Testimonials

I was astounded to learn how the beliefs we have about ourselves can hold us back and the tremendous power in changing that way of thinking. Learning to replace the words "I can't" with "how can I" continues to inform me everyday!!

I was in a critical turning point in my career and was wasting months and months of sitting on the fence. I couldn't decide whether or not to bring my massage therapy practice home or not. Jitka's coaching style and promptness allowed me to find the answer. Coaching truly empowered me. A new company, Therapeutic By Design Inc.., was born.
Jitka's style is empowering as it draws the answers out of you. The answer was already there, waiting for me to tap into it. It felt so exhilarating to have her bring it to the surface.

In the demanding environment of McKinsey, Jitka's achievements and impressive growth would be impossible without her positive approach and energy, unwavering professionalism, both in terms of technical skills and interpersonal demeanor, and her sense of teamwork.

The task ahead of me when I first met with Jitka seemed immense and impossible. I felt uncertain and overwhelmed at the time. My possibilities seemed limited. Jitka's calm, patient and caring personality, insightful questions and communication expertise boosted my morale and provided me the support that I needed to steadily put in place what I needed to do. In a way Jitka was my midwife as I nurtured the growth of my practice, while I laboured and birthed a dissertation.
