I worked with Michelle as an Executive Coach and found her to be an extraordinary thinking partner. The premise of Coaching is enabling and empowering forward movement and catalyzing change; through coaching conversations with Michelle, I was able to hone and deepen my leadership skills around transformative leadership, change management, forward moving decision making, results focused leadership, to name but a few strong areas of work. 

This provided a meaningful shift in my perceptions around my leadership.

Michelle is a tough and yet gentle coach who guides you to find own solutions. She holds a mirror and creates a safe place for a tough journey. She is strong on accountability and delivery of goals/ results agreed upon, not afraid of courageous conversations. 
Very professional, wise and a pleasure to work with.

Michelle shows remarkable insight into the processes of a highly pressurized environment, giving sage insights and incredibly useful guidance while simultaneously being personable, fun and upbeat. I enjoyed our sessions very much indeed and take the learning points into each day.

I hired Michelle at a stage in my career where I needed guidance on what I should be doing next. I had multiple challenges that I needed to overcome and I felt a professional coach would help me figure this out. 

This has been the best & most valuable business and personal investment I’ve ever made. Through Michelle’s excellent coaching, I managed to gain a better understanding of myself, what I want and how I act in certain situations. I also learned a bunch of new personal skills, which I’ve already seen the benefit of in my business, home- and personal life.

Michelle was my coach for 6 months. During the time, she helped me identify and create a great brand for myself, which is proving to assist me in many ways in my personal and career life. 

She is a great sounding board and gives honest and real feedback that is constructive and forward looking. Her extensive coaching experience was seen in our conversations were she brought a different spin to the issues we were discussing. This helped me to think holistically and have a different perspective on things. 

She is a people’s person with great interpersonal skills. Her style is quite unique. 

Michelle is a great coach at Executive and Senior levels and I recommend her highly!
