"I am moved to provide the highest recommendation for Marilyn. Along with her great technical job in developing my site, Marilyn has been a pleasure to work with.

Marilyn recently managed a coaching engagement with four very senior executives in a 'Fortune 500' client of mine. She did a wonderful job of managing the work of coaches involved - and coordinating the project. The end result was positive, long-term change in behavior for the client executives - and a very positive experience for the coaches!

Along with her great technical job in developing my site, Marilyn has been a pleasure to work with.

She has shown the highest integrity and has handled a couple of tough situations in a very professional way."

Marshall Goldsmith
Million-selling author of 33 books
World authority in helping successful leaders get even better


"Over the past 35 years, I have known and published many of the top consultants and executive coaches. More recently, at age 70, I have enjoyed being coached by a woman who has worked for 25 years with two of the top executive coaches, Marshall Goldsmith and Gary Ranker.

Marilyn brings a wealth of experience and proven tools and methodology to her coaching, and then adds her own special touch, including her amazing empathy, her ability to ask the right questions and listen deeply to understand.

She then explores options and draws out solutions, rather than simply prescribing canned remedies. Her one-on-one, customized and personalized coaching proves that she really cares about helping her clients make progress in areas that matter most to them in both the personal and professional domains of their lives.

I highly recommend Marilyn McLeod, an executive coach who knows how to develop authentic leadership excellence."

Ken Shelton, CEO
Executive Excellence, LLC
Ghost-writer for "7 Habits of Highly Effective People"


"I've known Marilyn for many years and hear only positive comments from individuals who know her and have worked with her. She is deeply experienced in a variety of industries, and on a variety of subjects critical to executive coaching."

Dr. Beverly Kaye
Founder and Chairwoman
Career Systems International


"Marilyn has an amazing and rare ability to recognize patterns of behaviour as a coach and distill that understanding into direct pragmatic recommended actions to improve her clients' interpersonal relationships.

The result is that her coaching clients are more successful in both understanding themselves, more self aware, and are able to achieve their goals within business more efficiently due to a greater understanding of their social context. We have collaborated as co-authors on two books about coaching and her writing skills are extraordinary. Again because of her rare ability to recognize patterns, she is able to find the salient practical value from research and present it in a meaningful yet simplified practical manner for the reader.

I have personally seen Marilyn's talent in action over the past decade of working together on coaching projects. It is from this vital first hand experience of Marilyn as a coaching partner that gives me the vantage to attest how extraordinary she is as a coach."

Dr. Gary Ranker
Global CEO Coach


"Marilyn is a master of her trade. She organized and hosted Thought Leader interviews; she created an atmosphere of relaxed excitement and intellectual stimulation which everyone seemed to feel and respond to from the moment they arrived.

Marilyn McLeod is an example of pure ability in action."

Nathaniel Branden
Pioneer in the field of Self-Esteem
Collaborator with Ayn Rand


"Marilyn has a tremendous amount of energy and experience in supporting others to make their books happen. She has an in-depth background of synthesizing your thoughts into actionable steps towards writing that book you have always wanted to accomplish. Marilyn will do whatever it takes to help you move through your discomfort to get you thinking like an author, even if you have never written a book before. She knows how to quiet your inner critic and bring out your cheerleaders! From tips on organizing your thoughts to getting them on paper into palatable chapters to reviewing your drafts, guiding your marketing, and working with you in manifesting that message you want to be sent out in the world."

Dr. Arianne Weiner
President of Implementing Change,
a Leadership Coaching and Development Consultancy for Entrepreneurs and Small Business


"Marilyn takes the time to internalize and really learn concepts before applying them. Her natural listening and attending skills make her one of the most qualified individuals I know to be a successful behavioral coach."

Frank Wagner
Stakeholder Centered Coaching Train the Coach Certification


"Marilyn's 360 interviews helped our team & continue to help me as a leader. If you really want to lead, you're not a leader unless people are following. A real leader knows whether his messages get through, or if unintended messages are coming across. It's well worth the exercise to get real data on how key people perceive my leadership & the future direction of our firm."

Steve Sallen
Southfield, MI


"Marilyn has a wonderful, cheerful personality that makes her a pleasure to work with. She is a thorough professional with skills and talents that are adaptable to many different kinds of projects and organizations."

Geoffrey M. Cox, PhD
Alliant International University
Marshall Goldsmith School of Management


"Marilyn is a talented, smart, sincere and wonderful person! I have known Marilyn for many years in various roles. I have known her to be very intent on being of great value. She gives high service and support for her clients. She has helped me in a coaching role, in my book launch and in general networking connections. I highly recommend Marilyn for a role in working with leaders to get to the next level with projects or in their businesses."

"Marilyn, I am very impressed with the work you are doing for my friend and long time business partner. Thank you for that. You are definitely a pro."

How many years have you been wanting to write your book?

Does it seem like a daunting or impossible task to you?

Do you have an idea for your topic?

We're here to help. From self-paced books and training, to group coaching and individual coaching ... you choose based on your own timeframe and budget.

If you're writing your book for business, consider these points:

  • You're building credibility as a subject matter expert with your book.
  • Who is your ideal prospect? What matters most to them? How do you want them to see you?
  • What matters most to you? If you're building your career, what type of work would you most enjoy doing day to day?

Other reasons to write your book:

  • You have an idea you'd like to convey to the world.
  • You want to leave a legacy.
  • You want to share stories with your grandchildren.
  • It's a fun, creative outlet for you.

You don't have to enjoy or even be able to write ... is that what's in your way? Use Dragon to speak your ideas, and ask someone else to do the editing. Or 'write' a book of creative photos or artwork that brings you pleasure. There are so many ways to express yourself through books.
