What do you do when your work life has lost its’ spark? Who do you talk to when you know you need to make a change? What would it be like if you could think out loud with a trained, confidential listener?
My specialty is 1-1 career and personal change coaching for individuals and organizations and career transition/change workshop facilitation. I have coached and supported hundreds of clients through their career transition and personal change challenges. I help clients reconnect to their core interests, develop effective decision making skills, and practice relationship building, communication, networking & interviewing skills. Along the way, I help clients re-frame challenges, put pen to paper, and develop strategies that help them break through communication and motivational barriers to find work life success.
I also coach individuals within organization to reach their personal best at work, navigate time management challenges, communication issues, prepare for performance reviews effectively, and keep their networks alive for future growth opportunities. I am certified to provide personal development insight through the Birkman Method(TM) and EQ 2.0/360(TM) assessment instruments.
My strengths as a great listener, coach, and confidential thinking partner have been build over 6 years as an entrepreneur & consultant, including 5 years as a Career Transition Coach for LHH Knightsbridge, 2 years of Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) learning, Body & Movement coach training & 20 years in Career Services at UCalgary; 16 in the Haskayne School of Business. I love learning about being human: how we navigate life and the conversations that help us be our best each day while navigating the challenges of living life and working well. I bring the human elements of personal presence, emotional intelligence, and language into helping clients define & find work life success.
One of my favourite quotes: “Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning” William Ward.

I worked with Martina as a coachee last year, and was amazed at how she was able to help me find simple solutions to situations that I was struggling with. Her style is friendly, approachable, and warm. Her approach to coaching allowed me to identify fresh new ways to think about my life, and I still find myself reflecting on some of her questions when I hit a roadblock. If you're looking for ways to improve your personal and professional performance, I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Martina!Stephanie Warner, Career Educator
Martina is kind, personable, and goes out of her way to support her clients, and others alike. She exceeded all expectation while helping me prepare for an interview. Martina spent a two-hour session with me, conducting a mock interview. She provided valuable feedback that helped me improve my answers. She also gave me advice on how to use my body and hand gestures to help me relax during an interview. As a result, I went into the actual interview feeling more confident than ever before, and I was able to use the techniques Martina taught me to relax and be myself during the interview. With more confidence networking and interviewing, I landed a great position. Thank you, Martina, for your dedication and words of encouragement.Ksenija Crnogorac, Accounting Professional
