Marlene’s Core Values are:
Fairness, Partnership and Honesty

She is not afraid to ask the tough questions to get to the core of an issue and partner with her clients to find solutions. The result is long-term success for the individual and the organization. Marlene works with highly talented and successful C-level executives who want perceptive feedback to accelerate their performance. She looks past the title and into the person, giving them support they need to grow themselves, their people and their companies.
Marlene has spent the past 25 years working with leadership teams transforming how they work together using accountability-based communication and collaboration tools.

She is a positive change agent, who believes that everyone can have fulfillment and top performance if they do the work.

My work with Marlene Clark and the Momentum staff has not only transformed my business, but my life as well. As a leader in my organization, I don’t get the personal performance feedback that people who have supervisors often receive. Marlene helps me look at my strengths and weaknesses, and together we develop a strategy for action to make positive change…. I’ve learned that the work I do has a positive and enduring ripple effect through my staff.… I am convinced that this type of consulting is no longer a ‘nice to have’ for executives, but a ‘need to have.’ …I’ve learned how to be a better communicator as an employer, a wife, a mother and a friend. There is no dollar value you can put on this. It has been a priceless and life changing experience for me which I would highly recommend.

Since participating in Momentum’s Executive Edge, I’m sleeping better and my productivity is through the roof! My listening has shifted. It’s actually made holding people to account a lot easier. I find I am able to spot the underlying issues and deal with them. I have found that my internal voice is much quieter now, so it’s created a capacity to focus and get things done. With my brain not going all the time, I am finding it easier to relax. I have definitely shifted from feeling victimized to a real place of accountability. It has been liberating!

I was blown away by the results from Marlene. It was so much more than I expected. Having an objective party made all the difference in addressing the team dynamic with their manager. One huge take-away was the trust that got established. This has been so valuable, since trust can be hard to earn, even after many years.
