Marisa Murray is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
“Following my transition to a new organization and leadership position, I sought out an executive coach to support my integration. I had ambitious goals and was keen to accelerate my impact but I could already sense some resistance and misalignment beginning to surface. Marisa supported me in calibrating my approach with all my key stakeholders (including supervisors, peers, and direct reports). She helped me experiment with being more vocal, open, positive and/or creative. She helped me transform the way I collaborative, I am now much more inclusive which generates synergy and alignment. It also reduces resistance and eases execution and adoption. Overall, I became a much more effective leader, due to my work with Marisa. I am now moving to a new position in the same organisation and can much more capitalize on what we have worked together.”
Martin Couture, IT Director at Belron Canada
“I reached out to work with Marisa as I was expanding my role to COO at Mirasee. During our one-on-one coaching program, I found myself growing in so many ways including my confidence, ambition, and effectiveness while at the same time feeling more relaxed, excited and better able to navigate uncertainty. Marisa is a genius at getting people to think differently, change behaviors and believe in a bigger version of themselves, using practical tools and drawing on her extensive business experience.”
Bhoomi Pathak, Chief Operation Officer at Mirasee
“I engaged in an executive coaching program with Marisa shortly after beginning a global change management leadership role. At the time I was struggling with the sheer volume of the activities I was responsible for. Marisa supported me in structuring and managing priorities and how to deliberately and confidently prioritize my time. She also helped me enhance my collaboration skills with my team to enable more bandwidth and leverage. Marisa taught me so many valuable tools and truly refreshing perspectives that changed the way I lead.”
Dany Hebert, Senior IT Director, Change Management and Communications at Saputo Inc.
“After interviewing more than 10 coaches, I selected Marisa to support me as I transitioned into a new AVP role within a new organization. I was seeking support given the significant portfolio and complex leadership transitions anticipated within the organization. Working with Marisa not only supported this transition but also provided so much more value in terms of my leadership development. I benefited from her significant experience as she helped me gain even greater self-awareness and instilled a new level of confidence that supported me in tackling a number of emerging issues. Her coaching program assisted me in focusing on my performance and ensuring my own accountability. My goals have become increasingly more aggressive and the standards I set for myself are higher. I also learned the power of activating sponsorship to further increase my impact. If you are looking to grow as a leader, develop your team, and realize your full potential I highly recommend connecting with Marisa. She is an award-winning author, a sought after key note speaker, trainer and coach — more importantly, she is passionate about her work and her clients!”
Ryan Rodrigues, AVP Advancement at Queens University
“First session with Marisa Murray was very powerful! I thought of it every day now. Looking forward to the next session. Thinking differently ;-)”
“I was skeptical at first on how on a first meeting and in just 1 hour I can have a meaningful coaching session. I was proven wrong. We dove right into the topics that I had identified and Marisa was prepared with solutions after just a few additional questions in order to understand my situation.”
