Lucky for me, Mitch had been available as a coach and mentor early in my career. From my days at CMP Media Inc., where I reported to him, to later on when I left to start my own company he always offered sage advice. His even-tempered, good-humored personality made it easy to work with and for him.

Mitch York has been my personal and business coach since July 2004. In the beginning of our relationship he helped me define and better understand where I wanted to be in both my personal and professional lives. From there, he has helped me every step of the way from strategy identification to organization management and winning ideal clients. Below are a few ways that he helped me upfront, and how he continues to keep me focused on what’s important in my world: – goal setting, management and realization – being a sounding board during times of change – reviewing key communications and marketing materials – helping to keep me focused on my business goals – helping me manage human resources Mitch also takes an interest in my personal life by making sure I continue to stay balanced. He has also attended important personal events, including a fundraiser that I organized for a children’s foundation. My wife and I feel like Mitch is a part of our extended family. He has been a key contributor to our business success and personal happiness. I always look forward to our coaching sessions and prepare for them as thoroughly as I would a client or prospect meeting.

I have found Mitch to be scrupulously honest, passionately dedicated, and singularly loyal to colleagues, family, and friends. He exhibits exceptionally high ethical standards! His quite unique ability to establish trust, credibility, and rapport equips him to be an ideal leader and an extremely effective coach and mentor. He has a remarkable gift – the ability to evoke excellence in others. Mitch “contaminates” people with positive energy, an elevated sense of self-esteem, and a commitment to measurable achievement. Mitch’s quite formidable academic accomplishments, business acumen, and professional experience/knowledge are complemented by his pragmatic, down to earth common sense. He is a terrific communicator and is able to extend theory into action. Mitch understands the political dynamics of complex organizations, and is a very effective tour guide for negotiating political obstacles that frequently complicate organizational effectiveness.

Mitch has been a mentor to me for the entire span of our five year relationship: both as my boss and when I started my own company. He is the perfect coach, as his ability to sort through issues, contemplate and assess situations, present options and be forceful when necessary is exactly what a good coach should be. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

I’ve known Mitch for almost 20 years. As a manager, he ranks hands down as the best I’ve worked for. Smart, articulate, patient, kind, funny, modest, honorable—the kind of leader who inspires people subtly, not through theatrics. He listens; he is thoughtful and considerate in his assessments of ideas and people; he has a keen sense of perspective, on work and on life.
- Julie Moline, freelance journalist
Mitch was a terrific leader at LendingTree – providing direction and inspiration for employees at all levels, while also managing key external relationships with investors and lenders in the network. His gift was his ability to translate the company’s strategies in a way that guided people’s day-to-day work, no matter what their role at the company.
- Mary Beth Navarro, senior VP, Wachovia
Mitch is one of the few people in life that I consider to be a mentor. His ability to seamlessly move between different business markets and master each one is something that should be taught in classrooms. I had the advantage of learning from him for many years as a manager in a continually-changing landscape. More than ten years later, his influence is absolutely present in how I conduct myself and run my business.
- Julie Chiesa, President, InfoDirectors
Mitch has been one of the greatest mentors I have had the pleasure of working with at CMP Media, where his talents as an online media crusader helped me find solutions to complex problems that resulted in helping me and my team achieve tremendous revenue growth. As I opt back into the workplace, Mitch was my first phone call. He is now my Executive Coach. You don’t have to have past experience working with Mitch to get results. He has a unique ability to understand people and their individual needs. Mitch helps you strategize on not simply finding a job, but rather a career you are passionate about. Simply put, big ideas, big heart and creative thinking are what Mitch is all about!
