Our Services

Business growth and succession planning bring their share of challenges.

In the face of new demands, what made your success as a business leader may not be what’s required to take the next step. Sometimes, it can feel lonely at the top.

Partnering with a coach can help put things into perspective, guide you in the development of new, critical skills and help you see what’s missing to reach your goals faster and more effectively.

About Impact Crescendo

Impact Crescendo is a business coaching firm that works primarily with growing or transitioning SMEs (small & medium enterprises), as well as some larger organizations. We help entrepreneurs and leaders better meet the challenges of business growth and adequately prepare for ownership transfer.

Business growth brings its share of challenges: the increased speed and risk in decision making, striking the right balance between structure and flexibility, delegating authority, managing multiple and concurrent projects, or even just keeping pace with the rate of change

Ensuring leadership continuity or transferring ownership to a successor can also be a trying process: conflicting visions, knowledge transfer… How ready are you to let go of the business you’ve built? Have you identified a successor? When will they be ready to take the lead?

Navigating through these transitions can make or break a company. In the face of new demands, what made your success as a business leader may not be what’s required to take the next step. Sometimes, it can feel lonely at the top.

Partnering with a coach can help put things into perspective, guide you in the development of new, critical skills and help you see what’s missing to reach your goals faster and more effectively.

Geneviève NolinManager, Organizational Learning

《 I feel privileged to have Julie as a coach. My attitude about my businesses and myself has shifted 180 degrees and I’m experiencing the same enthusiasm I had when I started out as an entrepreneur. Julie has helped me find new possibilities using my own knowledge and self-awareness. I take actions that help me see results. I value Julie’s feedback, intuitive coaching, commitment to my business and personal goals, and sincere caring for me to succeed. I would recommend Julie to anyone who wants to grow personally or the businesses they own or manage. It’s time extremely well invested. 》

《 Allowing yourself the privilege to be accompanied when you want to change things in your career or simply integrate a new position is, in my view, one of the best gifts you can offer to yourself. Julie is a “cool” coach. She allows us to go far into our introspection and truly respects us as individuals. Her experience gives her this beautiful capacity to understand our interrogations in specific situations. These coaching moments really allowed me to put things in place and work on my strengths, especially those I was unaware of! 》
