To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.

Hi, I’m Cheryl Zalieckas

Communications Coach & Leadership Strategist

After 20 years of facilitating effective team building and leadership in the healthcare industry, our school systems, within families, at small businesses, and beyond, I’m on a mission to bring harmony to all teams. 

We spend two-thirds of our lives interacting with people at work, at home, in friend groups, and in our communities. When communication breakdowns happen, they can devastate productivity, progress, and collaboration. 

Using a system of three science-backed personal assessments, I help leaders step into their power and help teams of any size find harmony in effective communication.

Connect with me

A few years ago, Sandra reached out to me for help bringing harmony to her team. Sandra was a teacher working with a staff of 18 fellow teachers and administrators at a mid-sized elementary school.

When she first described the problem to me, she expressed frustration. She loved her work, but there was a constant, unyielding sense of tension and stress at work. Coworkers didn’t trust one another and everyone seemed unnecessarily tense at work. Sandra had worked with me through Personal Enlightenment Consulting and knew that the work we did could help improve the overall team dynamic at her workplace.

I was asked to be the guest speaker for their Professional Development Day. I kicked things off with my signature intake process. Together with Sandra, I reviewed the School's Annual Progress Plan and I was able to tie in their two main goals – which ended up including empathy and conscious discipline – with the work we did together during the 90-minute facilitation.

During our 90-minute facilitated session, the discussion was groundbreaking.

Each of the participants expressed feeling seen and heard for the first time. Additionally, participants were able to change the way they approached conversations to improve their communication and collaboration.

One teacher participant said, “It was very helpful for me to understand the styles of some coworkers and hopefully I will feel less judgmental and less stressed!” Another said, “Now I know me better, which will allow me to be a better person. Also knowing someone else’s results allows me to change my approach to them.”

The team’s dynamic changed almost instantaneously. Following our session together, each team member reported feeling “less stressed,” “more empathetic,” “better able to communicate with others,” and “at ease at work.”

A few weeks later, Sandra sent me a card describing her experience:
...I’m not exaggerating when I say it was      the best professional development EVER    in my 36 years. I seriously have NEVER seen our staff so relaxed, engaged, and NOT on THEIR PHONES! We are all better with understanding ourselves, thanks to you. What an awesome experience!

Sandra’s results and that of her team are typical! This is what happens when you allow yourself to leverage the tools to provide insight and externalize conflict.
