Lesley-Ann MarriottSenior Consultant & Executive Coach
Lesly-Ann is a performance driven, coaching evangelist. No stranger to the executive suite, she became an executive in her mid-twenties in the competitive world of big box retail. Lesley-Ann’s clients are highly complex and intense individuals whose life is anything but normal. She knows what it takes to live in the extreme. Last summer she cycled across Canada and has run 125km mountain marathons with a very small headlamp.
She has invested thousands of hours in coaching senior leaders and their teams. Described as the CEO’s coach, “Whom do you go to when everyone comes to you?” Lesley-Ann’s unique blend of backbone and heart creates a space for leaders to be bolder, more authentic and to empower those they lead.
She has facilitated hundreds of corporate partnerships at the most senior levels of the world’s largest food companies – Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, and Nestle. Contracts in excess of $50 million and managing sales of over $2.5 billion were negotiated based on dynamic, collaborative partnerships.
Senior leaders and independent business owners work hard to get to the top and often feel that they are carrying the load themselves. These leaders are fueled by the challenge to be the best; they are driven to grow and develop. Lesley-Ann helps these leaders connect with their talents and exceed their own high standards, and most importantly bring others along with them.
Today, her clients include a roster of Executive Directors, Board leaders, Vice Presidents, CEO/CFOs and business owners who face a range of challenges: strategic development, launching new businesses, managing conflict, managing global/cross-cultural teams, improving the effectiveness of their board, identifying and developing their star performers, creating a team that is engaged in the company vision.
