Lesley is highly professional, responsive, and an excellent communicator. She excels at listening, identifies the key issues and follows up with a list of resources to any situation presented to her. She also has extensive knowledge about different industries and opportunities and speaking to her often opens up new perspectives … Her extraordinary communication skills allow her to connect with all kinds of people and to inspire them to do their best. I highly recommend Lesley for anyone seeking coaching for their career and personal development.
Ce qui m’impressionnait chez Lesley, principalement son professionnalisme dans la médiation d’un groupe d’exécutif, la pertinence dans ses interventions et la résolution sans vague d’enjeux critiques…in challenging contexts and rapidly changing environments…Lesley has outstanding skills in making people converge into agreements, passing to actions and creating symbiosis…
As president of a non-profit organization preparing our strategic plan for the next three years, I was looking for someone to facilitate a cross-functional group in a brainstorming session. Lesley was recommended to me and we could not have found a better facilitator! From the planning sessions, where she posed thoughtful and direct questions that helped shape the brainstorming session, to her focused and timely management of the one-day session itself, and the post-session recap discussion, Lesley’s facilitation skills and expertise in strategic planning were evident. She kept us on point, made sure the right discussions were being had, and helped us derive and develop actionable strategic initiatives that we will carry forward into our strategic plan. I highly recommend Lesley to any organization looking to develop a strategic plan or conduct group brainstorming of any tough or challenging issues.
Lesley has the ability to “see the big picture” from a local as well as a global perspective…
Lesley allowed us to clearly define our strategy thanks to her leadership, her dynamic nature and her rigor, but above all, thanks to her keen ability to use the right words at the right time to convey exactly the right message with the appropriate sense of urgency. She brings together ideas that seem scattered or very complex, into a tangible strategy.
Lesley is an excellent professional leadership coach. She has been a great support to clearly understand the transition from an individual contributor position to a leadership role. Lesley uses a personalized approach, accurately tailoring the session content to your goals and always providing you with actionable insight and incentive for further self-reflection and self-coaching. Lesley is also an amazing listener, having the exceptional ability to work through the real work/life cases you bring to the table and provide you with the empowerment and courage to deal with your challenges. I strongly believe these sessions constitute a meaningful step on the exciting journey to a more advanced and impactful leadership. It has a been a great pleasure to work together and I will be happy to continue this collaboration in the future. I highly recommend Lesley to all emerging as well as advanced leaders to support their further personal and professional growth.
Lesley has played a pivotal role in defining the strategy for the organization and keeping the board on track to achieve aggressive goals…
(The) strategic planning sessions always impressed me — Lesley is such a strong leader and incredibly perceptive.
