People I've Supported Through Coaching
I am a senior manager working in city government. Marleta helped me with an employee exhibiting problematic behavior and consuming too much of my time. Her skills in communication were invaluable to me and improved my communication and boundary setting with this team member.
I have known Marleta for over 10 years. During this time, she has assisted me on both a personal and professional level. Having run three businesses with over 22 staff at any given time, her input to assist the management was crucial at challenging times. On a personal level I have encountered several challenges both physically via a cancer event in 2009 and emotionally with this thing we call ‘life’. Marleta was there as a firm but gentle sounding board to guide me through what sometimes seemed insurmountable. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a coach in any work environment or to my family and friends.
I am grateful to Marleta for her guidance over a three year period while I was progressing to a higher management role. She assisted me in identifying my strengths and learning to trust in my instincts, increasing my confidence as a leader. Her insights into reading behaviors and language of my team and the message behind them has been the most vital part of her coaching. My own skills in identifying team members’ strengths and how to apply them to the organization’s expectations has developed me as a leader who develops other leaders.
I will always be grateful for Marleta’s help during some of the worst days of my life. I was able to talk to her about things I have never been able to tell others. Her compassion, wisdom, and non-judgmental approach was very unique and enabled me to get perspective on my concerns and make choices.
