We Are GC3

The majority of the 7.5 billion people on this planet, because of their geography or demography, do not currently have the opportunity to reach their full potential. That’s just plain wrong. Add to that the fact that our world is facing an uncertain future, with many social, economic and environmental challenges threatening our very existence. Now, more than ever, we need to unleash all human potential if we are going to thrive together here on earth.

Trillium Fox, ACC, CPC

Trillium has coached, trained, and consulted for thousands of individuals, executives, and
teams across diverse organizational levels and industries. Prior to co-founding the Grilled
Cheese Coaching Co. which specializes in helping busy HR Leads at high-growth tech scale-
ups solve leadership development challenges, she gained 15 years of experience in different
roles across corporate America and spent the majority of that time as a leader in the HR and
Talent Development fields. Trillium also dedicates her time to furthering the coaching and HR

“Trillium has an uncanny ability to connect with people and use her coaching skills to make
them better managers”

– Prabodh Joshi, EVP Global Product Development

“Trillium guided me with different tools throughout our work together, always finding just
the right exercise for me when I got stuck. She modeled an astonishing capacity to listen
and stay right with me, even when I myself got lost in my own thoughts. In the process, I not
only learned how to better help myself, but also learned a lot about how best to coach
another person — an unexpected benefit as I plied the lessons I’d learned and ultimately
moved into a new coaching role.”

Kate Mason, Business Systems Analyst

“Trillium is a rare breed of HR partner; one who quickly builds strategic, trust-based
relationships with key business customers and becomes indispensable to the teams with
which she partners. She is able to do this through her ability to understand the business
priorities and desired outcomes, ask the right questions, leverage her OD and Talent
experience and work across the entire organization to align HR and talent strategies and
programs that drive results.”

Kieron Connelly, CPCC, ACC

With more than 25 years of business, technology and people experience, Kieron has always had a passion for unlocking potential in people and organizations. Co-Founding the Grilled Cheese Coaching Company has given him the opportunity to leverage that experience and build on that passion to help some of the world’s fastest growing mission-driven companies to increase their impact in our world. Kieron lives with his wife and two teenage sons, along with a cat, two dogs, three chickens and a bearded dragon in Brighton, UK.

Kieron and I worked together during a period of high growth at Benchling in 2020 and early 2021 (this was also, of course, during the COVID pandemic). Through our coaching sessions, Kieron provided invaluable guidance to help me improve as a manager in a rapidly changing organization. Beyond helping me grow my management skills, Kieron helped me become, simply, a happier employee. By helping me examine my goals as a professional and as a person, Kieron made a lasting, positive impact during a difficult time. I couldn’t recommend Kieron more to anyone looking for professional coaching.

I used to have a very skeptical opinion about coaching sessions before I had the opportunity of working with Kieron. All our meetings and conversations felt light and very natural to me, it was like talking to a friend who always had the power of leading me to think through important things that I had never stopped to think about before. I was able to grow as a professional, understand and reflect on my humanity, my goals and life purpose throughout our sessions. And besides of being a great coach he is a wonderful person!

Ann Leuth, ACC, MBA

The journey to authentic, conscious leadership and ultimate well-being
Ann Leuth is an ICF ACC dual-certified Executive and Wellness Coach that specializes in
leadership development, Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i 2.0), work-life balance and wellness. Ann
works with executives in high growth environments to break through the boundaries that hold
them back from maximizing their potential and leadership skills. A leader may have great vision
and strategies, but without the ability to create change, communicate effectively, and motivate
others to follow, brilliant strategies can fail. Through a process of self-discovery and committing
to personal responsibility, individuals are able to see themselves and others more clearly,
providing direction in challenging situations. By serving as a sounding board for honest
conversations within a safe space, Ann assists clients with their journey to authentic leadership
and enhanced emotional intelligence.


Ann combines career and business goals with a wellness vision that includes a healthy mind and
body. How we move our body, fuel it, manage stress, and balance our emotions impacts our
ability to lead. When a leader is physically well and mentally focused, they can act with
conscious intention to achieve peak performance in both their personal and professional life.

Experience

Ann has over 25 years of business and coaching experience across multiple industries. Having
spent many years in high pressure situations as a consultant and business owner, Ann brings real
world experience and perspective to her coaching expertise. Ann has consulting and coaching
experience on strategic issues, mergers and acquisitions, and in multiple functional areas with
Sea Change Growth, McKinsey & Company, and Key Corp. She has also owned a successful
manufacturing business that achieved strong growth and profit margins since inception.
Interests
– Board Member, A Doorway to Hope, Cary, NC. Non-profit supporting the working poor.
– A strong believer in the power of mindfulness, Ann practices yoga, meditation and loves
spending time in nature.

– As a sports enthusiast, she can often be found on a tennis court, golf course or in a gym
outside of work hours.

