 ...training was magnificent...such an impact hired as personal coach

My first introduction to Rene was with a start up company I worked for, that hired her and her team to come in and assist us develop a deeper understanding of what our mission was. The training was magnificent. The level of questions, individual involvement, accountability & follow up was superior to any other training I have ever been thru. Post training, our team thrived. We were communicating better, holding each other accountable, and all on board with a deep passion for what our business purpose was. This training left such an impact that I hired Rene as a personal coach for myself. She didn't hold back. She asks the hard questions, holds you accountable, and opens realizations within yourself that may have been holding you back. All the while Rene is compassionate, powerful, & ultimately creates the space for your true self to emerge. I highly recommend Rene for both business and Personal coaching.  ~ Rosanne Simpson, Director of Sales, UMC

I was able to focus my energies and build the confidence I needed to seek new employment and move through some personal challenges. I highly recommend working with Rene if you feel you're not reaching your potential and need an awesome, positive influence who will help you draw your own conclusions about what is holding you back.
