Sheila has been coaching me as I transition from being a corporate executive to becoming a small business owner. Sheila's coaching has been exceptional and has helped me reflect on my key objectives and the necessary steps I need to take to reach them. While Sheila provokes the thoughts through insightful questions, the key is that she is also a great listener. When engaged in problem-solving, Sheila prods till I exhaust all alternatives. She demonstrates her resiliency and versatility in every conversation. Thanks to Sheila, I have gained strong confidence to navigate a key transition in my professional life successfully.Pritesh
