Dear Yvonne, I learned through your behaviour that we have to be passionate and listen to others. You showed us how to be a "servant leader". You showed us how to come back when things are down. You taught us to care for others no matter how our personalities may clash. You taught me to stay positive and persevere in the face of adversity. You taught me to recognize that as a team player, I am never alone.
Thank You! Hilton (Workshop Attendee)
Dear Yvonne, My fiancé and I really enjoyed participating in the couples' discovery session with you. Your expertise in helping us to learn more about each other's strengths and weaknesses will definitely help to strengthen the foundation of our marriage. The simple and practical tips and suggestions that you offered throughout the discovery session will go a long way in supporting our new marriage. In addition, we also found your tools and techniques intuitive and approachable. It was truly a pleasant and fruitful experience.
Thank you! - Ivan (Relationship Coaching)
Dear Yvonne, I am exceptionally grateful to you for your investment in me. I learned so much about myself during our four month coaching program. Your time, energy and encouragement helped me to take important steps in my life and career that continue to bring health and happiness to me and my family. This journey has not been about "fixing," but about becoming the person I want to be. Knowing myself as I do now, I feel so much at peace.
Thanks so much! - Christiane (Personal Coaching Client)
Under Yvonne's leadership, I grew in confidence and ability. As a first-time supervisor, I had a significant learning curve. Yvonne challenged me to be a better leader, but not without offering the tools and mentorship to empower me along the way. Yvonne breathed new life into our team's projects and activities. She lent her skill and expertise to develop a much needed annual plan and dedicated much time and effort to building us up as fundraisers and team players. I am exceptionally grateful for the opportunity I've had to work with Yvonne.
