Evolve Through Coaching

Your partner in helping you to become the best version of yourself

Are you ready to do the reflection to define Who You Want to Be… and take the actions to get there?

Start with a free tool to guide your reflections… and then set yourself up for success with a proven performance coach

COVID 19 UPDATE: Now that most of us are at home trying to find ways to stay sane and entertained, there’s no better time to devote some of your quarantine time to figuring out your passions and creating a plan to achieve your goals. I know this time can drag us down. The ambiguity and anxiety can work together to really derail our efforts. The best way to regain some of that control and clarity is to make a plan and get excited about your life again. If you are a leader who is still working from home, know that your employees are going through the same thing. Reach out to me. I can help you work through how to keep your team productive and focused while also giving them the space they need to process everything that is going on. We are in crazy times, but we will get through it together. Please stay inside, stay safe and healthy, and let me know if I can support you in any way.

I want to congratulate you on taking the first step by asking for support. The willingness to take action, even a small one like checking out this page, puts you ahead of a large group of people.

Whether you are just starting out in your career, or have “arrived” in your career and are looking for ways to make your day-to-day more fulfilling and meaningful, I can help!

I work with people in all aspects of their career or business to help them achieve their goals. My philosophy is a very pragmatic one.

I’m all about continuous individual improvement by examining and improving on your blind spots (we all have them).

I’m also all about human and team dynamics. Whether you are the entry-level employee on the team or the CEO of a large organization, building trust and leading without relying on positional power are skills that will take you far, and will produce gains in the bottom line.

Much like a performance coach for a professional athlete, it’s not my job to do the work for you. And, I won’t promise you can “make 6 figures in 30 days”. Instead, my job is to ask you the questions to move you forward, be the mirror so you can examine and fix your blind spots, and provide frameworks to help you achieve your specific goals.

This doesn’t mean we won’t track your goals and get you results!

It does mean that you are responsible for putting those reflections and frameworks into action to get the results you desire. The results you achieve are directly related to the efforts you commit to the process.

Are you ready to take the first action? Download the free 13-page workbook. There are 7 reflection activities to walk through that will help you move forward. Going through the workbook will give you some actionable insights about yourself.

Once you get the workbook, I will send you an email from my personal account (that I check and respond to daily) so you can reach out if you’d like to schedule a free 30-minute consultation and talk about a coaching engagement customized for your goals.

7 Surefire Steps to Align Your Life to Your Passions and Get Clarity on Who You Want to Be

Whether you are looking to further your executive career and want to define a powerful professional brand, or you would rather work to live and are more concerned about life balance and personal goals, this workbook can help guide your reflections to develop a clarity you might not have felt before. There’s nothing worse than “arriving” at what is seen conventionally as “success” and then realize it’s not where you want to be. Use this workbook to:

  • Guide your reflections and take a hard look at what you truly want for your life
  • Create a vision of “Who You Want to Be” that can guide your decisions as you move forward
  • Develop a plan, and routines, that support your vision and ensure you get there

What is Included in the Workbook?

For the sake of transparency, I’m including an overview of the activities in the workbook. But, don’t think too hard… take action! Download the workbook (it’s free!) and do the exercises. See what revelations you have – you’ve already started taking action by arriving here, don’t start overthinking now!

About the Author, Mary Barnes

I am a proven leader and coach with a passion for helping others change to be the best version of themselves.

Because I believe people are the key to success in any organization, I focus on empowering leaders to achieve their desired result by focusing on human dynamics and organizational behavior at all levels.
