Marilyn O’Hearne is well sought after and has successfully touched every aspect of the work industry from government to nonprofit/NGO to corporate. This provides a wealth of experience in establishing sustainable change through her proven methods, interculturally, transformationally. Her focus on the whole organisation maximises the coaching experience and impact.
She explains her method of coaching, “Breakthrough!, (achieves) results through increasing cultural intelligence including breaking free from bias, reducing costly conflict, which can be the root of up to 80% of organizational difficulties.”
Having the ability to encourage and ignite transformational development with breakthrough results enables the organisation and executive team to quickly cut through to the core issues and co-develop sustainable success.
It is exactly this organisational trait, to inspire trust and confidence using a multicultural lens and focusing on the client’s being, behavior, the interplay of their behavior within the entire organizational system that Marilyn’s coaching method has delivered time and again.
“Working with organizations for extended contracts, results not only in breakthrough leadership and prosperity but also a transformative coaching culture which leads to greater talent retention. My centered, authentic approach provides a focused, safe place from which to launch breakthrough results. My culturally intelligent approach, with confidence in my client’s ability to transform, provides a launching pad for breakthrough transformational results.”
“Remember that organisations lose a lot of money, by this unconscious bias… that prevents people from reaching their full potential”

Interculturally Intelligent At The Office
Marilyn’s centered, culturally intelligent coaching not only increases awareness of the intercultural root of drama and conflict, but then follows up and develops customised solutions specific to the corporate culture. Her presence nurtures mindfully, with the aim to shift culture.
“I believe in your ability to transform your organization…”
“It is impossible to not work interculturally!’ considering gender, age, ethnicity and nationality, not to mention religion and cultural traits, I seek to continually increase my cultural intelligence: both awareness as well as capacity to function effectively, interculturally.”
Marilyn expands on Presence Based Coaching, quoting Doug Silsbee: “Centering is an internal process of …connecting with ourselves, and becoming aware and present. It is a living process of reorganization that shifts us from a state of being triggered or responding automatically into being self-generating, resourceful, & creative. When we are centered, we are alert, connected, present, & ready for whatever is next.”
