What Clients Say

Cindy has a way of sifting through the noise of logistics and emotions, to get at the heart of an issue. She invests heavily in the experience, and success, of her clients — and her investment is obvious through the entire coaching experience. She is a powerful coach, and she has the ability to not only ask critical questions at the right time, but to model the questions you will need to ask yourself moving forward on a sustainable path to thriving.

My time working with Cindy was powerful. No matter the topic, I was able to cut through the noise that I thought I had already resolved, and come out on the other side better able to identify my desired path forward. Because of her services, I am a more intentional, curious, and confident person — and her impact in my life has been extraordinary.

If you are looking for a coach who invests with their whole self, while supporting you in befriending your own dragons — hire Cindy TODAY!!!

I highly recommend coaching with Cindy for anyone, but particularly women in tech.

Cindy has amazing insight into workplace discrimination, sexism and racism related issues particularly in tech industry. She is also a great listener and has ability to help people find what they are good at without a lot of effort. I was able to find the alternate direction I needed with her help. I highly recommend her coaching and guidance.

Cindy leverages her lived experience and coaching expertise to help people better understand issues from the perspective of people whose lives are different from ours. I participated in an anti-racism group that Cindy ran in 2021, and I looked forward to the insightful and honest discussions in every session. The program opened my eyes in many ways. Thanks to my work with Cindy, I now think about whose voices I am amplifying when I share something or buy a book.

What I appreciate most is her willingness to say hard things and call out inequities in a way that invites conversation rather than shuts it down.

Cindy is smart, resourceful and intolerant of all forms of inequities. She puts that focus to work in everything she does.

Cindy consistently grew my awareness, raised my consciousness, and contributed to creating a safe space for exploration of issues facing women in the workplace or as business owners. Her ability to coach, ask insightful questions, show leadership, responsiveness, strategic solutions for systems was always appreciated and valued by myself and other members. I also always felt how strongly she cared that each and every one of us thrived. Highly recommended.

Working with and learning from Cindy is an honor. Creating a learning environment to better ourselves through understanding intersections in life and how we can set examples to further social equity and diversity are the most worthy goals. I am so grateful to have been part of one of Cindy’s groups and grow from that experience to further understand how I can contribute as a business owner to the social good of my community.

The applause for ALL the #DataWIT speakers would be DEAFENING in person, but I think it’s possible @CindyGross would’ve brought down the damn house.”

“Best session ever!”

“Whew, @CindyGross is closing this #DataWIT session with heavy truths.”

“One of the best presentations on this topic I’ve seen.”
