J. Oliphant, Board President, Unity of North Kitsap.
I met Grace MacLeod twenty years ago when I was Director of Organization Effectiveness for GTE (now Verizon). A part of my job responsibility was Leadership Development for our top executives –finding the best external courses for them to attend to enhance their leadership capacity. The Executive Development Intensive was such a program and Grace was one of the presenters and individual facilitators. I personally attended the week long program before recommending it to the executives to ensure it delivered as promised. It did! The overall theme was “leading from the inside out”. As a leader, in my own right, I discovered some “core beliefs” that were hindering my own effectiveness. Subsequently, we offered the course to over 30 key leaders. Their professional lives were changed as they found the connection between inner self knowledge and leadership. They returned from the program with renewed self -confidence along with concepts and skills they were able to put into effect with each other and with their direct reports. They found themselves to be more focused and attentive to all aspects of an issue, relying on an intuitive sense that had been fostered. They felt more resilient and able to handle “surprises”. Many of them reported that their personal lives had been enhanced as well, especially in relationship to their spouses and children.
Grace’s and my professional relationship then turned into a friendship which I treasure to this day. Over the years (from time to time) I have contracted with her to be my personal coach, helping me get in touch with an inner aspect of myself which seemed to be eluding me. I am in that inquiry with Grace now. I accepted the presidency of a volunteer organization earlier this year and am finding the stress to be more than I had anticipated. She is helping me work from “the inside out” to uncover the source of my stress and relax into this new and different kind of leadership position. With her skillful and quiet facilitation I am able to use both my head and heart as I am becoming the leader I am capable of being.
Grace is an excellent teacher, facilitator, and most of all a personal coach skilled in helping un-cover hidden assumptions and core beliefs. She helps you find your own inner wisdom and heart space, while providing conceptual frameworks and skills – thus making positive change possible.

“I have worked with Grace MacLeod over a year, both as a couple with my wife, and solo.
For anyone needing coaching, counseling, an “outside perspective” on doing life in a business or personal relationship, I highly recommend Grace to that seeker.
Grace is highly knowledgeable, competent, empathetic, caring, yet a professional who is highly trained and competent in getting the best out of you.
As an “alpha” male, I cannot thank Grace enough for opening me up to become a better husband, business leader, and Christian man. I am most certain to say, for anyone who has the chance to meet and be with Grace in her teachings, a profound, positive impact will take place upon their soul.”

Grace has changed my life. She has taught me skills that help me be present with myself and to like myself better. She has a vast repertoire of counselling skills with deep insight and compassion. I have moments of pure joy in my life for no reason as a result of her work. I am able to find spiritual peace. I can not recommend her enough.
Grace changed my life. I have had my company for over 15 years since I worked with her. I will never forget the weekend I hired her and the awareness and visioning that has come to fruition! Thank you Grace.

I have never known a better counselor than Grace. She led me through the darkness of my fears and anger and loss by being there all the way. She is a woman who knows it all and leads us beyond it all. Blessings to her and all she works with. I would not be here now without her special knowledge and strength.
If you want true healing, please take this blessed angel into your consideration. She won’t let you go to your darkness alone, she will help you find your way home within your true home.
Carolyn Roberts, Owner at Allowing The Light
Grace MacLeod has helped me to more fully awaken the True Light that I AM, by empowering me with tangible tools that I can do on my own and most importantly with her love. I am much more aware of the separate, but connected part of what encompasses me that is called my Spiritual Essence/My Higher Self and the actual feeling of this energy. I now can feel this energy (“her/it”) and can tune into “her/it” with more ease.
When you are ready, Grace is a wonderful teacher and counselor to assist you in healing so that you can begin to become more whole and truly experience each moment with more Clarity and Grace..no pun intended 😉
