About Marjorie

"I have everything I have ever wanted I have in my life right now. I want for nothing. I am satisfied. Life has meaning. That’s what you do. You help people get this kind of life."
Former Business Owner

"Marjorie has the unique ability to identify the unresolved core issues in your life and to challenge you to address them. She asks the hard questions."
Registered Nurse and Trainer

"Marjorie Wall-Hofer has helped me to sift through the static, identify problem areas, and develop tactics to approach 'work' more 'positively'."
Media One Market Manager

"I came in to update my resume. I ended up redefining my relationship to work and leadership, and driving up productivity. The overall result is that I'm a better employee and person."
USWC Public Relations Manager

"I've been working with Marjorie for over 2 years now and she has been instrumental in helping me evaluate my skills and career interests. One important point I learned from her coaching is that you have to be true to yourself when you are pursuing job opportunities and promotions---and it works!"
Business Integrity Director

"I was on the fast track, doing well, making money, but I wasn't happy. . . . Working with Marjorie has been a win/win situation. Instead of the fast track, I'm on the right track and I'm a lot happier. I believe a talented, dedicated person like Marjorie cannot go unrecognized because it is so seldom one encounters individuals of this caliber in any field. It is also just as seldom that I would write a letter of this nature."
Legal Professional

"I value the time I spent with you in 1996 and I appreciate your professional and very human style at performing your good work. Thank you for tapping into me and getting me going."
Artistic Entrepreneur

I wanted to "thank you" for your time and your great inspiration to me the last few months. I understand by working with you why you are such a tremendous success in what you do and your great ability to help people. Corporate Fast Tracker

Thank you so much for all the time and effort. Life has turned around 360 degrees and is still changing. I will always remember how you took the extra time to see me and the extras that you do for others too. I have a couple of business ventures in the works. So all is coming together. Business Owner

The World Says About Coaching

"The goal of coaching is the goal of good management: to make the most of an organization's valuable resources."

"...companies...offer coaching as a prerequisite to proven managers, in the understanding that everyone has blind spots and can benefit from a detached observer."

"Career management coaches...can identify missing skills or style difficulties and offer pragmatic tips..."

"Across corporate America, coaching sessions at many companies have become as routine for executives as budget forecasts and quota meetings."

Coaching motivates from the inside and lasts."

"They're part therapist, part consultant--and they sure know how to succeed in business."

"Boomers find the budding profession can help focus them on business and personal growth."

"Coaching is having a dedicated mentor; it's getting knowledgeable support and encouragement and a new way of looking at things when you need it."

"A new profession is developing to provide support, training, and tools to help people grow in their personal, work, social, and spiritual lives."

"With the right coach and you as a willing participant, you can get from point A to point B--fast!"

"Want a booster to cheer you on, a guru for guidance, a drill sergeant to keep you disciplined? Someone who will make you walk your talk, but do it gently? Maybe what you want is a personal coach."

About Resume Workshops
I don’t often give such high scores for workshops, but yours gets straight "A’s". You know your material so well you can teach it to a wide range of us students. You took time for everyone. Scott, Training Manager

This is the best resume class ever. I learned so much more in 3 hours than I ever have in the all day resume course I took as part of my separation package. This was outstanding. Kevin, Telecommunication Engineer

About Tap Your Power
The sessions were very helpful in helping to learn more about myself, my style and understanding myself. Peggy, Account Executive

When I first registered to take this workshop, I was not thrilled. I was just satisfying my boss who recommended it. I’ve taken MBTI and other tests in the past and found them to be of no value. After you presented the results, I very much buy into the tests results. Thanks. I really appreciate your professional pleasant manner. You are very approachable. James, Forecasting Manager
