We all have people we meet along the way, connect with and know we adore. As we share what we are up to we create a vibration and lock into areas of compatibility.
I met Natalie through her Sister Ashley who is an amazing woman and is now one of our Auratherapists. Natalie knew we'd connect and using her intuition and big throat chakra came by the store to introduce herself. We connected instantly, she is a force of nature and her energy is magical and inspiring. Want to learn more about this executive coach and leadership expert. Read on!
Q: Tell us a little bit about you, your company and your company's mission.
A: My name is Natalie Micale , and I am a professional executive coach, leadership expert, and communication consultant. With over 20 years of experience as a leader, manager, and executive in the healthcare and government sectors, I have seen first-hand the gender and racial disparity between those who perform the vital work of patient care, and those who make the decisions about how that care is delivered. Motivated by my desire to find effective solutions to these inequalities, I became deeply involved in the creation and facilitation of personal and professional employee development programs in healthcare institutions.
As an executive coach for women in leadership, I now guide women in all industries through the process of discovering their authentic leadership style, developing unshakable confidence in themselves, and communicating their own powerful leadership messages with honesty, authority, and respect.
I have a master’s degree in Management, Strategy, and Leadership, and am trained through the College of Executive Coaching, and am a Certified Professional Career Coach. A native of Metro Detroit, I now live in Asheville, NC with my husband, Matt, my daughter, Chloe, and our two rescue pups, Violet and Oliver.
Q: What is your superpower? Tell us about a moment you recall that your superpower served you?
A: I am excellent at seeing a person's intention behind their message. This manifests itself as an expert communicator, specifically when it comes to navigating high stress, high emotion situations. By refusing to take almost anything personally, I'm able to maintain a true outsiders perspective in those situations, allowing me to guide myself and others through the circumstances, rather than getting tied up in it.
Q: What are your rituals for self-care, healing or de-stressing? Is there a special place you go?
A: I love journaling and writing. Magic happens when you just allow yourself to write without judgment. I live by the tenet of the "shitty first draft", which applies to actual creative writing for the intended purpose of other's consumption just as much as it does to journaling. I'm also a total book nerd and have as many as 6 books going at any time. Additionally, I do high-intensity workouts several days a week not because I'm one of those people who'll tell you they love it, but because I know for me, focused effort in one area of life begets focused effort in all areas of my life.
Q: With which Chakra do you most identify and why?
A: Tie between Crown and Throat. Crown because I'm not even a fraction of my true self without my intuition and owe a lot of my success as an executive coach to it, and throat because for better or worse, I've always been able to express myself.
