The principal coach at Coach You is me, Marien Perez. In 2007 I founded Coach You to help others become clearer thinkers and better leaders.
I work with leaders up to C-level to uncover their natural leadership abilities and to develop their day-to-day leadership skills. I work with ambitious leaders who want to create lasting change among their people, and see it ripple out across the world.
I’m fluent in English and Spanish, which means I can coach in either language
For the most part, I conduct all the coaching sessions personally, either one-to-one or in small groups. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you need more than one coach (for example, for a corporate project involving several departments or locations), that’s easily arranged. I work with a pool of over 100 fully qualified coaches with practices spread throughout the world. I can call on their services whenever we need them.
“Marien has a brilliant ability to support and guide individuals through a process of change.”
“I’m a professional coach, someone who helps people bring out the best in their lives. I don’t have a magic wand, but I do have a boundless interest in human possibility. The buzz I get from helping clients explore their untapped talents and unfulfilled creativity never diminishes”
Techniques and motivation
Although my background is in science, it’s human nature that fascinates me. After university I went into education, and set up a ‘learn to learn’ business that evolved into leadership coaching. I found what I wanted to do when I discovered that far too many leaders never discover their leadership potential. A scientific background provides me with the rigor and method of a systems approach, often surprising people with accurate insights. Having experience in education enables me to quickly identify what a team or an individual needs
History and background
I have spent the last 15 years working with teams, leaders and individuals across Europe, USA, Middle East and Asia. As a coach, I am recognised by the International Coaching Federation as a Master Certified Coach (MCC), a credential that represents the highest level of achievement in coaching. In addition I’m a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and the British Psychological Society.
Although my training has included many coaching techniques (NLP, REBT, CBT), nowadays all my work is rooted on the 3 Principles approach. I collaborate with coaches around the world, with several consulting firms and with Oxford University. My work with them has involved some of the world’s most famous names in IT, finance, logistics, education, engineering, healthcare, legal services, management and strategic consulting, as well as the world’s best-known business schools.
