Clients say:

“The coaching and consulting we received proved invaluable to our timely reinvention of our global fulfillment model strategy and metrics. The off-sites with my executive team and extended management team have been remarkably successful. The insights provided by Therese on leadership and thinking ‘out of the box’ are acutely relevant and useful. ”
-Executive Vice President, Supply Chain and Distribution

"Therese is someone you want on your personal board of directors.  She is a natural leader and coach, caring and supportive person.  I have had the pleasure of working with Therese when I was given feedback that I was failing to build effective relationships with the leadership team in my organization at Intuit.  She helped me discover that I needed to take a step back and build the trust of the team before I could effectively execute against my goals.  She helped me stay the course during a difficult time when I was in the process of determining the overall value of the role of my team to the organization.  She helped me win the trust and respect of my peers and stakeholders.  She helped me have the confidence to create, ask for and get a new role in the organization that aligned with my personal and business goals."

"Her passion for developing leadership and people skills goes far beyond what one would expect.  Her ability to listen and allow for self discovery are just some of the amazing talents that she brings to the table.  If you have the chance to work with Therese as a coach or any capacity, your experience will be life changing."

"Therese’s style was a perfect fit for my needs. Her ability to remain accepting, neutral and non-judgmental during the process and her ability to help me discover answers for myself versus providing me with the answers were an asset to my growth."
