Welcome! I am glad you’re here.

I’m Marshall Brown and for over 20 years, I’ve been helping individuals and organizations “Get Clear, Get Focused and Get Ahead.” As an ICF certified executive and career coach, I have worked with a range of executives dealing with challenges at the office, even as they sought to maintain a healthy life/work balance. I also share with you my dedication to values, core competencies, and the International Coach Federation’s code of ethics. I have helped struggling CEOs, overwhelmed managers and even stressed employees to discover their unique talents, and use these to fuel their efforts in making a lasting impact in all they do. Additionally, I have helped hundreds of individuals boost their confidence, develop a career management strategy and create the career of their dreams! You can do it too!

One year from now, you could still be struggling to manage your team, burned out by tough decisions and sleepless nights, and possibly on the verge of quitting your job. Or, you can be the best leader in your organization – it’s all up to you. Through coaching, I can help you identify core challenges, take action, and finally see tangible results from your hard work and investment.

Count on me to be your partner in your success!

Success Stories


“Words cannot express how much you delivered last week at the WSAE Innovation Summit. You are so natural, authentic and smart. You kept the group engaged. You translated thoughts, ideas and information. Everyone felt they had a voice and were able to engage. This is rare. You are unique.”

“Marshall Brown is an accomplished facilitator. I’ve enjoyed his workshops and training sessions so much that I’ve brought him in to do targeted “in-house” training for my association’s entire staff. His style and approach makes everyone feel comfortable and open to learning, so you are able to maximize the value of the training session to everyone on staff. I highly recommend Marshall as a talented and experienced professional!”

“Marshall is a great coach. Super to work with, very personable, and a true friend. At the same time he is not afraid to challenge your thinking and he doesn’t hesitate to kick you in the ass and hold you accountable when it’s needed, to keep you moving forward. What a blessing it is to count Marshall as part of my circle.”

“You don’t hire a coach to be your friend, you hire a coach to work with you on fine tuning your skills.  Marshall is refreshingly straight forward. He is a dynamo in getting you to focus on how to expand your network day after day.”

Julie Stalknecht

“We found Marshall’s Myers-Briggs workshop of great value as a member relations tool. Having the skills to recognize and deal with different kinds of personality types is critical for staff who deal with a diverse membership, and Marshall’s session helped build such a foundation for our employees.”
