"I am not an internet marketer. I am the CEO of a $24 million organization. Like you, I didn't have time to quit work to learn how to be a top executive or business owner. Here you will fast track your leadership to earn a higher six figure income on a schedule that works for you with more time for yourself and more mindful connection to the people who matter while it still matters."
~ Mary Lee Gannon, ACC, CAE, Corner Office Coach

You move from the heaviness of indecision, lack of confidence and executive presence to the certainty of super achievers with a program tailor-made for you (not tips you can pick up in a business book or class) including personal coaching with me from the convenience of your desk, your phone, an airplane, a subway, a coffee shop, or wherever life happens.

Play big. Be mindful. Feel awesome!

"I’ve not only walked a mile in your shoes – I’ve broken a few heels and changed shoes dozens of times thinking change was enough. I went from welfare to CEO of $26 million organizations and it is my mission to make sure you know the quickest route to get there with confidence, connections that matter and a play big strategy.

I know what it’s like when lack of focus shrouds everything with negativity. You think you have a plan but you don’t know how to execute it. Speed is absent because you can’t nail down consensus with your team. Pettiness replaces problem solving. So you do nothing and the heaviness of mediocrity becomes your new normal. You are stuck and the situation seems permanent, pervasive and personal. My children and I were on public assistance after my divorce and I worried if I’d ever be successful, if they’d ever go to college and if I’d ever find love.
You try new things, the results stay the same and you’re even more overwhelmed.

I had a stack of business and self-help books next to my bed that were up to my pillow yet not much was changing. I mentored under people, took classes, purchased online programs. All this just brought more confusion.

Then the window began to open and I advanced to the C-Suite running organizations worth up to $26 million, created successful businesses, was a highly recruited turnaround agent...

But I noticed, with all my prosperity I was stressed, detached and had little time or intimacy for the things that mattered most to me..

Then I studied and integrated mindful practice into my life and career. Instead of chasing down change, meaningful answers came flooding my way. It’s much easier and happier this way.

My mission is to couple mindful practice and executive level business acumen for you, as I do for my clients, so that you can let go of the things whose time has passed, quiet the noise that drowns out your ability to take the right risks, and transform the get-it-done mantra to high performance results. The instability of playing small without clarity has cost you time, money and peace. My clients find a mindset shift and strategies whereby purpose, profit and passion integrate to fulfillment in work, friends and love.

That’s where life happens.”

"Mary Lee Gannon inspired our board to look at our services in very different ways than we were used to. She guided us through challenging exercises to help us understand what the outside view of our organization was (what the general community may think we do) and how to begin the necessary steps to either confirm that image or to change the views not in line with our goals, vision and Mission. Mary Lee left us with challenging homework, a defined plan stating who is responsible for each area or goal and an excitement to go beyond our current boundaries – real or imagined."

"Mary Lee facilitated a strategic visioning session for our agency’s Board of Directors. This was one of the most engaging board meetings that I have had in my 25 years of nonprofit management experience. Mary Lee includes the many different perspectives of those attending the meeting and asks the clarifying questions to reach consensus and develop a plan for next steps. She is aware of the importance of communication at all levels of organizations and has expertise on non profit funding issues from the fundamental to the complex."
