Executive Leadership Coach

Mary Ann has worked as an Executive/Leadership Coach, facilitator, and team mobilizer, primarily in the life science and high tech industries, for over 15 years. She has a unique ability to listen deeply to her client’s concerns, clearly identify their strengths, and compassionately speak to what limits their performance.

The foundation for Mary Ann’s coaching work focuses on working with clients using Commitment-based Management (CbM) (listening collaboratively and managing with accountability) and Executive/Leadership Presence (growing one’s ability to influence, engage and lead others while being responsive to change), so that they can articulate bigger possibilities and deliver on them.
