Play to your strengths. Unlock your potential.
I believe that playing to your strengths is the key to unlocking your potential. Coaching accelerates the process. 

Transitions are a way of life

In today’s fast-paced and uncertain world we are in

a constant state of transition.

That doesn't mean we have to cede all control.

Today’s professional averages 5 years in their current job or with their current company. That translates to many major transitions – and countless role shifts, manager changes, and high-stakes situations. Combined with all of the personal transitions that most people experience throughout their lives...

Knowing how to make the most of transitions is key.


Change is the start of something new. Wouldn’t it be nice to look forward to these starts, proactively pursue them at times, and meet them with strength and not fear?


Using structured Co-Active Training coaching tools and Gallup CliftonStrengths as a platform, I help clients know what they value, use their talents to thrive in areas important to them, and feel prepared to make decisions amidst uncertainty and the inevitable changes they will face. 

I work with clients individually or through their companies to create a fulfilling career…
and live a fulfilled life.

Strengths-Based Coaching

Using scientifically proven coaching tools and techniques


Individual Coaching

Defining and reaching goals

I work with you during one-on-one sessions to help identify your talents, navigate change, and make decisions from a place of confidence and strength. I am your unbiased and reliable partner whose only agenda is your agenda; we work to increase your self-awareness, face your challenges, and define what matters to you. Together we create a plan that puts this growth into action to achieve goals and lead a fulfilling life.


Sponsored Professional Development

Investing in employees

I work with corporations and other sponsoring organizations to create professional development programs that include both group and one-on-one sessions. Benefiting both the organization and the individual, employees increase awareness of their unique talents and use them to reach their potential. My hybrid approach results in increased employee engagement, higher productivity, and improved organizational performance.


Team Development

Building effective teams

I help individuals increase awareness of their strengths and learn how to integrate them with their teammates' talents so that the team becomes greater than the sum of its parts.  This professional development program also acts as a team-building activity.  With custom content and interactive exercises, team members develop individually and collectively. These high-functioning teams  innovate, build relationships, align goals, and drive efficiency.


"Ilyse has been a great coach to me throughout the last six months. She is one of the most kind and supportive people who is great at listening and providing feedback to help equip you with the tools you need to deal with whatever situation life throws at you. 


Ilyse starts her coaching experience by finding your strengths, she then uses these strengths to guide all conversations. She has coached me through some tough career scenarios and decisions including how to get myself out there to find great opportunities and how to best present myself. I can’t recommend Ilyse enough!"
