What Mary’s Clients Think

“Mary is a great sounding board for a wide range of individual and organizational issues that are tough to discuss with anyone else. Because of her coaching, I am able to think things through to create far better solutions than would otherwise be possible. As a result, my company’s organizational infrastructure is in much better shape, our business is expanding, and my life keeps getting better. It’s extremely exciting and gratifying.”
Chris Halpin, President, Celtic Energy Connecticut
“We all can use a good coach to help us hone our game, think through our mission and how our day-to-day actions serve that mission. Mary Gorham has helped me think hard about my goals and how to achieve them, as well as what kind of business person and human being I’d like to be.”
Andrew Winston, Author of Green Recovery, Co-author of Green to Gold, and internationally renowned sustainability thought leader, speaker, and advisor
“Mary brings the perfect balance of intelligence, thoughtfulness and enthusiasm to her trainings. Rather than just offering up time management tips and tricks during her workshops, Mary finds a way to get attendees to think critically about their mind set during the day and make transformative changes to the way they work. Her expertise and presentation style will help to make you more effective and less stressed.”
Patrick McKenna, Training and Membership Services Coordinator CT Association of Nonprofits
“Mary knows how to walk the delicate balance between listening and providing a gentle prod on the one hand, and calling you to the carpet on the other, definitely an asset in the coaching business.”
Rob, Education and Management Consultant, Maryland
“I interviewed four leadership and organizational coaches and Mary stood out for her understanding of both organizational structures and interpersonal dynamics. I, as well as our division, need to be in alignment for maximum results. Mary has been providing the support and guidance for all of us to gain maximum synergies so we can meet our goals.”
Sarah, Director, Jonathan Rose Companies, New York
“Even nearly two years after working with Mary, honing practical and aspirational leadership skills for a new role, I still revisit the advice and techniques that I learned from her.  Most helpful has been an ability to re-center on my goals, and the various techniques that she taught me to catch myself mid-thought stream and ‘listen’ to the situation to be most effective in interactions with others.”
Anne Haynes, Former CEO, Economic Development Corporation of New Haven, CT

Who I Coach


Who I Coach: 

I coach successful leaders to make important changes so they can do their work more effectively- as an individual, with a team, and with an organization. The people I work with care deeply about creating environmentally sustainable, socially just, spiritually fulfilling, and financially sensible results. They include Executive Directors of nonprofit organizations; Presidents, VP’s and Directors of mission-driven for-profit organizations; leaders in Education and Foundations; as well as individual social entrepreneurs. While their fields are varied, they share a passion for making a positive difference, and want themselves, their teams, and their organization to operate at their best.
