Are you ready for The Journey to the Heart?

Let’s warm up with a leadership self-assessment

start here

Fast-track your leadership development

  1. from your unique perspective, in alignment with your ethics. Enacting your worldview, beliefs, values, mission, vision, purpose, impact, and legacy; even in the face of high uncertainty.
  2. in consideration of your emotions and the emotions of others. Employing savvy emotional intelligence for high-quality interpersonal relationships and fast-paced collaboration, while effectively managing stress.
  3. while acknowledging your human biology. Developing resilience and energy management competencies by recognizing your heart as the body’s energy generator and the driver of brain-heart-body coherence.
  4. in connection with your spiritual nature. Drawing upon your intuition and heart intelligence to foster shared meaning, enable fulfillment, and actualize your full potential, while also supporting others in doing the same.

In this way, heart-based creative leaders maximize their leadership performance and elevate the quality and sustainability of their impact while actualizing their gifts and talents to their fullest potential.

Others make us better.
Have you ever observed that?


It is others who help us becoming a better version of ourselves. It is along this journey that I have better understood that we are only in a relationship with others, that nothing can be achieved individually or isolated from others.

It is others who help us becoming a better version of ourselves. It is along this journey that I have better understood that we are only in a relationship with others, that nothing can be achieved individually or isolated from others. It is the others that make us better. The beauty of the destination is indeed in the human quality of the journey. A heart-based leadership practice not only can help us to build high-quality interpersonal relationships but also…

Marie is genuinely interested in understanding the other within their context. She’s truly present, body, mind, and soul.

She masters the talent of making (though) precise questions to address blind spots and make us evolve. She has a unique ability to balance emotional sensitivity with the rational need for problem-solving, activating our own submerged unknown triggers to objective choices (or new questions).

Creative Leader

Marie’s a guiding soul that will help you find your strengths and weaknesses in order to go through a process of self-discovery.

She’s a GPS that will get you back on track and you’ll walk away with great learnings!

Creative Leader

Marie takes you on a journey to develop yourself as a person, as a colleague, and as an employee.

She does so with the biggest respect for who you are, pushing you when you need to be pushed, but leaving you space when it is needed. You can feel her energy in the room… Marie truly has a gift. And everything you learn in the teambulding, you can apply to the rest of your life as well.


Creative Leader

Marie’s coaching is unique because it brings awareness to the leaders that success is not just about methods and results, it needs to pass through the power of the heart, relationships, and spirituality.

A leader empowers people not brains. In order to be able to lead others in this journey, you need first self-knowledge and self-work. Marie’s sessions offer you the whole experience.

Creative Leader

Marie is an insightful coach, there is no formula, she will read your path and will propose a journey with her, if you are willing to go through you will experience clarity in every step.

She will keep you accountable but also will drive the pace mindful of the environment and your priorities. She is an excellent listener and has the ability to connect the dots with you (not for you). Her methods and techniques are supported by research and her corporate understanding fits almost every organization there. I was not aware of “Leadership from the heart” until I met Marie and now I don’t think there is any other way to reach your best self.

In a world dominated by a treadmill of perishable leadership development, Marie offers a singular voice and lasting vision of what leaders can be.

She’s a gifted and charismatic communicator. But her message is what’s truly special: rather than mechanically including the heart in a composite approach to leadership, she goes all in and forges with others a deep appreciation and understanding of heart-based leadership. The result is nothing less than a transformative gift to those she engages.

Marie’s both witty and wise. She’s infectiously passionate and an absolute magnet for all things human. She articulates like a poet, envisions like an architect, and executes like a surgeon.

This is a woman who knows what it means to command one’s presence. Her desire to fill leadership contexts with heart can invigorate the largest of rooms. I know this because she was one of the speakers I chose for our big conference in Bucharest, and my goodness, how people loved her.

If you aren’t following her already, then you’re missing out on something of beauty.

Marie is a force of nature. She reminds you of what is (being) human, people’s energy. 

In these times when AI is on the rise everywhere, it is important to remember the things that Marie helps us recollect.
