Testimonials

Lesley is a fantastic coach. She uses her C-suite expertise and her wide coaching experience to provide specific advice in a clear way. She helps me understand my company’s internal politics and how to navigate successfully through it. She puts light on solutions that I wish someone would have shared with me earlier, to get the best in any situation. I appreciated a lot the truly personalized coaching style not only during the meetings but also between sessions with materials to read or watch. Through my several months of coaching, I discovered and trained on new soft skills to positively impact my professional and personal life. 

Global Leader in the Biotech industry

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.

Dave Roy, President, Natsco

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.
