What People Are Saying

Interview Prep
Paul Templeton

Dan was easy to work with and effective. I tend to ramble, and he helped me make my answers more direct and concise. I had a great phone interview after working with him for a single session, and will definitely consider him in the future should l need additional help.

In addition to being an outstanding talent acquisition partner, Dan also excels at career coaching and resume building. He provides strategic insights into how to get your resume and online profiles to stand out by highlighting key outcomes in an objective manner. I strongly recommend partnering with fairwindslogiX for either your corporate recruitment needs or your own professional development (or both)!

Paul Gutierrez

Dan was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely thorough for both the company and the candidate (myself). I could tell that he cared to ensure this worked for me as well as the company from the very beginning. He also asked some insightful questions to ensure that I felt it was the right opportunity for me. Thank you Dan! I will use your services in the future when I am hiring candidates for my teams.

So much of the job search journey was new to me - both from a technological standpoint (LinkedIn function, etc), and in terms of effective communication throughout the process. Dan put me together, and continues to support me along each step of the way. The whole thing is a lot less daunting with Dan in my corner. I highly recommend his services!

Dan and I were introduced recently and we developed a level of trust and professional bond very quickly. His views and inputs are invaluable. We did a podcast together on one of my articles and it was great fun. Dan is insightful, engaging and full of experience. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who is considering coaching and recruiting. Thanks Dan

What are coaching sessions like?

There are a couple of ways you can make the most out of a coaching session

      1. Identify your goals and areas to focus on with your coach
      2. Keep a journal so you can track your progress
      3. Be open to exploration and change
      4. Be prepared to be challenged
      5. Expect change

The goal of each session is entirely dependent upon what you want to achieve

Typically consists of a series of one-on-one sessions that usually last 45 to 60 minutes each, once a week. Sometimes we meet every two weeks or even just once a month – depending on your needs. 

Absolutely!  The purpose of a consultation is so we can determine together if coaching can provide value to you.  It is important to have a trusting relationship and good chemistry for success.

      1. Come with an open mind to position yourself for success
      2. Set appropriate expectations
      3. Open up and be honest with yourself
      4. Focus on your goals
      5. Make it a true partnership
      6. Set the right atmosphere
