“I have worked with Sheila on two early stage companies during periods of rapid growth and organizational challenges. She is an A+ professional and a great asset and resource for any organization or individual seeking leadership coaching and guidance at the highest level. She is an excellent strategic business thinker. Her high emotional and social intelligence allows her to be extremely effective. Above all, she is someone I consider a trusted executive advisor and coach.” Reece Duca, Chairman of the Board and Founder, GlobalEnglish Corporation & Partner at IGSB

Sheila is a strong business and organizational strategist as well as an incredibly insightful leader in her field. She is so keenly aware of organizational nuances and individual behavior, and has such capacity for empathy, mixed with a truly unique capability to relate to all situations, that her insights are incredibly right on. Sheila and I worked together for several years focusing on building a high performing team, as well as strengthening the management and executive bench. I truly considered Sheila a trusted partner in the success of my organization and turned to her many times, like many of my co-workers, for her advice and guidance. She was always able to target her coaching at the right level for highest impact, and always pushes (“tough love”) for individual breakthroughs. She is one of those great leaders who believe that sharing her experience, coupled with open and honest conversation is the best way to get to a truly effective solution. I hold tremendous value on Sheila’s insights and leadership and am very proud to call her my friend. ” Michelle Haag, VP, Strategy & User Experience LEVEL, A Rosetta Company
