Real results, real feedback.
Mrs R Marketing
I partnered with Michelle having gone from working for big corporates in busy offices to freelancing. It was quite an adjustment – I had to be more self-driven, had to learn to sell myself more etc. Michelle is a great active listener. She took a lot of my loose threads and put them together to make sense of them and help me find a way forward. On one occasion we used a role play exercise. This really helped me manage a real-life situation. From the coaching experience I increased my self-awareness, learnt how to hold myself to account more and can now see beyond the behaviours of others to their intent.
The most significant improvements are that I have learnt to be myself more with people who may have previously intimidated me so that I can be at my best. This helped me sell in my proposals better. I would recommend Michelle to others. She is an excellent “people” person. I can’t imagine there is a human being on this earth who Michelle would not be able to win over. You feel very relaxed in her company which makes it easier to open-up.
Michelle clearly has great active listening skills and identifies some of the non-saids too.
The time spent in coaching has boosted my ability to achieve my most important goals. Drawing on her depth of experience managing within different organisations, Michelle asks insightful questions, challenges assumptions, and also shares her observations on communication style. The coaching Michelle provided enhanced the quality of my work, accelerated the pace of my planning, and provided a heightened insight into the future impact of these plans once implemented.
I received significant coaching from Michelle at a poignant point in my career as I grew from an HR Assistant to Manager with greater responsibility and accountability. In a short period of time Michelle enabled a drastic growth in my confidence through her collaborative approach, listening to my concerns and helping me find my own solutions to difficult or new situations I found myself dealing with. Michelle was extremely motivating and inspiring through this approach, listening and giving advice that was tailored to me not “off the shelf”. I still regularly find I refer back to our sessions together and think “what would Michelle ask me?” and in considering this question, I am able to find solutions and feel confident in my own decisions. I highly recommend Michelle as a coach to anyone looking to develop in their careers and reach their potential.

Michelle’s personal coaching helped me enormously during a very busy transitional period within my organisation that involved a significant role change personally. Her excellent listening skills, understanding of the challenges and passion for offering practical tools tailored to me were invaluable in helping me transition. By asking the right questions Michelle gave me the time to reflect, focus and prioritise on what was important resulting in my confidence growing making me more effectiveness in the workplace!
Former Site Operations Lead, Mylan Global Respiratory Group
I was fortunate enough to work closely with Michelle for several years in her capacity as Human Resources Lead and as part of the Mylan Global Respiratory Group Leadership Team, during which she consistently demonstrated her extensive range of abilities.
Michelle had excellent communication skills and her ability to listen actively promoted open dialogue in 1:1, team and leadership settings. She was able to quickly identify key pieces of information and confirm mutual understanding in an empathetic way that her colleagues felt totally at ease with. Based on this common understanding of the key issues, Michelle offered focused guidance and suggestions in a supportive and persuasive manner; consistently helping her colleagues to find very positive and relevant outcomes.
Michelle has the skillset to provide high quality career and life coaching at all levels of the business coupled with the experience to provide sound HR advice across a wide range of organizations. It was a real pleasure to work with Michelle, and I wish her every success for the future.
