Meet Michelle Sterling
Founder, Vis Activa®

Award-Winning Corporate Trainer, Learning Strategist, Change Facilitator and widely respected Professional Development Coach.

Since 1989, I have been helping individuals and teams achieve their professional goals and find personal success through employer-offered training and development programs.  


Over this time, I have gained a deep understanding and expertise in the human dynamics at play in the workplace, and how these can impact (both positively and negatively) our overall sense of wellbeing.


I've worked with thousands of individuals and teams and have come to recognize just how important it is for each of us to learn what it takes to tap into our own inner drive and motivation.  That's where it all begins.


The story I hear often is that people don’t want to work hard anymore.  The truth is that most people aren’t getting the support they need to do the work, yet alone what they need to move to that next level and thrive.


If this is you and you're ready to shift your experience, please reach out to talk with me about how I can best support you. Let's get you on the path to a quality work+life that restores your sense of true wellbeing.

“When I hired Michelle, I got the luxury of getting someone who was seasoned and well-networked.  When you are lucky enough to find someone with those two things, there is nothing they can’t do.”

“Michelle helps people get to the bottom of who they are and helps them define what their future looks like—literally spending that kind of time with people to find what
makes me them happy.”

"Michelle understands what it is like to be held back from achieving your maximum potential, and has
experienced the magic of what it's like when companies 'get it right' and put programs and people into action."
