Christine Talbot, Parent, Human Resources Executive, San Ramon

IMG_0036If there’s truth in the notion that “it takes a village” to bring up a well-grounded teen through the normal challenges and young adult formation (and I think there is truth to this idea), then I can say unequivocally that I am glad Sean was consistently available and highly effective in serving in the extended adult village that helped my son through his teens. Sean walked alongside my son over the course of many years and remains a trusted resource for guidance, as well as a sounding board and encourager. I also found Sean to be effective in partnering with me as a parent, keeping a healthy balance between teen and parent and operating with integrity. He doesn’t take on problems or situations to become the “answer man,” but rather engages with perspective and truly brings out people’s capability to grow in problem solving and in developing essential life skills.
