Marie-Jeanne Juilland is a highly seasoned coach bringing 25-plus years of combined experience in the C-Suite and as an advisor to leaders at fast-scaling and established organizations – in the US and internationally. Leaders of varied race, gender and sexual orientation repeatedly seek her out because of the unique lens she brings to her coaching: she was often the first or only woman in all male executive teams, she is an immigrant, she has raised her two Black children – now young adults – in the United States.
Marie-Jeanne works with clients who are willing to move out of their comfort zone – with courage, discipline and humility. Clients who invite ongoing critical feedback from multiple stakeholders, and understand that changing behavior and perception does not happen overnight. Is this process at times unnerving? Of course. At other times, fun and invigorating? Definitely!
When working with rising stars and founders, Marie-Jeanne focuses on rapidly building leadership skills, influence and executive presence. With more seasoned leaders, she helps them boost impact and resilience during critical transitions. As a senior-level ICF certified coach, Marie-Jeanne also works with intact teams, or cohorts of peer leaders, to build greater competence, trust, impact.
Her clients range from well-funded fast-growth startups to Fortune 100: GoogleX, Facebook, Uber, SAP, Dropbox, Coinbase, Webflow, Hingehealth, Turo, Ximedica, Gilead, Genentech, the Swiss Innovation Center, Canadian Consulate, Wells Fargo, Stanford University, the YMCA.
