There are many ways you and I can work together.
Over the years, I’ve found that my most successful clients come to me when they need to:
- Think things through
- Break down challenges into doable small steps
- Figure out a plan
- Step up as a leader
- Meet specific goals
- Handle interpersonal dynamics and office politics better
- Get clear
- Learn new skills
- Find deeper meaning and purpose
- Have more consistent success
To get there, we work in focused coaching sessions – multi-day or single day retreats, weekly or bi-weekly coaching sessions, or customized solutions based on you and your unique working style and needs.
In our work together, you can count on me to help you get crystal clear so you can navigate your world with ease and success. I’ll use assessments, tools and homework to make sure you continue to grow and learn ways to deal with your particular challenges. You can tell me anything – our work together is 100% confidential – and I hold your confidences close.
If you’re looking for coaching to support your organization or employees, please visit this page. Six-month executive coaching packages range from $13,000 to $20,000 for organizations, depending on scope. I also provide customize facilitation and training programs to support the change and growth you need.
The following packages are designed for executives and leaders who are paying out of their own pocket for coaching.
The Partnership – Annual Coaching
A full year – unlimited, on-demand, when it suits you – of coaching. This package is designed for the executive whose work is fast-paced and high-stakes. You’re at the top or near the top of the pyramid in your organization, and are navigating the demands of managing people and making the vision you have for your organization a reality. Office politics may be an issue. Things come at you fast. And you may be thinking about “what’s next”.
Regardless of what you’re facing, you want to have impact and you want to make sure you keep moving forward toward your own personal goals. You might be fielding inquiries about other opportunities. Maybe you need to reconnect and determine whether you remain in the right spot for your career growth.
Where else are you going to find a experienced, thoughtful, purposeful partner who can give you the unbiased and unfiltered feedback you need to do your best work? That’s what coaching is all about, and in our year’s work together you will emerge a stronger, more confident, more successful person.
This package starts at $25,000. There may be an additional charge depending on the scope and scale of what you need to accomplish. To Get Started, schedule your Learn More About Coaching session now.
The Strategic Plan – Six Month Coaching Program
Thirteen full hours of coaching to propel you to the success you want to achieve. Many clients choose this option when they know they need time to be thoughtful and want to solidify the learning and changes they’re creating in coaching. We meet in weekly or bi-weekly sessions at your convenience – and email between sessions or brief phone contact is also included.
Choose this option if you’re facing something that feels big and may take a little time to deal with.

Champion Intensive – One Full Day of Coaching
From time to time, clients find themselves either in Washington, DC, on business, or in a situation where they need to make the time to do a deep dive rather than to commit to one of the longer packages. For these individuals, I offer the full-day intensive. We’ll use the proven approach I’ve developed over years to move you from here to… there. Choose this option if your phone is always ringing, your days are booked with meetings and you need to break out of the pace to take some time for yourself.
This package starts at $3,750. To Get Started, schedule your Learn More About Coaching session now.
Hero Retreat – Two Days of Coaching
Some people are fast learners and want to initiate change immediately. For them, I offer a two-day retreat. Either you come to Washington, DC, or I visit you in your city (travel expenses will be extra in that situation) for two full days of targeted and systematic work together, designed to address your needs directly, using a proven approach I have honed over years of doing this work. You’ll emerge reinvigorated with doable, tactical action steps you will take toward realizing your vision.
This package starts at $7,500. To Get Started, schedule your Learn More About Coaching session now.
The Club – An Affordable Coaching Solution
I offer a program for folks who need brief, laser coaching on specific issues. The Club has been around for over seven years serving so many wonderful people around the world – I love this program. Members receive two one-on-one thirty minute phone coaching sessions per month and which is enough to maintain their momentum toward change and growth. It’s a great program for past clients, early-career people, people who know very clearly who they are and what they need to go, and those on a budget. It is not for folks who’ve never had a coach before or who like to ponder their next moves. Members can cancel at any time.
Visit The Club for more information on how this program works.
Monthly Membership: $425/mo. The Club is currently full.

When I first came to Michele I was at a personal crossroads. While I loved my marriage and my career and my life in general, I wasn’t happy; and had no idea how to get out of the funk. Michele helped me to recognize what was going well in my life, what wasn’t going quite so right. She offered perspective that good friends or family couldn’t give – because she came to me as an unbiased observer of my life. With her guidance, I began to recognize small triumphs, and how important those little victories are towards greater self-worth. She let me discover and explore my faults and pitfalls in a safe way, and how best to deal with them (and use them to my advantage). I can honestly say that I am better for having known Michele, that she was a positive force in my life.~ Colin, Business Owner

As Seen In
Michele and I have been working together for 8 months and in that time I have made great strides in both my professional and personal life. She 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. Typically when we finish a session, she will e-mail me a book, article, link or reference that is spot on to what we were just discussing. I don’t know how she does it. 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
