Shelia Collins is an International Coach Federation (ICF) and Accomplishment Coaching-certified coach. She coaches individuals who are looking to move their careers to the next level while simultaneously creating balance. She is especially adept at working with those who have too much to do and not enough time. Her client roster includes ambitious professionals and educators from the likes of Google, Ely Lilly, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty, University California Los Angeles, Baylor University, McMaster University (Canada), and others.
Shelia is especially skilled at working with high performers in examining and understanding what shifts and/or changes will propel them to their desired results, without making sacrifices (health, marriage, family) on the other end. Clients report that working with Shelia has been the catalyst for unprecedented risk and reward. In addition to her private practice, Shelia trains new coaches with Accomplishment Coaching in Chicago.
Prior to coaching Shelia had a highly successful 20 year career in Higher Education as a Dean of Student Affairs and professor at universities across the country including Marquette, Loyola, Texas Tech University, and Chicago State University. In her tenure as a Dean, Shelia was responsible for creating the vision, strategic plan, and budgets for the 12 units and more than 100 employees that reported to her. Shelia worked closely with both internal and external partners to create a supportive environment for students that prepared them for success after graduation.
When not coaching, Shelia enjoys reading and writing. She also mentors youth through her work with Girl Scouts and Southside Growing places. Shelia lives in Chicago with her husband, MC.
