“Whether it's for wellness, leadership or career coaching, this is a safe space where you can be both vulnerable and empowered. 100% go for it!”
I was slightly apprehensive at first - unveiling all of your innermost thoughts and feelings to a coach can seem like a daunting task! Crystal's approach and skillset puts your mind at ease right away, and the experience is really an inner journey, guided along by the sessions. Crystal doesn't tell you how to feel, or what you should be doing, and is there to get the best out of what you already have. I loved that she feels like both a friend, a mentor and your diary where you can talk openly and honestly with no fear of judgement. She's willing to give you the tough talks when needed but never makes you feel like you're wrong or stupid for feeling a certain way.

When 3 different people recommended Talent Collective to me within 3 days, I knew that we were meant to work together. Little did I know how life changing that decision was going to be.

Their expansive network of connections was also incredibly helpful in helping me find opportunities I would not have come across myself.

"I can't sing enough praise for Crystal and Annika. What a dynamic duo!"
Beyond being the friendliest ladies North of the border (Canadians, gotta love them), they reignited a youthful optimism that had faded in my (9-5) grind. The confidence I gained over the course was beyond measure. I came in seeking a total career transformation and we chipped away to get me on track towards my future facing goals. No turning back! I think we defined it as the 'Poof moment'. My career perspective has changed dramatically and the future looks brighter and more positive already. My advice is, stop reading this review, and sign up already! You won't regret it!

"Helped us to focus on the "small" areas of our business that often get overlooked."
Working with Crystal has been instrumental in a number of key areas as we have been scaling our business. She has helped us to focus on the "small" areas of our business that often get overlooked when as a startup we are so focussed on product, revenue and "traction." These things might seem less crucial - until they start to go wrong! Crystal has helped us to put out some fires when we ignored things we should not have, but more importantly helped us to prevent more fires from happening in the future.
