I sought out the opportunity to work with Mary Beth as a way to focus my professional development on increasing my impact within my organization. Our work together centered on enhancing my leadership skills and executive presence, and on building stronger relationships with business partners and advocates. Over the course of several months I was able to gain visibility and strengthen my perception among senior executives, enabling me to create the more significant impact I had been seeking, on behalf of my function and the team I lead.

Mary Beth is one of those leaders that listens, practices compassion, and asks thoughtful questions to uncover the challenge and then identifies the opportunity. She does this with humor & honesty. I reported to Mary Beth earlier in my career and she helped shape me to become the business person I am today. Without her guidance and wisdom, I would not be where I am in my career and, more importantly, know where my true strengths and passions lie. Mary Beth and I have kept in touch, but when I found out she was Executive Coaching, I asked her to partner with me since I was going through a career transition and needed her help. She’s incredibly gifted at helping you find your truth and is not afraid to push you to uncover your strengths, weaknesses & passions. I will always lean on Mary Beth in my most challenging moments as the voice of reason AND inspiration.

With Mary Beth Parks as my coach, I was able to discover and take action on a key element missing from my life. Without her support I would not have given myself permission to go down a new road. I can’t thank her enough!
