Michelle's professionalism, sincerity, and wonderful sense of humour have made my first coaching experience a very rewarding one. I have gained insight about myself, have learned strategies to be more effective, and have increased my confidence, all of which are invaluable as I continue to learn and grow.
With Michelle facilitating the meetings and other team members sharing their insights, I learned a great deal that I have used in my business.
Having a regular coaching session with Michelle to think through my goals, identify the mental and practical roadblocks in the way, brainstorm possible solutions and commit to taking action has been powerful. Were it not for our work together, the steps would never have been taken. During this time, we redesigned my week for optimal work/life balance and efficiency; this has made a significant impact in all areas of my life. As a result of working with Michelle, I have succeeded in reducing distractions, increasing focus, and taking time for what is most important to me.
Michelle challenges me to view success as the risks I take to get me to the place that I am attempting to go to.
I had never had a coach before and I wasn't sure what to expect from one. Michelle made a concerted effort to determine my key success drivers and motivators. She helped me ensure that any decisions I made or goals I set for myself were consistent with my fundamental principles and values. Michelle takes a very personal interest in my progress and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
With the day-to-day challenges, I simply was not taking the time to focus on my business plan. Michelle and her coaching program helped me develop concrete action steps to meet both short and long-range business and personal goals.
Michelle is an excellent personal coach and business coach. She is great at getting me to think about my beliefs and thought processes and challenging me to look at situations from another perspective without imposing her own view. She provides valuable tools and resources to assist me in the process and is extremely good at acknowledging progress and achievement.
Michelle's Your Best Life Program motivated me to complete many personal and business projects this year. In the few years prior to participating, I had not been following through with some of my business and personal goals. I have become much more organized, sold our business of 25 years, and am moving on to many different goals in the future. I would recommend Michelle and the Your Best Life program to anyone who wants to complete business and/or personal goals.
I now have some new ways of clarifying what I want to create as a business owner, some new tools to help me do that, and a great connection with other people with similar issues.
...different from other coaches is her ability to determine the actions needed to support me to make changes. She helped me to design environments and create new structures aligned with personal and professional goals. I would recommend Michelle to anyone.
