It is truly a challenge to pin-point the greatest impact Cheryl has created in me — where do I start? Within a short period of time, Cheryl went beyond helping me gain clarity on my career path and consistently challenged me to assess circumstances under different lights, enabling me to become a more happy and optimistic person. The EQi she has introduced me to had a phenomenal impact on both my personal and professional life. It has allowed me to have a more in-depth understanding of self, and to make better choices when interacting with others.
Cheryl’s coaching services were truly a gift. I received coaching sessions with Cheryl and an Emotional Intelligence assessment as a gift from a family member, who wanted to provide every opportunity for success, as I transitioned to a leadership role. Two years since the coaching sessions, and currently in a second leadership role, I apply all that I have learned from Cheryl daily. Cheryl is passionate about her work, dedicated to the coaching process, creative in her approach and intuitively knows how to work with you towards positive change personally and professionally. I would highly recommend her services.
