“Creative” Marcie is creative in her approach to coaching and doesn’t go by the book. She looks at your unique situation and works with you to address your short-term and long-term goals. She is willing to challenge you on your thinking and provides real life examples, articles, and other readings that illustrate common situations and helpful suggestions and solutions. Coaching with Marcie has been a great value. I look at my managerial and leadership role from a different perspective. It’s given me confidence to carve out a path for the future and move towards it through the things I’ve learned.

“Laser-focused” Marcie has a laser focus, enabling her to be an amazing listener. Her referrals and suggestions are always on point. She’s the best cheerleader you’ll ever have because she cheers for you from the heart. Whatever you’re working to accomplish, be confident that it will happen. Marcie knows her stuff. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat. Anyone fortunate enough to receive Marcie’s input will walk away transformed into a better human being. She’s that good.
“Gifted” After less than an hour with Marcie on the phone, I came to a HUGE realization after doing almost a decade of personal growth work. Marcie innately was able to guide me to my answers within and NOT answer FOR me. She is gifted in being able to gently work with me “where I was at” and helped me get “unstuck”. Thanks, Marcie! I am forever grateful!

“Non-judgmental” When I first decided to meet with a life coach, I was miserable and thought that I was going to change every aspect of my life: quit my job, change careers, move to a different city, and maybe end a relationship. After working with Marcie Stern as my life coach, I made an even bigger change – my attitude. I am in the same job, same city and same relationship and finding my peace and balance. Marcie helped me to focus my goals and identify my values. I learned that happiness came from the inside, my state of mind, not from external forces. I recognized a pattern of blaming my “life dissatisfaction” on where I lived, who I was with and what I did and realized that I would remain unhappy until I gave myself permission to honor my values and to take responsibility for my own negativity. When I opened myself up with hope in my heart and a positive attitude – wonderful opportunities presented themselves and amazing people came in to my life to help me on my journey. Now I realize, the first amazing person that came in to my life was Marcie. Marcie is supportive, non-judgmental, open, warm and encouraging. She does not lead you on your destination, but helps you to open the door and walks alongside you while you choose your own path and direction. I would encourage anyone to choose Marcie to walk alongside them on their own life journey.
“Life-changing” Just meeting Marcie has changed my life; the confidence she gave me and the encouragement she taught me to give myself has helped me get over the hump I knew that was holding me back from a successful career. I had this instant connection with Marcie, she creates a safe and supportive environment and knew exactly what I needed to overcome my negative self-talk and be the success I always knew I could be. Thanks to her great recommendations and her own positive encouragement, I was able to put some concepts into action with immediate results. Marcie is a person you want to have in your corner, she is truly amazing with people.
“Invaluable” Marcie was invaluable during my decision to change careers. I was an Engineer by schooling with 15 years of experience in Construction Management. I decided that I was not being fulfilled in my present position and wanted to “Love” what I do for a living. Marcie helped me understand what I needed to do to in order to make a successful transition into my present position with a firm that can utilize my previous talents while pursuing my true talent of social interaction. When I first came to Marcie I felt like a new puppy, not knowing what direction I needed to go and more importantly how to get there. With her help and feedback, Marcie was able to show me what I needed to do in order to find where my true talents lay hidden.
“Invaluable” The work Marcie and I have done together has been invaluable. I worked with her for 5 months to redefine my work persona and how my co-workers perceive me. Marcie helped me clearly identify my core values which was beneficial inside and outside of the workplace. She also provided tools and strategies to set boundaries and see situations from other points of view. As a result, I am much happier and fulfilled inside AND outside the workplace.
