  • “Regarding Andrea’s work as my executive coach, now I’m listening, understanding, and not drawing conclusions. I ask a lot more questions versus my old, ‘here’s what I want to do, let’s get it done’ approach. Now, meetings are stimulating and challenging conversations. My people say at the end of a meeting, ‘Good meeting.’ Before they would say, ‘Do we have to have a meeting?’ Andrea helped me evaluate people more quickly and validate my feedback on evaluations I made… I’ve developed some talent here. Two to three young managers here have been promoted to VP and GM. Developing people for sustainability is my job. It’s all about talent. If I have good people we can win.

    Profitability-wise, we almost doubled our EBITDA. She contributed to that.”

    Ken Maclean
    President, U.S. President, LaFarge

  • “When sitting with line leaders, Andrea can talk based on her experience as a board member. She understands the environment, challenges, obstacles and the enablers that could be unleashed; I valued that. She’s one of most authentic people I’ve worked with. She really listens. When she plays back what heard she is usually very accurate. I’ve worked with consultants where, by the time it comes back to you, the scope is more or less than what we discussed. I never had that with Andrea. She’s very ethical, authentic.

    Andrea states what’s needed in a non-threatening way. It’s not the content that differentiates her, it’s the authenticity she brings to these interactions. She doesn’t get the client’s disease (the organizations’ ailments). She doesn’t own the problem more than you, but you definitely feel you have a partner.”

    Laura Famularo
    VP Human Resources, Johnson & Johnson

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with Andrea, I can’t say enough about her determination to do the best work possible for her clients. She is so caring, professional, nurturing, dedicated and thorough. She will not stop until the work is done and with a level of professionalism that is highly admirable. I hope to have a long future of working with Andrea.”

  • “I can’t tell you how many times I’ll meet someone at an event and they’ll ask me “Do you know Andrea Zintz?” Because to “know Andrea Zintz” is to be associated with a true OD professional who leaves a strong impression of intelligence, subject matter expertise, and integrity on those she encounters. Andrea and I have had the pleasure to work together over the past year while we are at PulvermacherFirth We have learned a lot from each other and every day I respect her more.
