In planning where we are going, we first need to establish where we are.
When you hear the words "professional development" do you think of sitting in a training workshop at your place of business? Or perhaps you envision sitting in a room at a facilitated group coaching meeting. Maybe at some point you have had the opportunity to receive a professional assessment (and I don’t mean a personality test on Facebook), or even one-on-one professional coaching. Now, when you think of all those professional development services, do you envision significant travel time and expense?
Not HERE! I provide all of these professional development services within one robust coaching program.
The WorkLife Champion is an innovative program that provides professional assessment, leadership coaching, and professional development workshops to provide a personalized new approach to your individual development.
Meet your Coach
My name is Dr. Melanie Gallo and I am a professional coach and Forbes contributor dedicated to helping professionals reduce stress, increase clarity, and increase productivity. I believe that WorkLife is not as much about balance as it is about navigating through the fog within the work-life overlap. I don't believe that there is really a such thing as work-life balance unless you like wobbling around like a juggler on a unicycle. If that's balance then I'll pass on the circus act! I help people navigate the space within the Work-Life overlap. It's much less wobbly and unstable there.
My coaching approach is rooted in business psychology and behavioral science and the idea that:
Our THOUGHTS become our words, WORDS become actions, ACTIONS become habits, HABITS become character, and our CHARACTER becomes our DESTINY.
So Doc., What do coaches actually do?
“Coaching [is] partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole.” International Coaching Federation
“Group coaching can be appealing as it involves a peer learning process. Some coaching clients may prefer a collaborative group learning environment where they learn from the insights and contributions of peers, as they do from their own reflections. For clients who are more introverted, the peer learning process may feel "less on the spot" and provide more time for reflection and articulation of their insights. The ‘collective wisdom’ created and explored is often identified as a key benefit.” The Coaching Tools Company
“Scientifically valid and reliable professional assessment can not be done for free on Facebook! It should be administered by a qualified professional then followed by a professional feedback session to discuss your results and develop an action plan for moving forward.” Melanie Gallo, PhD
Professional Development Workshops
“The big corporations offer leadership development training. In fact, I had the opportunity to participate in these types of workshops while working for Hyatt Hotels and The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company. They were awesome and as a parting gift, we even received a leather bound planner (That was before cell phones and digital planners so it felt like a big deal back then).” Melanie Gallo, PhD
The value of working with a coach to accomplish your dreams is priceless, but value should also be affordable while you're on your way to achieving your goals. That's why I have combined the value of several coaching programs with the accessibility and affordability of one single program!
I call it The WorkLife Champion.
The WorkLife Champion program is a personalized, evidence-based program designed to help clients reach their full potential. Using a cognitive behavioral model of coaching, we identify and challenge the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that block individual growth.
It's done remotely. It's done by a human. The human is a specialist in human behavior.
Not artificial intelligence...human intelligence.

🧩 Two, live, one-on-one coaching sessions per month. Coaching is foundation of the WorkLife Champion program.

🧩 Professional development workshops. Your workshop will directly depend on the coaching goals that you create for yourself. If we are working on emotional intelligence, then your workshop will focus on the same. It is just another way to receive additional insights to compliment your personalized development experience.
