“Our firm retained Sheila Madden to do 360 evaluations on a C-Suite leadership team that we had recently placed inside one of our portfolio companies. We selected Sheila because she has experience as an operating executive in early stage companies as well as her track record as an impactful coach and consultant. This combination of experience informs her work with a very insightful approach and also gives her a high level of credibility with CEO’s and their executive teams. I worked with Sheila directly on the project. She helped us define the key leadership competencies that were key to our strategic roadmap, she designed and executed a customized tool and process to ensure authentic feedback and she worked effectively with the leadership team as well as the Board to leverage results productively. We found Sheila to be a true professional and a trusted advisor.  Malcolm Thorton, Venture Partner at Starfish Ventures

“Authentic and inspirational leadership must start from within. The best leaders, the inspiration ones who  have the ability to connect the hopes and dreams of each individual  in the organization to the  higher purpose of the enterprise are rare.  If you endeavor to be a masterful leader and are seeking effective and  insightful leadership approaches and tools to achieve that goal , I highly recommend Sheila.  Sheila brings a wealth of  executive knowledge and experience to table. Her coaching is infused with wisdom and she has the  unique ability to operate as your true trusted advisor.”   Dan Brongiel, Board Member, Songbird

Sheila is a strong business and organizational strategist as well as an incredibly insightful leader in her field. She is so keenly aware of organizational nuances and individual behavior, and has such capacity for empathy, mixed with a truly unique capability to relate to all situations, that her insights are incredibly right on. Sheila and I worked together for several years focusing on building a  high performing team, as well as strengthening the management and executive bench. I truly considered Sheila a trusted partner in the success of my organization and turned to her many times, like many of my co-workers, for her advice and guidance. She was always able to target her coaching at the right level for highest impact, and always pushes (“tough love”) for individual breakthroughs. She is one of those great leaders who believe that sharing her experience, coupled with open and honest conversation is the best way to get to a truly effective solution.  I hold tremendous value on Sheila’s insights and leadership.”        Michelle Haag, Director, eBay

I was amazed at how fast I was able to make these shifts, and the tools, frameworks and insights she provided are long-lasting. Sheila is truly extraordinary.”  Eirene Chen, Marketing Leader, Consumer and Small Business
