Words cannot do justice to the contribution Michelle made to me, my management team, and our organization during a time of significant transition and evolution. The result of her guidance was tangible in everything from the positive shift in our culture to our bottom line. Michelle is professional, compassionate, and passionate about people.
Professional, responsive, and dedicated are the words that describe our interactions with Michelle. She has the ability to motivate and lead teams with seamless execution. We always knew where we stood with Michelle. Her commitment, knowledge of a particular industry and focus on acquiring and developing top talent for an organization are the reasons for her success.
Throughout my professional career, I have been fortunate enough to receive executive coaching on a few occasions. My time with Michelle was by far the most constructive and fruitful, and her coaching came at a critical point in my career when I was seeking real-world, pragmatic guidance to get to the next level of senior management at my organization. Michelle’s style of executive coaching is extremely productive and immediately applicable because she draws on one’s strengths and the reali…
Michelle is a savvy business-minded senior leader – she is also a trusted partner who fosters powerfully productive relationships. We quickly built rapport, and with her leadership, deployed strategies that generated process efficiencies and re-positioned the HR group as true business partners. We became a proactive group that contributes to the overall success of the business.
Michelle was instrumental in helping me work through a career transition within my industry. She lends a wealth of corporate human resources and executive coaching experience to an organized and thoughtful process that delivers results. I appreciated the fact that Michelle didn’t prolong the process (as many tend to do) by entertaining every thought or idea that I had – she really honed in on the specifics of what I said my goals where and made sure we narrowed the focus to arrive at a…
With Michelle Tenzyk’s coaching, I was able to realize the difference between acting like a senior executive and “being” a senior executive. My goal in working with Michele was to understand how to better carry the weight of my title. However, I did not want to lose my strong ability to connect with co-workers on every level. Michelle was very good at pointing out small changes I could make in my physical actions as well as my mental state. The exercises she provided were very simple t…
We engaged Michelle Tenzyk and East Tenth Group for an overall HR assessment of our growing, 70-person company. She was professional, organized, and discrete in her dealings with our employees. She provided great insights and recommendations in her thorough, well-written report. Her work was timely and cost-effective for the value provided.
Michelle and I have worked closely on a number of coaching assignments. Each one has been different, but in every case we have seen real changes in the employee and those changes have led to business success and bottom line results. In one case, our senior leader was clearly humoring us – going along for coaching, but thinking it would probably be a waste of time. However, we could see that if the senior leader did not expand his skills, he would not be able to succeed in a new and important r…
Michelle is a creative HR/business consultant with strong intellectual capabilities and the utmost integrity. She is pragmatic, open minded and has a keen eye for talent. Her thinking is expansive and nimble and her communications skills are outstanding. To me, she was an invaluable partner, conveying critical information that offered clarity on organizational issues and insights about the company culture.
Through East Tenth Group, Michelle was able to quickly assess our situation and provide advice to me and the senior leadership team as we planned and proceeded with layoffs and other cost-cutting measures. Michelle was calm and compassionate and ensured that our primary objective of treating our staff with dignity throughout the process was preserved.
