Marilyn O'Hearne

Leaders and teams move from the overwhelm and uncertainty of our rapidly changing intercultural world to clarity, focus, confidence and results with Marilyn acting as their visionary thought partner. When paired with a commitment to sustainability, a quadruple bottom line impact is achieved: people, planet, profit, with a future orientation.

Marilyn’s clients discover and creatively develop their unique strengths and visions, capitalizing on those on behalf of the organization. This leads to not only avoiding burnout and loss of talent but also increased impact and presence. She quickly assesses a situation, using various tools, and co-maps a plan to achieve and sustain goals. “Marilyn is a gentle, spiritual soul, and yet powerful and provocative at the same time,” providing for confident development including Emotional and Cultural Intelligence. Teams describe her as “Sharing Power, Building Trust, Promoting Peace,” resulting in reduced conflict.
