I have had the opportunity and pleasure of knowing Michelle for the past several years. I have attended her workshops and from that, I engaged her to speak at several events for a professional group and conference I am a part of. Hands down, her track was the best attended and had the most responses with amazing feedback! Her insights into the topic of emotional intelligence along with other topics are profound and her book is a must read. Michelle is very passionate about her work and is an enthusiastic engaging speaker that not only captivates your attention with topic content, but also engages you as part of the learning.

During our four years of coaching, Michelle has helped me grow tremendously as a leader and a person. These changes helped me move Keystone Pharmacy forward in our community and has aided greatly in staff retention.

If you are looking for a presenter who can create an engaging environment, allow your team to interact with one another and participate in a few activities, IPV Consulting would be my top choice! Michelle has so much valuable information to share and knowledge around moving your team to a positive and more energized group to work amongst. She assists your team with finding your value and how to improve yourself as well as your business through a number of resources.

Michelle did a great job energizing our team and keeping them engaged throughout her time with two different groups. Our team members really enjoyed the subject matter and the interactive nature of the activities that Michelle planned for them. I’d highly recommend her for a staff training for any organization or group.

Asst. City Manager, Novi, MI

Michelle was an amazing speaker for the Region V IIMC Meeting in Grand Rapids, MI. Over 70 City/Township municipal clerks from 5 states attended and all gave her rave reviews. Her topics were Avoiding Burnout and Empowering Leadership. Both of which are critical to our daily and professional lives.

Sarah Bydalek

City Clerk at City of Walker, MI

Michelle Steffes of IPV Consulting comes highly recommended from my personal experience. I had been going through challenging experiences in my professional life, which were impacting me negatively in all areas of life--even inducing clinical depression. I explored several avenues to seek help. I was hesitant that a coach was what I needed, but I had heard Michelle speak to our employees, and she struck a cord and resonated with me...

Michelle with IPV has done a great job working with our staff to develop much needed skills in time planning, managing personal stress, empathy, listening and many other skills. Her direct approach and dedication to helping people succeed has been a welcome resource for our team.

The Michigan Society of Association Executives was fortunate enough to have Michelle come speak at our CMP Summit this past October. She kicked off our program with the topic "Avoiding Burnout". Our attendees enjoyed her creative and humorous approach to helping relieve stress in the workplace. Our evaluations proved she was the most popular speaker at our 2 day Summit so we have invited her back next year, too!

The GR Business Journal/Gemini Publishing Sales team recently completed 12 monthly sessions with IPV Consulting on Emotional Intelligence. With Michelle's direction the sales team was able to overcome challenges with corporate change both personally and professionally. I highly recommend her corporate training for teams of all sizes. Her monthly workshops are engaging and geared to every learning style. We absolutely enjoyed and looked forward to each month of training with Michelle. . . IPV consulting was informative, engaging, helpful and really resonated with what I am facing personally and professionally. Michelle you are great!
