Lou was the hit of our conference! Each year we bring in our construction crews to review safety and other programs. As our keynote speaker, Lou held their attention and made them laugh; a tough task with this group. Very pleased and will invite him back.

First phone contact AND subsequent, in-person, one-hour session with Michelle Hannah was outstanding. She is polite, courteous, promptly responsive to your queries, professional, yet friendly, warm, inspiring, and NATURALLY vibrant, positive, and energetic. She is also sincere and authentic - what I truly respect. And she demonstrated her expertise immediately. I was thoroughly impressed. She is excellent at honing in right on my target desires and goals (be these implicit or explicit), and mirrors and articulates well my objectives. She also is very good at obtaining clarity from me on any issues or points that are relevant to my objectives. This indicates to me that she is listening very well, and accurately, and is responsible to not misunderstand or assume/presume what I feel, think, or mean to say. In doing so, I feel that I am clearly heard by her. As such, she recognizes nuances that may either hinder or help me as I proceed forward. Terrific communication skills, and which do not feel forced or mechanical. She's fluid AND precise in how she communicates. In her emphasis on the pragmatic, she quickly, effectively, and clearly breaks down my larger goals into realistic, do-able, non-intimidating chunks. This so that I will have a better chance at experiencing the positive re-inforcement of my having actually completed my step-by-step goals. Instead of feeling bogged down and discouraged, this gets me moving out of 'stuckness' and stagnation. (Getting unstuck is difficult to do on one's own, when it comes to particularly sticky or stubborn issues. Including counter-productive ones that I've been tolerating for too long and to my detriment. So, Ms. Hannah's positive 'shake-up' activates me in the best ways, and in alignment with what is best in me.) In her non-judgmental and compassionate way, Ms. Hannah affected my energy, my outlook, and my confidence immediately and for the better. And she did this without hype or false or artificial means, but in substantive and real ways (and matching what I feel about my true core self). I feel that, with Ms. Hannah, my life situation and desired goals are genuinely validated. Terrific to feel that I have someone in my corner, in a healthy, productive way. Just invaluable. She is also well organized. I was impressed with the introductory worksheets she asked me to fill out, before our first session, and the realistic, do-able homework she gave me to complete before our next session. She understands the importance of positive momentum, as do I. Accordingly, I appreciated her recommendation that I schedule my next session not more than 9-10 days after the first one. I told her ahead of time that that's the kind of accountability I want and need, to keep me on track with my goals at this early stage. In my estimation, Ms. Hannah went above and beyond for my first session. That said, I will not take her generosity of investment for granted. In fact, it's part of what motivates me to meet my goals: valuing her time and my time, and what we put into the work together, as client and coach. As I see it, this is not unlike an athlete who's inspired to do well, not just for herself but in appreciation of her coach's efforts as well. She also works with a partner-coach whose business/finance background will be very helpful to some of my goals as well. But the partner-coach is not involved with my private sessions with Ms. Hannah. Those, I presume, would be separate sessions on an as-needed basis. A great complementary choice for a client to have. The only area of improvement I would suggest, thus far, is that Ms. Hannah provide her office address on her initial intake material, once a client hires her. A simple, practical item of information.

    Meeting Tanaz changed my business, personal life and inner-self for the better in so many ways! She is inspiring, kind-hearted, a wonderful guide and through Tanaz, I've also connected with other amazing people. She is a coach that truly cares about her clients. I've done many one-on-one sessions with her. Each one has been inspiring and extremely well worth the time and investment. If you are thinking about reaching out to her, stop thinking and just do it! You'll be so grateful you did. I know I am. Life since Tanaz is more fun, more clear and more aligned than before. She truly is a special individual put on this planet to do what she's doing and she's great at it!

    I worked with Kate as an executive coach to develop my leadership and communications skills to work with my team. She is an inspirational coach, who has the intuition to guide people through a process and the tools to help the person improve. Kate comes from with an open heart and teaches you how to be true to yourself and lead with positive energy. I took several classes with her through the Equine/Horse session and practiced leading the horse. They are sensitive animals with high instincts and know when you are coming from a place of truth. It was an amazing experience. I learned to stay the course. I would highly recommend her for a one on one coaching or for a corporate event and team building.

    Working with Nathan has been a great experience. He’s a business owner himself and shares what he looks for when he’s interviewing people for his own business. It’s priceless information. What I like about Nathan is that he teaches you how to read and interpret a job description so you can tailor your resume for that job. Instead of just writing the resume himself he gives you the tools you need to write it yourself. That way you can change your resume when needed and helps you become more independent. He’s responsive and encouraging. I really enjoy working with Nathan!

    Don uplifted our sales team and gave them specific ideas they can apply immediately to boost their sales. He did this in a very fun and inspiring way. Loved his stories. He is great to work with and always does more than you expect. How he customized his program just for our group really made the difference. He's a real pro, knows what he's talking about, and has a wonderfully way of connecting with his audience.

    April Fletcher has a natural openness to conversing by listening gently at depth and then sharing ideas infused with her personal experience/knowledge/touch. She waits and listens; listens with care from the beginning to the end until the speaker has clearly finished delivering their thought/question/mind. You can feel her listening. The majority of listeners, without being aware, are often caught with their own concern, and therefore in many situations do not fully engage with the speaker's. I have known April for over ten years; her creative listening and definite communication/teaching skills continue to fascinate and excite me. She always has a fresh vibrant offering that keeps bringing me back to her for more enlightenment. Goh Kurosawa International touring artist / Producer of Brilliant Strings / ComposeLife.com
