• ELVEN GLOW

    Our current virtualized everyday life is becoming saturated with toxic levels of inauthenticity that we are forced to ingest. We live in a noisy world and if we accept it, we become part of the noise… we become mediocre out of fear of being different. This affects our emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual state. Discover...

  • THE SOUND OF YOU

    The Sound of You is about unlearning what's not working, course correct, and relearn that it’s OK to honor and liberate our uniqueness! When we are authentic, we create the conditions for cohesion in our cultures and society at large. 

     

    Outside the borders of our comfort zone lies our true nature. Spontaneous, always recreating itself, always changing, always unique. And it might not be interested in gathering any followers, nor bear the burden of leadership… yet staying true to its own calling - a voice that expresses possibilities in an empowered direction. This is THE SOUND OF YOU, with its own authority. An inner vista of fearless freedom.

     

    We live in a noisy world and if we accept it, we become part of the noise. As such, we repeat the chatter, the gossip, the babble …we feel empty and powerless. We become passive spectators, an echo, bystanders in a game that leads to nowhere. Getting out of the noise, is longing for our own specific identity - with its depth, height, wonder and meaning – longing to get out of hibernation. Learning the language of Self-Awareness and Authenticity. 

     

    It’s not easy! It takes courage to have a voice and it’s a journey, not a quick fix – a leap into doing things our own way. There are two stages here:

    • Our voice – our need for success and personal visibility
    • Our song – our essential vocation, our deep inner call

    Finding our voice comes first. This is about unlocking qualities that help us step out into visibility and making ourselves heard, becoming self-confident at things we care about. When we become personally visible, our song comes to life. This is our vocation in action - the condition for starting our own song.

  • The Roadblock to Our Own Song is Mediocrity & the fear of being different is what drives mediocrity!

     

     

    We see mediocrity in entropic, ossified systems that are no longer working, old patterns that are no longer serving us, lack of creativity and innovation in individuals and organizations, lack of authentic self-expression... ultimately lack of authentic power and ethical leadership. Science shows that genetically, our brain has not changed much in 50,000 years, which means our 'caveman brain’ is struggling to deal with the high and constantly changing demands and challenges of the 21st Century workplace and life.

     

    None of us like to be mediocre, yet we all are in some ways. Can we overcome it? Certainly. By overcoming our baser tendencies. By unlearning status quo and getting beyond our current comfort zone. By having the courage to be authentic, even if that means being different. By navigating the jungle of our unresolved issues, pain and old programming. Lastly, by finding our own path and inventing our own identity in the world. Good new, our brain is very adaptable and able to learn new skills and as a result of neuroplasticity it forms NEW neuropathways throughout our lives.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    WE CAN BREAK OUT OF MEDIOCRITY...WHEN WE UNDERSTAND, HONOR, AND LIBERATE OUR UNIQUENESS

     

    When we dare to look beyond instinct and intellect...into creativity, flexibility, and freedom. When we learn to be our fullest self with integrity. When we are able to assist others in living and working at their highest potential. 

     

    "Creativity is amazing. Play is amazing. Being original is amazing. Amazing, astounding, thrilling, asymptotic. Divergence opens up possibilities, creating the flexibility to be extraordinary, to stand out from the crowd and enliven others with a spellbinding display of wit and artistry. When attuned to the environment, when humor is working well and the timing is right, the ideas flow… with art which speaks to the zeitgeist, capturing the ineffable in an ineffable way… creativity leads to deep communion and empathy." - Grant Hilary Brenner, MD

  • WHO

    Hello Change Seekers! My name is Maria Marc

     

    In my work, I am a Professional Coach & Change Facilitator of various facets and credentials: Career, Leadership, Organizational, Cognitive-Behavioral, Neuroscience based, Conscious Business, Developmental, Somatic, Trauma Informed, Change and Transformation focused.

     

    Deep inside, I feel like a ‘modern medicine woman’, who went to business school instead, earned a postgrad in Business Administration & a master’s in Leading Innovation and Change... and now is more of a change alchemist.

     

    To me, inner transformation starts with embracing our emotional discomfort, facing our fears, sitting with our pain and wounds, yet choosing to rise above it all and embracing a new and self-empowering perspective. I call this Authentic Self-Awareness – that moment when we finally see ourselves as clearly as possible in terms of our personal values, thought patterns, behaviors, strengths, and weaknesses.

     

    “Even though most people believe they are self-aware, self-awareness is a truly rare quality: We estimate that only 10%–15% of the people we studied actually fit the criteria.” -Tasha Eurich, PhD

     

    Authentic self-awareness is a personal wake-up call, often disguised in a ‘perfect storm’ that help us break out of mediocrity, course-correct, and build sound respect for who we are and where we are in our lives.

  • ...

    The current pandemic gave us the opportunity to retreat, contemplate, and regain a clear understanding of ourselves and our values. It takes grit to accept who we are, find the courage to face our own ‘perfect storm’, and start believing in the power of being uniquely ourselves in the world. 

     

    I chose to walk this journey with a certified sustainability expert by my side (stay tuned for more on this) ... and all artwork on this website belongs to artist Katrina Koltes!

     

    In today’s changing and uncertain times, success is a moving target! If you are willing to look inwards, I can help you find the bridge from self-blindness to self-insight, so you can reap the rewards of smarter career choices, stronger relationships and overall, a better life. 

     

    Some of my credentials: Certified Career Transition Coach, Certified Organizational Coach, Certified Facilitator, Certified Organizational Culture Consultant, Certified in Neuroscience Coaching (NeuroCoaching, NeuroLeadership, The Neuroscience of Change, Peak Mental Performance, NeuroTraining, Neuro Education, NeuroHealth, NeuroRelationships), Developmental Coaching, Somatic & Trauma Informed Coaching, MA - Leading Change & Innovation, Postgraduate Degree in Business Administration ...and currently immersed in a new PhD adventure, and all things Authenticity!

     

    When the winds of change rage, some build shelters while others build windmills. What are you building?

  • WHY

    The current capitalist model got us out of the middle age into a better place, with less poverty, diseases, and war. We’ve come a long way. But we are at an inflection point now… we might need an upgrade, or an entirely new model to be able to move into the next stage of our evolution.

     

    The downside of today’s capitalism is the destruction of our environment, the many social problems we are currently facing…. besides, it lacks SOUL. We can no longer do business for the sake of business… growth without check, profit without thought! This model has become unsustainable.

     

    Switching to more ethical business and leadership practices would help us course correct… restore the environment, bring more loyalty and purpose into what we are doing. We would all feel more fulfilled and maybe ready to leave a legacy to our grandchildren, a planet for them to live on.
