corporate offerings





The work of an employee is indicative of how valued they feel. Said more simply: If an employee feels valued, they will work their ass off for you. There are exceptions to the rule: it’s usually people with incredible work ethic and drive.  Those folks will go through a wall for you until one day they realize it just ain’t worth the pain. And they will take their talents elsewhere. At the end of the day, you, Joe Employer, still lose.

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.

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

  • Emotional Intelligence Acumen
  • Communication & Negotiation
  • Presentation Skills
  • Personal Brand Positioning

All trainings are 3 hours in length.  Each workshop includes team exercises like role-play, which encourage a growth mindset and teamwork. These interactive components are also an opportunity to apply and hone existing skills, along with newly acquired knowledge. In some instances, participants should expect to be videoed for additional development opportunities & feedback.

“Don’t think. It complicates things. just feel, and if it feels like home, then follow its path.” – R.M. Drake

my practice

I am a Martha Beck® Certified Life 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.  (Oh and by the way, I hate twitter! So there’s that.)  I’ve, proudly, been a Martha Beck® Certified life 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.


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.

Utilizing the skills of a Life Coach is an opportunity to create and implement a new way of life.

more about my practice & pricing ...

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. 6 sessions ($780)

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. 5 sessions ($695)

Relationship & Dating package:

Stop settling for settling. This package is an opportunity to explore what’s been holding you back and identity your most authentic, attractive attributes to best position you for future success. They’ll never ghost on you again. 4 sessions ($595)

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. 1 (hour & :30 minute) session ($300)

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.


“Our deepest fear is not that we are
inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure.”

    Let J.Lo be J.Lo, and You be You.

    Everyone’s got shit to say about the Super Bowl Half Time Show.  Some of it was good. Thankfully. But there were plenty of criticisms about Shakira and J.Lo during and immediately following the show.  A show where they absolutely flawlessly nailed their performances, including singing, dancing, playing instruments, and weaving Feminist (Humanist?) themes throughout. Most heard criticism on my feed: “40 and 50 year old women appearing way too sexy. Cover your kids’ eyes. That’s not family…  read more

    The Hard Work of Being a Woman

    (Part 1 of 2) “I should be crying, but I just can't let it show. I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking.” -Women’s Work by Kate Bush The intention of the various waves of the women’s movement was to ensure more opportunities, more options and more equality for women. This expansion coincided with the explosion of technology and a global economy, both of which raised the stakes and the speed with which we do business.
