Michele Molitor has worked with a wide array of business professionals and organizations. See some our client testimonials below or read some of our Client Case Studies.
Jonathan DeYoe, Principal DeYoe Wealth Management
“I have known Michele for at least 6 years and have gone to her with personal or business focus challenges throughout that time. She has always been able to:
1. Hear the real issue – this is important, because even as a very goal oriented and driven person, I can fool myself into doing something I want to do instead of doing something I need to do.
2. Provide specific, meaningful guidance – for years I had viewed coaching as sort of squishy and practiced normally by folks who tend towards levitation and less towards practical tools and application – Michele proved this belief wrong.
3. Do all she does with a heart – Michele knows where the edges of your comfort zone are and can help you step beyond them with a process that is simple and easy. That being said, I will warn you, as your comfort zone grows, she will keep challenging you.
For me, this has been a blessing.”
Ellen Kim, Owner Ginger Leaf Floral
“Michele is awesome! I had just launched my floral design business and needed help getting focused on how I should approach my target market. Turns out I needed to take a few steps back and figure out who I really wanted my target market to be. And that involved being clear on my own values, so that I could attract clients who had similar ones. What a novel concept. It’s this kind of holistic approach that I really appreciate about Michele.
She’s also got tons of contacts, and if she doesn’t know the answer to something, she can usually point you in the right direction. She’s kind of a combination of the connector and the maven in Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point” – a natural networker and a great resource for information!”
Sean Brennan, California State Communications Director, GEAR UP
“Michele is an amazing facilitator and collaborator. She is not only a wise and highly organized person but also an inspiring strategist. She is a dedicated and honest facilitator and has the ability to make good, sometimes bold decisions. Self-motivated, careful, detail-oriented and a smart team player that cannot be overestimated. She is intelligent, ambitious and customer focused – a natural born leader. Definitely worth recommending.”
Monique August, MSW Executive Director, Choose College Educational Foundation
“Our company contracted with Nectar Consulting to provide professional development training for our diverse staff. With their training, guidance, and insightful activities, our staff enhanced their ability to communicate with each other as well as with a variety of clients. The trainings enhanced the cohesiveness of our team and helped us establish processes and guidelines for working with each other more effectively.
Specifically, Michele’s guidance enabled us to identify and utilize the talents of each member to produce a more efficient work environment. The strategies and activities she utilized especially proved effective and enhanced the development of our least experienced staff members and those that were new to our field. Her professionalism and follow-through was appreciated. We look forward to working with Nectar Consulting in the future.”

“Michele had the uncanny ability to identify my personal blocks when it came to my business. Once identified, she helped me design a strategy to overcome obstacles that were holding me back. Michele was insightful and expert in communicating ideas to which I had resistance. What more could you want from a business coach? And she is a delightful person to boot. I highly recommend her.”
Howard Ronder, Branding, Creative, Marketing Consultant Creative Director, Working Assets/CREDO Mobile

Through providing clarity around obstacles, Michele has helped enable me to be a more powerful creator, resulting in expanded leadership abilities, confidence and effectiveness.”

I highly recommend her services to help you reach your business goals.”
Kathryn Bing-You, Certified Feng Shui Consultant,Jade Tree Feng Shui

This is what makes Michele effective as a Facilitator of school leadership teams as well. She provides a safe environment for full participation. She asks the probing questions to assist teams in clarifying their goals and next steps. I would recommend Michele Molitor to anyone or team looking to make changes that would improve focus, attitude and productivity.”

Keith Niemann, Director of Extension Human Resources, University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension
“About 18 months ago, we were introduced to Co-Active Coaching by the dynamic team of Michele Molitor, Chris Sansone, and Andy Churgin. This team has since provided three coaching workshops for us at the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension Division. These workshops have touched nearly 70 faculty members. They have introduced coaching to us and have effectively demonstrated, through the workshops, the value coaching can have for Cooperative Extension. Many of the attendees are using coaching in the annual performance evaluation of employees. Several more are using the skills they learned from this team in their personal life. This experience caused us to commit to institutionalizing coaching in Cooperative Extension. Coaching will become part of our culture because of the enthusiasm and passion this team exhibited. Cooperative Extension in Nebraska will be indebted to Michele, Chris, and Andy for exposing us to a wonderful life work tool.”
Robyn Fisher, President, RT Fisher Educational Enterprises
“Michele is by far the very best consultant that I have had the pleasure of working with. Really, I have worked with and hired a lot of folks who claim to know what their doing and produce professional work products, who have been so disappointing. Thank you for you consistent professionalism, it is really refreshing and appreciated.”
Bernida Reagan, Vice President of Community Relations, Merriwether & Williams Insurance Services
“I have been working with Michele for a year and a half now, and our work has resulted in very significant changes in my life. Her coaching has helped me with many issues in both my career, and personal and spiritual life. The self-discovery work we do helps me to make decisions every day that result in a healthier, more productive, more rewarding lifestyle. She makes a huge difference in the quality of my life and I am very thankful for the changes she and I have made in me.”
Shariann Tom, Principal, Innerworks Solutions, LLC

We have been very blessed to have Michele affiliated with us and highly recommend her to other organizations who seek her caliber of coaching.”
Alan Baquet, Associate Vice Chancellor, University of Nebraska – Lincoln
“I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the workshop! One participant said it was the best professional development workshop he had ever attended. Another participant said this should be required of all new employees. It doesn’t get any better than that. I had another participant stop me and comment on how great it was. She indicated that people she has interacted with are already applying the skills and tools they learned! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did.”

Thank you!”
Becky Hatt, Owner, Haus Design
“Michele has been a wonderful coach for me. I went to her unhappy with my business situation and she enabled me tap into unknown sources of confidence to move away from a poisonous relationship and make it on my own. She also helped me define my vision for the business and turn it into what I really wanted it to be! For my personal life, she taught me better ways to communicate with my husband and daughter, by getting at the heart of a problem rather than just addressing the symptoms. She also helped me come up with creative ways to find time for myself. Michele is incredibly warm and caring, and it comes through in her coaching. I’ve always felt safe to say whatever I needed to say. I would recommend Michele to anyone facing change (or the need for it) in their lives, be it professional, personal or both.”
Cloteal Thrower Herron, M.Ed., Educator, Coach and Author

She continues to be a supportive and contributing member of the Berkeley Chamber of Commerce.”

“Michele has a very holistic approach to business coaching and consulting. She is very driven to help people reveal, define and refine “purpose” during the coaching process.
The first sentence of the foreword of “Anatomy of the Spirit” by Caroline Myss reads as following:
…”On rare occasions, you may meet a unique person who dramatically alters your perception of the world and yourself.”
I am thankful for all the eye-opening personal and professional development material that you constantly expose me to. I am grateful for you having crossed my path and challenging me to dig deeper, uncovering the hidden ME. Thank you! Thank You! thank You!”
