Leah B. Mazzola, PhD, BCC, ACC

Founder & Managing Director

As a scholar, I explore the ways experiences and environments influence perspectives, decision-making, and behavior, and how to succeed through positive change despite barriers. As a coach, I help young people maximize their personal and professional potential, or process through positive, long-term change. As a coach trainer, I combine expertise in research, development, and mentoring to help new coaches master a coaching approach that fits who they are and who they serve.
