Belinda MJ Brown

Executive Coach & Women Success Expert

GLOBAL CITIZEN WITH A TWIST OF FRENCH

I was born and raised in France in the late 70’s by a wonderful and loving single Mom. I grew up in a low-income neighborhood and always was an optimistic idealist. In my 20’s my friends often tried to hold me closer to the ground because they could not see what I was perceiving. I worked harder and harder not because I ought to but because I believed in my still blurry but strong vision. In 2007, I emigrate to the United States and established my life and my business.

My passion for coaching manifested in 2005, when I enlisted my first coach at age 28 years in Paris, France. It was an intriguing and powerful process reserved at the time to a limited audience of executives of top 40 companies. The process helped me to uncover the person I knew I had the potential to be and discovered a realm of unlimited opportunities. In 2010, two events lead me to believe I would stay in America for a chapter of my life. My longtime boyfriend announced he would move as well in the US after 4 years of long distance relationship, and I finally felt myself embracing the American culture enough to design a new life here. I sought the path to become an Executive Coach to hold the space for leaders – which can be anyone who has the desire to lead by choice whether the choices are related to life, career, team, relationships, or organization – wanting to experience growth and transformation in their career, their life, and their organization.

Testimonials

Belinda has assisted me to reconnect with my inner self, to remember my core values and to use those as my guiding force in my life.  She has helped me gain awareness to my weaknesses and most importantly how other people perceive my behavior.  Some of the things people think about me are not who I am at all but it was all about how I was acting – not listening (and didn’t know it), being too direct and too serious all the time. I learned active listening skills and to adjust my communication style to other people. I realized that I did not even really have to change myself – you just need to acknowledge and be aware of your own behaviors or habits. I have also learned to have some of the “courageous conversations” that are imperative to being a successful leader.  All in all, the experience of executive coaching has been a life changer for me and I have Belinda to thank for that!  I will recommend Belinda to all of my friends and leaders.

Shelli Girard, Sr Manager, Seagate Technologies

Belinda were my mirror during the sessions…I learned to face myself. I learned to watch myself. I learned to appreciate the balance of my reflection. I learned to make up with my imperfections… to become a beautiful image that appeals to me ! Then I learned to do it myself at home ! I learned to question myself to carry out what looks like a problem… It might seem simple but I would not be able to reach that motto «Go ahead!!! Go again!!! you are stronger. » without the coaching of Belinda.

 

Mathilde Vergeau, Project Manager IT, Altran

I was coming out of a burnout and was just leaving a state of high anxiety – which I wanted to quit. At the same time. I knew I wanted to change the direction of my professional life, but was unable to create any steps to move forward. This was greatly affecting my private life – mostly in handling a relationship. I felt stuck and wanted to move forward.
It was a third attempt to say yes to coaching, after two failed experiences… I brought a big challenge for Belinda and she actually took a very different approach than the previous ones to challenge me.
Because of my work with Belinda I have managed to get over anxiety, to recover fully from this burnout. Whenever I “FEEL” I am able to analyze the causes of my emotions and try to understand them. I am capable to rely more on my intuition, and this helps me a lot in my daily life. I have the confidence that what I have been looking for is waiting for me, and has never been so close. I just have to accomplish a few final steps to obtain it.
I certainly have traveled a long way – by growing more over 9 month than over the past 9 years! I’m really grateful for Belinda’s help.

Our Process

ACE IT™ Process

My initial niche was male leaders and their global organizations successfully enhance their performance in a wide range of areas including leadership transformation and organizational development. I quickly realized my clientele became more feminine and since I have been dedicating my energy and my research in developing a model to empower Women and Global Leaders. I consults with companies in the areas of organizational development, talent development and diversity management.

My areas of focus can be put into 3 general topics:

  1. Self-Awareness, Communication and Personal Branding
  2. Women Leadership Development
  3. Leadership in a Globalized and Diverse Environment

My extensive background and experience has proven to be of extreme value for my individual and corporate clients. Some of my work consists of debunking myths and addressing real challenges encountered by my female and diverse clients in the corporate environment. By becoming self-aware, developing communication skills and embracing their uniqueness, my clients can develop strategies and create new opportunities for personal growth, career success and organizational change.

My passion lies in empowering women and diverse leaders to BE who they are wherever they are so corporate cultures can shift and embrace feminine leadership and diversity development as powerful skills.


ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Founder & Creative Empowerment Officer - Equanimity Executive, LLC

2011 to present

After 15 years spent in leadership roles in various industries, both in European and American multinational organizations, I chose to open my own coaching practice, Equanimity Executive to assists diverse and emerging leaders to grow and transform not only their organizations but the community through high authentic performance, employees and teams engagement and clients’ satisfaction.

I went from a high paying corporate position to a solopreneur one and experienced loneliness, a highly competitive arena and limited financial results due to the fact the coaching industry is not regulated and extremely fragmented. This lead me to looking for creative solutions and design opportunities to expand my practice to an enterprise level. Since November 2014, I am a client of the UCF Business Incubation Program and my vision is to transform the coaching marketplace to support coaches who evolve in a highly fragmented market (92% of sole proprietors) while meeting the demand of corporations seeking for highly qualified professional coaches to support sustainable organization change.

The next couple of years will be dedicated to design the pre-scale structure for my organization and to develop and validate a prototype.


COMMUNITY LEADER
