Believing that everyone has the power to achieve his or her full potential, Michelle specializes in coaching men and women in leadership positions. For people who are identified as high potential leaders, Michelle helps them to lean into new responsibilities while maintaining balance and a clear view of their goals: consciously creating what they want the future to be. Michelle coaches leaders in humanitarian organizations such as The United Nations and UNICEF who are struggling with human rights violations and volatile political situations. She coaches them to identify strong values and to be clear about their life’s mission. Michelle also loves coaching small business leaders who are sometimes overwhelmed with their choices and uncertain of a direction that is right for them. The bottom line, is that she is passionate about working alongside people who are exploring new directions and are willing to lean into things that can sometimes feel a bit uncomfortable in order to grow and become stronger leaders.
Michelle has been coaching people throughout her entire career. She began her working life as a professional photographer, documenting events and crafting the images that people wanted to convey about themselves. In this process, she coached people to get in touch with who they wanted to be in the world. In her documentary work, she saw strong examples of leadership styles that worked well and others that didn’t at all. Inspired by her observations of unrealized potential in the people she often photographed, she began to wonder what a better use of her observations would be. Michelle always saw the potential in the people she photographed and this led her to become a certified professional coach with a focus on conscious leadership.
