Michèle M. Taipale

I am a creative and ardent advocate for human potential: a catalyst for exceptional performance and true well-being. 

I combine a pragmatic worldview with a joyful curiosity about the vagaries of human behavior. I want you to lead a bigger life, to be generous with your gifts and your love, to have more impact, to have better relationships, to improve the world, to lead a life you unequivocally love.

I work with high achievers who want to become more powerful, intentional and effective leaders in all realms of their lives; a thought partner who helps leaders of impact throughout the world challenge themselves to take their careers and their companies to the next level. 

With a broad range of experience, from entrepreneur to strategy consultant to mindfulness and positivity scholar, I help you see professional and personal challenges from many perspectives and provide unique insights. I bring compassion, intelligence, humor and energy, and a full spectrum of tools to help you evolve as a leader not only at work but also in your family, in your community and in your own life.

I received my MBA from The Wharton School, an MA in International Affairs from the University of Pennsylvania and an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. I am a fellow of the Lauder Institute and have been a member of Ellen Langer's Mindfulness Lab in the Psychology Department at Harvard University. I am a certified Happiness Advantage Coach with Shawn Achor's GoodThink, Inc., and a certified Motivation Factor Practitioner. I am certified with The Coaches Training Institute, and am a founding coach of the The Women's Impact Alliance (formerly The Coaching Fellowship). I have an extensive international background and speak English, French, and German.

And I'm above averagely quirky.
