"Brenda Zalter-Minden is brilliant. Brenda teaches solution focused coaching for the University of Toronto & Adler School of Psychology continuing education programs in Toronto. At a conference last November I saw her do two 15 minute coaching demonstrations that impressed me with their simplicity and power… and I’ve heard rave reviews of her teaching."

"Brenda cultivates a space for people to be vulnerable, honest, hopeful and solution-oriented. Always solution-focused, Brenda asks powerful questions that helps people to gain greater insights into their beliefs, assumptions and judgments. As a facilitator, Brenda’s energy, passion and creativity enrich the learning and self-discovery process for all participants. Brenda is one of the most skilled and talented professionals I have ever worked with and I would have no hesitation in recommending Brenda as a coach, trainer, facilitator or consultant."

Her effervescence and solution-focused perspective gives her clients power to exceed their personal and professional goals. In our complex and changing environment, Brenda coaches and mentors her clients to lead and transform the healthcare system through positive influence and a solution-focused perspective.

Brenda: The FROG whisperer.

It is very difficult to express the role that Brenda has played in my personal and professional growth and development. She has led me on a journey of discovery, allowing me to challenge my assumptions and become confident and compassionate in all that I do."

"I invited Brenda Zalter-Minden to teach family medicine residents about Compassion Fatigue and Breaking Bad News. She was organized, interesting, evidence-based, responsive to my needs for these sessions, and she actively engaged the residents.

I attended her Solution Focused Coaching workshop myself, and it was exceptionally well led - practical, stimulating, and responsive to the various needs of the group members. We had a lot of opportunity to practice within a well-organized framework. In addition, to watch her conduct a brief coaching demonstration is to be impressed by the simplicity and power of her approach to the client. She’s one of the best teachers and coaches I’ve had the pleasure to work with!"
