"Stephanie is very talented, we end up having very free and natural conversations that I don’t have with anyone else. She carefully directs me through my excess thoughts right down to some core values and purposes which I can make leadership decisions from. It is these scheduled sessions where I really get to think about my job, relationships with staff, communication, conflicts, and how to best deal with them. I’m sure you can tell that I find the sessions very valuable."
Supervisor, Vancouver Parks Board
"I first met Stephanie 10 years ago while employed at the City of Vancouver taking leadership courses provided by the City through BCIT. Since that time she became my coach and my career path has developed into a managerial position with first the City of Port Moody and currently with Port Coquitlam.
I believe the skills and confidence I developed through Stephanie’s leadership coaching have provided me with these opportunities. Stephanie has been an integral part of my growth as a manager, a leader and a person. I have learned a lot from her about handling difficult employees, managing my emotions, reducing stress and finding work-life balance.
Stephanie’s ability to adjust, engage and really listen and then ask the right questions is what I feel sets her apart from the rest."
Section Manager, City of Port Coquitlam
