Our lives are in constant motion toward greater success.
In over thirteen years of coaching executives all around the world, I’ve learned that moving forward requires a sequence of specific steps. First, you have to understand yourself - fully and honestly. Then, you need to set an intention for what you need to change or how you’d like to be different. Only then can you move toward realizing your goal.
And, for the greatest possible success, this approach needs to be customized to you - to how you learn, to who you are, to how you work best.
This is what I do as your coach. This is my life’s work and I’ve been able to do it with people around the world who are now achieving things they never thought they could achieve.
It’s the best feeling ever.
And since I believe in transparency, my packages and offers are laid out clearly and straightforwardly on my Coaching page.
Are you ready to get started? Because I can’t wait to see what we’ll create together!
Powerful Coaching. Powerful Results.
"I first went to Michele out of curiosity. I come back for the results! It is amazing how she knows just which questions to ask to generate a new energy and thought process. When I’m stuck, I call Michele. When I want to test an idea and have someone turn it on its ear, I call Michele. There are lots of people with experience but Michele just has that something extra – wisdom and a Zen-like quality – that helps me put it all together!"
Susan DeFife Askew
Entrepreneur, lifelong student
"Michele is both insightful and articulate. She has a wonderful way of giving and imparting her expertise so that both her clients and her audience come away with goals and a real vision of how they are going to make lasting changes that will serve them well at work and at home."
President and CEO
"Michele has a keen intuition and gentle demeanor which enable her to ask the right questions in the right way, so I feel safe to explore uncomfortable and powerful issues. She is a first rate executive coach that I highly recommend for her creative approach, thoughtful technique and superb listening skills."
Julie M Hodack
Leadership Coach and Educator
"Michele's eye is forever on the prize, which isn't making the most money, but making the most of your gifts, skills, and potential, and making danged sure you know the value of those things to the people you can best serve. I walked in with one offer and walked out with three, the main idea solidified, a fledgling idea validated, and an idea I never saw coming."
"Michele has a forward thinking approach that was would benefit anyone in pursuit of professional growth. Her capabilities as a coach along with her teaching skills are outstanding."
"Michele cut through two years of stuck in just two sessions. She identified the real problem almost immediately, and moved me through it all with compassion. My business is now moving forward, growing and I feel confident and hopeful for the first time in a long while."
"Michele helped me to approach challenges with confidence. Rather than providing answers, she offered perspective and helped me to reframe situations, always empowering me to be in control. With her guidance, I learned new tools for making plans, taking action, and getting results."
Michele is an experienced professional. She understands her customer needs, she listens, and she is smart, articulate, and practical. Michele is a delightful person and an excellent pro."
I have found coaching to be among the most important components of evolving my career in a more fulfilling and rewarding direction. Though skeptical at first, once I embraced Michele’s approach and process, it not only opened new pathways forward, but I also found it so powerful that I encouraged my business partner to engage Michele and brought her into our company to help us.
