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…
Having Michelle come in was the best thing we could have done – she put some basic practices in motion that turned our HR department into a well-oiled machine. Michelle was an invaluable resource at a time when we needed senior level HR guidance. She expertly determines the areas of greatest need for improvement, and executes resolutions that best fit a company’s unique needs and priorities.
Michelle is one of the most insightful, passionate and talented professionals in human resources today. She unravels the most complex business issues; she provides the most thoughtful and spot-on recommendations. She can transform an organization with her solutions. Any company or individual interested in obtaining the highest quality guidance should look no further than East Tenth Group.
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.
Prior to meeting Michelle through my organization, I felt overwhelmed with my job responsibilities and workload – spending many long hours at the office and no balance between my work and personal life. Well, after 3 months of coaching by Michelle, I am a new person – both at work and in my personal life. I am receiving encouraging feedback from colleagues. I am spending precious time with my family and friends, too.Michelle guided me through a process that (at times) was emotionally o…
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.
As a mid- level career Director at a large Pharmaceutical company I felt I had the ability to advance into more strategic roles. Although I was identified as someone with that “potential” it was clear that there were some behaviors preventing me from advancing to those type of positions. After speaking with several executive coaches I retained Michelle. She quickly created an atmosphere of trust and partnership that enabled us to identify the key behaviors that were preventing me from atta…
Michelle is grounded in the business of business – she understands the financial implications and works well to provide practical solutions. She was instrumental in assisting the management of the agency to reinvigorate the company by assessing the talent, helping to attract new and vital talent and also ensuring that HR was a driving force. I would welcome an opportunity to work with her again. I highly recommend her.
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.
