"Do you need a coach whose style can help you invest in relationships that will pay lifelong dividends? Marek is that coach, and I feel privileged and blessed to have had Marek as my coach. He also took the extra effort to listen and really get to know me. His EQ intuition is rare and, at the same time, provides practical tools to build and strengthen relationships. He helped me consider different perspectives, create relevant action plans, and kept me accountable. Marek encourages. He motivates. He inspires. Because of how much of an impact Marek made in my life, I am forever grateful."

"Darlene is the definition of an excellent coach! She inspired me to explore my own potential and then motivated me to aspire and expand to my highest level of excellence. She was personable and patient as she coached me on my patterns of thoughts, feelings, and actions. She also helped me understand my default temperament or auto-pilot personality preferences. With these understandings I discovered and learned how to coach myself (self-directing & self-correcting) in all aspects of my leadership roles as Executive Director of Crews Home for Girls, Inc. Her coaching has allowed me to be present with my thoughts and feelings, which has led to improved results in all areas of my life! Lastly, Darlene’s approach is from a deep place that honors both the humanness and the spiritual part of our journey – this was very important to me as they are both inter-twined . I look to her as a very special woman and coach! I fully appreciate her and endorse her!"
Diana Crews, MA (Crews Home for Girls Co-Founder)
What Marek brought to my coaching agreement was Availability, Openness, Value, and Encouragement. Let me expand: Availability, he was flexible with his time and with his coaching approach. By Openness I mean he could navigate between a structured approach and a free-flowing approach, molding to the immediate need. Additionally, he appropriately brought forward a Spiritual perspective, which provided me with a solid and familiar platform. Of solid Valuewas his ability to bring forward stories that linked his experience with my current environment. His ability to ‘paint alternatives’ to my situational dynamics and perspective was extremely valuable. Lastly, I was provided a strong platform to take action, his Encouragementprovided me a confidence or freedom to move forward. This was a time of awareness and perspective building leading to new choices – I recommend Marek if you are looking for personal growth as a leader, as a person!

I believe it is in ones best interest to engage a coach. Hiring Purpose Centered was a wise decision I made both personally and business. Marek and Darlene work with our team and advise us in court settings and clients emotional states while going through difficult issues in their lives.

"In my entire life, I have met hundreds upon hundreds of people, very few of these people have impacted me like Marek and Darlene have. If there was glitter spread across the floor in a pitch black room, no one would be able to see the glitter. But if you were to place a small light next to the floor, the glitter near the light would shine and sparkle, reflecting light on their own. Marek and Darlene have this very effect on people, however, they never take ownership of being this light, they would say “the glitter shined on it’s own, it just needed to be shown how”. I was once a student at a troubled teens boarding school five years ago, my life was nothing to be proud of, I went to high school with no idea who I was, I played an unhealthy amount of world of warcraft, all my friends sold drugs to whoever would buy them, and my relationship with my family was nonexistent. I was constantly attempting to find out who I was, but did not know how, being an easily influenced person, Marek and Darlene could have easily told me who I was, but instead they taught me to find out for myself. To test my limits and push myself beyond what I believed possible. I am now a confident young man, who is enlisted in the army as a combat medic, who has faced many trials but trudged through with the core teachings that Marek and Darlene have instilled within me."
“I can only give my highest recommendation to Marek & Darlene. As educators, encouragers, and truth-tellers, they are able to blend their very diverse training and coaching skills to meet the needs of those organizations that are perched to take the next steps in development.”
Colleen McGauley – Executive Director, CASA of Kern County, CA
"Marek exceeds my expectations as an executive coach. He works to understand an individual as a person as well as a professional, and customizes his coaching & teaching through a variety of activities including self assessments, real life learnings, and action planning. His perspective and talent for probing with the right questions has proved invaluable in developing areas such as leadership presence and organizational skills in a transforming business environment. Best of all, he reinforces his teachings to ensure understanding which has delivered demonstrated results in performance."
