We thought our company was pivoting. As it turned out, it was more of a restart. Morale was incredibly low. We weren't communicating well. Yes, we were growing quickly, but several new competitors had entered the market that was much better funded and there was no way we could compete. Some of us knew were about to be destroyed and we had to take drastic measures, but not everyone understood this. Things were bad, in fact, they were the worst I've ever seen. I did not think we could rally the team. Then I met Michelle Saul. Michelle and Possibilities Consulting helped us rally around what was important and we successfully restarted the business. The new business is far more successful than I could have imagined at the time. Not only did Saul save our business, she saved friendships. Thanks Michelle.

Propelled our company to a new level
Michelle has been a true gift to me personal and to our company. Her ability to get to the core of issues, and not only be able to see things from a different lens, but to also make you understand that other lens, is like nothing I have ever experienced. She has both helped us fix issues within our company, along with instill personal growth from our entire exec team. She is a true joy to work with and has propelled our company to a new level since getting to work with her.

Transformation as a Leader
I've had business coaches in the past, but my experience over the past few years with Michelle has transformed me as a leader. Things she brought that others didn't included helping me get outside of my comfort zone, not being afraid to correct me, holding me to the highest standards and always providing an unbiased opinion. The part that really brought all of this together was her working with my co-founder, each of our managers and then much later on our individual employees. I highly recommend working with Michelle or anyone in their organization.
Guided us to a place of trust & accountability
I’ve been working with Michael and Michelle Saul and Possibilities Consulting for more than 15 years through over 3 companies and I would recommend them unreservedly to any business person who wants to be more efficient, more financially successful and have a stronger office culture.
Through their coaching and programs for teams they have guided our company culture to a place of trust and accountability, they helped us refine our mission vision and values and then disseminate that culture to our entire organization.
On top of that, they help people become better and more fulfilled individuals in the World.

Guided through acquisition
I had the pleasure of working with Michelle while I was part of a newly formed senior leadership team at a family owned business. Ownership had the foresight to understand strengths and opportunities within the team. Michelle helped fill the need to guide a leadership team from a family owned business through an acquisition by a fortune 250 company. On the personal front, Michelle helped me navigate the diversity amongst the leadership team. She had a unique perspective having spent time with each senior team member individually, no strings attached. Yet, she was effective in challenging me to practice ‘poise under pressure’ and to take the high road even when I knew I was in the right. These practices have helped me as I progressed into the Executive team in the newly formed company. I am thankful that Michelle was integral part of my professional development and encourage anyone experiencing a transformation at the senior and executive level to consider her as a resource.

Bridging the gap between EQ and IQ
Working with Michelle and the Possibilities team has been transformational to myself, my team, and our company. They have given us tools and asked questions that help bridge the gap between EQ and IQ. With these tools, it has created more open and authentic communication amongst the group and propelled our growth. Thank you!

professional development and tools for emotional health
“... As my 2 partners and I embarked on our new business venture 6 years ago, we decided to adopt an approach similar to what we heard the two olympians, Misty May and Kerri Walsh, used with a form of “couples counseling”, in their quest for another woman’s beach volleyball gold. Our goal was not to think alike, but to think together, while still shining with our own individual talents. With that, we reached out to Michelle to get ahead of navigating through business and personal challenges, while gaining clarity of what we wanted our company culture to represent. We’ve always known the key to client satisfaction and what our brand represented, however, she has been a touch stone as we developed our staff as a team, up to 16 now, and offered needed focus on professional development and tools for emotional health too.
I am now working with her on growth and awaking with my own personal journey of finding balance and joy in my next life chapter. As a self proclaimed “workaholic” with a thriving business that needs continued attention, and a widower/empty nester, Michelle is currently helping me recognize what makes me feel excited about the future, and how I can be in charge of my own destiny. Through personal time with her, and participating in her Possibilities 3 part program and annual Sedona trip of discovery, I’m feeling less reserved and more adventurous, and I like it!”
Peace and Joy, Kim
you led us from a negative event to a positive plan
Michael: I would classify you as a facilitator and conceptualizer supreme! You were such great help to us in a time when chaos could have reigned. Keeping us focused and prioritizing our issues held the day. By your soft spoken but direct way of working, you led us from a negative event to a positive plan. We became committed, unified, organized, and determined to make Entropin and ENT-102 successful. You are now a part, a great part, of our history and a positive influence on what is to happen in the future. The meeting of the Board on September 5th and 6th will go down as a turning point in our future success. Your work in this effort is greatly appreciated.

I really made some kind of breakthrough
Thanks for working with our TEC group, and specifically me, teaching me, and helping me. I really made some kind of breakthrough that I don’t fully understand yet. I got all choked up presenting my plan, as I talked about wishing I was less judgmental of the people I care deepest about. It was very unexpected that I would become so vulnerable in the group.
