Our executive leadership team was embroiled in conflict and low trust between members was palatable. We worked at crossed purposes with each other. We were a “team” in name only.
I realized that this was seriously eroding our effectiveness in providing leadership to the organization and quality to our clients. Alexandra Salamis walked into a minefield and created an atmosphere from the start that was non-threatening, safe yet challenging at the same time. She provided the platform from which we could respectfully address the root causes of our conflict and mistrust.
From the beginning, I was skeptical about us becoming a true team again. With authenticity, courage, patience and good humour, Alexandra skillfully worked with our team to turn conflict into cooperation and suspicion into trust. She did a phenomenal job! I highly recommend Alexandra for those who need help with creating and sustaining a high-performance team.Sandra M.
I was part of Alexandra’s Change Management team at MD Physician Services working on the organization’s first ever Business Transformation Project. During this time Alexandra’s responsibilities grew as the Assistant VP of Organizational Development and Change Management. While on the team, she took on the role of coach to all Senior Members of the Project Team, providing invaluable advice and support. Alexandra Salamis is highly effective and comfortable working at both the operational and strategic level. Alexandra’s trust in her team’s abilities was empowering, she was always there to listen, bounce ideas off and provide support with a personal and human touch whenever needed. She respected her teams’ knowledge, experience and contribution to the project and led the team with integrity.Patsy D.
I came to work with Alexandra Salamis at a turning point in my life. Call it good timing, chance or fate but meeting Alexandra was a life changer. She opened my eyes to realities and new opportunities and she provided me with the tools to put them in place. She not only offered professional, ethical and knowledgeable coaching but went beyond the call of duty by providing a supporting ear, demonstrating empathy and often using humour and her communicative laugh to help me get through difficult moments. I am grateful to call Alexandra my coach, my guide and now my friend.Gwen M.
I’ve worked with Alexandra Salamis on a number of projects as well as being coached by her. I highly recommend her for any potential coaching or consulting engagement. She is thoughtful and professional; frequently providing out of the box solutions to seemingly intractable problems. I’ve had a number of coaches in the past and in my experience, Alexandra is the best of them all. She is knowledgeable with extensive hands-on C-suite business experience and expertly manages to walk the fine line between challenge and support.Chris L.
Before working with Alexandra Salamis I had a couple of work experiences where I realized that I was not as trusted as I thought I was with some people at work. As their director, this realization blindsided me and bugged me constantly. I spoke to a friend who suggested that coaching might help. My friend recommended Alexandra because he had worked with her and had great success. At the beginning, I was quite self-conscious. She was great at putting me at ease. She opened the door to me looking at myself from a place of self-compassion and curiosity. Through our sessions, I learned how to better align my well-meaning intentions with my words and actions with others. This has turned out to be a game changer! I highly recommend Alexandra as a coach for people who are interested in making some real changes.John M.
