Executive Leadership & Coaching
“Laura and Maria developed and delivered a customized life planning session for my Virginia Council of CEOs group. It’s not easy to come up with a life plan in one day, unless you spend an inordinate amount of time preparing before the event, which they did. Our participants were engaged by this interactive format and the group came away with a clear and concise plan to implement into their daily lives. We were grateful for their expertise and professionalism.” ~Neil Gilliss, MBA, CFP, President at Canal Capital
“I enthusiastically endorse Maria for any corporation looking for leadership training and executive coaching that will listen to your needs and provide a unique, impactful, and transformative service for your team. Of the many coaching firms I investigated for our program, they stood above the crowd. Their personalized program delivered all my main objectives for my group including team building, self-mastery, enhanced listening skills, and increased confidence in professional interactions.”
~ Randall Curnow, MD, MBA, FACP
"Laura's ability to connect with others is what sets her apart as a coach. I have had the opportunity to have several coaches and Laura is one of the best! She has an ability to help you see what is deep within and her natural and authentic self makes you instantly feel comfortable. Laura helped me move past my own personal roadblocks and helped me see my true potential. I would highly recommend Laura for any coaching - both personal and professional."
~Laura Drummond, Global Client Executive, Cisco Systems, Inc
Maria's coaching has challenged me to lead with intention within the workplace, focusing myself and others on key objectives and reducing noise which so often gets in the way. I've developed a stronger vision of myself as a leader by identifying strengths, and facing some blind-spots which were holding me back. As a result, I have strengthened my working relationships within and external to my organization, while increasing effectiveness. Executive Coaching with Maria has been foundational to the advancement of my career and personal achievements. I will continue to highly reccmmend her to others."
~ Julie A. Delay, Senior Director of Human Resources, Cornell University
I have now used Laura's executive coaching twice - the first time when I found myself at a career crossroad with two options, where she helped me figure out the path to go. The second time I was stuck in a more substantial way. For the first time in my life I didn't know what was next. I had lost my path. Something in me shifted, and I knew that in order to find my path again, I had to discover my "why." Her gentle, yet powerful questions made me search for answers deep inside myself. And the answers I did find, in the most unexpected and profound ways. Through Laura's guidance, I have discovered that I have always been whole and complete, but my true self was just buried and needed to be unearthed. With Laura's help I have also found my "why," in such an Eureka moment that left me stunned. With that knowledge and discovery, I am now well on my path again, calm and confident. Should I get stuck again - I know I can call out to Laura for her gentle guidance.

With wit, compassion and sincerity she helped me identify and focus on what's most important in my life, and in the process, identify my life's purpose. She's a wonderfully intuitive person and gifted executive coach. I can't recommend anyone more highly.”

"Laura opened my eyes to what’s important to my career within Cisco. I continue to use her coaching expertise as I navigate my career and prepare for future roles. Most importantly she helped me understand what’s valuable to me personally and professional. Identifying my core values has helped set my career in motion with purpose and determination."

"Executive Coaching with Maria has been a journey that has changed my life. When a professional roadblock resurfaced, she helped me discover the direction in which I wanted to go. Coaching helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses and to embrace both. This process has made such a profound change in my life, I am exploring going into coaching myself. If you are at a crossroad, there is no better person to walk you through than Maria Glenn."
