1:1 Leadership Coaching + Executive Coaching

Whether you want more, know you are made for more, or are transitioning into more, coaching helps you remove the barriers, get unstuck and unlock your next level of leadership.

Leadership Learning Labs

Leadership Learning Labs are our development workshops and training shouldn’t be boring and stuffy. They should be a place to get creative, explore possibilities and be inspired.

Team & Group Coaching

Developing people at all levels of the organization is important to ensure you have a leadership pipeline - that's why Marisa offers Team & Group Coaching.

Speckled Background

you are probably asking yourself...

WHY ARE WE HERE?

  • For every 100 men promoted from entry level to manager, only 87 women are promoted, and only 82 women of color are promoted. (Source: McKinsey, Women in the Workplace 2022)
     

  • 41% of women say they do not self-advocate enough or at all, citing the main reasons as shyness/anxiety, fear of retribution and fear of being labeled as “aggressive” (Women in the Workforce study by Luminary and Indeed, 2022)

WHY AM I HERE?
  • You are tired of living and leading on autopilot. You want more.
     

  • You know you are made for more.
     

  • You want more. More impact. More meaning. More purpose. More clarity. More depth. More trust. More connection. More joy. More confidence. More freedom.

I’m two months into my new position and loving it, all because I took a chance on coaching!

 

A few years ago I started feeling unfulfilled in my work. I ignored it, blaming it on transitions in my life, like becoming a new mom. But soon, I was just going through the motions and not being as successful as I knew I could be.

 

Marisa asked uncomfortable questions I had previously avoided. She gave me considerations I had not thought of. She left me reeling with ideas, possibilities, and a renewed curiosity and excitement I haven’t felt in a long time.

 

A little under two hours later, I had a plan. Three months and a little courage later, that plan became a reality when I started my new career in project management.

 

So for those hesitant about coaching, take a chance! There’s nothing to lose and you never know, you may end up realizing a passion that excites and inspires you every day.

By October 2023, I had reached a breaking point with my nonprofit career. Nearly two decades of dedication left me feeling burnt out and overwhelmed, unable to face another challenge. 

 

Seeking a lifeline, I scheduled my initial session with Marisa. With each session, I experienced a weight lifting off my shoulders, a renewed sense of hope blossoming within me. I regained confidence in my ability to tackle challenges and honed my skills in time management, energy preservation, and task delegation.

 

Just the other day, I confided in my partner that, for the first time in years, I wake up excited to work. Instead of resigning myself to defeat, I now approach obstacles with a spirit of brainstorming and problem-solving.I've managed to overcome burnout, and now I can recognize the warning signs when I'm nearing that state. I've gained a deep understanding of my inner critic and can identify when it's trying to undermine me. I'm mindful of my thought patterns and how they can contribute to burnout. Plus, I've developed techniques to proactively prevent burnout and steer clear of unhealthy habits. 

Marisa's coaching breathed new life into my passion for the nonprofit sector, for which I am profoundly grateful.
