I came into Shelley’s Leadership Training program expecting to pick up a few new tools to manage my law firm and team members – but walked away with so much more. The work on my values and personal mission statement were eye opening (and I’ve done a lot of these exercises in the past). I’ve set goals that are both exciting and in line with my priorities, while identifying areas of self care that will help me avoid falling into the trap of overwork. Shelley is a skilled adn intuitive facilitator and a genius at breaking down dry research into practical exercises. She created a safe space for vulnerability and exploration.

The Elevating Performance: Inner Leadership Program took a deep dive into several areas I’ve wanted to work on for years. While challenging to digest, it was so worth the time and mental and emotional energy. I’m walking away with plenty of insights and tangibles to work on for inside and outside of the office.

Megan Bissonette

I truly enjoyed my time with Shelley. Her sessions provoked, inspired, equipped and empowered me in ways I wasn’t expecting. If you are ready to unveil the life you dream of, this course will provide you with the roadmap and resources to get you there. You will also gain an incredible tribe of women who will support you along the way.

Truly grateful for the time to dig into personal/ professional well being and development! Thank you doesn’t seem deep enough for how I feel to learn skills on how to conduct a deep dive into a better leader, mom, wife and human.

The Inner Leadership Course is a must for any woman in business. It opens your eyes to so many issues we all face and gives us practical tools to work through them. I hope Dr. Shelley offers more workshops.

Elevating Performance was beyond my expectations and stretched me to think deeply about myself and my connection to others.

Patti Frierson

Strategic Partnership Manager, Times Free Press

Shelley’s Leadership Track on Elevating Performance isn’t just another training – it’s an exercise in innovation. It was the refresh and reset I needed to get in alignment with my core values and big picture goals. Choosing to go deep and far with Shelley and others in the cohort has helped me set a growth trajectory that works for me personally, professionally, and holistically. I highly recommend that teams work with her!
