Client Reviews

I believe our ability to introspect improves and we course correct ourselves in many areas of life. While that is good, it is also true that it becomes hard to change oneself and overcome bad habits, biases, etc. For years I would listen to inspirational talks, read self-help books and articles, etc. While those inspire one in the moment, they seldom help with making long term changes.

Enter Mary! I loved the approach of first identifying my top 5 strengths and 5 weaknesses and then coming up with a plan to work on those while also making sure they are in line with my overall goals and daily to-do’s. This is work in progress, but I feel I will be able to enhance my strengths and overcome my weaknesses, with Mary’s help. A structured approach, with someone who can keep you honest is the right way to work on oneself.

Mary’s industry experience is a huge plus. I would highly recommend Mary for your coaching needs!
