“Markey Read gave me the tools to move forward with my personal and professional development with kindness, flexibility, and insight. She listened and discerned where there were opportunities for change, while keeping me grounded at the practical level. Her direct questions and expertise helped me to resolve my ambivalence and clarify my values and goals while staying open to new possibilities. She connected me with other professionals who were generous with their time in sharing their experiences with me– truly an invaluable resource! Through my work with Markey, I arrived at a deeper understanding of my personality type, which is integral to my satisfaction in work and life. Ultimately, working with Markey allowed me to develop a vision and plan of action to expand my career in the areas which bring me a sense of purpose and joy, while continuing to grow, learn, and earn in my current profession. Thanks to Markey Read, I am moving forward! “

“Markey is a powerhouse presenter and facilitator. Markey presents information in an easy-to-understand format and appeals to vast learning styles. She’s taught a number of sessions with us at the Center for Women & Enterprise to clients across the entrepreneurial spectrum. Markey comes equipped with excellent content and takeaways. As an expert facilitator, Markey is also often sought to emcee events. She’s got an excellent sense of humor which, when combined with her ability to effectively deliver business content, makes her a very valuable member of any coaching, instructor, and curriculum team.”

“There are many people certified to administer and train with the MBTI assessment, but the number of MBTI Master Trainers who are deeply steeped in Type and its effective application to our daily work and personal lives–the list of these people is very short, and Markey Read is up at the top of this list. A rarity in the OD field, Markey is a thought-leader who is able to go as deeply into her subject as her learners need without losing sight of application and practicality. As a long-time trainer and consultant, myself, I’m clear that there are not many trainers/consultants I would send “in my place,” but any one of my clients would be lucky to work with Markey Read.”

“Markey helped me when I lost my job of 10 years in 2020. She helped me clarify what I actually wanted from my next position, from what type of industry I wanted to work in, to the corporate culture I would be most comfortable in, as well as defining what is important to me personally.

Her workbook, Charting the Course & Landing the Job, proved to be a valuable tool in helping me prepare for interviews and salary negotiations. Markey also helped me refine my resume and strengthen my LinkedIn profile.

Additionally, she helped me with everything from how best to set up my office for videoconferencing, to how to angle the camera for best effect for on-line interviews.

Markey made herself available to answer questions and kept me positive during my job search. I managed to find a new job that aligned perfectly with the goals that we set together!

She is genuine and honest, and I recommend her services to anyone in the market for a job or career change.”

“I’ve participated in many trainings and workshops led by Markey, and each time, I’m impressed by how skillfully she leads the attendees to absorb new information and discover new ways to work as a team. Her workshops are typically full of “aha” moments, even for those with years of experience in the professional world. In meetings, her leadership style ensures — in a very friendly way — that all attendees remain focused on the matter at hand and are engaged and participating in the discussions.”

Markey’s engaging, creative style and her personal enthusiasm inspire even the most reserved participants. I give Markey my strongest recommendation without hesitation. If you work with her, you will find out why.”

“I worked with Markey in 1:1 coaching for several months during 2020-2021. I was feeling stuck in my career–working at a large corporate law firm for several years that didn’t feel representative of my values or personality. I knew that I needed to make a change to find more fulfillment and purpose, but I had no clue where to begin. Markey’s coaching methodology, insights and steadfast encouragement really helped me to look inward to figure out what was most important to me and how I could move towards a career more aligned with my personal values. She also worked with me every step of the way as I searched for and landed a new position at a small innovative organization that is much more interesting and exciting to me. She transformed my resume, practiced interviewing with me, and gave me great advice on how to negotiate my job offer to get the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Markey to any of my closest friends and family.”
