Listen to the LSC Podcast Featuring Maria Cristini
I highly recommend Maria as an executive coach. I am extremely grateful to have her influence in my professional and personal life. Maria was recommended by a trusted family friend, and I began coaching with her as I entered into a transition period in my career. Her coaching sessions and structures gave me invaluable perspective, growth, direction, tools and confidence to make the changes I needed and to adapt to new work environments. She helped me specifically to refine and define my professi… Read more

Maria Cristini facilitated a powerful series of authentic, value-based activities that helped us build a deep level of trust and a thorough understanding of each team member’s values, assets, and needs. We have grown into a team that can engage in productive conflict. This has resulted in stronger shared leadership, sound decisions, and effective meetings. I’m looking forward to where she takes our team next!

I wanted to say thanks again for all your help over the last 6 months. I went back and re-did my Wheel of Life from our intake today and it was great to see that I feel like I’ve made improvements in almost every area. Overall, I definitely feel happier, more balanced, and optimistic about the future. It feels really nice. So thanks again for helping me down the path!

The Step into Leadership approach is not just helpful, it’s transformative. Our team discovered we don’t have to be all things to all people, and that our compliment of strengths can be strategically tapped so that we each shine in our unique ways. I used to focus on my own gaps in leadership capacity; no longer. There’s no lack here when I look at our team as a whole. It’s a real paradigm shift that gives me great confidence in our future.
I feel the retreat provided an opportunity for team members to get to know each other better through the exercise on values, building more of an environment of trust and understanding–foundational to our team.
I initiated a relationship with Maria because I sought to be a great leader of my company while remaining a responsible steward of my own personal dreams and desires. Coaching with Maria transformed my whole life: I gained deep insights into my motivations, fears, patterns, and desires that allow me to make decisions and take actions on a daily basis in support of realizing a joyful, responsible, and fulfilled life, both personally and professionally.

The clarity that I’m gaining is incredible. Thank you for coaching me to see what is available to me, both what’s already here and what I can create. It’s very cool to have a plan for moving to pure joy!
Working with Maria has been life changing and career changing. We connected during a pivotal inflection point in my career, helping me clarify and simplify a complex decision-making process, taking into account all the different facets of my life and how they work together. Her astute insights and helpful advice helped keep me sane, empowered, content, motivated and inspired through an extended and challenging career transition. The collaboration with Maria has been invaluable and I look forward… Read more
