Marion brings a balance of compassion and pragmatism to his coaching that is unparalleled. I first reached out to Marion to guide me through a difficult leadership transition. He was a beacon of hope in a dark and challenging time. He pushed me to question my fears and find my strength. Marion blends the professional and personal in a manner that allows the coachee to elucidate his/her overarching life goals and create an action plan around those. Marion is firm and fair, reminding his coachees to stay on track, identify derailments, and push through adversity. I am thrilled about his new book!
