Working together with Clare as my coach I have more - more clarity of thought, more focus on what I want - in my work and in my personal life, and more peace and happiness in my heart. Like a sports coach who guides and encourages an athlete to be at her best while reaching her goals, Clare gently urges me with careful reflective questions so that I feel at my best. Our work together shines an awareness on my strengths, so that I can reach success.
It was a pleasure working with Clare. She brought creativity and structure to a difficult ideation/brainstorming session that I wanted to have with the team internally. She led the session really well, making sure all the voices are heard without disrupting the flow. Her business ethics and communication also made it very easy to work with her. I would not hesitate to hire her again for such initiatives.
It has been a pleasure to work with Clare in a variety of capacities for almost twenty years. In all of our working partnerships (employee, client, colleague, facilitator and consultant) Clare has demonstrated the unique ability to align a large group of individuals to a common cause. Her professionalism, communication skills, leadership and patience give her the skills required to manage a room, listen to all voices and build a consensus. In our most recent collaborations, Clare’s ability to mix the tools of Lean and Six Sigma with her positive reinforcement to help the team achieve their goals for the session were impressive. On top of all that she is genuinely one of the nicest people in the world. I would highly recommend Clare to improve your business results and maximize your team’s effectiveness.
Clare provided an informative and engaging presentation to the members of the American Society for Quality on how to increase employee buy-in and motivation to improve business outcomes. The techniques learned also enable career management and satisfaction. We will invite Clare to join us again in the near future.
Clare brings an incredible amount of substance to the table in an area where one could simply spin the rhetoric of lean thinking and operational improvement strategies. Instead, Clare rolls her sleeves up and methodically deconstructs the operation to the micro detail level while always maintaining a connection to the big picture and overall objectives. She gets at root cause to waste issues and involves the team in coming up with real solutions. She then maintains a connection even after she leaves to ensure that managers and team members alike are continuing to move forward and check/adjust the action plan as required. It’s also quite obvious (and refreshing) that conscious effort to ensure her services are undeniably value-added. She really cares. She does a great service to consultants in general, where often times we pay top dollar for ‘expert’ consultation services only to be given lecture on lofty principles without any real substance in the form of the application of those principles to the complex issue at hand. In short she delivers real results.
Clare Monteau is passionate about results, optimistic about solving challenges, and is an engaging and thoughtful facilitator. She is easy to work with and her motto is how can we make it easy for the client? Clare is that rare scientist with excellent people skills. I highly recommend her as a consultant and trainer.
I just had my coaching call today and within the first 2 minutes I had my first of many aha moments. She is amazing to work with and guided me safely through the steps I need to take to get my business back to 150%.
Thank you Clare, you are amazing. I am looking forward to our next call.
