No one explains our impact better than our clients. Take a look at what our clients say about Sockwell Performance Advisors.

“Allen brings a unique blend of business savvy, executive presence and pragmatism to executive coaching. We have worked with Allen on a variety of coaching assignments, some to address possible ‘derailing’ behaviors and others to polish or help fill in gaps in the ‘last few feet’ of the executive development process. Rather than a canned, jargon filled, cookie cutter approach, Allen works with the executive and his/ her manager, peers and team members to identify the key issues and works with the executive as they develop a personalized action plan. Working with Allen is viewed as a benefit and the company’s commitment to executive success.”

CHRO, Fortune 300 Company

“Allen provides great counsel and he is extremely perceptive on people issues. His deep and broad experience has proven very helpful as I was transitioning into a CEO. He helped in many aspects and was very valuable as a sounding board to me during the time we were making difficult decisions and keeping our employees motivated.”

Dan Artusi

Chief Executive Officer, Lantiq

“Every team goes through growing pains, whether an early stage startup, or a more mature business in transition. Allen is a wonderful executive coach helping keep teams at peak performance.”

Brian R. Smith

Managing Director, S3 Ventures & former CEO, Crossroads Systems

“Allen masters the ‘people’ equation for business leaders. He was a sage counselor and advisor to me during a particularly tough transition for our management team. His analysis of the situation, strategies and action plan got me on track quickly and helped lead to a great outcome for the business. I would recommend Allen highly.”

Phil Myers

Chief Executive Officer, StoredIQ

“Allen has been a key driver in our growth and provided both a sounding board and deep advice from his years of executive HR experience. I would highly recommend him for any company that would like to increase its performance through executive leadership and organizational optimization.”

Erik Huddleston

Chief Executive Officer, TrendKite

“He is tech savvy, tough but fair and very direct. He is good at helping executives see the behavior that can ‘derail’ their careers and while he understands many can’t change their basic personality, he helps them find ways to manage through or around the issues.”

CHRO, Fortune 500 Tech Company

“I believe one of the limiting factors to people and teams reaching their potential is not being able to see their problems. Allen is exceptional at both shining a light on the hot spots and then coaching around potential solutions to overcome. Truly one of the most effective people and organizational system specialists I have partnered with.”

COO, High Growth PE Backed Energy Company

“Allen has been an effective coach and advisor during a time of significant growth for our company. His advice and support during key executive on boarding has helped us quickly become a better leadership team. Allen’s advice is grounded in deep experience and an understanding of how to drive improved business performance.”

CEO, PE Backed Company

“Allen has been very helpful to me by holding up the mirror honestly and challenging me to step up to the challenges of a new global role.”
