Steve-MacDonald-headshot“I’ve worked with Mary Key for nearly 7 years, as facilitator of a CEO Forum I participated in, as a corporate coach for me personally as well as several engagements for my team. Her advice and her willingness and desire to hold me accountable have created enormous value for me personally and for my company. We have used her for engagements ranging from moderating strategic planning, developing scorecard systems, managing our growth curve, managing conflict, one-on-one coaching and CEO development. Every engagement has been extremely well thought out, delivered in an understandable and motivating way and followed through with months of accountability directly with my team. I give Mary my highest recommendation.”

Mary provides the breadth of experience and the skill of bringing out the best in people to facilitate concrete outcomes.”

It is with great pleasure that I can readily confirm that, with her intuition and deep empathy, Mary Key is the ultimate people person. Her track record as a coach for successful business leaders is second to none.
