Working with Shirley over the last few months has really helped me shape who I am in my personal life and who I want to be as a leader. She has pushed me to focus and gain a better understanding of just what it means to be a leader. As long as you are willing to put in the work she is right there to help you along the way. I personally would say she is truly remarkable and there is no cap that can be place on the benefits that working with her will bring to you.

As I have found the case with some of my own clients, from time to time I have found myself disconnected from my business and as a result, de-motivated to do anything other than client work. Any business, including mine, is either growing or declining and if I’m not consistently doing effective things to grow my business, it’s declining. I needed to find the mental energy to identify things to grow my business that didn’t feel like a burden and, then, do them consistently. Shirley Terrell, through her patient and effective questions and exercises, has allowed me to reconnect with my purpose and consistently act with intention to grow my business. She has given me exercises and paradigms that I use to change my state and energy level when the emotional energy isn’t there to do what is important for my business. All this is to say, Shirley is EFFECTIVE at helping me achieve my business goals. And when you strip everything else away, that’s what counts in a coach. I would recommend her to anyone not making the progress they know they can in their life or business.
Shirley is a wonderful coach, who has been helping me grow to a great extent in the past few months. She helps me to have a different perspective and develop in so many ways. Aside from her passion and trustworthiness, the greatest thing about her is her authenticity. The coaching experience with her always makes me feel refreshed and energized, and the changes I am seeing in my life are truly amazing.
I highly recommend Shirley as a coach. In my experience over the last 4 months, being peer coached by Shirley has been a wonderful, eye opening learning experience. Shirley’s insights and perspectives have been very valuable to my growth as a coach. She recognizes strengths and knows how to fine tune areas of development so your challenges become opportunities!

I have been working with Shirley since November of 2017. The growth that I have gained in such a short period of time with her assistance is unfathomable. Her coaching style is creative, trustworthy, and effective – leaving you an enduring valuable lesson or new understanding after every coaching session. The wisdom she brings to her lessons is unique. She not only asks questions, but the right kind of questions. Instead of feeling like an interrogation she is able to create a dynamic flow between us where we both contribute. She helps me to gain a different perspective, envision new solutions, and even develop ways for me to question myself for future situations while still pulling on my strengths. The way she is able to recognize my stories and feelings and then use that to help shift my thinking beyond them to open up new possibilities is amazing. Having someone see your weaknesses (real or perceived) takes real trust. With Shirley’s abilities to help me grow, I am willing to continue to share and build this trust with one of the most invaluable coaches I know.
Shirley has been coaching me since November 2017 and in all honesty rather than telling you how awesome she is, and how much she has supported me in the changes that are happening in my life and how I always walk away with a big smile on my face knowing I am going to achieve results, book a session and see for yourself! You wont be sorry!

Shirley brings a level of compassion and care to her work as a leadership coach that makes it easy and natural to get right down to the issues that need to be addressed. She is a deep listener. Her comments and suggestions are always thoughtful, wise, and respectful. I feel certain Shirley has been an intuitive mentor and guide for many, many people in her life as this work fits her personality so well. Because she is so committed to excellence, she has received a high level of training to be able to offer the guidance and feedback that is based on current research. Our community is very fortunate to have her expertise. She has helped me tremendously and I know she will do the same for many other executive directors.
