TESTIMONIALS

"Michael's coaching was transformative for our organization. He took the time to help me assess critical areas of need and suggested a suite of interventions for implementation along with key people to connect with. Being a CEO can sometimes be lonely and confusing. Mike not only brought his expertise of sector but also brought a level of empathy to the issues that I was facing- it has made all the difference. His influence goes beyond his work with the Unity Charity!"
