Impact as a coach…

Growth as a leader

“A turning point for me was when I began managing a large organization. My challenges were no longer issue specific, but instead leadership/relationship related. The journey was overwhelming, and complicated by the scope and scale of the business. After a year of struggling, I engaged Shirley as an executive coach and immediately benefited. She exceled at listening and supporting my journey. She had a keen ability to help me look in the mirror at myself which ultimately allowed me to embrace where I was at, and move toward being the leader I aspired to be”

“There are few individuals that you come across in life that truly have a lasting impact. Shirley has an ability and presence like no other; her thoughtful approach to coaching is unparalleled. A coach, a mentor, a trusted advisor; someone who will both challenge you and support you. Shirley’s ability to hone in on your ‘real need,’ help you to self-discover, and realize your full potential cannot be overstated”

Improved relationships

“My goal was to enhance my working relationships with my corporate partners. I often struggled to ‘self-regulate’ as my propensity was to get emotionally charged… we engaged in an exercise to gather feedback in the form of an executive presence assessment … by being aware of my motivations and impact on others, I was able to make great strides toward being a better partner; and perspective on what actually matters.  I found out that relationships were not simply a necessary component to my success, but actually the reason for my success”

Her leadership and wealth of experience came through in her coaching; her encouragement and support boosted my self confidence. Shirley asked insightful questions which helped me focus on what was important to me. She willingly shared her knowledge, and challenged me to consider other perspectives. I highly recommend her”

Easy to work with

She did not strictly follow a rule book that she deemed was right for me – she allowed me to set the guardrails and define my own process and goals. While she was structured in her approach, her methods were invisible to me and instead woven into the fabric of what I wanted to achieve”
