About Marianne Bartley

Welcome!  When selecting someone to work with your organization, whether you lead a non profit  group or a for profit business, it makes sense to choose an experienced leader who understands people and has a proven record of motivating others.  Drawing on my background of over thirty years as a key educational leader in both the private and public sectors, I have the knowledge and expertise you are looking for to make a positive change in your organization.  I offer keynote speaking presentations leadership development, and wellness seminars for community and corporate groups, private individuals, and employees within organizations. 

Leadership.  As an experienced leader and a certified member of the John Maxwell Team,  I will engage your leadership team in the exploration and practice of proven strategies that will increase their influence in areas that make a difference.

Employee Health and Wellness.  An emphasis on wellness in the workplace increases employee retention, attendance, satisfaction and health.    As a Prime Time Health Coach and a Certified Brain Trainer with Dr. David Amen, I will provide interactive professional seminars for you and your employees.  These workshops will strengthen your organization as employees set their own wellness goals.   I am also available to provide one-to-one health and wellness coaching and community workshops.

Schools. I will custom design presentations for your school, leadership team, or district. I have expertise in one-to-one coaching for teachers, principals, central office administrators, and superintendents.