Associate Coach

Dahlia Hanin, ACC, CPC, MA

My primary focus is helping professionals find their paths as leaders. To help them develop skills
evoking positive change within themselves and their work environment. From the age of five I
knew that I wanted to be a psychologist. After earning a BA in Communications Theory and
Research, I realized that I wanted to continue my education and pursued a Masters in Counseling
Psychology. At the time it wasn’t my calling and I went back into the Advertising/Marketing
field and spent 25 years there — but I always felt there was something missing. After some soul
searching, research, and yes – coaching – I returned to my roots and trained at IPEC to become a
COR.e Energy Coach (and couldn’t be more thrilled.) Now with coaching I get to combine my
love of helping clients uncover and reach their best selves, with my deep knowledge and
experience in the industry. I’m here to help all who seek more fulfillment and success with their
current role…and beyond.


WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING


“I hovered around the idea of working a coach for a long time. Circumstances conspired to bring
Dahlia into my life, and all of my ambivalence vanished after one session. Dahlia is my dream
coach with her generous spirit and razor sharp observations. She is such a talented listener, and
she does so without judgement. She lifts me out of confusion by reflecting my thoughts and
wanderings back to me in a more clear and concise package. It is with that clarity that I can start
to make new decisions for my life.” — Marissa K.

“When I came to Dahlia, I had conflicting directions of what I wanted in life – both personally
and professionally. While working with her, I was able to take a deep and insightful look into my
own thought process, which pushed me to figure out what I truly wanted. I love that I came to
my own conclusions as Dahlia helped me navigate those thoughts with challenging self-
examinations. I now feel confident making my own decisions moving forward as I know which
powerful and meaningful questions I should ask myself in certain situations.” — Laura C.

Sylvia DeMott, ACC, LICSW

As an ICF-Credentialed Coach and licensed therapist with over 15 years’ experience providing
therapeutic support to high-achieving corporate leaders, Sylvia has the knowledge and expertise
to assist leaders to achieve their full potential.
Typically managers and leaders come to me because they’re experiencing self-doubt and holding
themselves back, and they’re wanting to make a bigger impact. Sometimes they even find
themselves second-guessing their interactions with others and worrying about how their efforts
and performance are perceived. Often, they struggle with perfectionism and anxiety.
Does this sound familiar to you? If it does then I can help you.


I have helped hundreds of leaders, like you, to harness their energy and mindset so they can:
► Feel confident in their abilities to lead and manage others from an authentic and grounded
space.
► Feel empowered to speak their mind and ask for what they want and need – whether it be at
work, at home, or in their child’s classroom
► Navigate and manage conflict and complex situations directly and skillfully without
withdrawing, conceding, or having to be right
► Be open and receptive to feedback without self-judgment
► Trust their intuition and judgment so that they can feel more confident
► Step into their true leadership potential, take decisive action and delegate the tasks that are
draining them of time, energy, and happiness
► Feel fulfilled, valued, and recognized for their accomplishments


Why YOU want to work with me:


> You will experience a safe space to experiment and play, where you can share what is on your
mind in confidence without any fear of judgment.

> You will be encouraged to try new things and see things from new perspectives, and learn
about yourself. You will be able to take this curiosity and openness into the areas that matter
most to you.
> You will gain clarity on your inner values and how you can express these values authentically
in your work and life, so that you can experience greater fulfillment, meaning, and purpose and
make a bigger impact.
> You will gain a clear understanding of how specific levels of energy are showing up and how
to shift them so that you’re accessing your highest potential as a leader of your own life, and of
others.

“I am so grateful for Sylvia and her expertise. I appreciate that she has formal training and
experience as a therapist and a coach. She is one of the most experienced coaches I’ve worked
with.  She truly knows how to focus exactly on what is keeping me stuck as an ambitious, highly-
driven woman professional and entrepreneur.” -Lachelle Wieme


“When I think about what makes a great coach It is a combination of 1) unparalleled listening
and empathetic skills; 2) strategic mind, combined with humble yet tenacious approach; and 3)
drive to serve others.  Sylvia possesses all of these qualities and I am so fortunate to have
benefited from her incredible guidance and support as an Entrepreneur and also during my Wall
Street career.” -Paula Doroff

Who I am: I am an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have worked with international clients in Coaching, Training and Facilitation for over ten years. I am British, and I have lived and worked across several continents (Asia, Europe etc) before building a life in Spain. I specialise in partnering with international leaders and managers to take their skills, team, and company to the next level. With a background in psychology (BSc), I am interested in how, by changing our mindset and behaviour, we can drive positive outcomes at work and home.

What I do: Through Coaching, I partner with clients to increase their awareness, responsibility, and empowerment at work. I strive to promote lifelong learning and independence to bring fulfilment and success in the workplace. I want everyone I coach to be challenged and impacted into action. I dare all of my clients to think bigger than their status quo, so they do not wake up at 65 and wonder what could have been.

What to expect: I work with people who are open to challenging themselves and learning. I will hold you accountable to make changes based on what you really want to achieve, both professionally and personally. Through compassion, I connect with people to make sure everyone has a fair chance to succeed.
