Your authentic, unique leadership, a different way

Mark works with clients who are highly self-aware and aspire to continually grow and change for the sake of themselves, their people and the businesses they are entrusted to lead. He serves as a learning partner for executives and leaders by coaching them to redesign their conversations and relationships in order to lead with more clarity and impact. He specializes in working with executives and leaders challenged with: feeling stressed and overwhelmed from over commitment; teams with inefficient coordination and fractured relationships; and distrust in relationships which dramatically diminish work speed and negatively impact all results. His work with clients leads to teams and work cultures that are more efficient, enjoyable and authentic. Mark’s clients describe him as accepting and validating, while at the same time challenging and direct in ways that inspire his clients’ commitment to take courageous action and grow. He uses a balanced intellectual/emotional/somatic approach that creates a powerful environment for lasting behavioral change to take root. 



Put simply, one-on-one coaching is a learning partnership between Mark and the client. He supports them in creating sustainable behavior change in the areas they choose. They create that learning by getting clarity and expanding the client’s self-awareness, followed by the commitment to new practices that produce the results the clients want.

As a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, I am passionate about helping leaders and teams create transformational change within their lives and their organizations. Based out of Nashville, Tennessee since 1998, I offer executive coaching, workshop facilitation and public speaking services to individual clients, teams and organizations across the United States.

I do what I do because I believe there is too much unnecessary suffering in organizations and I want to eliminate it. I believe much of it is due to ineffective, though not ill-intentioned, leaders who are ill equipped to handle the rapid change and chaos that comes with taking on a leadership role. In short, many of them need the support and learning offered by a trusted outsider or coach, and I want to be that person.

My overarching goal is to provide the support leaders need to take action to move forward with clarity, eliminate unnecessary suffering, and help them design a more peaceful and fulfilling professional life.

What Mark's Clients Say


"Working with Mark Robertson is one of the best things I have done for my career. Managing people is difficult, and communicating effectively up and down the org chart can mean the difference between a promotion and an exit interview. Mark’s approach to the challenge of communicating is unique, as he taught me better, more effective ways to engage my colleagues, board members, and investors in conversations that coordinate action. I am a better leader and a more effective CEO because I am, and will continue to be, a student of Mark."
