Sylvia is an extraordinary professional to work with. She brings a rare strength and grace to the conversation, creating an environment that welcomes free expression. Her skillful approach opens up honest dialogue, encouraging the work necessary to achieve the goals identified and defined throughout the course of the process. I would highly recommend her coaching services to anyone looking to improve, refine, and/or grow their professional/personal skills and abilities.

“Unleashing Team Potential: Lessons for Managers from My Canine Friends” was inspired by a trip to the dog park. While Josee was playing with other dogs, Sylvia noticed some common challenges between the owners and the dogs – and frankly, the dogs seemed to deal much better with team dynamics!

As she reflected on this insight, an idea for speeches and then her book arose – she decided to use often fun, sometimes cute dog stories to illustrate the common dynamics that occur in teams. In each chapter, you will find a short dog vignette to demonstrate the team dynamics challenge and then helpful hints to assist you as a manager to become more self-aware, to assist your team to work more effectively together and to help you Unleash Your Team’s Potential – by becoming the leader you were meant to be.

This easy to read book gives tips and tricks to effectively lead your team – ones you can put to work today.
