distract me from what I wanted to achieve. Throughout our time together I felt heard and understood, acknowledged, and appreciated, supported, and cared for by you. Talking with you brought me to a new place of calm certainty that what I was embarking on was achievable. Our weekly conversations inspired me to take consistent, focused, and intentional action. Each action leads to the next step on my goal line. As a result of your purposeful process, supportive presence, deep understanding, and genuine compassion, it is now easier for me to generate a positive attitude, take productive action and achieve more satisfying outcomes in my life."
