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 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.
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.
East Tenth Group came highly recommended! During a period of transition, East Tenth gave valuable recommendations, after a thorough assessment, to help our business move forward. Michelle really understands how business works, and uses her strategic insight to best leverage talent and resources. Her recommendations and assistance in implementing change have helped to transform our company’s culture for the better.

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…
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.
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…
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…
