“Ron genuinely stands out above others. I’ve met countless coaches but before hiring Ron I had the good fortune to have witnessed him diligently applying, in his own time of challenge, the very standards that he has so passionately written and spoken about. Because of this integrity and his skill and experience, coaching with Ron has brought me a level of personal awareness and insight that I was not aware I could achieve. His authentic style–and the range in his approach has unlocked a focus and determination in me to pursue the things I want most in my work life. I would not hesitate to recommend Ron to anyone who wants to step up to becoming his or her very best.”

– Bill McLean, COO, Optimum Talent

“I was a highly successful VP in the automotive industry but something in my life was missing. I wasn’t satisfied in looking ahead to the next 20 years of my life, so I contacted Ron Renaud. His coaching was like a lightning bolt into my world. Ron ripped apart every one of my excuses and tore me down to reveal my real truth, my real wants, and my real quest. Because of Ron’s wisdom, brutal honesty and persistence with coaching me, I now run my own business doing something I LOVE! I have my freedom and I am in control of my life. Thank you, Ron!”

– Dan McClave, Entrepreneur

“Ron’s coaching style truly embodies the best of the ‘tough love’ approach. He will push, stretch and challenge you way beyond what you thought was possible in your life and work and he does it all with just the right combination of power and grace. Be prepared to have all your excuses crushed, all your assumptions torn apart, all your habits broken. And then he’ll facilitate the rebuild of your life and work according to who you are at your very greatest. It’s transformative and essential for anyone looking to live and lead at the highest level.”

– Devin Wilson, Chief Brand Officer, Double Cross Vodka

“Ron is a true partner and professional to work with; I specifically sought him out for his expertise in the leadership-coaching field. It was his unique skill set, his great sense of humor, practical viewpoint, honesty…and the easiness he had communicating directly, the root cause of my unwanted behaviors, that put me at ease to have an open and honest conversation. From there, he helped me see the root of the problem and the “triggers” that fueled these behaviors. We worked side by side to generate my own “Personal Standards” to smooth out the rough edges and reinforce the leadership behaviors I did want. Now, not only is my team excelling but I have people seeking me out, like never before, to help them personally and professionally.”

– Rich Lishewski, Sr. Director Global Talent Acquisition, Nike

Ron has a powerfully direct and honest way of getting right to the heart of great coaching —and skillfully demonstrating the vital difference between coaching being mediocre —and great. My practice is growing as I coach more courageously and I feel clearer about what I want, where I am going and who I am as a coach. I highly recommend UCGym for any coach who wants to be a great(er). ”
