"Monique’s unique combination of being a humanist and a scientist literally ignites her. Working with her was like surfing along her side on her 'yes-wave.' Her zest is contagious, while at the same time beautifully grounded in wisdom.” —Konstantina (Constadina) Stathopoulou, Strengths-based Team Coach


"I heard Monique speak at a conference for HR professionals. I had been reading her articles for years, so was delighted to have a chance to see her in person. She is a very engaging speaker. She shared interesting research on sustainable careers and made a strong case for why it’s important to support sustainable careers in organizations. She also gave concrete advice on how to do it. We did an interactive exercise that gave us all a chance to practice coaching conversations from the perspective of both employees and managers, and to get feedback on how effective we were during those conversations. The discussion was very rich afterwards.

I would definitely recommend Monique if you’re looking for a speaker, a workshop leader, or a coach to work with your company on talent management or leadership development."
