I loved working with Colleen. We always had a laugh and I always left each conversation with at least one insight. A valuable use of my time! The biggest thing I learned during my coaching with Colleen was to trust myself, In fact, I was able to turn down other offers I may have accepted in the past out of fear or not believing in myself, to “stay the course” and to get offered an even bigger role – my dream one – as Director of Product Recruiting. I am so glad I learned to believe in my own value so that I could hold out for what I truly wanted and deserved.

Dear Colleen, As I look back, the aspect of my work that I loved the most was working with people and you are one of them. You will probably never know how much I have learned and been inspired over the months. How I loved the conversations we had and the ideas we shared. Our exchanges reinforced my strong belief that each of us can evolve, be a better version of oneself and help to contribute to a better place.

Colleen, I wanted to let you know that I just found out I passed my promotion review! it really is an important confirmation of the organization’s confidence in me and recognition that I have the potential to do more.

I’ve had a lot of good feedback from management and requests to apply for various posts ….Thanks so much to you for your support this past year and the encouragement.

I feel very lucky to have had your time and coaching – our discussions always made me see things from a different perspective and made me really sort through my own priorities and perceptions. I hope I’ll be able to pass some of that wisdom on! Thanks again to you and best wishes.

Even after several years, I am still referencing the coaching Colleen and I did together. It has spring-boarded me into a new mindset. Since then, I have used the “Brand of Pam” (the greatest version of me: all my talents and competencies) to land a whole new role at a new company – a professional situation which is beyond anything I could hope for in a working environment. And, getting rid of the old thinking feels wonderful!

When I heard Colleen’s coaching goal for me – ‘seeing my own magnificence’ – I balked: what had I signed up for? But, through the process, I was able to recognize Colleen’s approach was unique and valuable toward identifying and expressing my unique vision in founding Vireo Advisers. I took a gamble on coaching with Colleen, and it was a positive and worthwhile learning experience. Very much worth carving this time out for myself!

Colleen, I just read your newest blog today in my email on Transformational Leadership. Thank you so much for writing about this! I have finally found a description of the leadership style that best suits me and know how to move forward without comparing myself to other leaders and how they lead.

I love your tips and will be sharing your link with others. I like the idea of BOLDLY changing the way one conversation at a time. I was so inspired that my BOLD move was to tackle a new challenge and accept an opportunity at a different company back in March. You are an inspiration for many and I truly appreciate the work that you and your team do!I love your tips and will be sharing your link with others.

We [at Triangle Human Resource Association] were delighted with Colleen’s presentation ‘Setting Boundaries to Spring Forward: the Role of Balance in Your Professional Success’. Not only did Colleen put forward an innovative approach to fulfillment and productivity, but her presentation also engendered a very lively and engaging discussion among all of the participants. We learned a lot and enjoyed ourselves at the same time. Colleen comes with our high recommendation!

Colleen came and spoke at the Women in Business luncheon in Wilmington, NC. Her talk, “Gaining a Seat at the Table: Expanding your Visibility and Influence” was well received and a great addition our speaker series. She comes highly recommended.

Thank you for an amazing session on the ‘Six Emotions That Shape Leaders’. I was most impressed with your presentation skills as well as the message. I have surely learned a lot & know these new skills will be a bigger help in the near future. For once, I was able to stay focused and walk away with the most important lessons for the corporate world.
