As Michelle says: “I’ve loved all my training, particularly the training that has taken me out of the country.  I have found great value in working with other international coaches and better understanding the state of the industry internationally.  The Coaching across Cultures training has been valuable in developing a much broader definition of what cross-cultural coaching asks from us as coaches and global leaders.  Being part of international networks demands a lot of my free time – we’re expected to contribute to the greater good of the network and this requires research and regular on-line meetings.  I consider all of this as part of my continued professional development.
Coaching is SA?  Michelle says she doesn’t think this is a developing sector anymore – coaching education here is of a high standard, and our coaches are on par with coaches across the globe.

Go well Michelle – we look forward to following your journey!
