“I had the pleasure and privilege to have Enza as my coach over a course of six months. During this period, I found Enza to be an active, compassionate, and, most of all, patient listener. She has a calm ability for reflecting back thought-provoking questions. Her unique skills as a coach lead me to come to answers that I would not have been able to come to on my own. Enza also provided me with the confidence to activate my true potential and face challenges at work and in my personal life head on. She also provided the motivation and validation that I needed to continue to map out and refine my life plan for the years ahead. If you are looking for a honest and empathetic coach, I would recommend Enza. without any hesitation. ”
“I had the good fortune of having been a colleague with Enza and knew she had a wealth of information and experience that I could tap into as I attempted to pivot my career and figure out how to reinvent myself. I was unhappy having worked for different companies and throughout our sessions Enza helped to analyze my past behaviours and choices which I was not even aware of. We talked by phone and she challenged me at the end of our calls to try something new to expand my horizons. I would definitely recommend her if you are planning to do a career change or to simply navigate complex political work relationships as her senior role within a large organization can help you out. ”
“Enza was a great coach! I was new to personal coaching and Enza was excellent at guiding me through the process and helping me establish my goals. Enza is a highly experienced executive but she is also kind and down-to-earth. At the time when I worked with Enza, I was starting a new job and struggled with finding my place in an established team and affirming my role as a leader. My new position was nowhere near the executive level Enza occupied at the time, but this did not still stop her from understanding my reality and helping me address my challenges. Thank you Enza! ”
