Coaching Style

Mary Lou is passionate about helping individuals and teams make significant transformations in their professional lives, which carries over into their personal lives. She has experienced firsthand how working with a coach can open the mind to some of our self-limiting habits. This increase in awareness and commitment to a focused plan can lead to self-mastery which transforms an executive’s ability to lead, their individual and teams’ performance and most importantly enables improved business outcomes.
