Coaching with Mary Lee

At a certain level in leadership, everyone is smart, experienced and highly capable; those traits are no longer differentiators.

You are already a leader and have mastered the traditional SMART method to reach your goals.  But, you have come to realize that the higher one advances in an organization, the more important strength of character and emotional intelligence become.

Individual character is the big differentiator.

It’s your emotional, cognitive and interpersonal skills that matter – not just what you can do but how you do it.  

That’s why we created the New SMART Leadership Executive Coaching Programs.

New SMART Leaders are focused on: 






Employers know that skill acquisition is easier when these traits are already in place. These five focus areas are not specific to industry, size of company, education, background, or experience. They are the foundation for building your self-awareness and ability to self-regulate no matter what the situation. They are the backbone for engaging healthy relationships, teams and respect.  They instill confidence, executive presence and a certainty that draws people to follow and trust you.

The end result of having refined these new SMART traits is executive presence, happiness, and ease. 

It’s your emotional, cognitive and interpersonal skills that matter – not just what you can do but how you do it and who you are in the process.  

Strength of character, and the ability to self-regulate and execute determine whether you inspire others to trust and follow you.
