What people are saying

“Michelle is my coach, partnering with me as I develop my business plan and strategy.  She provides excellent coaching by listening, asking important questions, and making the space I needed to gain clarity, focus, and build my strategic plan. I thought I knew what direction I was headed, but through conversations with Michelle, I realized that I wanted something very different. It feels freeing and satisfying to unlock a better course of action that is far more fulfilling than what I thought I should be doing. Partnering with Michelle set me on a path to greater professional fulfillment.”

“I want to heartily recommend Michelle to anyone who has the courage to name imposter syndrome as a barrier to being the most authentic and effective leader possible. Like so many others, I have also suffered at times in my life of self-doubt and believing I was inadequate and not enough. With the help of others, I was able to realize that my inner dialogue was just a story and I had enormous ability to change that story. I was also fortunate enough to have the privilege to work with Michelle and to be inspired by her own courageous journey to find her true voice and it is incredibly powerful. She’s a great coach, leader, and educator and I know she has and will positively impact many, many lives.”

Michelle’s true passion is the development of leaders, helping them to achieve outcomes as their very best selves. You will not find a more energized and energizing coach to challenge and mentor others in personal and professional growth!”

— Dr. Joan D.

“I worked with Michelle in a leadership collaboration. During our time together, I was impressed by her ability to incorporate self-awareness and insight into true leadership philosophy. I observed her love of “ growing her team “. She was always “ in the moment “ with them during meeting time and had an uncanny sense of “ reading them “. This is a true skill that leaders can leverage in relationship building: it’s a gift. Michelle was consistent and always focused on “ doing the right thing” while navigating organizational politics. A truly important quality that is overlooked at times is the ability to find joy in the journey and ensure there is fun in the work. Michelle by nature, exudes positivity and gratitude. The teams that she led gravitated to this and actually began to model this important piece of leadership. She is and was a pleasure to know and continues to be a work colleague.”

- Christina DeRosa


“I have the pleasure of supporting a dynamic group of nurse leaders responsible for oversight of critical care nursing departments. Establishing a vision, goal and culture is the backbone of an effective and engaged team. This requires an investment with leader development for myself and most importantly those I support.

Over the last five years I’ve had the opportunity to receive leader coaching sessions with Michelle Cabell. Undoubtedly the best professional investment for myself which resulted with increased leadership knowledge, skills, and awareness of how to build an effective team. This directly impacted my ability to increase leader engagement, results management and branding a team that is seen as highly effective within my organization.”
