my practice

I am a Martha Beck® Certified Coach; I consult on behalf of clients with an emphasis on career and/or personal growth acceleration.

My twitter bio says: “Badass adjacent. Some days I crush it. Most days, I’m just human.” That pretty much sums it up. In other words, I’m not perfect, but I will work my ass off for you. I’ve, proudly, been a coach, consultant and counselor since 2014.

My previous 17 years were spent in media/advertising sales. The most rewarding part of my first career was the opportunity to understand a client’s specific need and consultatively develop a solution together. My passion is, and has always been, to help those in need.

WHY HIRE A LIFE COACH?

There are times in our lives when we need additional support to grow in the right direction.

  • Times of crisis or forced change (job loss, divorce, death of a loved one)
  • Times you are contemplating making change (career change, relationship evolution, big life stages like kids going off to college)
  • Overwhelming, confusing transitions

My practice is an empathetic and actionable support to help you make tangible change.

Maybe you are considering changing careers, or you are struggling in a current relationship. Maybe you feel stuck, but are having trouble articulating why. If the old ways of coping aren’t working & you want to examine your life in a new way, schedule a free consultation.

more about my practice & pricing ...

Utilizing the skills of a Coach is an opportunity to create and implement a new way of life. One that is free of fear.

One that feels like coming home.

One that embraces grace.

After a free 20-30 minute initial consultation, you can choose a package of sessions (see pricing below). In these (1) hour sessions, we’ll openly explore your goals, desires & fears. The only expectation is a willingness to wonder, what if. From there, we’ll develop your customized plan, designed for your individual purpose and fulfillment.

Our sessions can be over Skype or the phone, or if you are in the Portland, OR area, in person.

Packages & Pricing:

Brand Positioning package:

This package focuses on developing your personal brand to best position yourself in the competitive work environment and in life. The emphasis will be on emotional intelligence, harnessing your natural energy, and building self-confidence. In no time, you’ll command rooms and slay dragons. $1399.  Includes: 8 sessions, 2 bonus 15 minute “911” sessions, and regular email/text communication between sessions.

Career Advancement package:

Lean in. Bail Out. Climb the Ladder or is it a Jungle Gym? It doesn’t matter. This package is all about getting where you want to go at work, more quickly. More passion, more joy, more freedom, more money. $1199. Includes: 6 sessions and email/text communication between sessions.

OTO (One Time Only) package:

This is not for the faint of heart. This is for the self-motived and self-directed. We dig in deep, fast. You’ll share a bit about your current situation, and from there, I’ll give you my unfiltered “tough love” recommendations + a set of tools you’ll utilize on your own, moving forward. $325. Includes: 1 (hour & :30 minute) session.

The foundation of each of these packages is the same: the courage and desire to change. Change yourself and you inevitably change your situation. But it takes guts to grow.

To ensure accountability + progress and maximize success, your package must be utilized within a 3 month window.

If you can’t shake the feeling that where you are just isn’t where you’re meant to be, let’s talk. And it’s all good news, by the way; having a healthy, humbling uncertainty about what steps to take is simply the beginning of what’s next.

Here’s a bit more about my Coaching philosophy: I believe we each have an individual purpose here on this planet; yet we are inextricably connected to each other. This means we have a responsibility to ourselves and each other. It also means we don’t have to go it alone. Even though it can sometimes feel like the weight & the pain is all ours to bear; support shows itself in miraculous, unexpected ways.

I try to live a life of intention and presence, which keeps me most aligned with joy and peace.

But don’t misunderstand me.

I’ve been disappointed, hurt, and at times badly shaken. The sheer joy and freedom of arriving on the other side of this darkness, back into the light, is what inspires me to help others with their own journey.

professional development

Human Capital is the most precious resource a company has.  There are tons of stats about the high cost of rehiring & retraining vs. retention, so when considering the bottom line, it’s a no brainer to invest in your employees.  There is also a ton of research around happier employees being more productive employees.  Again, that bottom line!

One mutually beneficial way to invest in your employees is training.

Maggie Helm works with corporate teams across the country to support their employees’ growth, supplement their knowledge, elevate their experience and advance their passions.

Maggie is available to coach individual employees, and will develop a custom action plan based on shared goals of Management and Employee. Recent clients include Nike and Wieden + Kennedy.

She is also available to lead group workshops and facilitate your team’s professional development in the following Leadership areas:

 

  • Emotional Intelligence Acumen

In some instances, participants should expect to be videoed for additional development opportunities & feedback.

inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure.”

    Not crushing the interview? Maybe it’s your Energy.

    Not nailing the interview? Maybe it's not your experience. Maybe it's your energy. Have you ever left a meeting or an interview and wanted to kick yourself because you forgot to mention that one key point? Or ask that critical question? It's not because you are forgetful or scatterbrained or "stupid" (I imagine Chris Farley hitting his forehead saying "I'm such an idiot").

    What your high school yearbook says about you

    The Brett Kavanaugh hearing got me thinking about my own yearbook page, and all the cringe worthy "besetting sins' or "forever remembering" details I'd so cleverly disguised to avoid the yearbook club censoring my free speech (or possibly they were attempting a level of decency and decorum that high school age students aren't capable of, with their underdeveloped, immature brains, and inability to accurately assess consequences Just sayin'.) I went back and looked at my yearbook "senior…  read more

    Achieving Equanimity

    Equanimity: mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. The mind has five aspects, which as they develop, bring equanimity to the mind. These are: Faith, Self-control, Determination, Concentration, and Patience. (full disclosure: I learned this from Bikram Yoga Theory) This is true for moving through the changes life inevitably throws at us. I believe the trick is in knowing when to use which. oFaith oSelf-Discipline oDetermination oConcentration oPatience We can work so hard (concentration, determination, self-discipline) to get where we…  read more
“Maggie helped me secure a design/plan that I didn’t possess on my own. I got to reconnect with the qualities I loved about myself and the pieces I was missing for growth. I began heading in the right direction.”
