In 2011 he was recognized as “International Coach of the Year” by The Coaching Institute (originally known as Comprehensive Coaching University) and remains the only coach to be nominated for three consecutive years. He has also been a featured guest speaker and presenter for many organizations and a newspaper columnist for The Business Times Newspaper since 2010.


Outstanding Results

“Marcus worked with RSW Partners in providing motivational and sales training to one of our major clients. The results were outstanding. Marcus has the ability to engage diverse groups and lead them to discover their individual power and improve their personal lives and work situations. It is a winning formula and Marcus is a winning choice.”

Tom Sawyer, Former President, RSW Partners

An Agent of Change

“Marcus is an agent of change in ones heart. He communicates in ways most cannot and lifts your spirit with wisdom and peace. It is because he walks this way, that he can guide you with confidence and grace. I was lost in my own mind and caught in a trap of self deception and sabotage when I hired Marcus. In 5 focused meetings he changed my path forever. I am grateful and will always recommend his guidance to those willing to grow. Thanks Marcus!”

Patrick Bland, Owner/Head Coach, Crossfit Red

My students can spot insincerity a mile away, and Marcus not only passes their litmus test, he engages the students in productive applications of their learning within literally a minute. By being realistic and positive, Marcus helps students to learn the important lessons necessary to be successful. I find his approach dynamic and the results immediate.”

Marcus Leads by Example.

“Marcus leads by example, which is perhaps his defining feature.

He is a skillful life communicator, who asks the right questions, pays attention and gives incredible feedback. Marcus is gentle in receiving what I see, what I fear, what I hope, but he also holds me accountable.

Marcus works with those he comes to know, to not just take the time to identify what would make life more fulfilling, but to also make it happen.

He is willing to help, but endeavors to assist all of us in becoming our own advocate in this life, and that´s a powerful perspective with which to interact with the world.”

Rebecca Teitelbaum

Conversely, a boss controls, dominates, demeans, and uses fear and intimidation to get even more out of the individuals he or she oversees.
