Melissa Dawn Guides Executives to Stand in Their Power and Become the Powerful Leaders They Know They Are Meant to Be

Melissa Dawn is a renowned executive coach who supports executives in stepping into their full power by harnessing her 20+ years of corporate experience, 10+ years of coach training, and 8,000+ hours of hands-on coaching. 

Through her inspirational, fun and holistic approach, Melissa guides executives, teams and organizations to get to the heart of what holds them back, uncover what fuels them, and step into their full power, so that they can show up with confidence, courage, clarity and connection. Many of today’s executives and high-level leaders appear to have it all together. Underneath, they’re often struggling with these key elements, and with knowing their worth. Melissa takes a comprehensive approach to supporting and guiding executives in recognizing their inherent worth, stepping into their power, developing their confidence and clarity, harnessing positive influence, and fully becoming the leader, and the person, they know they are meant to be.

Melissa began her career as a Promotional Assistant, worked her way up to VP of Marketing, and went on to build her coaching firm, CEO of Your Life, from the ground up. Throughout her journey, she worked through mergers and acquisitions, layoffs and reorganizations, has hired and led teams, handled change management, worked across cultures and countries (including 4 years working abroad), led difficult conversations, broadened her comfort zones, and developed her experience with positive influence, team engagement, employee development and more.

With both a corporate and coaching background, Melissa leads with compassion in supporting clients with whatever is coming up (personally and professionally), and to act as a soundboard – someone to help look at things differently, navigate uncertainty, build confidence and clarity in decision-making, and take unconditional responsibility for how they show up and the impact they want to create. 

Melissa is a bilingual speaker, author, trainer and coach who has worked with executives at Microsoft, Intuit, Coca-Cola, Chevron, Kroger, Pfizer, Sherwin-Williams, Bell Canada, PSP Investments, and more. She is certified by the International Coach Federation as a Master Certified Coach (MCC), Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC), a Certified Team Performance Coach (CTPC) and a Conscious Leadership Coach. She speaks English, French and conversational Spanish, holds a Bachelor of Commerce, is a contributor to the Huffington Post, Thrive Global and Entrepreneur and is regularly featured on top podcast, radio and television programs. She is the author of two books, I Attract What I Am and Why Can’t I Just Be Me?, and has been named one of Hubspot’s best business coaches internationally for 5 years running.

Today, Melissa enjoys supporting executives and groups to create powerful shifts within themselves that translate to impactful leadership within their organizations.
