“Being curious is a game changer in work and in life.”

Maile Topliff

I work with leaders like you to get more powerful results. My clients make brave and intentional choices, are clear about their values and priorities, clearly define their career and personal roadmap, know how to champion their direct reports and deliver critical business results.

I believe that, as leaders, we have an opportunity and a responsibility to positively impact others. There is power in having the space to dig in and tackle the work that you want to do, and having someone firmly in your corner to support you in doing that, and who will help hold you accountable.

My executive coaching experience, leadership development skills, business and people acumen when teamed up with your experience and willingness to do the work, will provide the foundation for transformative results. My effectiveness as a coach lies in providing a leadership framework and holding the space for candid discussions, in which we’ll apply deep curiosity, build trust, ask & answer questions that drive thought and results, dismantle barriers and create an opening for a shift in perspective and approach.

As your coach, I will be your accountability partner for the work that you commit to.

You will shape the course of action.

Ready now to discuss how I can assist you in accomplishing your goals?

Here’s what you can expect…

  • Tap into your own capacity and potential
  • Create an actionable plan, and receive support as you navigate that plan
  • Evaluate how you currently show up and how you want to feel and show up
  • Questions that draw out your strengths and provide awareness of potential derailers
  • Game-changing answers and moments to emerge
  • The exploration of new ideas and possibilities

Our focus, work, and examples are from your work, your workplace (organizational culture, dynamics and politics) and your people.

I’ve served as an executive and leadership coach for nineteen years. My Master Coach certification is granted through the Center for Coaching Certification which is endorsed by the International Coaching Federation, of which I am a member. I’ve worked in multiple industry sectors, for Fortune 100 companies, for a small boutique consulting firm and for two owner companies to stand up a new company of 4000+ employees on Day One.

I work with a set number of private* coaching clients. The first step is to make sure that we are a good fit with each other, so if we haven’t yet had a conversation, let’s begin there.

If we have spoken, the packages displayed below are currently available for private clients. Please choose the one that is the best fit for where you want to begin.

Maile should be the first call you make.

“Maile brings deep experience in business, people, and change management strategy to her coaching, but what differentiates her is her curiosity.  Maile is all the more credible because she walks her talk – she’s continuously looking at her own life and work through that same big lens.  If you want to tackle the questions you may have been ducking, feel like you’re ready for a big shift, or are willing to take an unvarnished look at how you are showing up as a leader in your company or in your life, Maile should be the first call you make.” 

Jim Bolton, Owner & President, Ridge Associates 

If you are interested in a corporate engagement, let’s discuss.

There are also strategy sessions available (either coaching or consulting) — in either half-day or full-day sessions. These are ideal for a leader stepping into a new role, promotion, or that will be leading a new team or function. Please contact me for more details.

Maile encouraged me to visualize a future without limitations.

“Maile encouraged me to visualize a future without limitations, and the veil of mundane living was lifted.  Today, I am well on my way to a successful hybrid business that adds value to small businesses, and provides accounting support to not-for-profit organizations.  With conviction and passion, Maile encourages others like a solar flare that lights a fire under stagnant individuals so they can get up and pursue a purpose-driven life.” 

Georgia Green, Founder & CEO, Adonai Consulting

Maile’s extraordinary skills were integral.

“Maile’s extraordinary skills were integral and contributed directly to a highly successful market integration of a 1,200 – member workforce between two divergent cultures and organizational structures.  Maile’s engaging personality and ability to quickly establish credibility and develop trusting relationships, allowed her to be accepted and welcomed as she moved throughout the organization, and from team to team.” 

Bill Wright, Executive Leader 

I’ve become more aware of my impact and influence.

“The focus of my work with Maile was on maximizing the leadership skills I already have, and exploring how I might use those skills differently or more effectively.  I’ve not only become more aware of my impact and influence, I’ve been able to further increase my effectiveness as a leader.  If you want to increase your leadership effectiveness, get clear on your leadership brand, improve your working relationships, and get better business results, I would recommend investing in working with Maile.” 

Rick Nielsen, Director of Technology, CB & Engineering, Cox Communications 

Maile helped me unpack my vulnerabilities in order to see - and appreciate - my strengths.

“Maile met me where I was in my leadership development process, and helped me unpack my vulnerabilities in order to see – and appreciate – my strengths.  I developed action plans that I am still implementing today.  If you are looking for an executive coach to help you break through barriers and get to the next level, I highly recommend working with Maile.”
