 “Dorothy is the real deal!
She was instrumental in helping me get “unstuck”.  She allowed me to talk through my professional goals and aspirations then challenged me to break through to what I really wanted. She helped me understand not only how I would get to where I wanted to be, but why I wanted to go there. She is smart, ethical and confident in what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking something more out of their career.”
Larry B. Martin, Director of The Black Male Empowerment Center
Medgar EversCollege/City University of New York
“Dorothy Doppstadt, Executive and Organizational Coach, is one of the best personal and professional investments I could have ever made. My only regret is that I had not discovered the value of executive coaching early in my career. I highly recommend Dorothy as a coach, workshop facilitator, public speaker or career consultant. She is skillful at what she does! This is a woman you want “rooting” for you.”
Dr. Janice M. Borlandoe
Former College vice president
