How we work


Here's how Single Sessions work: 

60 min Sessions
Sometimes all it takes is one conversation with a coach to get things back on track or to help you get unstuck. In less than 90 minutes, we can identify what's holding you back and strategize how to make meaningful changes towards achieving long-term goals. Single Session Coaching are those one-off sessions when you want to get some clarity or you need immediate support to achieve your goal.Some examples of things we can cover are:

Brainstorming and identifying plans of action
- This is where we can work together to come up with ideas and a plan of action to get you from point A to point B.

Value clarification and figuring out your approach to selling yourself
- This is where we’d discuss what value you bring to your role, your team, your business. How you can properly communicate in a way where you’re positively advocating for yourself. 

Resume and Cover Letter LinkedIn creation or editing
- We can dedicate this time to refining your resume and cover letter to stand out amongst other candidates.

Job Application and Interview Prep
- How are you answering behavioural or situational based questions? Apply with confidence, and let’s test your interview skills. We can use this time to go through a few questions and how you should answer them.

Here's how the Coaching Program works: 

60 min Discovery Session
We will explore what your goals are, why it matters, and what is standing in your way.

60 min Offer Session
I will offer you an Integral Coaching™ assessment of your Current Way of approaching your goal, what is serving and limiting you and, introduce a New Way designed to focus and support development in this area.

60 min Developmental Sessions (up to 7)
We will review and explore what is arising for you as you work through your Integral Coaching™ Program and make the connections between what you are experiencing and how to use that information to leverage growth. These will include practices, check-ins, and ongoing support.

60 min Completion Session
This session gives us an opportunity to take in all that you have accomplished during your Integral Coaching™ Program. We will look at how you can maintain the momentum you have generated, on your own, and prepare for potential challenges as you go solo.

Happy clients and what
they had to say about me.

I worked with Shyle as my coach in the Summer of 2020. Shyle was able to get at the heart of the challenge I was experiencing through working with me on my current way of being and my new way  of being. I experienced significant improvements and even greater awareness then I had prior to working with Shyle. I am someone who has pretty strong self awareness but the way that Shyle was able to get at the heart of my challenge and not only untangle it for me, but also outline a clear path forward, all while being very compassionate and understanding was something I had never experienced before and it was life changing to have worked through the Integral coaching program with him. The clarity, kindness and self efficacy that was afforded to me through working with Shyle was priceless and I can't recommend him and his services enough!

I began working with Shyle in the second half of 2020 and I'm very thankful I did. Through our work together I've been able to get more clarity on where I want to go and what is in the way of me getting there. Having someone like Shyle helping me understand my current ways of thinking about my growth and holding me accountable to reflecting on new ways of thinking and knowing has changed me for the better. Shyle is the kind of coach that communicates with honesty, empathy and compassion. He makes the challenging work of personal development feel like a team effort. I would highly encourage anyone that is considering or actively looking for a coach to work with Shyle!

I have used various Coaches to inspire change, motivate, and to "level-up" my career. I can say confidently that Shyle's tactics, support, and highly personable approach is best in class. Shyle is able to listen and prescribe actionable tasks to ensure I am doing the RIGHT work to get me to the next stage in my career. I highly recommended Shyle for career professionals looking to build for their next chapter.

Being a person of colour, it can be quite difficult to navigate an ambitious career path in the tech industry, and Shyle was able to create an open & honest environment where I felt comfortable to be vulnerable about my flaws and where I needed to improve. His feedback as absolutely pivotal in giving me confidence in order to grow towards my goals. I believe I was able to have exponential impact for my team and organization due to Shyle's guidance. His coaching style is one of the best I've experienced as he spent so much time to learn my personal motivation and adjusted his strategy to my personal work style. I highly recommend Shyle as a coach if you are ready to make a significant change in the a positive direction.

Shyle has extraordinary skills working with people; the speed and clarity with which he can evaluate an issue and understand the heart of the problem is astounding. Shyle helped me understand my own inner motivations and behaviour better than anyone has before. He then gave me actionable feedback and work I could do to help me improve in my career. Not only that, but it's helped me understand how I react to situations outside of the workplace as well and helped me in my personal life. Shyle's knack for challenging people and understanding them makes him a phenomenal coach. I'm grateful to have had the chance to work with him.

I was lucky enough to receive coaching from Shyle in the Spring of 2021 and it was an excellent experience. I can admit that when I began with our coaching sessions I was not in the best mental space but Shyle was able to meet me where I was and create a set of goals that were perfectly tailored to my needs. Despite my limited capacity, I was able to reach my objectives and then some. I highly recommend Shyle’s coaching sessions to anyone that is looking to make a positive impact upon themselves - his empathetic approach and ability to hold people accountable make his sessions the perfect tool for self-improvement.

Shyle is a phenomenal coach that consistently helped me grow and build my confidence to believe in my own abilities. At the time I was someone who had a low trust battery and was feeling inadequate to be successful in my role and Shyle really helped me change that perspective. Shyle demonstrated a level of care I have never seen in a coach and really allowed me to zoom out on my goals and guide me to achieving them. He had an amazing ability to make me feel valued and appreciated at a time where I had not felt like that in a while. He supported me in reflection and always ensured his feedback was tailored and specific when he saw an opportunity in me. If anyone is looking for a coach, they would be lucky to have Shyle because he will be able to help you distinguish what it is you need at that time and guide you on how to get it
