I don’t always work alone. I often work with a network of International Coaching Federation affiliated professional coaches, medical specialists, business consultants, mental health and leading edge adult learning experts. Their knowledge helps me to tailor my coaching and leadership development programs so that I can meet your needs or the needs of your organization.


I’m known as a resilience expert and a professional relationship coach. I am the principal and founder of the Gabor Strategy Group. I am also a founding member of the International Association of Coaches IAC, a member of the International Coaching Federation ICF, the regulating body of the coaching profession, and am affiliated with Know-Inc. And somehow I found time to judge coaching research for international ICF conferences.--

I founded Separation Support Service, the first comprehensive one-stop crisis management social service for families experiencing matrimonial difficulties. The service became a division of the Family Service Association of Metro Toronto. This crisis management model consisted of volunteer-led support groups, legal advisors and social and psychological support referrals. This model has been adopted throughout North America as a basis for service delivery to families in crisis. I was a guest on television and radio shows and featured in news articles over 100 times during my tenure with this vital service.

Since completing my doctorate at the end of 2000 at the University of Toronto, I have become an internationally recognized coach and speaker; I love to talk in-depth about the characteristics of resilient people and the secrets of good leadership through excellent interpersonal relationships. My doctoral research into the characteristics of leaders, managers and entrepreneurs who survive, thrive and win their game in the midst of workplace change is the basis of my upcoming book.

I am a qualified teacher of children and adults; I hold a BA in history from York University, a Masters of Education in Curriculum, Teaching and Learning from The University of Toronto and a PhD in Education with an adult education and leadership curriculum focus from the University of Toronto. I received my professional coach training from Coachville and then specialized in executive and leadership coaching at the Coach Training Alliance in Colorado. I am also certified as a Relationship Coach by the Relationship Coaching Institute of California. I know about worklife balance – I’m a professional with a busy personal life as a wife, mom and stepmom of 5, volunteer, avid swimmer and photographer.

Today's managers, professionals, and entrepreneurs are hiring coaches to help them with time management, a change in career, or balancing their work and personal lives. People are looking to coaches as sounding boards and motivators who can offer a fresh perspective on career and life problems — but without the conflicting agendas of a spouse, family member, or even a mentor.
