(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?

I’m a leadership and personal development coach for multipassionate women, leaders with big dreams, and impact-driven organizations who want more without compromise. MORE ABOUT MARISA "Know what sparks the light in you. Then use that light to illuminate the world." OPRAH WINFREY 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. — Becca P., VP in Higher Education 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. — CaraLee M., Non-Profit Executive Director Client Love client l ve "A few years ago I started feeling unfulfilled in my work.

  • ABOUT | MWC Leadership

    marisa ciesluk meet the chief firestarter In 2016, I was at a major crossroads on my journey. At work, I had been promoted to a newly created senior leadership role as a result of organizational restructuring. At home, I had also stepped into a new leadership role- a mom to a baby girl. Have you ever had that feeling where something is off and, yet, you can't put your finger on it? That was me. My soul was restless. My heart was heavy. I was unsettled. As I grappled with these new identities, there was a voice in my head saying “This isn’t it. You’re made for more.” I knew in my bones that was true. Even though I had longed for both of these new roles, I was craving . . . well . . . more. To be clear, it wasn't more material things. It was deeper than that. I had a hankering for more impact. More fulfillment. More meaning. More energy. More congruence. More opportunities to operate in my zone of genius. More space to do the things that fuel my fire. And, most importantly, be more on fire in the work I do and the life I’m living. After dropping my daughter off at daycare and crying all the way to work for more days than I care to count, I decided to own my brilliance, let my light shine bright and do the damn thing I was designed to do, which is transform people and organizations from the inside out by creating safe spaces for people to breathe deeply, reduce the noise, gain clarity, confidence, and courage, and be inspired to take messy, imperfect action towards their deepest aspirations and dreams. In other words, spark the inner fire! Use your voice, your experience and your leadership to spark change for yourself and the next generation of leaders. a bit more about marisa on a personal note A lover of the outdoors, a gatherer of people, and an equal opportunity wine drinker, I am no stranger to a challenge. I have faced my profound fear of heights and summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, completed two marathons, and endured a half-Ironman. An educator at my core and by training; a wife by a long, wild, and winding search; a mama through the grueling journey of IVF; a dog mom by rescue; a world traveler by passion; an entrepreneur by accident; and a leadership coach by calling, I am standing in and living out my truth every day. I am also proof that one can persevere and achieve goals by shifting your internal operating system. a few of my favorite things... still want to learn more? keep scrolling!
