What do others say about me and my coaching?

“Mark was nothing short of a ‘lifeline’ during our time together when he coached and supported my learning curve… Indeed, his focus, gentle strategic guidance, and humor, all inspired me to ‘climb the mountain’! Seeing his smile as I arrived.. always took the edge off.

The passion, precision, authenticity and creative pioneering Mark brings to his role is unmatched. Mark left a deep impression on me and he is a gem who leads by exquisite example with compassion, humility and profound discipline in all he commits and supports.

Those who have the good fortune of his presence and service are blessed.” Jennifer Gillis -Director – Mangalam Mandiram

What is my vision for my coaching practice?

I help people connect with their life’s meaning by helping them to remember what they have always known. At our time of birth we are gifted universal knowledge and as we age we slowly forget this knowledge if we don’t make effort to “remember”.

Through life we apply unrelated filters, learn new (often bad) habits, gain fears that never existed and we gradually grow away from being the pure being of understanding we came into this world as. I want to remove these filters and find the raw inner being that exists in each of us. I want people to live in trust of themselves, others and live an authentic and vulnerable life. I will help people remove anger and fear and replace it with comfort and the ease of knowing they are perfectly imperfect and that’s just great. It’s all they need. Pain will get us moving out of a sedated life, but the draw of purpose and success will move us towards our goals and the life we are designed to live. The one we want to be happy in.

I want to produce concrete and practical action in people by eliminating things that keep them from moving forward or breaking free. As well as, create solid action plans. Please allow me to journey with you towards positive incite. So when you look at your life all you need to do is “just remember”.

In group environments I allow people to connect, first with themselve, then with others. Compassion and understanding is the key to cohesion and shared vision.

Life experiences I bring to my coaching

The past 15 years has brought me through an extensive journey in the training and coaching world primarily through corporate entities. I have done performance coaching for major orgs in the private sector, such as eBay, PayPal, Telus and a number of construction companies. To complement this experience, I have spent the last 8 years in the public sector working at the City of Vancouver as a public servant. There I help to grow a leadership mentality, amongst new and old leaders, that is people-based and interest-driven. I utilize personal connection, clear individual and group expectations, measurable outcomes and a heart centered model employing authenticity and vulnerability as the guides to personal growth – creating holistic, servant leadership. Currently, I am leading a department where I’m changing the paradigms of old ways, building an old leadership team into a new, and changing everyday lives for the workers below me. I am moving into practice to expand my influence on the globe we live in through independent coaching and training in the Vancouver area.

Anything else about Me

I’m a hypno-geek who loves to play with words. That sounds fun, doesn’t it?! I have a deep passion for connecting. I have a small growing family and I am on an amazing journey that loves to throw me curveballs.

What inspires me most about the HP approach?

The seeding of understanding for one’s expression allows space to expand. Providing room for instantaneous growth and curiosity in the journey, it lends itself to creating a bare exposure, subconsciously allowing vulnerability in the moment of “A-ha!”

There’s nothing more genuine, raw or amazing than that type of true deep learning.

What unique talents and gifts do I bring to the community?

I bring authentic real personality. Unabashed curiosity (sometimes ignorance aka unknowing) and the ability to help with perspective, identify overlooked things. And a groan-tastic sense of humor.

What do I hope to get out of the community?

experience with other humans who have a desire to change themselves and the world. Contribute in whatever way is needed of me.
