Explore. Decide. Go.

This is the essence of coaching, as I practice it. If you want a coach to stretch and challenge you, then you have come to the right place. So , welcome! My name is Mary Miller and I can help you and your organization envision and create the future you want – for yourself, your business, or your employees.
As your life or personal coach, I provide you with time and space to focus on yourself and your future. I listen deeply and without judgment to who you are. I walk along with you as you explore your options and the vibrant path that is right for you.
People hire coaches for many reasons. In my experience, these reasons all come down to one common thread – people want to make changes in their lives and businesses. They want to think differently and do differently. They want to find a better path to get from where they are to where they want to be.
Strategic HR means many things and can be summarized as the alignment of HR strategies, policies, and activities with long-term business goals. This includes . . .
- Intentionally shaping a culture that is builds trust and engages employees at all levels, linking them to “the Why” of the business;
- Developing people by providing opportunities for personal and professional growth and a framework that sets people up to succeed; and
- Ensuring that policies and communications are clear, decisions that impact employees are fair and made in as transparent a manner as possible.
If you want your HR function to transform your organization by helping to drive behaviors tied to your desired business outcomes, then you need more than legal compliance – you need strategies!

It’s All About You! Everyone wants to be heard. And, I’d love to hear from you about your experiences with the human resources function at your current or past employers. I am working on a book about how organizations can do a better job at developing and retaining...
Today, I have been thinking and worrying, actually, about a situation in which I have virtually no control. I reminded myself to stop and figure out what part I do have some control in and decide what action I want to take. Then, I reminded myself to let the rest of...
She stretches clients to generate insights into themselves, to expand their skills, and to explore all the possibilities open to them. She has worked with organizations at all stages from start-up to mature/exit, ranging in size from small to multi-site/multi-state/multi-country operations.
Mary enjoys helping progressive organizations be more effective through development of their leaders and managers. These entities include businesses that produce and/or sell ‘green’ products and services, nonprofits that improve the environment and people’s lives, and organizations that integrate sustainability and social responsibility into their daily operations.
When she’s not coaching top talent, she’s pampering her animal companions, spending time in nature, and volunteering in her local community.
Instead she helps you work through an issue in detail and look for a variety of solutions and pick the one that may work best. This is a much more empowering and useful approach because of its long-term benefits.
Mary is also very empathetic with a great sense of humor so one feels comfortable to share personal, possibly painful, details quickly.
I have very much enjoyed my time with her and am grateful for her support and guidance.”
My personal and professional life has improved greatly through coaching sessions. It has helped with me control road rage and help with me dealing with the teen-age years of my son. It has also helped me professionally. From managing up and conducting more productive meetings to realizing my self-worth and my worth to the company.”
