About Us

Mari Carmen Pizarro Headshot
Author, Speaker and High Performance Executive Coach

Hello, this is Mari Carmen Pizarro.

I am the Founder and Lead Coach for Whole Leadership Systems, a specialty consulting firm dedicated to developing High Performing Executives and Leaders. I am a former Human Resources Executive, certified High Performance Coach and Integrative Wellness Practitioner with more than 25 years of experience in leadership philosophy and human performance.

My roles have given me significant experience fostering international relationships and bridging multi-cultural and diversity gaps with a focus on team unity. I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish and our firm provides customized solutions in either language.

Countless leaders and organizations have entrusted me and my team to help them leap to new heights in areas such as emotional intelligence, leadership awareness, professional influence and team dynamics. Our goal is to provide you, your organization or your team with a complete coaching system that delivers measurable results. We use more than 25 years of progressive expertise in leadership philosophy and human performance to spawn effective, purpose driven leaders. The methodology we have perfected focuses on three main pillars: Assess, Remove, Rebuild.

Assess – Perform a comprehensive evaluation of the stakeholders (leaders and/or their teams) to determine strengths, challenges, and areas of opportunity.

Remove the Barriers – Become aware, validate and eliminate individual fears and team obstacles that don’t support the organization’s purpose and vision.

Rebuild – Reconstruct and invigorate individuals and/or teams with a tailored approach that includes long-term goals and accountability systems.

What others are saying: “Mari Carmen is a new thought leader. As an author, blogger, coach, and speaker, Mari Carmen has a distinctive ability to inspire and develop positive new behaviors and core leadership competencies with her direct and candid style and compelling sense of intuition.”
