what leaders SAY

Here’s what leaders say about our work.

The Supportive Accountability Leadership™ training content is phenomenal! The leadership team thoroughly loved the session I delivered using the Facilitator’s Kit. They all said it was by far the best training they've received so far in our internal training program, and we had already delivered six months’ worth of great training content. The material strummed up some great conversations, and we had some major breakthrough and powerful moments as a team. I 100% recommend the Supportive Accountability Leadership™ Facilitator’s Kit!

Sylvia, I cannot thank you enough for your passion and dedication to building strong leaders. Your book will be critical to the development of our emerging and aspiring leaders at the North Texas Food Bank. You’ve gone above and beyond in your support of our journey and we know the impact Supportive Accountability will have on our food bankers.

Sylvia Melena pays attention. That attention goes deeper than why you "think" you are asking for when coaching with her. I told her about what I felt was holding me back, and she replied with one simple sentence. That sentence was a miraculous course correction in my professional life... Her years of experience will save you time, energy, and money. She wants to see you successful and authentic in your craft or career and she doesn't hold back the flood of insight she has. She is a powerful mentor and I count myself blessed to have worked with her.

I love it! As a new supervisor coming into this role, I feel I’m absorbing as much as I can. It’s definitely provided a different perspective for… when dealing with staff with different personalities.

(Sylvia) is very truly passionate about performance management, which I think makes all the difference. Not just because it comes across and it makes you more inspired to learn, but because when someone’s passionate about something, they put in that extra effort.
Dane Crockford, Ph.D., Incoming Manager
Family Health Centers of San Diego
I love the workshop that Sylvia has presented! I am very into HR and performance management… I definitely recommend the workshop for anyone that’s struggling to find resources for the problems that they see, and they want to make a change.
Blanca Romero, Census Regional Manager
NALEO Educational Fund
As a first-time author, I hired Sylvia to guide my Amazon strategy... She knows her stuff and is extremely thorough. It's rare that I attend a presentation and immediately hire someone from it, but it happened in this case. I guess there's a first time for everyone?! But seriously, I highly recommend her. She is one of the most knowledgeable and tenacious consultants I have ever met. And she sends all her deliverables neatly in spreadsheets that you can reference for months going forward.
