What clients say about Christina McFadden:

  • Christina is an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped me explore my edges, boundaries, strengths, and areas of growth. I feel like, in the time we’ve known each other, I’ve grown into a different person entirely. I’m super excited about the changes to keep on rolling.~ VP of Marketing
  • Christina has truly transformed the way I see myself and manage my professional and personal lives. She has equipped me with so many tools by way of real reflection. Not always the easiest to hear, the observations and feedback she had for me spoke to me in a way that my defenses were down the very same day I first met her. That speaks to her skills, personality, and authenticity. And for that, I am grateful to her, and to my company for allowing our paths to cross. ~ VP of Engineering
  • I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with Christina and for the wisdom and joyfulness she brings to her work. She asks sharp questions, really listens, improvs and pushes into unexpected directions, and lights up exciting new pathways. Unusually insightful -- her process wasn't at all what I expected and was just what I needed. ~ Head of Strategy

Important qualities Christina McFadden brings to her clients: Honest, upfront, playful, space for her client to show up completely, and support for her clients to make big steps.
