When I was offered the opportunity to function as Project Manager for my company’s ERP Migration Project, I was also handed the keys to drive Organizational Change Management.  Both were new to me, and deeply exciting.  With little to no experience to draw from on Organizational Change,

 

Wendy and I discussed multiple options for support and agreed on Private Coaching. Wendy seamlessly guided me to shape my disconnected ideas into a well-knit conglomerate of content that became my mindfulness-informed change management strategy.

 

The guidance she offered provided me with a clear action plan that felt both achievable and motivating!  I’m truly grateful! My company’s Corporate Headquarters recognized my program and published an article to all its Business Units internationally! I highly recommend both the Dealing with Change program, and Private Coaching with Wendy of The Calm Monkey!

Wendy was my teacher, and one-to-one coach in her Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator Training & Certification program. I had been meditating for several years when I enrolled and found that I had a lot to learn through her course and consider in my meditation journey.
Wendy helped me move my goals of introducing mindfulness in my workplace from an idea to a clear approach as I prepared to meet with my decision-makers. She helped me navigate potential barriers in an organized, research-based, needs-based approach. Her course is well-organized, includes support systems, practical tips for success and managing risks. Upon completion, I felt well-prepared to continue my journey.
Wendy is very kind, knowledgeable, experienced and accessible. This was everything I was looking for. Highly recommend!

Wendy tailors her advice to people's needs.  She is able to provide great insight from her own experiences and her facilitator community.  I appreciated her developmental feedback, which helped me as I lead mindfulness in my job, community, and my side business.  Talking with Wendy was a highlight!
