At Synergy Consultants, we’ve been helping companies of all sizes, from small business owners to global conglomerates, optimize the performance and leadership of their people and make the changes needed to achieve desired outcomes. For more than two decades, Fortune 500 companies, healthcare organizations, non-profits, educational institutions, entrepreneurs and individuals have partnered with us to ensure that they arrive at workable, effective solutions that provide them with clarity and focus.
Coaching helps executives, rising leaders, and business owners cultivate the skills they need to succeed in today’s fast-paced, dynamic work environments. Our full suite of programs is designed to instill them with greater confidence and empower them to perform at their highest potential.
In many ways, success today is about finding order in chaos. As the world moves faster and becomes more complex, it’s getting even harder to think clearly. Through team coaching, your people are able to gain greater awareness, apply new perspectives, eliminate obstacles, and fast track results.
The skills of great leaders and influencers are learned, not innate. Yet the ability to move and motivate people is essential to success. Our workshops, keynotes, assessments and other high-impact programs energize teams and move individuals toward greater effectiveness and performance.
Mary Ann "Skipper" also works with individuals on their own personal challenges and development.
“I am so happy to be working with Mary Ann. Our meetings are excellent and the last one was our best yet! Mary Ann is terrific to work with. I highly value her positive contributions to my personal life and to the company as a whole.”
“I was a tremendous skeptic before beginning coaching with Skipper. Through working with her, I was able to reshape my leadership practice, understand the way my words and actions were heard by others, and achieve a more mature, more contemplative style of leadership. The growth that I experienced through coaching has helped me love my job again, and the changes were absolutely noticed, commented on, and appreciated by the team that I serve. I am more than converted from a skeptic to a devout believer in the power of coaching.”
“Thank you Mary Ann as you have taught me and my team so much. We are using so much of what you have taught us. I could have never done this without you!!”
“Thank you so much for your all of your help last year. It provided a lot of clarity and gave me a vision to be proactive and come up with a plan.”
“It is a pleasure to work with Mary Ann. She has helped me to focus on the right stuff and align my personal values with our business future. She always does what she says she will do and just as important holds me accountable to do the same. If you want to grow personally and professionally I highly recommend that you engage her. You will be glad you did.”
