Quotes March 28, 2011 When I first came to DCI in 2007, Teri was a tremendous teacher and mentor, not only about how to navigate and succeed at DCI but also about applying these lessons to every day life. Her mantra of "under-promise and over-deliver" is something that I still utilize today. I highly value the role she played as a mentor and recommend her to others as well. Quotes

Quotes August 25, 2011 I really enjoyed my time at DCI Group and learned a lot about the public relations and lobbying industry. Teri had a lot to do with it. She was an excellent supervisor, manager and mentor. During my time at DCI, she supervised all of the summer interns, about eight of us, a very diverse and talented group. She did a great job matching us up with teams and projects, and fostered a collaborative environment. Involved and inquisitive without being overbearing, she embodies all of the characteristics of a great supervisor. She would hold weekly meetings with the interns as a group to discuss our experiences, successes, and not-quite-successes. This experience was unique to any other internship I had, and really enhanced the learning experience and collaborative environment. Quotes

Quotes 2014-11-14 Teri's mentoring style balances being very supportive and encouraging with also being very specific and detail-oriented. She pays close attention to the ICF competencies and finds specific examples of how the coaching matches the competencies. The specificity with which she provided feedback worked great for me. She would create abbreviated transcripts and there were times when we listened to parts of a recorded call together, so she was able to clearly articulate specifically what I said or did, what she heard as the impact on the client, as well as how it applied to the competencies of ACC level and even beyond. Her mentoring helped anchor some of my strengths and also helped me grow stronger with using visual metaphors and getting more specific with calls to action Quotes

Quotes Teri is thoughtful and insightful in her coaching. She is very patient, at times challenging and uses silence to maximum effect. She dances in the moment and intuitively knows when to probe deeper and when to move on. Teri is extremely adept at holding a mirror in front of her clients and helping them study their reflections. She has a number of tools in her toolkit, and she knows when and where to use them. Teri taught me to slow down when working with my clients - that a slow, more measured pace gives them space to process and take time out - a luxury they often don't get in their normal daily life.
