"I had an unbelievable experience working with Tracey. Her coaching style enabled me to identify areas in my life that needed work, identify the changes that needed to happen to improve those areas, and make a plan to execute.
Over the course of some major life transitions, Tracey helped me push away the stress and doubt and navigate the changes with ease and confidence. She helped me stay focused on my goals and live my life with intention when it was so much easier to stay with the status quo. Tracey helped me create the life I want for myself and now is probably one of the happiest times of my life. I have never felt more like myself and it is in a huge part thanks to Tracey.
Throughout our sessions, Tracey created a space for me to be honest with myself and what I wanted. It felt like I was talking to a best friend I've known for years and I always walked away from our conversations more confident and centered than before. She was able to be a great listener and helped me gain new perspectives on life through a combination of drawing from her own experiences and asking me the right questions. The breakthroughs I had in my conversations with Tracey I am sure I will continue to draw from for years to come."
Tracey is one of the best strategic communications leaders I've ever worked with. She has a number of skills including: the ability to coach leaders to drive employee engagement through effective communications: a highly skilled communications professional helping leaders establish their brand through executive/presentation skills; a gifted writer, can turn ideas into visual pictures, understands PR, social platforms for connection; understands how to infuse each individual’s persona into their “voice” and effectively guides leaders to build high performance organizations through storytelling and meaningful narrative.

Tracey coached me around several communication deliverables in the period from May 2015 to May 2016. In the process she enabled me to find the best me. Rather than traditional teaching ways she followed a very modern growth mindset approach. As we continued she moved from just helping me review communication deliverables to actually making that deliverable work for my growth as an executive. The minor tweaks that she helped me discover went a very long way in polishing my Executive presence.

"Tracey Grove earned her reputation as a compassion coach with me at the end of January 2012. In short, she exhibits great intuition and coach maturity. Tracey is brave in her approach to unpeeling the onion and the heart of the matter while keeping the client’s agenda. Many of us go to work with the objective of getting the work done. Tracey however has been able to have me parallel how my whole life is a part of me achieving the best results in my work life."

"As a client of Tracey's, I have seen myself make great progress in my ability to drive the strategic priorities of my organization with a sense of greater ease and openness. I am clearer about keeping the path less defined, though remaining steadfast on the outcome I will achieve.
I have also benefited from examining some of the ways my action-orientation and extroverted nature show up in life (outside of work). I have benefited from deep exploration around how to trust my intuition, while leveraging my strengths for taking initiative and being decisive.
Tracey's ability to ask powerful questions, based on her fully present and listening intently, have proven to be a real gift to me. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Tracey, when seeking greater clarity, or to support myself to accelerate my progress."

"When you are getting coached or trying to identify a coach for one of your clients, it's a thoughtful task at hand. In the art of coaching, you strive to find someone that you can trust and have confidence that you will be heard and not judged. When I first had the privilege to meet Tracey it was the sincerity in the eyes and her tone of voice which hooked me.
It was a personally trying time for me while at Fielding and I recall in detail who was able to connect with me and who was not. I was impressed with her. I was a stranger and the connection with Tracey was solid. This is what you want in a coach, someone who can easily read a person or ask questions to understand where a client is at and how they are doing. Tracey has a compassionate demeanor and is truly sincere. These are rare qualities and I am fortunate to have her in my orbit."
