Individual Executive Coaching

Career Play offers coaching services for people in transition and for those who desire new tools and new performances for dealing with challenging professional situations, i.e., job interviews, career change, public speaking/presentations, developing as a manager.

Trained in a cutting-edge improvisational approach to human development, Marian uses tools from the theatre to help her clients find their voice by developing a character and creating new life performances.

During her 20 years in the executive search business, Marian developed an expertise in job interview preparation, including mock interviews and career development coaching.  She makes what can be a stressful experience fun by utilizing the tools and language of improv and theatre.
