Leaders may be born,
GREAt leaders are
My name is Maria Wade, although some of you may know me as Maria Dvurechenskaya.
As a coach, I am committed to my clients' higher purpose and work to honor their natural creativity, resourcefulness, and inner light. I combine a wide range of coaching techniques with over 15 years of experience as an executive leader across multiple industries. My approach is based on adult learning theory, positive psychology, whole-brain thinking, and the 3CP Columbia University model.
My clients are people who have already achieved the impossible. They strive to produce great results, impact the world, better themselves, and create cultures where people thrive, desire to contribute, and are valued. We're learning together how to lead with integrity and grace.
If you are looking to make a difference, unlock your greatest potential and invest in your own personal and professional development, you are in the right place.
Welcome to the start of your transformation journey.
HoW i CAN help you
Whatever your individual reason, whatever individual goals you'd like to achieve: to improve your work-life balance, to make a smooth transition between roles or companies, to further your career, to increase your leadership capacity, to gain a fresh perspective, to forge relationships, to understand your strengths, or clarify a current situation, we will work together to make your goals come true.
Group and Team Coaching
Successful executive coaching positively impacts leaders' effectiveness and business performance. I work with leaders through challenges they face helping them transform learning into positive change in their own and teams' performance. My clients are motivated by a sense of worth and purpose in their life. I help them work and live their whole life increasing their sense of fulfillment and organizational effectiveness.
Assessments can often be a valuable tool for the coaching process. Together, we will select assessments and tools that suit you and your style. The right assessment may help you raise self-awareness and broaden your perspective, let you understand how you show up and how others see you, identify your thinking preferences, and more. By shining a light on the underlying thinking patterns and preferences that drive your current behavior, you have access to new choices and possibilities.
How i work
My coaching process is based on the Columbia University's three-phase
Coaching Process Model (3CP). My approach is based on adult learning theory.
I adhere to high standards of ethical conduct focusing on
client's context, agenda, and interests.
Professionalism, thoughtfulness, humor, and endless support
are the base of my coaching philosophy.
Life and Executive Coach
"In a sea of coaches what sets Maria apart is her unique combination of first hand industry experience and the wonderful positive energy she brings to every session. Always curious and kind and a consummate professional, she has the skills to guide her clients in a wide range of situations. What impresses me personally is her continuous pursuit of knowledge. She is always expanding her education and skill set as a coach and is one of my top resources for the latest coaching conferences and seminars. This is a coach who knows how to grow and is not afraid to share that with her clients."

""When we are working with Maria, we progressively move toward to my intended goals. To my surprise and delight I found myself gaining new insights and pushing the boundaries of what I had thought possible. I've created my own value system that has formed the foundation for everything in my life. We have been working with Maria for just three months and already accomplished so much. I've completed a draft of my doctoral dissertation having previously struggled with it for five years, received a number of attractive job offers and landed my dream one, and even given up smoking!"
"In today's fast-paced world, it's sometimes quite difficult to respond to all its challenges without expending a great amount of time, money, physical and mental sources. Through our work with Maria, I've started achieving more complex goals in my professional and personal life with less effort. I do appreciate Maria's talent and look forward to our further partnering."
