I came across Mark Federman through a referral on LinkedIn, and it was one of the best things that’s happened to me in my career!  I have been trying to execute a career transition for some time, but I have found myself frustrated and in need of some sound advice, and frankly, some soul-searching. Mark provided me both, and so much more. Mark is a deeply compassionate person and sincerely desires to help others. We’ve all heard the adage, “Listen not to reply, but to understand.”  Mark truly embodies this principle and takes very seriously his responsibility to first understand his client before he can give them guidance. Our sessions were rich with intuitive, relevant, and thought-provoking questions, meaningful and profitable dialogue, and valuable assignments that sparked much-needed introspection and resulted in a greater understanding of myself, my goals, and what is most important to me. I can’t thank Mark enough for the confidence, motivation and clarity I now have as I continue to work toward my career goals. He has my highest recommendation, and my gratitude.

Mark knows how to get to the crux of the matter — whether through group facilitation or professional coaching — through excellent listening, probing questions, and an ability to think on his feet. He is positive and appreciative at every stage. His tools are solid, so he can alter his course when he senses an opportunity. Great intelligence.

Senior Leader, non-profit community agency

You have definitely been a very unique teacher and guide to me. I relate to your philosophy and appreciate that you do live up to it. I try to live by the approach of kindness towards self and others and, in doing so, I think you and I have a lot in common in that regard. I will continue to strive to do my best at my career to get to the state where I can truly effect change in the lives of people, in the same way that I have had happened to me in my life. That is my goal above all others.

Mark taught a one-day Organizational Behaviour session in our 2016 Media Leadership Program. His approach to the material was well-balanced between theory and practice; providing insightful approaches on how to cultivate the best in people. Mark is a complete professional in his approach to teaching but manages to be very accessible by incorporating his own flair and personality into the session; resulting in a very engaging learning environment.

Executive Director, Women in Film & Television – Toronto (WIFT-T)

Mark is an illuminating speaker, provocative presenter and incisive coach. His ability to make sense of organizational behaviour from an individual point of view to a larger dynamic corporate entity is remarkable. His thoughts on the workplace and people within it are relevant, timely, humanistic and creative. He allows one to reimagine a workplace environment where workers thrive and ultimately drive success at a time when 20th century business models no longer make sense.

Mark’s course amazes me that just after 2 days I can put the learning to use and it seems natural. Thank you for a fantastic session! For the first time in a very long time, I’m inspired!

Coaching for Reengagement Attendees

Mark is incredibly insightful and a keen listener; he challenged my thinking and beliefs. Through visualization, he expertly guided me through different stages of my life. That allowed me to identify and crush mental barriers, find comfort in my natural strengths, and learn how to use them to generate more of what I want in my life: self-acceptance and direction.
