Michele's coaching has transformed the lives of many leaders, leaving them inspired, energized, and achieving remarkable results in their communities.


Join us to learn about Michele's journey, her coaching expertise, and her mission to help nonprofit leaders thrive while making a difference.


If you’ve chatted with Michele on zoom, you’ll recognize her office as an example in The Complete Guide for Home Office Background Ideas.

(scroll way, way down - a lot of backgrounds were highlighted 🙂)

It's fitting that Michele's background is an example of showcasing ‘Personal Artifacts’ because it clicks with the purpose of Storied Awareness.

Everything you see in Michele's zoom background tells a story and has meaning. And these stories ground her and shape how she shows up in the world.

Stories are powerful. Awareness of the stories we tell ourselves is even more powerful. 

White Papers

Michele loves exploring game-changing questions impacting the nonprofit sector by uncovering 
personal stories that speak to the victories, needs and challenges of leaders like you.  

These white papers bring this research together to provide another avenue for
equipping leaders to meet their challenges head-on and love what they do.

There are not many nonprofit boards of directors that hire an executive director or CEO with the hopes of them leaving within a couple of years. Yet, this is what we see across the sector.


For these new leaders to succeed, we must create an environment for them to thrive.

Effective relationships between nonprofit boards and executive directors are critical to the long-term stability of organizations. Yet, they are often fraught with conflict, resulting in high job turnover. This is expensive, fractures internal and external organizational relationships, creates gaps in institutional knowledge.


Choosing and acting on these four leadership postures can make or break this partnership.
