About Mary Ellen Ball

Mary Ellen Ball
I am unwavering in my commitment to connect people to their purpose and organizations to their vision.

I am a Certified Professional Coach through iPEC, a CEO with 18 years of dynamic leadership, strategic planning, capacity building, and executive coaching experience, and a perfectly flawed human person.

I am known for my energetic style, assisting organizations and teams to move through change and conflict with courage and clarity. I understand that people and relationships are everything. We must grow and nurture cultures based on clear and shared values to reach and exceed all goals.

My individual and small group coaching programs help clients disrupt the cycle of overwhelm and underwhelm – the cycle of the limiting beliefs. I am equal parts woo-woo and Type A, having studied Public Policy at the University of Chicago but never really found my calling in econometrics or statistics. Simply stated, I love meditation and my complex excel model on key performance indicators.

My style is straightforward, compassionate, and far from half-assed. I may curse but it always seems perfectly placed, so I am easily forgiven. I am infectiously optimistic, abundantly energetic and I know I have found my calling helping clients discover their own power and purpose.

I live in Evanston, Illinois and share my life with my two radical kids and a brilliant partner who is the president of my fan club. I keep trying to foster senior dogs but end up adopting them. I am the luckiest on all accounts.
