We’re delighted to kick-off our first Vlog of 2023 by introducing iCoach grad, Michelle Tenzyk, a great example of an exceptional executive coach.
We spoke with Michelle as 2022 was winding down. She shared her experience going through iCoach many years ago. Since then, Michelle has not only built her consulting practice, www.EastTenthGroup.com, but she has gained a reputation as a sought-after leadership coach, who coaches CEOs and other members of executive teams.
In addition to having a gift for coaching, Michelle has built her practice by having a blue-collar work ethic. Early in coaching career, she was willing to take on any coaching assignment, paid or not. Her grit and talent opened the door to a multitude of engagements. As we’ve seen with other iCoach graduates, gaining competence through having accomplished multiple coaching assignments builds a coach’s confidence. Michelle has continued to find her voice by trusting her intuition in being direct with Clients. In the last five years, Michelle has found herself on the short list of executive coaches referred to coach CEOs at mid-market companies, both public and private.
Along the way, Michelle serves an excellent model as a coach. She talks about how she finds executive coaching supervision invaluable in helping hone her craft. She serves on the board of an organization that advocates for people with mental health challenges. As someone who has “come out” as having experienced some of these same challenges, Michelle’s advocacy serves as a courageous example. Although Michelle is very much one of a kind, she is the type of coach and leader that we have attracted to our iCoach program every year since we started in 2004. We plan to continue to introduce them to you through 2023 in these brief video interviews.
Speaking of our iCoach Global program, we’d like to pivot to invite potential exceptional coach candidates to apply to our program either this year- where they may face a waiting list, or for 2024.
