About Marion



As a Master Certified Coach (MCC)** since 2006, and a Professional Certified Life Coach (PCC) since 1998, Marion is a former faculty adjunct teacher at an internationally known coaching school, currently teaching her own unique program that offers ICF CCEUs and ACSTHs (Approved Coach Specific Training Core Competency Hours towards certification or renewal of) Laser Coach Your Way to Sustainable Success – Intensive––a 12–week course emphasizing masterful coaching skills (formerly known as Learn HOW TO Coach). She facilitates two (day and evening) ongoing Mentor Practicum Groups, two of the few supervision/mentoring groups for coaches (ACSTH and CEUs).

See the side panel for free samples of Life's Little Lessons OR to purchase all 100+ lessons in BOTH audio and text. (Recommended for all coaches.)

Aside from coach training and mentoring, Marion finds it critical to maintain individual coaching clients. It's through her clients, that she is richly rewarded as they move closer to their vision. She has worked with clients in large corporations dealing with the stresses of the workplace as well as clients who want to get into (or out of) a relationship. She loves working with clients who are experiencing a conflict or struggle in any of their relationships: boss, employee, co–worker, significant other, family dynamics, etc.

Marion is a gifted coach who is exceptionally dedicated to her clients and is sought after for her laser–like approach and direct communication ("…The wisest voice, the consistent wisdom, the real deal…") She is well trained and brings vast experience to her work, and she continuously helps people change their lives and reach their potential. She has been interviewed on television for her coaching expertise. She has been a featured guest speaker and presenter at meetings and retreats throughout the northeast, is a recurring lecturer for an ongoing Women's Series, and has been cited in The Journal News and The Wall Street Journal.

More recently, she serves as a supervisory coach and examiner for developing coaches in the University of Texas executive coaching program. In the past, she served as an examiner for the Columbia University Coaching Certification program. She presented four of the Coaching Core Competencies at the Annual ICF Conference. Executives from the following corporations have sought Marion's coaching expertise: Abbott Laboratories, Exxon–Mobil, Reader's Digest, Toys "R" Us, Pepsico, AT&T, Prudential, JP Morgan Chase, Kraft Foods, Maryknoll Brothers and Sisters, and the US Tennis Association. She coaches executives as well as entrepreneurs to hone their leadership qualities, enhance communication skills, and strengthen interpersonal relations and is in demand for her laser approach and direct style of coaching.

Marion is a co–author of 7 Simple Secrets to Successful Workshops and provides consulting services for the design and delivery of workshop presentations on a global basis. For 12 years, she attended the School of Practical Philosophy that emphasizes putting philosophical principles into practical terms. She is a member of ICF – New York City Chapter and has a Master's Degree in Business and in Education, co–founded a healthcare publishing company, and taught High School Business Education.

**To date, less than 1% of all coaches in the U.S. hold this distinguished credential granted by the International Coach Federation (ICF). There are currently over 40,000 coaches worldwide of which ICF has over 26,000 members in 114 countries.

Philosophy About Coaching

Coaching is a way of guiding people to see things from a new perspective, have new experiences, and a way to see "what's possible" as opposed to what has happened.  Through coaching, I help people attain their desires and meet their needs by setting and achieving realistic goals so that their lives become more enjoyable and more enriched.  It is a way for me to help each individual person create more peace, harmony, and satisfaction in the world.

How I Work With Clients

Initial consultation by telephone – 30 minutes (no charge).

Subsequent appointments – Either: 45–60 minutes, 30 to 45 minutes, or 30 minutes (varying fees), weekly telephone sessions.

E–mail (unlimited), free crisis/triumph phone calls between sessions.

The Ideal Client:

The ideal client wants to improve his/her life by making positive changes and is willing to share, be truthful, and is open to new possibilities and experiences.

Someone who puts themselves last…

Anyone with interpersonal relationship challenges (boss, co–worker, family dynamics, romantic relationships, etc.)

Hone leadership qualities

Enhance communication skills

Someone in a new position who wants to acclimate effectively

How Would A Client Benefit From A Coaching Experience With Me?

Using the Structural Alignment™ method* of coaching, there is a constant check to make sure that truth, vision, and purpose are aligned and that your internal desires align with the external reality. As a result of this coaching method, you become aware of new perspectives and new ways to experience yourself.  In addition, you gain an appreciation of self–importance and your value to those around you.

Examples of successful clients:

Left a bad relationship; Got into a healthy relationship; Changed jobs; Became entrepreneurs; Got married; Returned to school; Retired comfortably; Gained perspective on family dynamics; Learned skills to adjust to new boss; Gained better parenting skills; Got promoted; Developed leadership skills; Developed managerial skills; Enhanced interpersonal skills; Balanced work/home better; Improved all communication; Gained confidence and self–esteem, etc.

*Structural Alignment™=Aligning truth, vision, and purpose
