My Story

Melissa Eisler
Leadership & Career Coach, ACC, NCC

Curiosity and ambition. These traits have fueled my personal and professional life for as long as I can remember. Whether traveling, writing, or working with my clients to help them gain insights, the curious side of me is constantly asking myself, “What can I learn here?” and the ambitious side of me is always calling out “Let’s take this to the next level!” These two attitudes describe how I approach my work as a coach, and how I’ve approached my life.

Certified as a Leadership and Career Coach by the International Coach Federation and Newfield Network, I am dedicated to helping people reach their highest potential. I work with leaders and rising stars who want to bring a more mindful and confident approach to their careers and leadership presence.

Prior to coaching, my ambition fueled a successful career in content strategy. As director of a team of content creators, “What can we learn here?” and “Let’s take this to the next level!” were woven into the fabric of our team. With curiosity and ambition, I led editorial teams to grow quickly and engage digital audiences effectively through the changing tides of Internet publishing.

These traits naturally led me to launch a passion project in 2014 – www.MindfulMinutes.com – a blog about mindfulness and life balance in the digital age. In 2016, I published the book, The Type A’s Guide to Mindfulness: Meditation for Busy Minds and Busy People, which turned out to be a #1 bestseller on Amazon. I’m also a certified meditation instructor, certified yoga instructor, and enjoy leading classes, workshops, lectures, and trainings about mindfulness for leaders.

I have always been fascinated by human behavior, cultures, and the way people live, work, and communicate in different parts of the world — and what we can learn from our differences to apply to our own communities and lives. I have traveled to more than 30 countries, speak two languages, and feel that travel has enabled me to broaden my perspective in valuable ways.

Another one of my passions is transformation and personal growth. My own experiences and transitions through loss, grief, careers, and relationships have fueled my desire to step out of my comfort zone, overcome my fears, and search for meaning — and help others do the same.

I specialize in leadership development and career coaching. This includes helping clients develop self-confidence, improve their communication skills, find the right career path, strike a healthy work-life balance, and become more effective at achieving the things they want to achieve. The flavors of “What can we learn here?” and “Let’s take this to the next level!” are very present in my coaching conversations.

I blend my curiosity, ambition, and nearly 15 years of experience in the corporate world, with my background in mindfulness to help my clients become more mindful and confident leaders and reach their goals. Are you ready to take your career and leadership skills to the next level? I’d be thrilled to support you through the process.
