Using the EVOLVE Methodology for Your Personal Transformation
A 12-week, live-led online course on Personal Transformation – COMING SOON!
Why This Course?
At some point, we all need a little help bridging the gap between our goals and the daily actions that get us there. One way to do that is with a coach. Just like in sports, a coach can be there to ask you the tough questions, push you harder than you would push yourself, hold you accountable, and provide an outside perspective on what is and isn’t working.
While not all of us have the time, money, or inclination to invest in a personal coach, some of us need or want more interaction than you can get in a book. For that reason, I have created this course. This course (based on the eBook of the same name) will help you transform your life and become your best self.
The course is way more than just me telling you what’s in the book. We will spend 12 weeks together, defining Who We Want To Be, reflecting on Who We Are, developing action plans to help close any gaps, and supporting each other as we take actions to get there.
If you have goals outlined for yourself, or you just know you are ready for a change, even if you haven’t quite defined what that change is yet, this course is for you.
What You Bring: You bring a level of energy and commitment. You log in each week, participate in live webinars, post questions and feedback in the course discussion boards, and take actions that you commit to.
What I Bring: Over 20 years of experience helping people change their behaviors and achieve their goals, the step-by-step methodology we will follow to help you achieve your goals, various self-assessments, tools, and tips and tricks to support you along the way.
Together, we will crush your goals and you will end the 12-weeks with clarity around Who You Are, Who You Want To Be, and the action plan to get there. But, in addition to a plan, you will get support and encouragement from me and your “classmates” to achieve action during the 12-weeks, meaning you will leave the class having already taken major steps to achieving your first goals.
Change is my thing. Not only did I get my doctorate in human and organizational learning, I have over 20 years of experience in private, public, government, and not-for-profit organizations. My speciality is building organizational culture and driving transformational change within organizations. Most recently, I led a cross-functional team of directors in restructuring and aligning the organization around a new business model and philosophy. I’ve also helped organizations deal with the cultural impacts of merging two organizations into one, adjusting to a new CEO after the founding CEO left, and transforming the culture from a traditional office-centric culture to a much more dispersed workforce with very little assigned seating at all.
Yes, I use my knowledge of people and change every day to drive results in organizations and improve the bottom line. However, what does that have to do with you?
Well, for years, I kept my proclivity for annual planning in my personal life…personal. I would steal some time away at the end of every year for a mini retreat so that I could update my five-year plan and determine my top goals for the year. I honestly thought everyone did something similar.
Only once I started coaching individuals did I realize that almost nobody actually did what I did for themselves. What might be common sense to me because of my background in organizational transformation, was foreign to everyone else. When people saw me accomplish goal after goal that I set out for myself, they thought I was just super smart and driven. Some of my friends even thought I was born under a lucky star.
The truth is, I’m not special. I just figured out a long time ago how to define my goals, create a compelling future vision for myself, and create and execute a plan to get me exactly what I wanted for myself.
After years of pleas from others to share how I do what I do, I have finally put it down on paper. This is what I do personally each year. How I accomplished every personal and professional goal I have had for myself. These are also the concepts I use when I coach clients one-on-one. My hope is that this book will help you create a compelling vision for yourself, gain focus, and achieve your goals.
This course follows the EVOLVE methodology to help you achieve your goals:
Evaluate the Current State.
Vision for the Future.
Organize the Plan.
Learn the New Behaviors.
Value What’s Important.
Evaluate and Adjust.
Within the class, we will share several self-assessments, worksheets, and exercises to help you achieve results. The class has been designed to be as customizable as possible and the week’s content will be personally tailored, based on questions and where the group is in the process. The only thing you need to achieve Who You Want To Be, other than this class, is yourself, your time, and some sort of electronic or paper journal.
What Others are Saying…
“I have had the privilege of working with Mary over the past 4 years as a performance coach. Mary has helped me to identify and achieve far-reaching professional goals, while balancing parenting a young child and cultivating nourishing personal time. Mary’s coaching approach combines psychology, change and leadership theory, as well as adult learning, with the practical-know-how of a seasoned manager, and through this unique technique, she has enabled me to navigate both management consulting and academia, as a doctoral student. Mary has taught me how to successfully manage conflict constructively and to set realistic boundaries based on environmental and stakeholder needs, as well as my own needs (professional and personal) to execute with precision and strength. Mary’s committed, kind, no-nonsense style has been nothing short of excellent over the years that I have worked with her. I highly recommend Mary as a performance coach.”
—Rita M., coaching client
“I’ve invested many years attending conferences, reading books, and conversing with motivational speakders across the country. I’ve applied their techniques and experienced minimal results. After engaging wih Mary, my perspective has been adjusted and I have experienced positive change. Mary is a committed coach with an uncanny motivation for helping people transform their lives and experience results. Her fresh approach helps people experience a healthy balance of personal and professional success.”
—John C., coaching client
