WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
East Tenth Group understands what your organization needs as well as what it is ready for. I have had the pleasure of working with her and her team twice and have been impressed both times by her ability to gain trust and provide meaningful, insightful and actionable advice which was truly remarkable.
We engaged East Tenth Group for an overall HR assessment of our growing, 70-person company. Professional, organized, and discrete in their dealings with our employees, they provided great insights and recommendations in a thorough, well-written report. Their work was timely and cost-effective for the value provided.
As CFO, I have the responsibility but not the knowledge to operate a best in class HR organization. East Tenth Group was very thorough and efficient in assessing our strengths and weaknesses, put together a plain language action plan and appropriately followed-up to insure we were successful. I could not have achieved HR performance improvements without them.
East Tenth Group’s work with our organization was true to their promise that they provide immediately actionable advice. Michelle introduced me to the topic of executive presence, and which she presented at our internal conference on executive presence. It was highly impactful to attendees—months later individuals are still referencing the advice. I’ve also noticed the change in many individual’s behaviors related to presence. Michelle and her team can make a real difference immediately in any organization they work with. I highly recommend her.
Words cannot do justice to the contribution East Tenth Group made to me, my management team, and our organization during a time of significant transition and business evolution. Their impact was felt in everything from recruiting and on boarding a new senior management team, to architecting a new performance management system, bringing in executive coaching for top management, and driving middle management leadership training. The result of their guidance was tangible in everything from the positive shift in our culture to our bottom line.
While in the role of HR head for Bunge Global Markets, I brought Michelle in to conduct an entire HR assessment for the global division. Upon reviewing Michelle’s findings, we implemented many HR operations processes with excellent results. Michelle’s knowledge of the big picture from a business and HR perspective and her attention to detail proved to be a valuable contribution. She interacted very well with the team and helped move the HR process in a very positive direction.
Michelle has served as my professional mentor and coach for the last two years. She has been and is still such an influential person in my professional development whether it be guiding me through organizational change, job loss or starting my own business, Michelle has been a positive guiding force propelling me forward. Without her expertise, compassion and honesty, I would not be the successful entrepreneur I am today. I highly recommend her services and expertise.
Before partnering with East Tenth Group, I was a Senior Executive who quite frankly was not sure what that meant. I had made a career change from working in an advertising agency to working for an advertising trade association. In an agency, your title clearly defines your responsibilities. I found it difficult to identify the same distinctions in the trade association world. And thus, it fell upon me to figure out how to be a Senior Executive. My goal in working with Michelle 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 to incorporate into my daily life. They quickly became part of my id, and thus something I didn’t even have to think about. The most significant change has been the realization and actualization of my role as a Senior Executive. Michelle Tenzyk literally helped me understand that the title, job and organization are inconsequential. Now, even if I am just mowing the lawn on the weekend, I am a Senior Executive….who just happens to be pulling weeds at this point in time. I highly recommend East Tenth Group to anyone interested in improving job performance, and state of mind. With Michelle Tenzyk’s coaching, I was able to realize the difference between acting like a Senior Exec and “BEING” a Senior Exec.
