Typical one-to-one executive coaching engagements are a six to twelve month commitment. Coaching involves an initial intake session/assessment with the coaching client as well as the company sponsor (e.g. human resources or client’s manager/director) to determine the goals of coaching and to set out the ways in which the coaching client and Natalie will work together most effectively.
Coaching sessions are usually scheduled bi-weekly at the convenience of the coaching client. Regular check-in appointments with the company sponsor and the coaching client are scheduled to ensure that the coaching goals are being met.
“If you are looking for a coach, teacher or facilitator to open your mind to the possibilities, engage your creativity and inspire you to action, Natalie is your professional. Natalie has the trifecta of strong business acumen + excellent coaching skills + a knowledge base in positive psychology. This means that she’s pragmatic, knows the difference between telling, teaching and asking, and she’s got a theory base that informs her practice so she’s not just guessing. As much as people and organizations need help to push off of status quo, they also need to know that the time and money they invest will yield a strong return-on-investment. In a sea of practitioners Natalie stands out as a wise investment who, as an added value, is incredibly good fun to work with”.

Her knowledge, creativity and empathy helped me appropriately and directly address critical business issues with confidence and clarity. She is warm and engaging – a great storyteller who adeptly weaves scientific research with deep practical experience. I am truly grateful for my sessions with her. I highly recommend Natalie as a coach and I will definitely hire her again!”

“I invited Natalie to visit my Executive Coaching course at York University as a guest speaker. I felt that her coaching experiences would be valuable to share with my students. Natalie’s visit was engaging, honest and insightful and I could tell that she had given serious thought into the preparation of her session. Her visit was thoroughly enjoyed by the class and when I asked them “Should I invite Natalie back in future as a speaker?” the class shouted back with a unanimous YES! I would recommend Natalie for any coaching, training or speaking engagement, as she is highly engaging and “real”. I will definitely be inviting Natalie back for additional guest speaking spots in future.”.
