You were one of our better speakers. The best way I can describe it is — you helped me hit the reset button, to keep in mind what’s most important.

Monique Martineau is a fabulous speaker! She was able to masterfully navigate between the range of emotions, while empowering 400 attendees to make wise and informed choices. She is inspiring, humorous, passionate, warm-hearted, and genuine. Monique’s awesome contribution resulted in the most successful event of its kind for OWCF. She has proven to be one of the most valuable ingredients in our recipe for success.

Today was magical!

Judy Winkler, Educator

I’ve known Monique socially for several years and always enjoyed her authenticity, integrity, beauty, kind heart and bright smile. Watching Monique in action took me by surprise. Without ever being heavy handed, shaming or manipulative, she gently and firmly facilitated the task of getting people to pledge money or contribute in other ways (at a fundraiser). Almost everyone contributed on the spot, due in large part to Monique’s natural clarity, grace and magic.

I can’t believe I feel this good, going through something this difficult. It’s because of you, Monique.

Senior Technical Director
San Francisco Bay Area Film Industry

—————

I had results (after the first session) of noticeably lowered stress so I could sleep better, my main goal. It’s had a rippling impact in unexpected ways. I’ve been able to recognize my pattern and move on faster.

Jack Landers, Human Resources Executive

—————

Holy cow…this is profound stuff!

Frank Crnic, Project Executive
Fortune 500 High Tech Company

—————

You’re a touchstone, an anchor that helps me stay focused on the truth––what’s really important in every situation. I process best when dialoging with others; through processing with you, I’ve become more grounded and make more conscious choices. My decisions are made from a place of internal peace and equilibrium, less influenced by stress or fear.

Denise Paccione, President
Marketing Design Group (2010)

Whatever I do for you can never be more than what you have done for me.

I started coaching when on the edge of burnout. During my work with Monique, I had huge insights about how I perceive others and the drive to get it right. Instead of being tied up in knots about my associates and crises, I now manage multiple team-based projects in a more relaxed way. My CIO surprised me when he said I was one of the calmest people he knew, and it was a pleasure to be around me.

I’ve since landed a promotion and enlisted Monique to coach a team member. I continue to receive positive feedback on my development from managers, peers and subordinates…and my wife. Monique is a wise woman. If you’re considering her coaching, it’s probably one of the best things you can do.

J.C., Director, Technology Operations

I’m totally inspired. You’re good!

J.H., Project Manager
Fortune 500 High Tech Company

—————

Monique, you’re a woman ahead of your time. You have no idea how much you’ve helped me and others. I do everything possible to achieve my goals and optimize my chances in every way. I have a strong contingency plan. Then I let go. I’m more curious than attached now. I’m like Switzerland, which ever way it goes, it’s okay. Plan B will always be there!

Jennifer Alexander, Program Manager
Fortune 500 High Tech Company

—————

For a year and a half, Monique coached me through closing my business in Silicon Valley, moving to Maui (my dream), and developing a new career there. On the personal front, she helps me sort out relationship issues and how to be happier overall. The coaching sessions always put me in a better place.

Rick Christensen, Entrepreneur

—————

The techniques Monique taught me, to sit with the issues that didn’t feel right and to understand if they came from my ego or a point of wisdom, helped immensely in freeing myself of blame spots and in finding tangible solutions to problems. Ultimately, what I learnt was that life is about focusing on the path that feels right and that you know is right because the answer comes from within you. I learnt that there are ways of being that enable that honesty.

This client made a significant transformation in only four months. In the end, she said, “I love you, Monique.” It just doesn’t get much better than that!

—————

Monique is the perfect coach for me. She not only practices what she preaches, she embodies it. She knows when to listen and when to share her insight to help move me forward. She’s helped me achieve my objectives: create space for myself in my life, resolve staff conflict, improve focus and productivity, and increase contentment. I have the greatest respect and admiration for Monique and her professional abilities, and recommend her to colleagues and friends.

Denise Paccione, President
Marketing Design Group (2003)

—————

I’ve become a more effective, empowered manager with Monique’s coaching and continue to build on what we began. I’ve developed new systems to become consistently more proactive and able to justify my decisions to my director. His expectations are clearer to me, which means I can be more responsive.

My communications have improved with my team and my director. I use the coaching style of asking questions before giving my perspective. When I listen more, we arrive at better solutions based on the new information.

My stress is lower. I’m more relaxed and confident having accepted where I am currently. Not only am I more focused and prioritize better, but I stop during my day to meditate and think. I’m not so much on the run as I was. I’ve tuned in to why I react a certain way. It’s good to understand what’s running me. Then I feel empowered to change.

Enrique Pasos, Applications Support Manager
Heald College

—————

The results we have seen in individual members of our management team speaks volumes about the success of her approach.

Kelly Tanner Jones, Corporate Director, Training/OD
Heald College

—————

My time with Monique set me on a path to transforming my life. Her intuitive and knowledgeable insights truly inspired me, and her kindly and patient manner made it so enjoyable. I feel she taught me how to love and understand myself better, and how to extend this love to those around me, on a daily basis.

Monique Martineau has been wonderful. I got so much more out of the program then I ever expected…I have learned to listen to my internal awareness… Monique helped guide me through a process, so I was able to obtain my goals. I could not have picked a better coach. Thank you so much!

—————

My coach Monique was very open minded…to all diverse levels of stress management and listened carefully to my plans. She did not criticize my failures, but instead asked me how was I going to proceed—making me feel like I just needed to get up and dust myself off for the continued battle. She just had a positive mood and spirit about her.

—————

Monique Martineau’s coaching style was key to my success with this program. She drew out of me in a gentle way all those things I had been trying to schedule into my life for wellness. Monique is a definite asset to this program. This program has a ripple effect…I can now apply coaching principles that I learned from Monique to help family and friends focus on important goals…Thank you for this program and for hiring such an excellent coach!!!

—————

The most important thing I believe is she gave me the inspiration and willingness to try different things and keep experimenting with what works best for me. Furthermore, it allows me be more successful with my career and my job. Monique is great person and exceptional coach.
