Career & leadership coach

Maria Sweitzer

Spark meaningful change in your life and career. With humour, focus and curiosity.

I help your career and talents shine in this volatile world
Coaching is an active and present-focused intervention that helps create desired changes, get clarity about life and enhance well-being.
What is coAching?
Coaching may help clients with mild and moderate forms of stress, anxiety and depression. However, therapy is recommended for clients experiencing more severe symptoms and who require a specialized form of care.
You feel stuck in your career
Your career may be something that “landed on your lap"
You are in the “career limbo”
You work a lot, you are stressed out and know that there is a better place for you that is more enjoyable. But you don’t know how to get there and what it could look like.
You didn’t necessarily plan it and it happened to you. Sometimes you are questioning - what purpose am I serving? Am I just a number here? How can I get more fulfillment from what I do?
Where you are not fully satisfied with what you have now but don’t know what the future holds. It may be a promotion, a new cool project or getting compensated better but don’t know how to activate it.

Meet Some of My Clients
Jess came to me after working with another coach. She felt out of depth with her previous coach and reached out to me.
JESS leads a big research team in a global corporation and wanted to work on enhancing team collaboration and her leadership skills. She also shared that she was stuck in her own career and plateaued at a certain level in her company. Like it happens in coaching, a client walks in with one request and, when you start unpacking it, it turns into something else. Jess realized through the coaching process that her own persona creates some of the tension on her team. She was too involved and too focused on supporting others.
We had 5 sessions with Jess and in a few months she had major breakthroughs: she changed some roles and responsibilities on her team, relentlessly worked on her own calendar and freeing up the time for herself. She started setting boundaries to focus on the work that was essential and dedicating time to her own projects and development. We also worked on her relationship with her leader helping her advocate for her future growth and career development. The results followed immediately.
“I have a stable job, it pays well, I work for a good company but I’m stuck. I no longer know what I want to do and what I’m passionate about. What is next for me?”
Kevin works for a global company and came to me with a typical ask: “I have a stable job, it pays well, I work for a good company but I’m stuck. I no longer know what I want to do and what I’m passionate about. What is next for me?” Kevin and I worked during 6 sessions where he explored options of staying with his current company or going somewhere else. We focused on paying attention to what lights him up at work creating incremental changes in his current role.
I also helped Kevin navigate several rounds of lay-offs happening at his company. As a result of our work, he decided to stay with his organization, expanded his role and had a clear idea of where he is headed next in his career. He also experienced an elevated sense of fulfillment and energy.
Bar is a highly motivated leader working for a global Tech company that a lot of people dream to work for.
that I gave her to boost her leadership presence and quiet her inner critic that had a tendency to get really loud. By the end of the program, she …got the job, she got promoted, she gained confidence in her new role, secured substantial resources for her team and new projects and felt more self-sufficient: she no longer relied on the technical experts on her team to deliver presentations and talk to the key stakeholders.
She was told that he is one of the candidates for the next level role. Bar wanted to solidify herself in the running for this position. Impostor syndrome was blooming and she needed practical tools to expand her influence across senior leadership leading big global teams. This was a 6-months coaching engagement where we went deep helping her navigate this transition. No matter how unconfident she felt pursuing her new role, she kept experimenting with tools,

I feel like I scored with Maria as a coach. She was a perfect match for me and I can’t ask for a better professional to guide me on my leadership path! Thank you for your support and feedback today and at every session! I feel prepared to ask for what I need and I feel more clear on how to speak to my organization and vision for the future. I appreciate you and the work we are doing!!
VP, Legal & Compliance
We worked with Maria for 3 months. I initially wanted to better understand where I want to go in my career and life in general. In this process I've connected to what's next for me; it’s genuine, and it’s truly reflective of me at this point in my life.
I find it fascinating to be on a road that is completely different and challenges me in ways that are not like what I do now. Also, it's refreshing to have that different experience going on. I can see how the "curious, not critical" lets me be exactly where I should be, be ok with that, and produce work in a space that is deep, moving, unexplored, and without boundaries.
I got excellent direction from Maria on how to consider passion, cause and process. I like her analytical thinking combined with a holistic approach to coaching which means to me that I'm not going to miss anything.
Director, Warner Bros./Discovery
When I started coaching with Maria, I was concerned about my stress levels and emotional state. The work that I do is challenging, high pressure and fast moving. I was frustrated and dissatisfied at work which was visible to my leadership. I felt stuck and powerless. Towards the end of the coaching program with Maria I was able to push those challenges aside and focus on the work. I learnt how to cope with stress and connect to what’s important to me as well as set healthy boundaries. I really value your contribution to this work and your care, both personally and professionally.
Plant Manager, Waste Management
Sessions with Maria are always helpful. I feel like each time I always walk away with new ideas. She helps me finesse my leadership style and jog my memory on management concepts that I had forgotten about. I am a better leader as a result of this coaching program with Maria.
Production Leader, Mars
I appreciated new ways of looking into my current work situation. I’ve gained a different perspective which is much more powerful and clear. I’ve also got the feedback from senior management that I am leading with more authority which is the focus area of our coaching program. Thank you, Maria!

Maria has far exceeded my expectations. She works beyond just helping you get "another job" and has opened my eyes to so many possibilities. She has helped stretch and yet support me in this journey. So grateful to have found her!
