What Clients Say About Judy

"Every CEO needs a coach. And Judy Sims changed my life this year. Great coaches don't validate; they expand your perspective, challenge deeply held beliefs and support you in getting unstuck. Huge gratitude to Judy who pushed me to become a better version of myself.


I've had many coaches and Judy is damn exceptional. If you're looking for a nuanced take on leadership and are willing to really get pushed outside the box, reach out to Judy. She's authentic, sharp, funny, and has a passion for purpose."

Vinod Rajasekaran

Publisher & CEO, Future of Good

"Judy started working with the Little Canada leadership team in late 2020. We are a start up with processes still being defined and new leaders tackling complex and stressful day to day challenges. 17 members of our team participated in the training and every person benefited from those sessions. We look at situations using a different lens now, collaborate more efficiently and value truth over comfort.

We are extremely happy we were able to extend our partnership with Judy and look forward to working with her again.

Leigh Billinghurst

Fmr Director, People, Culture & Wellness, Little Canada

She approached our coaching relationship with lively energy and grace, and she has an amazing ability to dive into any challenge you bring her and immediately understand all the dynamics at lay.


I am eternally grateful for the thoughtful sessions with Judy"
