TESTIMONIALS

"I was immediately drawn to Ruth Esau as she approached leadership from a fascinating perspective. She taught us that we really had to understand ourselves and our own leadership style to be able to effectively lead.

Ruth taught me to ask myself a lot of questions about how to work through challenges that presented themselves while preparing for the future stages of growth for the nonprofit organization I just began.

A lot of self discovery was involved as we all learned about our strengths and what set of gifts essentially led us to where we were serving or working at the moment. It also helped us understand where we would most effectively lead in the future.

My peers in this cohort were seasoned leaders and there wasn’t one woman in this cohort who didn’t need something that Ruth had to offer. These women had worked hard for years pouring themselves out in successful ministries and businesses and they needed perspective. They needed someone who was excellent in their field to help them reach their next level of training and leadership so they were ready for what God had next for them to take on.

I saw women become better equipped, inspired, challenged, informed, educated,refined, encouraged, and prepared for the future ahead. Each one of us was deeply thankful for this ministry and this opportunity to evaluate the past, present and future, to set our eyes on Jesus and with incredibly seasoned guidance from Ruth, to plan, set goals, to forgive, to learn, to move forward, to overcome setbacks or walls, and toembrace what God had ahead.

With that said, each women was undeniably unique and different from one another in our approaches to life, people, success, and natural tendencies, yet Ruth  intuitively as a seasoned pro, knew what questions to ask, how to guide the conversation, when to dig deeper in someone’s thought processes, and how to ask questions that helped each women discover the answers within themselves. She knew when to challenge and when to push, but also when to completely sit back and facilitate the process of discovery.

"I entered into the Called to Lead Co-hort in fall of 2013.  Over the past ten years I have been privileged to attend several seminars and conferences on leadership.  My experience with Inspired to Lead was extremely positive, and was well worth my time and my money.  I don't hesitate to say it was one of the best leadership training experiences I have had. What sets this experience above others is the personal application aspects of the course that equipped me to apply many of the principles to my current leadership situations."

"Ruth is an incredible leadership coach. Her intelligence, thoughtfulness and experience had every session pushing me and my organization further towards our mission. Having her along my side made addressing complex organizational challenges and growing my capacities an exciting and joyful experience.  I continue to think of our conversations when navigating problems. Ruth's coaching is infused with thought-provoking questions and stories based on decades of leadership/organizational experience. I always leave her office inspired and energized with a new or renewed perspective. I'd recommend her services to any leader who is ready to grow smartly and with intention."

"I have had the privilege to learn from and be inspired by Ruth through her instruction and one on one mentorship. Her broad experience in the church world, the business world and the world of non-profits gives her an edge. Ruth will tell you the truth to make you better and walk alongside you on your own leadership journey. She will strategize with you, equip you and celebrate with you. If you get a chance to work with her...do it!"

Val Lieske, Executive Directr Fire Exit Theatre

Calgay, Alberta

"As an Executive Director of a large not for profit, it was difficult to to find a confident with whom I could explore opportunities and concerns and get an objective perspective - within a confidential environment. Ruth was able to help me distill key issues, explore solutions, and know the next steps to progressing the organization forward. Her coaching was holistic so she was able to keep the business and organizational goals in mind, while helping me understand how I could use my strengths and personal style to accomplish what needed to get done. Ruth's style was to ask great questions, suggest options, and look beyond the obvious. Her "homework" kept me on track and I knew I could call her any time. I found Ruth's coaching so helpful, I offered it to all our management team!"

Lisa Falkowsky, Former EXecutive Director of CWES

Calgay, Alberta

“Ruth has the ability to help you think about how to move some of those organizational and leadership ‘mountains’ that hinder so many of us.  I appreciated her challenging and yet compassionate questions that helped us think more clearly and be more effective in raising up and developing new leaders.  She had a proven record in helping people reach their leadership potential.”
