"Shawna is clearly passionate about coaching and committed to helping people achieve their goals. She listens deeply and offers insights and questions that push me to reframe challenges and identify achievable next steps. I am a coach in training, and Shawna has been very supportive as I start on the path to making a career change. I really appreciate how accepting and direct Shawna is in her approach to coaching."

"I really enjoyed Shawna’s approach. I was working with her through a very vulnerable time, and although we had never met previously and although connecting through a virtual medium can be sometimes impersonal I felt a lot of trust toward her from the start. She was able to cultivate a very supportive and positive environment."

"Through her keen listening skills, Shawna is able to draw out moments of clarity to find the wisdom within myself to answer critical questions I am having at any given time. Shawna has the effective skills to make me implement changes while feeling empowered doing so!"
- Valerie R.
“I could tell that Shawna enjoys what she does and really wants to help. Shawna coaches in a way in which she doesn’t tell me what to do but instead guides me in the direction of figuring out what I want to do.”

“I am an organizational coaching convert thanks to Shawna Faber! Shawna worked with my Senior Management Team to develop a charter that guides internal communications for the BC Highway Patrol. This charter has been critical to improving how we lead our program and communicate our efforts to make our highways safer together. My team have told me that Shawna’s ability to organize and lead key discussions allowed them to identify where we could do better, how to chart a course to make these improvements a reality, and put us on the path to reach our true potential.
Shawna also provided me with individual coaching sessions in which she facilitated discussions which required me to focus on aspects of leadership that I knew could be enhanced, but never seemed to have time to get to. Just like my team, it was Shawna’s thoughtful and probing questions which challenged me to examine my leadership, find ways to improve, and develop a plan to make it happen! I believe that not only has Shawna helped me to be a better leader, but she has also provided me with skills to apply this to other areas so I can continue to enhance my ability to lead the BC Highway Patrol more effectively. If you are thinking that organizational coaching would allow you to do better and reach your potential, I would highly recommend Shawna!”
