Testimonials and Reviews
Lesley is one of the rare people who genuinely treats everyone equally. Her non-judgmental and compassionate traits create a space and environment where participants can grow and build their confidence while exposing their vulnerability. She has more love for each individual than the individuals themselves. I have been to many seminars throughout my professional career but rarely have I found someone who is capable of genuinely accepting and making everyone feel special.
Lesley brought tremendous energy and expertise to this training. Thank you for tailoring the content to make it relevant!
Hello! My team vividly remember this day of "investing in them" and by popular demand, want you back. Best Wishes.
Working with Lesley was one of the best choices I made! She helped guide me to get clear on what I REALLY wanted, see how my values supported that, and WHY certain things were triggering me. Now, I am able to be more accountable - the triggers in my life haven’t changed, but the way I react to them has immensely, and that has made a world of difference.
WOW! Lesley overflowed joy, fun, acceptance, expertise, confidence, and love. She was such a delight and had a commanding, knowledgeable presence. She put our class at ease and I felt that she was truly invested in our success. She blew me away.
I had been staging my staff for significant strategic change but needed to make sure they understood the urgency of the matter. Lesley’s presentation was dead on. Her energy and message had a direct impact on my team. Having an outsider explore the value and uncomfortableness of change truly made all the difference. I highly recommend Lesley!
‘I can’t say enough good things about Lesley. She was the perfect combination of knowledge and fun. She clearly knows the training material and how to help her students relate to it. She was easy to approach and so supportive of the group members. She was also hilarious! Which definitely is a bonus when one is sitting in a training for that large amount of time. It’s evident she is an awesome coach. Very inspiring!!!’
‘I loved Lesley! She was a phenomenal trainer, offering deep insight and clearly demonstrating her expertise with each mini-presentation, as well as when answering questions. Her boundless energy and her obvious devotion to iPEC’s mission and to her students’ development created an environment of trust, connection, and learning. Her personal experiences were also enormously compelling and brought all of the concepts to life.’

'[I want] more sessions!'
‘I can’t express enough how wonderful Lesley was during our MOD 1 class. Truly, in every way, she was magnificent. She has a way of connecting with each person no matter how diverse. She is funny, warm, knowledgeable, experienced and energized. She exudes what it means to be an IPEC coach and with every moment in her presence I can feel her love for her job and her life. I am grateful and honored she was my MOD 1 teacher.’
‘Lesley does not ask of us anything that she does not emulate or model herself. She is transparent and real, which allows us to give ourselves fully to the training.’
‘Lesley is an amazing teacher, leader and coach. She captures and owns a room from the second she steps in the door. I have learned a lot about coaching and about life from this amazing woman. I am so impressed!!!’
‘Lesley was amazing!! She brought high energy every day, was deeply knowledgeable about every facet of the curriculum, and had wonderful examples from her own practice and her own life. She used humor in so many ways to make the days fun and engaging and to help build report between herself and the students as well as among the students.’

What have you learned about yourself through the coaching experience?
‘That I need to take more time for reflection. I get too caught up in the daily “noise” and am not spending enough time evaluating my choices and my journey. This opportunity prompted me to pause and think about my journey and where I ultimately want to be heading. And it made me realize that it is healthier for me if I do this more frequently.’
‘I have learned that my instincts regarding how to manage my team are correct. I often feel timid in moving in certain directions because I don’t have a management template from which to draw. But in talking through my ideas, motivations, and goals with Lesley, I found the confidence to be bold.’
‘I really liked that the sessions did not feel scripted and that we genuinely talked through the situations. This was a great experience.’
How was your coaching experience helpful?
‘I am BEYOND grateful for the space that Lesley set since that allowed me to fully show up at an exceptionally difficult personal time for me. Thank you so very much!’
‘My coaching sessions were exactly what I needed. I can’t think of anything that might have improved them.’
‘I must reiterate how helpful my coaching sessions with Lesley were. The whole program is, I think, an essential tool for managers, and Lesley made the conversation fun, casual, but no less serious when it came to working out solutions to problems. She walked me through some calming visualizations that were really about short-term goal-setting in service of reaching a place of professional and personal tranquility. I’m truly grateful for her attentiveness, spirit, and empathy.’
