what you get

Mark Downey, CPC, ELI-MP, is a Certified Professional Coach who believes that everything in life gives us an opportunity to evolve as individuals and as professionals.

During five years as a management consultant supporting boundary-pushing startups and mission-driven companies around the world, Mark had to develop the confidence and interpersonal skills needed to confidently lead teams in unfamiliar cultures and to tackle projects that felt way over his head.

The approaches Mark found during that time, and subsequently trained in, are the same approaches that he now shares with others, including iPEC’s Energy Leadership (7 Levels), Internal Family Systems (IFS), emotional intelligence, and mindfulness.

Coaching with Mark is not about getting advice, but about identifying and working through the thought patterns and behaviors that keep getting in your way. Since each person is different, Mark co-creates a coaching approach with each client, tailored to their personal values and goals.
