I would highly recommend Paulette as a coach. I am a lawyer by training and have worked in Canada and abroad, mainly for the public service, in various capacities. I had come to a point in my career/position where I felt like there was no further room or support for growth and advancement. My motivation waned. I also yearned to pursue other long-held interests that I had been unable to explore for various reasons, including family responsibilities. Paulette is a knowledgeable professional who demonstrates a passion for coaching. She is also quite insightful, highly organized, genuinely caring and an empathetic listener. When I would go off track at times, she would effectively remind me of my values, goals and other pertinent information that I had shared during previous sessions to provide me with perspective/the big picture. She guided and shared helpful resources for consideration as opposed to impose her opinions. When I had to prepare for interviews, particularly a recent one that resulted in me securing an amazing job, she made herself available to support me within tight time constraints. Her confidence in my abilities and support  throughout the two years or so that I have known her have been greatly appreciated. Thanks Paulette!end-quote
