I have skills and experiences that people respect.

But... I am bumping up against some "people issues," and
I could use some support getting past the hurdles these issues are causing."

The focus of Performance Coaching is to optimize productivity and well-being, both in work and in life.

Performance Coaching is about helping people reach their full potential by guiding them to overcome hidden mental and emotional barriers to success. The drive to succeed is already there, we just need to work through the mental blocks and psychological obstacles that stand in the way. 


"I've accomplished a lot, but I'm capable of so much more..."
Success means different things to different people. It is your definition of success that becomes the primary driver of the Performance Coaching goals. Once you define success, it's important to have a mindset that matches the desire.


Michelle's experience and wisdom are evident in the way she assists clients with developing and maintaining a mindset for success.

The strength of Michelle's Performance Coaching is in guiding clients to:

  • clear mental blocks
  • uncover blind spots
  • recover from setbacks
  • overcome upper-limit barriers
  • communicate optimally in relationships

"As an experienced psychotherapist (before I became a Performance Coach), I was trained to "go for the pain," because that's what people needed help with most: breaking free from mental and emotional challenges. It's like being a detective, figuring out what the root of people's internal struggle is, then helping them process it, so they can overcome it and grow beyond it once and for all."
~ Michelle Volz

People who work to clear away negativity create space for positive things to happen, which is exactly what Michelle guides her clients to do.

The heart/mind connection cannot be denied, and Michelle Volz is an expert at getting to the root of the matter that occupies a person's heart and mind - to help clear the path for success and well-being. 



Performance Coaching involves various coaching strategies that support personal development and mental wellness which include:

  • boosting self-confidence
  • changing limiting beliefs
  • managing mental energy
  • overcoming imposter syndrome
  • finding solutions for procrastination
  • best practices for time management
  • the core belief of deserving success
  • keeping your body budget in balance
  • cultivating willpower and self-discipline
  • setting up habits and rituals for success
  • staying focused during distracting times
  • sustaining motivation and positive mood
  • uncovering blindspots that impede success
  • breaking through hidden self-imposed upper limits
  • using communication that brings results, not conflict
  • unraveling old narratives from your thinking process 
  • defining success, and clearing the path for achieving it
  • identifying "energy leaks" in your life, and repairing them
  • maintaining prosperity consciousness and a success mindset
  • knowing your competition, and resisting the comparison trap
  • allocating your time with others in a way that supports your goals
  • I am my business; my business is me: clarifying your personal brand identity
  • unraveling negative reactions to people and situations (not taking things personally)
  • mind/body balance: reducing body tension for increased creativity and productivity



Think of Performance Coaching as support in resetting your own internal thermostat for success. Perhaps your thermostat is set too low - coming from your belief about who you are, what you deserve, what you can do, and so on.

When the thermostat setting is too low you will only achieve so much in life before you trip the setting and stall out at that level. But what if you could raise that setting to a higher level? What if you could push past that self-imposed limitation to achieve what you've always wanted for yourself?

You can, and I am here to support you with that.

How long is this coaching program?

ANSWER: The package contains four in-depth coaching sessions and three check-in laser sessions. You can schedule the in-depth sessions once a week, once a month, or somewhere in between. The frequency depends on your goals. The package is good for three months from registration.

: Do we meet on Zoom for all our sessions?

ANSWER: Yes, we meet on Zoom for all the sessions. Login information is always provided in the two reminder emails that come one day and 1 hour in advance of our session.

QUESTION: How do these 80-minute coaching sessions work?

ANSWER: Think of these sessions as in-depth strategy meetings. We will take a close look at the steps you've taken toward your goals and the obstacles or hindrances you are facing as you move forward. We will unpack the mental blocks and limitations and brainstorm ideas for overcoming the obstacles you face. (This is the area where true change takes place.) We will work together to assign new homework to keep your momentum going.

QUESTION: How can I best prepare for my coaching sessions? I want to get the most out of our meetings.

ANSWER: Completing your self-assigned "homework" is the primary way to prepare for your next session. Secondly, prior to our session complete the SESSION PREP FORM to organize your thoughts and focus on what's most important to you.

QUESTION: How do I share my homework with you?

ANSWER: Bring your homework to our next session. We'll discuss it then, and we can do a screen-share on Zoom if there is something we want to look at together.

QUESTION: Is the homework time-consuming and complicated?

ANSWER: The homework is something that we both agree on. It's usually about taking steps to move you forward with what you're aiming to accomplish. Generally, your homework is about exercising the confidence to try things a different way. Other times, your homework will be about making lists or journaling observations. (If you get stuck on the homework, I'm just an email away.

: What is your coaching style?

ANSWER: Direct, caring, and professional.

QUESTION: Is there a payment plan?

ANSWER: No, I've never had one for this program and there likely never will be one. If you're determined enough, you will find a way to do this in one payment. (PayPal credit might be a good choice.)

: After my 8-session package is over, what if I decide that I want ongoing coaching support for a while longer?

ANSWER: You can renew the 8-session package as often as you wish. You can even set up a recurring payment if you'd like to "set it and forget it," until you pause or cancel.
