What is Executive Coaching?

Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to reach your personal and professional potential. It is a forward-thinking, goal-driven approach to personal change. Along with the client, coaches explore what is going inside and outside the person in order to make sense of and design meaningful, sustainable outcomes.

Coaches honour the client as the expert in their own lives and work and believe that every client is creative, resourceful and whole. In a coaching engagement, you’ll be asked ‘Who do you want to be?’ and ‘How are you going to get there?’

With this foundation, as the coach, my responsibility is to:
  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve
  • Encourage client self-discovery
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable
Your responsibility is to:
  • Be honest, open and curious
  • Be committed to exploring desired goals and outcomes
  • Decide on what accountability looks like for you

Michelle is very supportive and present for the client. She creates a safe and, at the same time, challenging space for coaching conversations” ~ A.V.

“Michelle is an excellent active listener. She has the ability to see what I was really talking about, even when I tended to ramble, and then summarize my points very concisely and effectively. These really helped stay focused on the conversation and what I wanted to talk about and that assisted me greatly. She has an easy-going style that helped us develop an instant rapport.” ~ T.I.

“I found Michelle’s coaching style great in establishing trust and effective in focusing on the coaching results as well as raising my awareness.” ~ G.F.

“Michelle has talents that she used effectively when she was my coach. Her deep thinking lead to her questions that allowed me to discover things about myself that I did not previously see. I experienced a significant number of ‘ah-ha’ moments in our conversations as her client, each of which motivated me and allowed me to progress. I highly recommend her as a coach.” ~ T.I.
