Michelle’s insights and guidance provided me with strategies to deal with the uncertainties and challenges that arose from the major organisational change. Michelle’s experience in organisational development shone through as she was able to navigate through some difficult people issues and offer practical solutions. I felt energised and very positive after each coaching session.”
