TestimonialsWhat our clients say
Life Coaching Client
Michelle is part strategist, thought provoker, and cheerleader. She was an invaluable source of advice, motivation and guidance, supporting me in my life journey. Michelle had a knack of knowing how to bring purpose and meaning to my chaotic thinking, effectively identify my strengths, and helping me to sift through and identify what I really wanted. She asked the right questions, provided the right amount of validation, and truly empowered me to understand, own and overcome my fears, which were directly related to the success of my business. Michelle is a gifted & intuitive listener, compassionate, patient & insightful. She instills a belief that with the right mindset, anything is possible. I find myself remembering and utilizing many of the things she taught me as I continue on my path. I would highly recommend Michelle for anyone looking for someone real and honest, a true coach.
VP / Health Care
Working with Michelle we focused on team dynamics, leading a semi virtual team, building trust and building interdependence in a siloed and dysfunctional group. Coaching strengthened my confidence in having difficult conversations and challenging high performance and improved the overall health and effectiveness of my team.
VP / Oil and Gas
Michelle is probably one of the only people that has challenged me intellectually and emotionally. She asked some of the hardest questions and challenged me to think outside of my status quo. A female leader, in a predominantly male industry, I now feel empowered, confident and influential in speaking up and contributing to the business.
VP / Financial Services
Michelle created a safe and respectful environment for me to explore my blind spots. Her thoughtful introspection, insight and depth of enquiry into my relationship with others and myself was challenging. I have benefited from Michelle's candid, curious and deep intuition to explore the issues I was wanting to avoid or did not recognize in my demeanor and behavior. Thankfully, Michelle's courage to go there has resulted in a new leadership brand and executive presence.
