M.G. – President, Healthcare Benefits Company
Mary Ellen, you are incredibly gifted.
Through our coaching I have become a better leader – I’m more focused, productive, and on track with achieving my business goals. Revenues and profits have increased, and I have more time and energy to enjoy my life outside of work.
You bring your energy to each and every call and it’s contagious. I love it!
You have the wonderful ability of being able to truly listen and get into my headspace. You are both resourceful and knowledgeable. You analyze information and can deliver it back to me in a manner where I have greater understanding. Hmm, guess that means you also have an analytical side. Who ever thought that one could be creative, imaginative, insightful and analytical all at once? Amazing!
Brett Hodson, President & CEO
My experience with Mary Ellen was outstanding.
I was looking for someone who had an understanding of business, experience working in a corporate environment, and could work with me during a period of significant change in my business, and more importantly, significant change in my life.
At all times, Mary Ellen was focused on helping me find ways to improve through thought-provoking and meaningful questions and challenges. In terms of availability, she was able to accommodate my very busy and challenging schedule. And after every discussion, I left with a sense of enthusiasm and looked forward to our next opportunity to explore ways to efficiently move forward.
I would definitely recommend Mary Ellen to anyone looking for a personal coach, looking to develop their potential or looking to excel.
Through innovative exercises and accountability, Mary Ellen helped me plant the seeds for my new business. Additionally she provided me with various tools to help reduce distractions and focus on one thing at a time. She did all of this with humor, warmth, intelligence and a good kick in the arse when I needed it.
Dan Wolfson, Freedom 55 Financial
Mary Ellen is a very innovative and empathetic coach. She helped identify and compartmentalize the gremlins that barred my way to personal achievement. Working with Mary Ellen helped me meet my income goals, brought focus to my priorities, and balance to my life as a whole.
Jill Korstrom, Fisheries & Oceans Canada
Mary Ellen has an uncanny knack for helping people look at work and life issues from a different perspective, leading to frequent “ah-ha” realizations and insightful revelations. Her techniques made it possible for me to achieve sustained positive behavioral change, which improved my life immensely. I highly recommend her coaching services.
Kate Nielsen, BC Non-Profit Housing Association
Before I worked with Mary Ellen, I felt as if I was wandering around in circles. I knew I needed to move forward… I just didn’t quite know how. Mary Ellen prompted me to look within myself and to recognize what my intuitive voice was telling me. Mary Ellen’s enthusiastic, heartfelt and non-judgmental approach gave me the gentle guidance I was missing.
Michelle Young - Administrative Director, Georgia Strait Alliance
Last night was my first major presentation EVER. I co-presented “Closing in on Sustainable Salmon Farming” to an audience of 125 at the Courtenay Fish & Game Protection Assoc. The presentation went really well, and I was not even that nervous. There are definitely things to improve upon, and more confidence will come as we are touring this speech around for a few months.
I just wanted to thank you profusely. I can’t even explain how much you helped me. I’m actually excited to do these speeches, and feel worthy of taking people’s time. It helps that I’m really thrilled by the topic, and it is exciting and new stuff that many people have not heard of (closed containment for BC salmon farms).
Thank you again for coaching me. You have given me a new level of confidence, and even, choke, Gahahhckk! Joy! in public speaking. I did not even think that would ever be possible for me. Although I enjoyed Hollyhock a ton, and learned so much from everyone, this is by far the most direct benefit to my job from that experience. Thanks a million times over.
Lori O'Connell, Copywriter
Mary Ellen got good and curious about what I do and the motivations behind it. Armed with this knowledge, she was able to fine tune my focus, helping me to realize my goals faster.
Matt Sullivan, Sullivan & Associates
Before I started my sessions with Mary Ellen, I didn’t have much faith in the Coaching experience. I was stunned by how much it changed my life. Despite running a business I enjoyed, I felt stagnant in my life. Mary Ellen helped me evaluate and celebrate my life as it was, while clarifying the direction I was going and developing the tools to get me there. Vague notions became life-changing realities. I encourage anyone who wants to bring focus to their life to give her a call.
Lesley Braby, Italy
Mary Ellen – Working with you was a lot of fun & extremely insightful. The exercises we did helped me think through and define my priorities more clearly. I particularly found the visualization exercises helpful in overcoming some bad habits and changing behaviours! Thank you for your help.
Software Marketer, Toronto, ON
Mary Ellen’s ability to articulate my thoughts and directions and deliver feedback in an interesting yet humorous manner was motivating and inspiring. It was wonderful to finally be able to ‘be’ in the moment and surrounded by clarity in an arena of chaos.
