Mary Speaks


Recently as I was preparing to do a speech to a leadership graduation class I discovered something about my coaching process.

I decided to use Scrooge from the Christmas Carol as an example of a bad boss’s transformation to good boss. I went back and read the Dickens classic and realized what Jacob Marley did with Scrooge is what I do with my clients.

I invite my clients to take a trip back in time and describe for me when things worked for them at work. I look for patterns in roles, types of work, values, and structures. We then look at current reality – what’s working or not now. Then we go and explore possible futures based on the current trajectory. Is this where you want to end up?

Through this standardized and validated process I have successfully assisted over a 1,000 clients through a reinvention, rediscovery and renewal process and set them off to experience life to it’s fullest. The goal is always reaching full potential.

In every situation there is something working. You don’t need to find your life’s work you are doing it.

Create Your Leadership Legacy– Graduation speech for the 2014 Copper Cap Graduation at Hill Air Force Base in June.

Living Your Life on Purpose – AARP volunteer appreciation day, 40 minute leadership talk presented to a large group of engaged and passionate retirees.

Develop Your Life Purpose Statement – led 25 participants in Bard’s Women’s Leadership Program. As I always say, you don’t need to go find your purpose your already doing it.

Non-Verbal Communication in Interviews – Park City Career Network, incorporating NLP and mBit. Participants were recorded and were able to watch and analyze their non-verbal ques.

Career and Life Strategies for Today and Tomorrow – 5 week group discovery focusing on life purpose, passion, values and hypothesis building.

I just wanted to thank you for the career classes and workshops. I was able to figure out what my passion is. I started a new job as an event planner about 2 months ago. I plan large and small events for military families. My job is challenging, but it is also rewarding. You are one of the few people that actually believed that I should be an event planner. Several people, including my own family, told me that it wouldn't be a good career for me. I'm glad that I didn't listen to them. I am so glad that I have started this new career and I look forward to advancing my career to new heights. Thanks so much for the career coaching!
