Maryann Hennessey is President of New Frontiers Leadership Coaching, an executive coaching and leadership development company that specializes in change management within an organizational setting. Leveraging her 15+ years of leadership experience in the corporate setting, Maryann’s focus is on helping leaders undertake the transformation and reinvention that is often needed to bring about a more successful and sustainable future for themselves, their organizations and those they lead. A former executive on Wall Street, her approach aligns a bottom-line sensibility with the people side of change management.
With a focus on the development of the "Inner Leader" and creating an ownership culture, Maryann works with clients, from the boardroom to the rank and file, to articulate and realize the bigger and more compelling vision that they each hold for themselves, their teams and organizations. She does this by assisting them in gaining clarity and confidence such that they are able to undertake more conscious, purposeful and successful action, cut through the clutter to create and forge a path forward, and break through barriers to success. The result is that they are empowered to reach their full potential regardless of position and create a better future in the midst of uncertainty and change.
Maryann recently partnered with The Alternative Board (TAB) facilitating and coaching business-owner peer advisory boards.
