What We Offer

Our consultants are experienced business executives who understand the first-hand challenges facing your executive. We will work together with them and their team to navigate through a life-altering time. Every one of our consultants are survivors of personal catastrophes and are trained to support your executives and the teams. Our customized team approach considers the professional as well as the personal demands, as well as the mind, body and spirit of the leaders.


BLTS Coaching

It's rare to find a business coach who understands the unique situations that occur when a high-performing business leader suffers a personal catastrophe. Traditional leadership coach training does not prepare a coach to handle this type of situation. Grief counseling alone is insufficient. Grief counselors can't help with quarterly results. The crossroads of traumatic life events usher in personal  as well as professional 
consequences. BLTS coach training delivers the tools necessary to successfully support business leaders and staff. BLTS is the only executive coaching firm prepared to provide exactly the
right combination of support. We provide a holistic, customized approach which supports the individual as well as the team.



Crossroads Policy

Solutions for those uncomfortable topics no business person wants to talk about.

Organizations don't recognize the gamble they take with antiquated bereavement policy, and the lack of employee focused support during times of personal catastrophe. With the extensive cost of replacing high-performing senior leaders, forward-thinking corporations seek our our help to develop a best-in-class Crossroads Policy.



Certified Training

BLTS partners with the Center for Executive Coaching to deliver best in class, certified ACTP Coaching program for Human Resource Leaders and Talent Development Managers around the globe.

Our work with our clients speaks for itself. 

Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping me to transition into a new career after I suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2015. Her coaching and counsel helped me to make the jump to entrepreneurship after working in the wind power business for over a decade. She's a great listener who challenged me to take stock of my strengths, recognize my weaknesses - and get back out there! Thank you Mary Ellen for your compassion, insights and encouragement” “ - Co Founder, COO



"Going in to my first session with the team at BLT, I walked in the door a semi-broken, frustrated man. After about 15 minutes, I realized the
quality of people I was in the room with. Through their active listening, positive/constructive feedback and insight, I walked out of the building with my head held high, back on track, ready to tackle my ambitions. I walked in the door a 2 out of 5 on the happiness scale. After a
memorable 60 minutes, I walked out the door a 4 out of 5. I highly recommend this team of wonderful people."  --President, Founder, Trainer
