Patricia interviews Mary Miller, J.D., SPHR, ACC, who has been coaching executives, managers, and forward-thinking individuals for over 10 years. She brings a unique perspective based on her past work as an attorney, a human resources executive, and a consultant. Coaches meet clients where they are and offer a judgment-free zone. Asking clients to stretch and “do the right thing” is also important. How can a coach reconcile these contradictory concepts? How does the right thing show up for individuals? What about corporate clients? Is servant leadership or a global mindset necessary to doing the right thing? Join Patricia as she and Mary explore definitions for what constitutes “doing the right thing” both as an individual and from a business perspective. From a global perspective, the right thing for an organization and its executives could vary depending on the country and its culture. For everyone, the right thing can sometimes be uncomfortable and/or unpopular. What’s your experience?

Mary Miller received her law degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and her undergrad from UCLA. She has been certified as a human resources professional for more than 15 years. Mary received her coach training at Coach U. She quickly identifies and develops the transformative potential within both business and individual clients. She stretches her clients to consider all possible options open to them. Mary believes that coaching provides an individual or an organization with the opportunity to increase their awareness of themselves, their values, and impact. Mary believes that really great coaching provokes people to do more than complete a series of transactional steps to a finish line . . . really great coaching transforms and evolves the individual or the business in a holistic manner.
