Barney’s values-based approach and style of coaching were a great fit for me – part life coach, part career advisor, part cheerleader.  Working with Barney allowed me to better understand my values to develop stronger connections and enjoyment in work and in life, based on those values.”

Barney Feinberg shows us how they are the entryway to a huge expansion in our business friendships (all friendships, for that matter) and accordingly, our success.

Try it.” – Wayne Caskey, Master Executive Coach

“Barney Feinberg’s values-based “Chemistry Factor” coaching method is both timeless and modern in its approach. It’s based on a simple premise: we can all be the best version of ourselves if we mindfully empower the values that drive us and find authentic ways to connect with others through them. As a coach, Barney is dedicated, empathetic, and non-judgmental. As a human being, which is perhaps more important, he’s kind, generous, and has integrity.” – Jason Schlossberg, Chief Creative officer – Public Relations

“I have been working with Barney for over 12 years and every year of coaching has been increasingly more productive than the last thanks to his ever-enthusiastic support. I am an expert in developing creative thought, being an artist, a teacher and having written a book on creativity. Every Friday morning when we talk, I get a sense of how much more creativity is available, uncovering alternative points of view that I never considered: he consistently shines a light into areas of life that had been invisible to me, always leading to opportunities for action.” – David Judelson, Artist and Teacher

Now that you’ve heard from our clients, learn more about Barney Feinberg, CEO of The Chemistry Factor.

“Executives who have been working in a company for a long time can become bored and de-motivated. They are so caught up in the how to succeed in their work, they find it hard to change their style. The same can be said for their business relationships.

“They approach their work a certain way and if someone new has a different approach they can easily disconnect, sometimes smiling on the outside and frustrated on the inside. This cascades into weakening company moral. Learning to create new value perspectives gives executives greater flexibility to approach both their work and business relationships with a renewed enthusiasm.”
