Coaching on Emotional Intelligence & Leadership Principles

You are unique.

That's why traditional, one-size-fits-all training doesn't cut it.

You need insight based on your role, your style, and your goals.

You need a customized map and an experienced guide that understands the obstacles along the way.

Raise your hand if that

sounds like YOU!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cindy for a few years. During that time, she demonstrated an unparalleled level of authentic care for the employees. Not only does she strive to continually advance her knowledge and skill set as a mentor, coach, and HR professional, but she also takes a deep interest in helping others advance their careers as well. 


On a more personal level, Cindy coached me in both the strategic and tactical aspects of leading a team. Her perspective has helped me create and lead a highly collaborative and successful team. I highly recommend Cindy as an HR professional and personal coach.

Cindy's passion for people and improving our soft skills are critical and translate to any industry. Her approach and demeanor are perfect.

I have known Cindy since ~2014, when Cindy in an HR role was voluntarily and frequently sending mine supervision helpful leadership tips, which added to the bottom line. Recently, I have sent Cindy two "mentees", even though the coaching is confidential, the feedback from the mentees is always positive!

When I first started working with Cindy, I wanted to improve my

communication skills with my employees and fine-tune my decision-making. Over the course of a few months, I started to see myself and my work environment differently and was able to identify methods to improve my performance.

I learned new ways to manage employees and to understand my reactions to circumstances. These are things that will stick with me forever.​

Cindy was easy to work with and focused on my goals. I recommend coaching with Cindy and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Add to that Cindy's coaching prowess, and you have a formidable combination of skills that set her apart from the crowd. She is a leader I would not hesitate to follow.

Over the course of a few sessions, we worked through a process that enabled me to find grounding and confidence to move forward with some very difficult decisions. 

 

Her HR background and coaching experience combined in such a way to bring both facts and encouragement, in perfect measure.  

What stood out to me was her ability to quickly understand the nuances of a very complicated situation, as well as the depth of her empathy. She made me feel sane and heard.  I would highly recommend Cindy as a professional and personal coach.

As I aspire to become a global business leader post my education, I wanted someone with whom I can discuss in detail different people related circumstances I have faced in my 5-year career so far, how I managed them and what I could have done better.

Cindy has a sound understanding of different personality types and leadership principles and helped me explore my own.

 

Further, she has been able to guide me around how to leverage

my own style to gel with different personalities and leadership types.

Cindy is a safe and powerful resource for people who want to 

be the best version of themselves.

 

Cindy coached me during a pivotal moment in my career. I was not confident with speaking up to my management team and needed to learn a way to do this and be “ok” with it.

Cindy coached me through this and it’s had such a positive impact on my career and personal life.
