I went to Coach Emile's Strengths Coaching last year whilst job-hunting. I wanted a job that will fit my strengths/talents this time as the previous one didn't seem to fit the bill anymore. We had 3 sessions of coaching and she guided me on how to interpret the results from the Strengths Assessment that I took prior our sessions. It was surprising to find out how I was using my supposedly strengths as weaknesses. Coach Emile helped me to understand how I can harness those talents/strengths and avoid using them as weaknesses. I used what I learned from her and found myself sending applications to jobs I've never done before and a couple of months later, I was hired. It was an entirely different job than what my skillset has to offer, but it did fit my strengths and talents perfectly. I have been happily employed since. I would highly recommend subscribing to Coach Emile's Strength Coaching sessions if you want to recalibrate your compass to your true North or up your A-game further.
Analyzing my strengths and knowing exactly how to aim them toward my goals and how to handle my team is the best leadership transformation I've gone through. It's one thing to understand and another to open yourself up to coaching. It's having yourself come up with an alternate solutions but a lot faster.

I sought Coach Therese’s help to improve my relationships. She helped me strengthen my talents, understand my blind spots and also gave tips on how I can improve my least strengths. My communication skills was enhanced since then and my relationships with others had been better than ever. Thank you for your time, Coach, and for being my mentor in building relationships!
Hi Emile! Just wanted to share that "playing to your strengths", or should I say, Strengths with a capital S, is spot on for happiness too. I'm consciously applying it in my group interactions and am feeling very fulfilled. Thanks again for the help! Hope you keep sharing to people about Strengths!
