"Throughout my corporate career leading talent management and leadership development functions, I turned to Dr. Marilyn Puder-York when I needed a coach to work with a valued senior executive who needed to change his/her behavior in order to continue succeeding. Marilyn's background differentiates her. She brings deep clinical perspective AND, because she was a corporate executive herself, she understands the "unwritten rules" of organizational life. Marilyn knows what it takes to thrive even in the most challenging circumstances. She speaks executives' language. She's a quick study, with a no-nonsense approach. She uses her laser-like insight to assess situations and individuals; then she guides her clients, providing practical advice, and achieves outcomes that benefit both the individual and the organization."
