Let’s Start Taking it Personal
We’ve all heard the saying, “it’s not personal, it’s just business.” I’ve never been able to wrap my head around that phrase because it implies the human element should be kept separate from how we strategize and execute in business. In my experience, the most successful people are emotionally in tune with their surroundings, possess a high level of self-awareness and fully understand the personal value they bring to a professional situation. You can have the best business plan in the world (and believe me, I love crafting a good plan!), but if you don’t acknowledge the human component of doing business then you may likely fall short of hitting your goals.
Hi I’m Michelle Mercier, a Business Coach, Podcast Host, and Motivational Speaker who believes the most strategic approach to business is one that includes both personal AND professional development. Identifying individual roadblocks and cultivating the right mindset are EXACTLY the things that help you to grow, scale or achieve the next level of professional success, whether you are a company, a leader, an executive or an entrepreneur.
Through one-on-one coaching, I work with high achieving leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs to optimize their strategic business practices while enhancing their personal development. I support clients by forming a collaborative partnership that enables them to navigate challenges with ease, remove mental blocks, and reach their highest potential.
My goal as a speaker is to motivate the audience while providing concrete strategies that can be put into practice immediately. I leverage my 20+ years of experience on stage to deliver engaging keynotes, breakout sessions & workshops on relevant topics such as weathering adversity, work/life integration, leading through change and many more!
The Resilient Entrepreneur with Michelle Mercier is a conversational business podcast where I share all the lessons I’ve learned, as well as interview CEOs, executives and entrepreneurs who have succeeded despite adversity. We’ll help you cultivate the right business knowledge and necessary soft skills to succeed on your professional journey.
I am in my 4th year of doing business. Michelle was put in my Life by the Grace of God. Growth is a never ending process. I knew in order to go to the next level I would need a Business Coach. That’s where Michelle came in. She has taught me so much in the last few months. She is on top of a skyscraper and knows what is coming. Exactly what I needed to keep my anxiety at bay and keep pushing me to scale towards my dreams and goals. Thank you, Michelle Mercier. It’s an honor and privilege to learn from you.
I have had the pleasure of hearing Michelle speak on multiple occasions. She is sincere, but uses humor, and reality to pull in her audience. Michelle is the real deal! I highly recommend her to speak at your group or program.
Michelle is so gifted at sharing her authentic self when she speaks. I find myself nodding along and relating to everything she shares. She’s full of heart-centered wisdom with a great sense of humor mixed in.
I highly recommend working with Michelle! She’s an excellent coach that helped me successfully navigate a new and challenging role with ease. Michelle is empathetic and a great listener, but she’s also wicked strategic and will whip you into shape. Not only did I benefit from her unique coaching approach, but I found her years of experience in the corporate world to be a true asset as I built my team and strategy in my organization.
