Get Your Eight Step Career Plan

Executive Coach Mary Lee Gannon, ACC, CAE

When you you want to build emotional intelligence, effectiveness, executive presence and influence. Mary Lee has a unique perspective as a 19-year corporate CEO, running organizations worth up to $26 million and as a 10-year certified executive coach. She helps leaders have more effective careers, happier lives and better relationships while it still matters. She guides leaders to triumph over assumptions that hold you back so you may advance despite doubt, stress, bureaucracy, personal agendas, posturing, and the treadmill to nowhere. Success is freedom. Not more hours. If you don't know where you'll be at the end of the year, you're already there.

Executive Coaching that fits your lifestyle.

I'm so glad you're here!

You have been successful in school, business, and have a great family and now is the time to develop your executive presence and effectiveness. 

• You may feel ineffective where it counts, tired, a lack of executive presence, low emotional intelligence or critical thinking skills, judged by age bias - other's think you're too young or too old. The anxiety is exhausting.

• You've may been passed over for promotion. Or you just got one and want to show your value. 

• You may be unable to self-regulate an emotion or behavior. You've been stereotyped and it's holding you back.

• You are mired down in corporate cynicism, personal agendas and bureaucracy. You feel as if all you do is put out fires.

• You are disconnected from your team. You wish they'd just do their job.

• You worry that not only might you drop down a notch on the career ladder, you might get passed up or fall off all together and lose respect, confidence, and income.

Within the next 15 years, nearly 15% of the global workforce may need to switch jobs, according to the McKinsey Global Institute. By 2030, 75 million to 375 million workers will change occupation categories; another 400 to 800 million could be displaced by automation and need new jobs entirely. Workers may not have the necessary skills to transition into these roles. As highly repeatable tasks become increasingly automated, soft skills and emotional intelligence — critical thinking, communication, and collaboration — are even more essential. Request a call to discuss your goals.

Career/Life Transformation at Your Convenience

You most certainly can have a rewarding career in a fulfilling field with a team who admires you while also being happy, enjoying a simplified life and good relationships with the people who matter. 

Move from indecision to the freedom of:

• Executive presence and career effectiveness in purposeful work. 

• Emotional Intelligence: self-awareness, self-management of emotions and behaviors, social awareness, relationship management.

• Respect when you speak, offer an opinion or negotiate.

• Self-regulated negative energy in real time so you don't say or do somethng you regret.

• Confidence, connection, candor and calm.

• A promotion or new career opportunity where people compete to work with you.

• Better mindful relationships in life and work.

• More happiness, sleep, wellness and fun.

At a certain level in leadership everyone is smart, experienced and highly capable; those traits are no longer differentiators. Unfortunately, at this level there are less and less supports for leaders. Doubt shatters progress. More hours are not the answer. That's where I can help.

You will have a plan tailor-made for you (not a general program or tips from a business book or conference) including personal coaching from an International Coach Federation certified coach and 19-year CEO. Do all of this from the convenience of your desk, your phone, an airplane, a subway, a coffee shop, or wherever life happens. Clients are throughout the U.S. One-on-one coaching occurs via telephone. Popular programs include online materials, personal executive presence work and videos. See Mary Lee's testimonials.
