Speaking Testimonials

Your teachings are wonderful! I had a 1:1 with a team member today and she was sharing a situation that was very difficult and very emotional for her. Instead of jumping in to offer a solution and to “calm her down,” I noticed my discomfort with the situation and then allowed for the silence and for her to have that emotional expression. I listened and empathized. It was such a powerful moment for me because I’m accustomed to doing something completely opposite! And I could also feel that she felt that safe space for her to express her emotions – it was truly beautiful.  Curiosity, compassion, and courage > who doesn’t need more of that in their conversations?!?

Thank you for the beautiful online training session yesterday, Marcia. The beauty was in the way you created an atmosphere of safety and peace and zero judgment through the coaching demo… You offered 100% focus and presence that I can only describe as beautiful.

I live and work in an environment that is largely impatient and always on the go. It is really tough to share the benefits of genuinely giving quality time even in short sessions to help people find themselves here in Nigeria. You embodied patience warmth & genuine interest in the human from the start to the end. The cherry on the cake was the fact that you were able to project all the elements of a good coaching session virtually!!!. I think you’re totally exceptional.

Thank you for the beautiful work you do for humanity. I look forward to further sessions with you and possibly meeting you someday somewhere.

Marcia Reynolds is by far the most effective and influential executive coach and corporate trainer I have ever encountered. As Head of HR, Latin America I worked with Marcia in a period of two years while she delivered “Leader of Others” and “Leader of Leaders” courses throughout Latin America. Furthermore, Ms. Reynolds became our executive coach for the Latin American President among other leaders in the region.

It is not only Ms. Reynolds deep skills and understanding of executive development that I consider world class; Ms. Reynolds has a brilliant ability to comprehend, nurture, and feed back information to all types of leaders while they are experiencing significant change. Everyone is positively affected after a program or conversation with Ms. Reynolds.

Ms. Reynolds has an open, inclusive, flexible, outgoing and warm personality with a big heart and focused determination to achieve day-to-day, concrete results – changing leaders’ behaviors to more appropriate and proactive relationships, strengthening their performance and talent management skills, and giving them the skills for providing candid and action-oriented feedback, all the while they are achieving excellent business results.

Ms. Reynolds will continue to be my primary leadership development provider and executive coach while I hold this position.

You gave me a new dimension and techniques I have practiced ever since your program. As a result, I am hoping to see the development of more leaders in our organization plus a higher level of service, improved staff morale and commitment of heart and energy.

I invited Marcia to present to CA Technologies’ global women network on the topic of turning difficult conversations into positive outcome, and it was one of our most popular talks by the number of participation and replays. Research-backed, actionable tips, empathetic problem-solving approach, all of these make Marcia a powerful speaker. Listening to her talk is simply a joy!

I would like to thank you for helping me with a very difficult, and delicate situation. Several weeks ago, I attended one of your sessions. I put your advice to work and almost immediately ‘fixed’ the problem. We now have an excellent working relationship.

Thank you for speaking to the DCRI leaders about emotional intelligence; it was a truly memorable day. I am very grateful for the time and effort you took to explain how a person can understand and better respond to emotions, overcome stress, and heighten their awareness about how words and actions impact others. You are an outstanding speaker.

Marcia’s training with our internal team of coaches was tremendously impactful. There were three key benefits. Firstly, it improved our ability to coach leaders and navigate difficult conversations with more confidence and effectiveness; secondly, it increased our effectiveness as individual leaders through our increasing our awareness of the importance of leading with brain, heart and gut; and thirdly, it brought us closer as a team by fostering more trust and openness.
