"I am at a point in my life where I'm trying to decide on a career change. Through Michele Hanson's assessment and coaching, I can now recognize what my true interests and needs are in the work environment. Michele has helped me to identify my weaknesses and focus on my strengths. Her suggestions have truly been invaluable. She has helped me set goals and gain the courage to pursue a new career that will be more suitable for me."
Mendy Freppon, CEO, Front & Center Marketing
“Working with Michele on my Birkman Assessment® was a wonderful experience that delivered incredible results. The Birkman Assessment® helped me truly understand my strengths and needs. I had a basic idea of my strengths, but was not educated on what I needed to be effective and satisfied in a work place environment. By learning more about my needs, I was able to identify the ideal workplace setting in which I would be both satisfied and successful. I am a consultant and I screen potential clients just as diligently as they screen me when determining whether or not I am a good match for their company. Having my needs met is vital to my performance level. I want to do outstanding work and now I know what I need to deliver outstanding results. Michele provided me with an incredible set of tools for success. My only regret is not doing the Birkman Assessment® sooner.”

"Michele Hanson, as a skilled presenter and facilitator, has expertise that has proven most valuable to me in my work with volunteer and professional ministry leaders. By offering the Birkman Method Assessment® as a tool for gaining in-depth insights and personal motivation, Michele helped me to offer an overnight leadership opportunity that was, by far, the most highly-rated retreat experience in our group's long history. I highly recommend Michele - she is truly an outstanding expert in her field."
"At a dynamic weekend workshop experience led by Michele, I gained valuable insights into my personal strengths and the most effective ways of motivating myself to pursue excellence in all aspects of my life. I have since sent each of my three sons and several other young adults to consult with Michele during times of transition. Michele offers a unique blend of humor, empathetic encouragement, and expertise in assisting people of all ages to achieve their full potential. I highly recommend Michele's services of skillful coaching and innovative leadership."
Fr. Charlie Calabrese
Former TCU Catholic Campus Minister
"Michele Hanson did leadership development with the TCU Catholic Community Advisory Board and the Student Board. Each Board member completed the Birkman Assessment® Questionnaire. Then Michele interpreted the results. Everyone gained insight into their interests, needs, stressors – and the way they related to people. With her couching, Board members began to understand their relational dynamics and how to work more cohesively and more intentionally. Another outcome was that some members realized the positions they held did not engage their interests. As a result, they switched to positions that did.
Michele also facilitated Town Meetings to get feedback from, and to brainstorm with, Community members. Several students wanted someone to mentor them in their academic major. Others wanted more contact with local families. So Michele formed and oversaw both a Mentor Program and a Host Family Program.
In response to Pope Francis’ call to “Serve the Poor,” Michele arranged for five Fort Worth agencies who served the poor, to come to campus in order to share their mission, to explain their needs, and to invite our Community as volunteers to partner with them in serving the poor. This resulted in a large number of our Community members volunteering with these agencies.
This just scratches the surface of the impact Michele made on our Community. Her dynamism, her creativity, and her vision are contagious! I am forever grateful for the transforming work that Michele did with our Community!"
