Simple, Fast Solutions to Complex Issues
"Although your involvement was a little over a month, your negotiation
strategy coaching provided the pivotal push from a stalemate towards
resolution of a $300,000 lawsuit which remained unresolved although a team
of lawyers from several high profile law firms had been involved in the case
for over 4 years."

Lower Stress Levels, Increased Employee Retention, Higher Motivation and Team Performance
Pavla worked with several employee and management groups on team building and communication skills. The response to her coaching and counselling style was by far the most positive and successful that I have seen. The results were almost immediate, and translated into more confident, motivated and satisfied employees, which in turn improved retention within these departments. As service departments in a large busy law firm, the training also provided the employees with a better understanding of how to respond to stresses often beyond their control. With more confidence and stronger communications skills, the department service level also improved.

Insights That Change Your Results
"I'd have to say that this week was a 10! What's not to like: being at the vortex of a $3 billion auction provided enough of an affirmation. The huge, complicated project and working alongside a diverse group of bright hardworking people was a thrill I don't tire of. Merci beaucoup beaucoup, Pavla! Things at work have substantially changed, needless to say, since our first chat. The homework assignments proved to be very valuable on several different fronts. So, once again, thanks Pavla. You're an awesome coach!!!"

"Thank you for the offering of useful information and techniques regarding motivation, discipline techniques, assessing staff more effectively, etc. You were an excellent and interesting speaker - you kept everyone involved and topics moved and changed smoothly."
"When I met you I think that I was very afraid for my future. I was very suppressed and flat and lifeless. My average earnings for the 3 months prior to starting coaching were about $1700/mo. I was living in a basement room in someone else's house. Now 5 months later I am joyful and energetic. I love how things are going. I have a new place to live that is the largest amount of personal space that I have ever had. I have a new job that pays me more than 3 times what I was making when I started working with you, and is the most I have ever made in my life. Women are starting to look at me again. Pavla, you have changed my world, you have turned my head completely around and faced me in a new direction. For that I thank you with all my heart."

exceptional motivational speaker."
