"Although I am a senior leader in a technical field, I was actually skeptical at first about how much impact coaching would really have if my coach and I met mostly via video conferencing. I was quickly proven wrong. Manuelle Charbonneau is a savvy and experienced executive coach who was both supportive yet demanding and on task toward my development, so that I could reach the objectives we had agreed on.
I was traveling between four countries over the several months of our engagement. Meeting via high definition video conference from my iPad or my laptop allowed us to keep our work going and to debrief in person, right there and then, particularly when I needed it before or after some sensitive meetings. Our video sessions were actually a sort of "privileged space" to step back out of my hectic days. They also gave me the visual interaction I needed, as two of my goals were to increase my executive presence and to connect with others more personally. My own EVP was invited to three touch-point video conferences as part of the process and to reinforce my progress.
I still value this intense, memorable and personable experience, which had a direct impact on my capabilities as a leader."
