Meet Michele

I am passionate about what I do because I love watching the “aha” moments that occur when clients I am working with have that realization that the conversation they’re working on suddenly seems doable! It’s amazing to witness the transformation from “This situation seems impossible”, to “Wow! This feels so much more manageable”!

For over 30 years, I have worked with professionals to help them manage their most difficult conversations. Through helping to develop others and myself, I have learned the skills, tools, behaviors, and mindset necessary to move through life with the courage and confidence to have meaningful, challenging conversations.

I am honored to collaborate with you so that you, too, can have the courageous, honest, intentional conversations you need to have in your own life with colleagues, supervisors, clients, family, and friends.
