“The Corporate Coach Program is the most relevant training I have had in 30 years. It is a game-changer for organizational development.”
Steve Nail, Dean of Anderson University's College of Business
“Cheri is a gem of a professional coach that I was introduced to through OB Hospitalist Group. Cheri is a brilliant listener and has the right amount of insight and opened ended questions to lead you to discover how to be a better team mate and physician. In Medical School, we are taught facts and differential diagnosis. No one bothers to teach the finer art of dealing with many Type A people in a high stress situation. Cheri has introduced me to DiSC assessments to help me be a better communicator with my fellow coworkers. Cheri takes my previous knowledge and helps me apply it to the current situation. She amplifies my knowledge and reaffirms my faith that continuing to grow in knowledge and skills helps me become the physician God created me to be.”
Becky Graham, Physician
“Cliff Stanley’s coaching on strategic leadership and how to lead a large-organization is priceless. There is no one better in this industry! His hands-on personal leadership development was extremely beneficial to me in my career. Cliff’s high-energy and enthusiasm about his developmental topics is very contagious. I easily related to his stories, which drove home the learning. I learn something new every time I talk to Cliff, and I’m able to put it into action immediately. There is NO ONE BETTER.”
Lawrence A. Colby, Author, The Devil Dragon Pilot, and CEO, Mach278 LLC

"Cindy led our team’s Registered Corporate Coach Designation class to perfection. It was two days of new ideas, fabulous information, and opportunities to practice coaching with other coaches. I got so much out of this class and Cindy was the perfect facilitator feeding us information and directing us to personal and professional insights that will enhance my own career and coaching aspirations.”
Ken Pratt, Vice President of Marketing at Frontline Education

George W. Flowers, Esq., Nonprofit Executive
"I have high praise for Cindy Lamir as my personal and business coach.
Cindy is my personal and business coach because she creates an environment where I grow. She helps me to understand what I truly want and then what I need to do to get it. You can rely on Cindy to be professional and personal; intuitive and intelligent; forceful and still feeling. Her balance between empathy and results makes it easier to hear the honest and yet hard things that we all need to hear from time-to-time.
Cindy would not be a good coach for everyone. If you aren’t willing to do the work necessary to achieve your goals or if you do not place a high value on personal integrity you will find that Cindy’s values and methods probably will not work well for you. On the other hand, if you want someone who will support your business growth from a holistic viewpoint, Cindy would be a fantastic match for you.
Cindy has helped me to work through the thought processes necessary to develop two new products and keep my focus on daily operations. I’m sure that she can do that and more for you!”
Jim Thornton, CEO, Catalyst Clinic
“My first impression of Cheri is still crystal clear: this lady is smart - and I can trust her.
Actually, I've learned in the years since then that my intuition was right, and yet had barely scratched the surface. Here's what I'd say now. Cheri is one of the most compassionate, perceptive, authentic people I know. And she's tough. As my executive coach, she gently unpacked some vital issues with me, helping me discover them for myself through her insightful questions. She knows how to probe deeply while showing profound respect, allowing me to see things within that I could've never seen on my own.
If you're ready to make some new discoveries, implement positive changes, and realize your full potential, I strongly recommend a conversation with Cheri Shumate.”
Paul Clark, Director of Advancement at American Leprosy Missions

“Cindy Lamir is a business coach who “knows her stuff”! She is a great listener; detail oriented and “sees” the whole picture to help you accomplish your desired goals. Her strong philosophy to “envision your best” and work to get there is spot on. She was instrumental in helping me write my first communication book.

Chairman of the Board, Hired Cindy Lamir as a Team and Individual Coach
“Cindy successfully coached me and my team through a challenging set of circumstances that threatened the health of our organization and divided the staff. As a result of her support, we strengthened our position and unified the team’s vision for the work.
Cindy listened carefully and was extremely perceptive. She prepped me in advance for difficult staff meetings and her debriefings gave me the confidence to continue addressing uncomfortable and unprofessional behavior in the office.
Cindy’s keen observation and listening skills allowed us to identify underlying issues and address problems beyond those readily apparent. Her strong social & communication skills provided the ideal mediation between me and my staff.”
Executive Director, Hired Cindy Lamir as a Team and Individual Executive Coach
“Before working with Impact Business Coaches, I needed more focus and defined strategies to help me accomplish my goals. Cindy provided support and accountability- and helped me to see the roadblocks to my success. I am now self-aware of my strengths and blind spots -and I have the tools to stay unstuck and to move forward in accomplishing my best!”
Real Estate Broker, Hired Cindy Lamir as an Executive Coach
“My experience with you has been mind-altering. It is profound what is unfolding for me. I am beginning to understand your original conversation about focusing on my strengths and building on them and letting go of having to be able to do it all and know it all. I am now involved in the process of looking back over my life and remembering the times I felt most inspired, valued and fully engaged. I have done visioning about my work life in the past, but never with the focus of assessing my core strengths and passions. Looking at what really blocks me has helped me to shift out of my “stuckness” and lack of clarity. You have my deepest appreciation.”
Executive in Transition, Hired Cindy Lamir as an Executive Coach
“I have had the pleasure and the privilege of experiencing Cheri's coaching skills as she led me through the formulation of my 'intention statement' declaring the direction of my future. Her sensitivity to the power of words gave an added depth, meaning and coherence to my thoughts. I found that Cheri brings to each encounter the compassion and mindfulness needed to create a safe space for exploration and creativity. As a surgeon I appreciated her intimate understanding of the unique needs of physicians. Cheri has my unqualified endorsement.”
Bruce Jacobson MD, CPDC, Certified Life and Physician Development Coach
“I had the pleasure of being a participant in Impact Business Coaches annual event, the Coaches Circle. Cheri was a terrific presenter. She was approachable, open and really informed with her approach. She has a very easy speaking style and interacted with the group in an engaging manner. Her topic was "Coaching Physicians for Improved Communication" and Cheri was masterful in her command of the topic as well as her use of examples. I look forward to seeing her present again.”
