Engagement overview

Duration and cost of an engagement depends on the scope of work, identified during the initial consultation.


I agree with Susan. I've had experience with mentorship programs where there is not the same care she describes around matching the skill and availability of the mentor with the needs of the mentee, and the results were very disappointing. But when done right, the results are well worth the effort.

This is a great way to keep your most valuable employees.

It sounds like you've done a great job of getting the facts across. For the bigger picture, priorities and creative problem solving, is it possible to convene a group meeting. Brain storming and collective wisdom can be very powerful and give your team a real experience of what is expected on them going forward.

I have to add that having a coach or experienced facilitator lead such a meeting w... Read more

Congratulations! I was in a similar situation. We reached out to key people in the community representing different sectors, such as business, non-profit, law enforcement, politics, and formed a terrific advisory board who were very helpful in many areas, including recruiting new board members. You might also seek the assistance of foundations, and firms that specialize in matching board members t... Read more

Ask questions.
Listen, listen, listen.
Don't assume.
Ask what has worked.
Ask what has not worked.
Ask what they would have done differently.
Be open, reliable, become trustworthy.

Good luck!.. Read more

I agree with Paul. The greatest asset any of us has is personal awareness, including identifying our style of thinking, communicating, strengths, There is nothing inherently bad about not being a big picture thinker, just like it's ok to have brown eyes. However, if you are in a job where it is important to be a big picture thinker, you are in a bad spot. Personally, if I had to deal with a lot ... Read more


Congratulations on the progress you have made! The things that you have listed, active listening, being open to new ideas, 1on 1 relationships (with your direct reports) are essential management skills.

Hopefully, those 1 on 1 relationships are feeling like a place your direct reports can be open with you. If that is the case, would it be possible for you to initiate conversations about how they... Read more


Over the years, I have coached, mentored, and partnered with Ettie. Her executive experiences coupled with her psychologist experiences have given her a strong and deep understanding and compassion for the complex issues and goals of organizations, executives, and people in general. She operates at a deeper and more profound level than most coaches, which is a tremendous asset.

Having trained over 2000 coaches, I can confidently say that Ettie has demonstrated very powerful engagement, collaborative and supportive skills, as well expanding and challenging skills, which makes her a tremendous coach.

She has a strong sense of self, a great sense of humor, a strong business and result focus, and excellent listening skills. She can get provocative when it is most needed and balance it with support, which is a tremendous gift.

She is very professional with a positive energy and passion for what she does and she respects the humanity of her clients, which makes her a tremendous person.

The bottom line is I would trust her to coach any of my clients.

Edward Grosso, Owner Vital Connections

Ettie has volunteered numerous times at Connect to Care to teach our clients how to "Build Self Esteem". Her evaluations are always stellar and some of the comments are: "Ettie is supportive and makes me hopeful.", "Great ideas", "She gave us solid methods to increase self esteem.".

Ettie has always been willing to volunteer her time and we at Connect to Care are most appreciative! Thank you Ettie!

Anita Greenwald, Donor and Community Engagement

I took Ettie's workshop last year on Building Self-Esteem. I found the tools and framework really useful at a critical juncture in my professional life. I was at a conference where Ettie presented several months later, and the speakers integrated her concepts into their speeches. This shows how relevant her focus is to many. I highly recommend her workshop.

Bruce Segall, President Marketing Sense

I had the great fortune of meeting Ettie courtesy of the National Speakers Association, NYC chapter. Anyone wanting to advance themselves–either as fellow entrepreneurs or develop their corporate career–can benefit from her perspective and wisdom. In my own case, she was instrumental in pointing out areas that were hindering new levels of advancement that I wanted to achieve by helping me identify what they were and giving me the guidance on how to detach myself from them.

Jonathan Ankney, Owner Small Business CFO, Inc.

I hired Ettie to help me with time management issues. Through our coaching sessions I came to realize that my "problem" with time management was simply my ATTITUDE toward it. I was able to alter the way I look at projects and be more accurate about how long they will take, communicate that time better to my clients, and be able to do a good job because now I'm no longer rushing to meet unrealistic deadlines.

Lynn Amos, Principal and Creative Director Fyne Lyne Ventures and Fyne Lyne Lyte

Ettie's skillful guidance and intuitive sense have empowered me to successfully meet the challenges of a career transition. With clarity of mind and heartfelt encouragement she has enabled me to take steady incremental steps towards my goals with much greater speed than I ever would have been able to achieve on my own. She has my heartfelt thanks for being in my corner.

Sharon McLaughlin, Entrepreneur

I have known, and respected Ettie for a very long time. She brings an impressive background to her coaching – not only her coach training and psychotherapist background, but her perceptiveness, heart and innate wisdom. When I have life issues where I feel 'stuck,' she always has excellent feedback. I appreciate having someone I can talk with who understands these issues, and always has a fresh and upbeat take.

Susan Lasky, Owner Time & Space Solutions

I have been working with Ettie for business, as well as life coaching, and the results have been outstanding. Not only has my business and quality of life improved, my stress level has also gone down. Her qualifications, warm style, strong commitment to helping, professionalism and accessibility are some of her strengths. My life has changed for the better since I started using Ettie as my coach. I recommend her very highly for those that truly want to improve their lives.

Irene Berner, CFP, Owner Berner Financial Services

I am delighted to recommend Ettie Shapiro and the excellent workshops she has presented for the Women's Enterprise Development Center. Ettie has spoken to our clients on building self-esteem and also effective business communication. We even had her train our trainers to help them be more effective in the classroom. Ettie is a highly informative presenter and we are so lucky to have her as part of our Westchester women's business community!

Ruah Bhay, Owner Ruah Yoga

Working with Ettie is like finding a new friend who wants your highest good. She listened and broke though mental clutter, enabling me to identify where I wanted to go and what was holding me back. She combined humor and a personal sense of responsibility that showed through in her professionalism. I found her accessible, concerned, and able to focus on my issues by using her wisdom and experience. My time with her was most helpful in framing and working on my goals.
