On coaching and corporate programs:

“Choosing the right coach is not simple, even if you know what you are looking for. It is a very personal experience and chemistry is a critical component of the relationship. I was fortunate to have Wendy as my executive coach. It felt natural right from the very first session and it became clear to me that Wendy has a unique ability to help me focus on what matters most. Wendy is gifted master coach with exceptional listening skills. She helped me find and address blind spots, become more self-aware and gain clarity when I needed to in order to pursue my passions and vision. Growth Mindset is one of my values and Wendy was instrumental in challenging, guiding and supporting me at a time when it had a significant impact on my career. I warmly recommend working with Wendy and I’d love to work with her again in the future.”

— Tomer Cohen Vice President of Product LinkedIn

“Wendy’s ability to serve as a transformational coach for me has been invaluable. She has a great command of the leadership development domain and is able to leverage her knowledge and her clients’ natural abilities into meaningful business results.”

— Jason Holmes, President and COO at Showpad

“I had the good fortune to partner with Wendy Wallbridge as my executive coach for 6+ months, and my experience with her was nothing short of transformational. Through our work together, I have become a more confident, strategic, and self-assured leader because Wendy offered an open and supportive environment for me to work through whatever was going on in my professional life (and in the last six months, there’s been a lot!). She had a terrific knack for knowing exactly when to push and challenge me, and when her role was most effective as listener, thought partner, and sounding board. Because she supplements her coaching experience with outside research, I always walked away from our coaching sessions feeling more energized, dialed-in, and emotionally intelligent. Not only am I a better version of myself, professionally, I am the proud owner of an entire notebook filled with “Wendy-isms”: nuggets of wisdom and insightful one-liners that I took away from our work together. Thinking back on my work with Wendy, I only have two regrets: that I don’t have the opportunity to work with Wendy for a longer period of time AND that I didn’t record each one of our sessions for future reference.

Thank you, Wendy, for your support and guidance. Working with you has been a game changer for my career.”

— Holly Lignelli Head of Talent Brand, Global Accounts and Connected Enterprise at LinkedIn

“I have high praise for Wendy Wallbridge as an executive coach. She has the unique ability to help executives bring their best to the table, by using her deep insight into people and her commanding use of language. Wendy gives me renewed energy everytime I meet with her and her expert advice on the entire picture that leads to success has always pointed me in the right direction which has led me to achieve my career goals, and more importantly a happy life. I highly recommend her.”

“(The Spiral Up) Team Reinvention program caused a marked culture shift in our company. We shifted from strong silos of turf protecting, unproductive working relationships and practices (unproductive meetings, interactions, projects, and a wave of ramifications), to a company-wide commitment to accountability and positive intent for how people work together and get things done. We’ve reduced conflict management issues by half, improved efficiency by 30-40% and have a renewed alignment to creating an extraordinary organization.”

— Liezel Barbuto, 
Director, Learning & Development, TD Ameritrade


On speaking:


“Wendy did an excellent job of customizing a ‘transformation’ webinar for Intel – she has great presentation skills and relates well to her audience.”

— Linda Kenworthy, Health & Life Sciences Director, Americas Sales at Intel

“Wendy’s “Spiraling Upward” session positively affected every single person on my team, which is comprised of over-achievers who deal with a lot of fast moving parts and demanding, high expectations. My people gained new perspectives and techniques for managing that velocity without burnout. Wendy knows how to “read” the room and tailored her inspiring session to their most pressing needs: increasing confidence and resilience, managing the “inner critic” and owning their power. Many individuals had personal breakthroughs from her on-the-spot coaching. Everyone took away an actionable personalized “practice” and accountability partners to support them in up-leveling their performance, leadership, career and well-being.

Months after Wendy’s workshop, people have put into action her advice and have profoundly changed their lives , feeling more in control, more aware and happy with the path they are on.
With her fantastic range and abilities, Wendy was able to connect with each and every diverse person on our team and helped connect her knowledge with their strengths.”

— Alexandria Alvarez Gahagan Global Events, Amenities & Community Engagement Manager, Facebook

“I started reading Spiraling Upward while performing in a very personally challenging play, and experiencing debilitating stage fright. Using Wendy’s inspiring and extremely practical approach, I’ve been able to shift from my false self who was so afraid of not getting it “right” to my true self, who has the confidence to come from who I am in the present moment. It has made all the difference in the world—for me and for the audience. And, of course, it’s an invaluable lesson for my offstage life as well. Thank you Wendy.”
