Marsha Hughes-Rease

Marsha is an executive coach with 25+ years of progressive leadership experience and 15+ years of coaching executives and senior leaders. She believes that coaching helps leaders “leverage” their strengths, enhance their leadership presence, and increase their overall effectiveness to optimize organizational performance and create joy in the workplace.

Although her approach is strengths based, Marsha also helps her clients identify and address ineffective patterns in their leadership style, recognize habits that can influence and mobilize others, and increase the collective alignment and commitment of their team to organizational goals. Her coaching has helped leaders prepare for upward mobility and increased leadership responsibility, successfully navigate transitions, and create a leadership identity reputation that truly reflects their values, talents, and desired impact on others.

Apart from running a successful coaching business and being heavily consulted for her expertise in organization development, Marsha is an adjunct faculty member of Georgetown University’s Transformational Leadership program and Duke Corporate Education program. She has co-authored several articles on organizational change and been invited to present at a number of national and international conferences. She is an active member of the International Coaching Federation, International Leadership Association, a Fellow with the Harvard Institute of Coaching, and a Guide for Chief, an organization designed for women in the C-suite and VPs to strengthen their leadership and magnify their influence. Marsha is a graduate of the Fielding University Evidence-Based Coaching program and is a PCC certified coached. Committed to making a difference, Marsha participates in several community social justice programs including increasing access to healthy food in Northern Virginia.
