It is a great honor to tell you about Marilyn, whom I met at the ATD International Conference and Exhibition this past year. I attended Marilyn’s one-on-one career coaching session as a worn-out professional who knew she needed a job change, and after just 45 minutes with Marilyn, I left confident and inspired to make that change. Marilyn is a great listener and I felt like she genuinely cared about me; she “got” me. Until recently, Marilyn had no idea how much of an impact she had on me in that moment, but long after I boarded that plane back home to NY, Marilyn’s words keep ringing in my ears and her action plan was at the forefront of my everyday activities. I am now happily employed at a different company, and I can confidently say that this would not have happened without Marilyn’s empathetic words and listening ear. Even during some of the most trying times over the past few months, the memory of Marilyn’s words comforted me. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Marilyn is truly blessed. Her advice, compassion, and support will impact your life in such a profound way, just as it has impacted mine. Marilyn is a career coach by trade, and a people coach by passion.
