Read what people are saying about ThreeJoy Associates, Inc. and Dave Goldberg:
“Retired engineering prof leads expat American housewife through personal transformation.” From the outside, this could be the headline announcing the results of my 6-month engagement with Dave. I was an unlikely client. I connected with Dave through Twitter, and then I was coached entirely through Skype.
Dave has cultivated an ability to be present and at the same time to make connections between an individual’s particular moment and a broader network of ideas and tools. Throughout coaching, I especially valued his skill in recommending relevant readings. I continue to feel amazed that in six months of coaching I went from looking out at the world and trying to figure out how to fit in to feeling confident that I can open a community space for creativity-based personal development. I am proof that Dave can be the right person to contact if you feel that you have something to offer, but you are not sure how to put it into words.
After finishing my MFA in industrial design, I faced a number of difficult career decisions and challenges as I transitioned from my long experience as a professional designer into an educator. When I signed on with Dave, I expected to address those concerns and we did, but I was not prepared for the empowerment of “feeling felt” that comes from being listened to in the deep way that Dave listens, and in trying to answer the spot-on questions he asked. Our conversations have given me a better clarity about my chocolate–the things and people in my life who bring me joy–and a greater sense of resoluteness in working through the “less-than-chocolate stuff” so I can reach a better work/life balance. Coaching with Dave is time and money well spent.

As the dean of a rapidly growing College of Engineering, I found Dave Goldberg’s support, help, and coaching invaluable as I worked through a number of personnel challenges and growing pains. Dave understands the landscape of Engineering Colleges as an insider, with nearly 30 years of experience as a distinguished engineering faculty member at one of the top Colleges in the country. He also understands leadership coaching. His skill in listening, asking questions, and challenging was formative and revealing. I was able to very successfully resolve a difficult leadership transition among my staff. I recommend him highly as a coach, a confident, and a sounding board.

As a leadership coach myself, I can confidently say that Dave Goldberg is a coach’s coach. He asks deeply penetrating questions that are both hard to answer and that must be answered. He listens, mirrors, and connects the dots that increase self-awareness and helped me shed unproductive behaviors and grow my strengths. His coaching has been instrumental as I grew in the most important leadership role of my professional career, leading a 9-member board, an association of 1,600 members and immensely increasing the company’s bottom line. If you want an effective coach who will help you reach your highest potential, Dave Goldberg is a vital resource every leader needs.
