Wendy Turner-Larsen, Executive/Leadership Brain Coach, MA MS MA PCC

About: Wendy is an extremely insightful coach with several years experience supporting her individual and corporate clients toward profound change. As a human behaviour expert, Wendy has a wealth of experience and expertise to help clients uncover root issues and challenges on the people side of leadership, thereby helping her clients identify and apply successful solutions.  Her supportive style, uncanny insight, education and experience in psychology, human behaviour, leadership, coaching, positive psychology, emotional intelligence and the science of brain health allows her to bring a breadth and scope to her coaching clients that produces remarkable change.

One of Wendy’s signature programs known as Personal Excellence for Women Leaders offers a transformational approach to the personal side of leadership. This includes an intensive two day workshop and follow up Power Circle Groups. “This was one of the most profound life changing and enlightening experiences that I have ever benefited from as an individual and a business owner. As you examine your behaviours and beliefs, you learn to create positive shifts in your life by gaining insight into how perfectionism, boundaries and people pleasing may be sabotaging your success. I have taken many courses and attended many workshops throughout my career and this one has made a significant difference for me in how I show up for others (and myself) both personally and professionally. I would not only recommend this program, I would strongly encourage all women to participate without delay.” Woman Business Owner and Entrepreneur
