“Being curious can be a game changer in work and in life.”
I’m Maile (My-lee) Topliff. I’m an executive & leadership coach, an experienced organizational development & human resources consultant, a trusted advisor and speaker. I have over twenty years of business experience in a corporate setting helping people become stronger leaders, build higher functioning teams, and developing their organizational talent. I have what it takes to help you build practical and pragmatic solutions that align leaders, teams, and individuals to deliver optimal business results. Solutions that create a work environment that brings out the best in people and allows them to do their jobs in the most effective way possible for their companies.
As a former CAO (Chief Administrative Officer), now solopreneur, I bring deep curiosity, smarts, and a bit of magic to help organizations and leaders perform more effectively, implement creative solutions to maximize strengths, address derailers and get business results.
Curiosity is my differentiator as an authentic leader, business owner, consultant and master coach. I value how curiosity helps keep one out of judgment, disarms fear, and allows for new ideas, creative solutions and changed relationships. It is at the core of being an optimistic problem solver – and having a strong practice of “we’ll figure it out.” That core strength has provided me many opportunities to tackle tough and complex problems and resolve them for my employer or my clients using the depth and breadth of my skills, experience and talent. It has also made me a life-long learner. I’m an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction. I stay current on building my professional and personal skills through my network, experiences, and courses.
Companies that I’ve worked for include: Seabury Group, UnitedHealth Group, Comcast (they acquired AT&T Broadband formerly MediaOne), PFPC of PNC (they acquired part of State Street Global Advisors (SSgA) formerly FirstData) and American Express.
I’ve lived and worked in Minnesota, New York City, London, Wales and South Carolina. I’ve been fortunate to have had global workforce responsibilities during my career that allow me to better support my clients that have global responsibilities. I’ve also had for profit, and non-profit board experience.
I served as an internal executive and leadership coach throughout most of my in-house career. My professional coach and master coach certifications were granted through the Center for Coaching Certification which is endorsed by the International Coaching Federation, of which I am a member. I really enjoy working one to one with a leader – supporting them in achieving their goals, building on their strengths, having self-awareness of their potential detailers, and witnessing their achievements and successes.

I’d love to talk with you and see how I can support you with coaching (or consulting).
