Adria sees people’s strengths and calls them forth powerfully, whether she is coaching individuals or teams. She also has a gift for thinking strategically. I am a grateful student of her ability to think “Big Picture” and anticipate impact. She is always inquiring how a question or activity will move an individual or team forward. Adria is dedicated to finding ways to push the envelope and challenge people to work their growing edges. Adria is a leader’s leader. I treasure our friendship and in terms of learning how to be a powerful leader; I remain a student at the knee of the guru. I am honored to be a colleague with a woman of Adria’s integrity, fairness, generosity and good judgment.

Adria Trowhill was my guide and mentor after I had had some set backs in my ICF journey. She helped me succeed in gaining my ICF MCC credential. I am so grateful to her for her unfailing honesty, great wisdom and of course; lots of patience as I made my way on this journey. Thank you Adria! I can recommend Adria highly to anyone who is looking for an extremely experienced mentor as she was an assessor at MCC level for the ICF for many years, as well as the Dean of the Adler School of Coaching in Toronto. A great combination of skill, which together with her integrity to the profession of coaching, her kindness and accessibility, was exactly what I needed!

Adria is a superb coach practitioner. She finds creative and powerful paths to move her students forward to a greater level of mastery in their coach competencies and the development of their unique style. As a mentor, Adria has gone above and beyond in championing my growth and development as a coach. She is without a doubt, a master of her field, deserving of all the accolades such accomplishment bestows her, and yet, she mentors with grace and humility that is inspiring and relatable.
