Note: Each session will build on one another, but will focus on a specific topic should you decide to attend only one session.

About the Facilitators:

Sofia Adler, MA is an Ivy-League trained coach and mindfulness meditation teacher who empowers her clients to navigate change with confidence. Leveraging the power of perspective using mindfulness and mindset work, Sofia will help you get to know and understand yourself on a deeper level. What are your common patterns, subconscious limiting beliefs, and habits? How are they holding you back? Sofia will help you transform from feeling like the victim of your circumstances into the conscious creator and leader of your life— the life you want to lead, rather than the life you think you should have. Sofia provides 1:1 coaching, meditation and professional development workshops for individuals and companies across the country, including Rent the Runway, Atlantic Records, Rebecca Taylor, WeWork, Netflix, Bombas, Glossier, The Guggenheim Museum, and more.

She supports her clients to evolve their leadership style and capabilities, develop high-performing teams, and manage change. Marsha spent 14 years as a global marketing leader with companies like Michael Kors and David Yurman. Native to New York, Marsha is a facilitator with Rutgers University Division of Continuing Studies, a mentor and coach at The New School Impact Entrepreneur Initiative, and a Pod Leader at Declare. Her expertise includes coaching, facilitation, building relationships, developing culture and teams, and mentoring. Marsha’s method involves context-specific and detailed preparation. This contains best practice approaches from neuroscience, management and leadership research and business-specific challenges. Her technique provokes thought in an open, trusting and safe space, which allows her to positively challenge and guide her clients in support of their growth.
