    Our Emcee for the evening:

      Sarah E Graves, PCC

    Sarah passionately and practically pursues the development of leaders through intentional, organic growth.  She emboldens leaders to create an environment where management is expansive, willing to move with agility beyond comfort zones, and to champion the individual and collective genius within the organization.  With teams in transition she inspires connection, realignment and forward progress within the awkward movements of the changing landscape.  Her belief is that coaching is as essential an element for an organization as the product or service the company produces.   “An employee who grows personally, grows professionally” and coaching seeds growth.

    Sarah is a certified professional coach with a PCC credential from the ICF and currently serve the local ICF chapter as board President.

    Meet our Coaches:

      Sheri Boone, MCC                                                  

    Sheri has been coaching for 17 years, gaining her MCC in 2004. When she first began coaching and mentioned she was a coach, the inevitable reaction was either a look of confusion, or the question, “oh, for what sport?” Today coaching has grown and continues to be the one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Sheri is proud she has grown along with it and that she has stayed in this magnificent profession.

    Along with coaching individual clients, and her leadership and executive work with her partners in Inspired Mastery, Sheri has trained hundreds of coaches at the level of certification for three Accredited Coach Training Programs. She love this work – training, supporting and mentoring new coaches. Sheri has an expert ear for hearing masterful coaching.

    It became a natural progression then, for her to offer mentoring to coaches as they prepared to apply for the ACC, PCC, or MCC. Her clients come from many different coach training orientations and schools. She work together with them to fine-tune their coaching to meet the ICF skill requirements for each level of credential. Sheri’s clients are great coaches as they begin, and at the completion of their work, they are more highly skilled and experienced. It’s Sheri’s great honor to work with so many excellent coaches! 

      Steve Thorson, PCC

    Steve specializes in development of Leaders, seeking leadership excellence for themselves and organizational health for the organizations they lead. Creating a collaborative environment where individual voices are heard, innovation occurs and accountability exists through a coaching approach to leading.  Steve stands in his belief, faith and trust in the outcomes of a coach approach to leading because he knows it works.  His invitation to others is to experience and experiment with the approach.

    As a Certified Professional Coach with over 25 years of Operations Management experience, Steve’s clients include Executives and Senior Managers seeking leadership excellence in a corporate setting, business owners seeking balance in their life and leaders of groups and teams looking for increased collaboration and performance.  A transformative approach to coaching results in clients, both individual and group, discovering an inner self and choosing agility, self-responsibility and contribution.

    Zorwyn Madrone, PCC

    Zorwyn Madrone believes in the human capacity to reinvent ourselves. She coaches because she has experienced the transformative impacts of creating conscious change both as a coaching recipient and practitioner.

    She partners with leaders to grow their authentic presence and increase their impact in organizations. Her clients are driven but may be at an impasse in their career trajectories, working with a challenging direct report, managing work/life balance issues or needing to find their way back from burnout. When partnering with Zorwyn, clients experience her practicality, curiosity, humor and insightfulness.

    Zorwyn brings over 20 years of experience in communication and human behavioral change. She spent many years in the conflict transformation field where she worked in non-profit, government, higher education and corporate contexts.  She has extensive experience building constructive work environments with high feedback cultures. She currently coaches leaders from new managers through executives.

               About Michael Kline

    Michael Kline is a Master Certified RIM Facilitator & Trainer, and a Certified Jack Canfield Speaker and Trainer.  He is the 11th of 12 children born into poverty to an alcoholic father living in a junkyard. He lost his mother to cancer at age 7 and was raised by an emotionally abusive aunt and uncle. Michael learned the powerful lesson of the junkyard; Resourcefulness is more important the resources.

    Against all odds, he won a prestigious scholarship and launched a professional career becoming a Director of Training & Development for the world’s largest travel franchise company. Michael then became the turnaround president of a regional franchise with 58 locations. After helping dozens of franchisees launch and grow their businesses, it was time for Michael to spread his own entrepreneurial wings. He left the corporate world and has since launched 6 successful small businesses of his own. During that same period, he wrote a newspaper advice column, chaired his local SCORE Chapter, and became very involved with local non-profits and community events.

    His journey from junkyard to country club is proof that anyone can achieve anything. Michael is now a Certified Jack Canfield Speaker & Trainer, and Master Certified RIM (Regenerating Images in Memory) Practitioner & Licensed Trainer. He currently speaks and trains to business audiences about human potential, specifically in Leadership & Teamwork, Success Principles, Corporate Culture, Communications, Personal Growth, and Empowerment.

    Currently, Michael works closely with Jack Canfield, assisting him with his prestigious Train the Trainer Program, developing the next generation of speakers and trainers around the world. Also, as a RIM Institute Licensed Trainer, Michael teaches advanced coaching skills to Certified Coaches. In his private practice, Michael serves professional women (and a few smart men) who want to make the second half of their life a whole lot better than the first half.
