My coaching relationship with Mel began after she served on an interview panel for a job I’d applied for. I was trying to step up to a new level within my team and was unsuccessful. Following this application process I met with Mel weekly for approximately 4 months to work on my self-confidence, long term goals, stress management, and finding ways to integrate my ‘work self’ with my ‘life self’. We met in our office meeting rooms and she had a way of making it feel like a safe space. I was able to trust that everything we discussed would remain within that room. Mel listened to my thoughts and feelings and shared her observations about me in a way that felt supportive and respectful which meant I didn’t feel like I needed to hold back and keep things to myself. I would recommend working with Mel to anyone who feels like they need to make a change in their life or just a little help getting through the day to day.
