Executive and Career Coaching
Maria provided me with valuable assistance in my transition from my long-term position as a high school counsellor to become a leadership coach with the Yukon Government. She helped me align the job description to my skill set which made it easy to determine what the employer wanted, and see where my skills and experience matched. Maria also assisted me in creating the material and mindset that helped me nail the interview and get the job. If you are looking to switch careers, do yourself a favour and hire Maria as your career coach!
Maria Lironi was beyond helpful as a coach. She helped me identify and break through personal barriers that were limiting me in my personal life and work. I have learned to cope with and better manage feelings of being overwhelmed and excessive behaviors/characteristics as a result. If you are looking to identify your strengths and work on personal growth, Maria is a solid coach—a real person in every sense—and her listening skills are superb. I recommend Maria highly.
Maria helped turn things around for me at a critical point in my career. I’m now in a role that engages and challenges me, while providing professional development opportunities that align with my overarching career objectives. In short, I’m happy. I look forward to going to work each day and I love my team. I can say without reservation that Maria was instrumental in helping me achieve my professional goals, and working with her was one of the best on the job decisions I’ve ever made.
Maria’s ability to target my productivity block from a high level and distill it into actionable and effective steps was genius! The advice and resources she shared has repositioned and reframed my perspective from a disempowered place to one of inspired action and transformation.
I found Maria to be a competent and insightful coach. Her intuitive questions and gentle but direct approach helped me to get to the heart of the professional issues that I wanted to tackle. Hearing Maria’s reassuring voice every week was a great encouragement and helped make our conversations flow. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Maria will definitely benefit!
I approached Maria with a tough issue regarding which direction to take my business. I was spinning my wheels and I needed clarity. With Maria as a coach, I walked away with a strategic path forward and accountability markers to help me get there. No longer spinning my wheels, with Maria’s help, I am now devoting my precious time and energy to the things that I excel at. Maria has a contagious tenacity that can help anyone take their career or business to the next level and a seemingly unending supply of creative solutions, connections and resources. Without a doubt, she’s worth every penny.
Maria coached me on finding and getting to the next step in my career. We worked on job finding and interview skills and I just have to say she was fantastic! It had been seven years since my last interview and she assured and empowered my confidence. She helped me create and anticipate interview questions and patiently worked with me to develop answers for them. We also worked through different question structures and how to phrase the answers. It increased my comfort level when it came to speaking and reduced my nervousness. Needless to say, I got that next step in my career. When it comes time for another leap, Maria will be my first call. Thanks, Maria!
Coaching for Writers
Maria Lironi was my writing coach for my best-selling book Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Less of What You Don’t as well as my copy editor for my book Trade Show Tips. As such, she added sparkle to my words and helped make each book a success. I value the skills, energy and enthusiasm that Maria has brought to my projects and would wholeheartedly recommend her services to others.
I have always prided myself on being a good writer—yet I find that Maria has a fascinating way of making my writing really pop. Her touch is gentle, but wow, what a difference she makes to the impact of my message! She is trying to gently “train” me to do this by myself, but somehow the interplay between us is almost too magical to give up.
Working with Maria Lironi has been a joy as well as a great benefit. I met Maria in 2002 while writing my book Law of Attraction for Business: How to Create a Business or Attract a Job You LOVE. The book was a two-year project and Maria fulfilled many roles as my coach, editor, teacher and friend. I knew she would take my writing to a whole new level; I just didn’t know how many levels she would take it to! Working with Maria was such an empowering experience that ten years later I’m back for more!
Maria’s feedback gave me a better awareness of how I was presenting myself on both a personal and professional level, and she provided me with very specific instructions on how to improve my LinkedIn profile. I feel extremely confident that if make Maria’s suggested changes, I will have a polished and professional LinkedIn profile that helps me attract more business opportunities.
I highly recommend this service. I worked with Maria on editing and reworking my LinkedIn profile to reflect where I'm at in my career today. I've recommended Maria several times, and will continue to refer to her services.
Maria's focus and experience made this an invaluable service for my business. I was unsure about how to approach LinkedIn successfully and she took that weight off my shoulders. I highly recommend this service for anyone wanting to step up their LinkedIn game.
I love the new LinkedIn profile that Maria created for me. It’s a clear, purposeful, and detailed presentation of who I am and what I have done. Now I’m confidently sharing my profile with potential clients and using LinkedIn for my business. Maria is the first person you should call if you want a LinkedIn profile that attracts sales leads and customers.
Before I started working with Maria, my LinkedIn profile was minimal and unfocused. Now my profile has a clear purpose and it’s easy to see what I offer professionally. I can use to confidently market how I’m able to help others.
Prior to working with Maria my profile was outdated and useless. The new profile that she created for me is much more engaging and pretty cool. It sounds like me, reflects more of what I am actually doing, and gives me a professional presence on LinkedIn. Now that I have this great new profile, I’ve been using the platform more and even had one of my articles featured on Pulse. I would happily recommend Maria for anyone who needs expert and value for money advice on their LinkedIn presence.
