Mark's listening abilities allow him to quickly absorb information and synthesize it practical, insightful and focused dialogue to help clarify issues and define direction. His enthusiasm for possibility inspires me to persist. He brings broad experience to bear on issues, which contributes to clarifying next steps. Any time invested with Mark is time well spent. - John, Mill Valley CA
"I wish I could express how profound an impact my coach, Mark Voorsanger, has had on my life. All I can express is gratitude. THANK YOU MARK! YOU'RE AMAZING! From my lowest points to my greatest achievements, Mark has facilitated my progress both personally and professionally. Wherever I'm stressing, Mark is on the phone, and in my corner, each week helping to figure out the best path forward. I'd highly recommend you have at least one call with Mark to get new insight into whatever you're biggest challenge is right now. I'd be happy to introduce you!"

"Mark is one the finest human beings I know and acts with extraordinary integrity in everything he does. He is deeply committed to a path of collaboration and has led workshops and learning experiences that help people become powerfully and effectively inclusive. I have learned so much from working closely with him and count him among the finest in our craft."
- Keith Merron, San Rafael CA
"Mark is a highly diplomatic operator, but doesn't avoid raising a difficult insight if it needs to be heard. He won't tell his clients what to do; he will work with them to help them clearly establish what it is they're trying to do and then enable them to work collaboratively together to meet the challenges they're facing in order to achieve their goals. Many trainers and facilitators aim to do this and struggle to deliver, because it is a hugely challenging and highly skilled task - but Mark is the real deal."
- Hamish McPhail, San Anselmo CA
"Mark was recommended to me during a crossroads in my career. Although we live in different time zones, meeting by phone never lessened the benefits, growth and value I gained during each session. His soft-spoken, positive, and encouraging demeanor was exactly what I needed to answer tough questions and take my next steps. Although change does not happen overnight, my peers have commented on how I have grown into a confident leader. I couldn't have done it without Mark's help."
