“I felt that my experience of sharing my dreams and hopes was well listened to and amazingly understood by Misha. I felt she asked me all the right questions that I didn’t even think about it. Another amazing thing is that she summarized everything at the end of the conversation and she actually remembered every small detail.
Although the concept of a life map is new to me, it is very clear to me through this experience, that this is a great way for me to communicate my ideas with others. The match of the life vision I shared and my life map is unexpectedly perfect! It’s like making a copy of a picture and then hand drawing it separately and when you put them on top of each other, they match perfectly!
I am very pleased with the quality and the proportion of the drawing elements within my life map picture. I feel that everything fits perfectly as if it was a picture taken from a professional camera.
Be open, honest and truthful about what you want in your own life map. It is for you and not to impress anyone else. Use it as a tool to improve your life!”
“I found the coaching to be effective in all aspects. Misha spent a significant amount of time listening and learning about the issues I wanted to work on and put a great deal of effort into creating an extremely useful plan that I will continue to use. Misha is very professional, approachable, and serves as a wonderful role model. Her listening skills are exceptional, as she often picks up on unspoken subtleties and brings them into focus. A great strength of Misha is her ability to maintain focus and to say difficult things that the listener may not want to hear but that are necessary and invaluable for insight leading to change.”

“Her passion and vigor are amazing, and she has a rare gift. I always felt that she listened to me, and her wisdom, energy, keen insight, and graciousness made it a very enriching process. Although challenging, I really enjoyed that the assignments geared to my goals and targeted areas of growth because they were oriented toward freeing me from behaviors and thought processes that hold me back.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Misha in multiple capacities. I previously worked with Misha as a team member at Microsoft. She is a wonderful business partner and coach and has helped to evolve my organization, Sound ConneXions. She’s also a terrific life coach and has helped me to live the life I desire and to be my best self. Misha has a high level of interpersonal competence in all of these capacities. She has keen ability to see the big picture and help to distill clear strategies, objectives and actions needed for reaching intended goals. She is a great strategic partner and I highly recommend her.”

“Misha was instrumental in guiding us through the Organizational Development Process in Nike’s Global Bag Division re-alignment. 6 years later, her powerful storytelling about key success factors and counsel in the conference room are still relevant and I apply them in business and personal interactions frequently.”
