“Start with Strengths has had a phenomenal impact on our organization and altered how I manage — making it more fun and utilizing the talents of our team members. We went from ‘jobs’ to a specific personal calling and found an outlet for each of their talents. Mary and her team help ensure my people are my most important tool. When you put your people in a position to be their best selves, it has a direct impact on the bottom line.”

Eileen McMahon, Area Director, The Carmel Hill Fund


“Mary understands our culture and our team and is like an advisor. We value her insights about our organization and how new people joining our team fit into our existing culture. She is influential in how we hire external candidates and work together internally.”

Mark Agnew, President, The Malnati Organization, Inc.


“I see Mary’s strengths assessment and candidate evaluation services as critical to any organization regardless of size or budget. It’s easy to justify the expense when you consider the cost of hiring the wrong person, and most importantly, it works. I would never consider hiring a salaried person without using her services.”

Marty Grosjean, CEO, Only Natural Pet Store


“Management teams are our most valuable resource. We consistently use Mary’s strengths assessment process as the last critical step of any hiring process.  The result has been management teams that are aligned culturally and demonstrate complimentary individual strengths appropriate for their roles.”

Megan Bent, Co-founder, Managing Director, Revelry Brands


“I wanted to take the guess work out of hiring. Mary helped us develop a formula to support our growth and build a stronger team. Working with her has been like outsourcing part of the HR component and since many small companies don’t need a full time HR person, Mary provides a valuable niche service and great benefit to those who engage with her.”

Jennifer Nemec, President, Ideation Studio


“Mary’s coaching services have really made a positive difference in my organization. Our business would excel then slow. Mary helped me to create systems to build a stronger, more consistent business. From personnel to management, she has great insights into business. I am definitely a better businesswoman and leader due to Mary’s coaching.”
