I believe having an executive coach that understands the direction you want to take your career, can accurately assess your unique skill sets and areas of development, and takes a personal interest in your success, will advance your skills faster and translate into new opportunities. I have worked with Marcel for nearly ten years as a coach as well as a colleague. I have seen her help numerous people identify where they need to put their focus in their development and have witnessed that transformation. Her approaches lead individuals on a journey to self-identification and then teaches them tools and techniques to develop those skills. She is a partner in your development and is committed to helping you achieve your goals. I can say this because I have seen it and I have experienced it firsthand. I recommend Marcel Henderson to help you succeed on your personal development journey.

The qualities I value in a coach include great listening skills, empathy, and an ability to separate facts from assumptions. Marcel has all of these. She uses a thoughtful, measured approach, which helps her coachee to see new possibilities. She seems to have great instincts on when to “push” a little versus when to “pull.” Just as importantly, Marcel has strong business acumen, which not only adds an important dimension to her coaching, it also lends credibility to her coaching conversations in the eyes of leaders. Thank you, Marcel!
