A client from South-east Asia wrote 3 memorable moments from our coaching.
I think 3 traits describe Michael for me — utmost professional integrity, excellence and valued relationship. This story is about the 3rd trait:
My “Michael Moment” came when I had finished the case coaching program, having spent ~4 months, and 15 hours being mentored by Michael.
That day, I received the email decision from the consulting firm I was applying to. Sadly, I was unsuccessful in my application.
Of course the first thing I did was shared it with Michael, and after some comforting encouragement from him, he said one the most inspiring words I’ve ever heard:
That for him clients are friends.
I understood this when I later on chatted with him. He provided me with guidance and resources, beyond the scope of what I had assumed as the “formal business contract” of the program.
Michael, I am so fortunate to be your client and your friend.
