Marni’s clients have three things in common:

Executives

Executives understand that business problems aren’t just external. You know that what’s in the way can’t always be solved with another business plan, strategic idea, or new hire.

When leaders experience difficulty closing a gap between current reality and vision, Four Site Leadership helps you uncover and re-wire the mindsets and dynamics that underlie collective day-to-day behaviors and actions. Aligning strategy with purpose, and cultivating an authentic power transforms the way you lead and the results you get.

Implementing a vision requires generative relationships, aligned action, and continuous applied learning. It means getting everyone on the same page, looking at the same goals, and sharing a vision and empowered commitment to realize it.

Consulting, Organizational Health, and Coaching areas include:

  • Aligning Strategy with Purpose, Authentic Power & Impact

  • How to Evolve from a Business or Technical Expert to a Leader

  • How to Hold Crucial Conversations®

  • How to Increase Business Agility & Innovation

  • Building Trust

  • Co-Creativity: Rules for the New Gender-Conscious Workplace

“Dr. Gauthier is a “wow” individual and a big positive surprise. She is engaging, credible, and a time management master. Her leadership training was great: relevant and useful with “live” examples I really enjoyed, and that gave me information and techniques I started using the same week, at work and in everyday life.”

~Anders Gilberg Senior Vice President, Government Affairs at Medical Group Management Association

Entrepreneurs & Founders

Entrepreneurs and founders must focus on many variables, from scale and funding to culture and delegation. They do this as growth occurs in disorienting waves. Entrepreneurs and founders, more so than C-level executives, are often isolated inside their own organizations and less aware of how their company culture might be changing around them.

As a systems thinker, Marni is fluent in the transformative inner and interpersonal work that breeds lasting, sustainable results. She draws not only on coaching tools (including macro-structural patterning, shadow work, identity coaching and personal mastery), but also world-class, cross-industry leadership development.

Marni will help illuminate the larger culture that surrounds you, so it can stay true to your vision during periods of rapid growth, hiring, and change.

Consulting, Organizational Health, and Coaching areas include:

  • Scale without Losing Your Soul: Winning Culture & Organizational Health

  • How to Hold Crucial Conversations®

  • How to Increase Business Agility & Innovation

  • Building Trust

  • Aligning Strategy with Purpose, Authentic Power & Impact

  • Co-Creativity: Rules for the New Gender-Conscious Workplace

“Marni has a special touch as a facilitator and group leader. She is intuitive about the people in the room. She gently draws out each person so that they are heard without applying pressure. Her questions and insights are probing and thought provoking. Whenever I am in a group with Marni leading, I feel I have learned so much about myself. She is a real gift.”

Teams

All leaders live inside of teams that help bring their visions to life. While a leader’s vision is rooted in profits and results, growth and purpose drives today’s creative professionals, and is vital to Millenials maturing inside the workforce and to Generation Z about to enter it.

In short, profits alone are no longer enough to sustain a healthy company. Building a purpose-driven culture means cultivating a team’s mindsets, behaviors, and actions to ensure results and lasting growth.

Marni works with teams to facilitate a purpose-driven vision flow through day-to-day work, communication, problem solving, creative tension, productive conflict, and much more. This work inside the heart of a company keeps it agile, sustainable, and strong.

Marni develops leadership competencies that include:

  • How to Hold Crucial Conversations®

  • iLoveFeedback®

  • Building Trust

  • The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

  • From Manager to Leader

  • Co-Creativity: Rules for the New Gender-Conscious Workplace

“Marni knocked it out of the park! You can’t teach what she does. She listens to everybody in the room and brings back the various points to weave them into relational learning.”

Purpose-driven Leaders

If you’re increasingly driven by purpose and growth (and not solely by profits or a paycheck), you’re not alone. As the authors of The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People are Changing the World puts it, “there has never been a time like ours for the great art and craft of waking up” and moreover, a broadening of current consciousness for social and planetary good.

Underscoring this, research shows that Millennials maturing in today’s workplace are driven by personal growth, and that Generation Z, about to enter it, is driven by purpose.

If your vision is more like a calling than a good idea,
If your growth serves your values and purpose,
Then you’re crafting (or longing to craft) a personal and professional identity that encompasses, supports and sustains your evolving life and work.

On this path, a wise and savvy guide is invaluable.

As a highly experienced professional, certified coach, parent, athlete  and yogini, Marni’s approach is holistic, and infused with her quintessential fierce clarity and empathy, with a strong focus on strategy. She helps unearth your healthy discontent, and tap the creative tension in your life to stoke the fires of transformative and sustainable change.

  • Personal Mastery: How to Cultivate and Execute Your Vision

  • Strengths, Decision Style & Leadership Identification

  • Authentic Power to Maximize your Influence and Impact

  • Optimizing Your Creativity, Productivity, and Health
