Professional Biography:

When Maren walks into the room, you know it. She is a natural and dynamic leader one is drawn to for her energy, charisma and her diverse knowledge and background.

Her experience in coaching top performers has brought her clients in diverse areas: from Fortune 500 companies, to U.S. Government, to leaders in the Arts. Maren’s clients are consistently recognized for improved relationships and moving large projects forward swiftly and effectively. Her focus is on developing her clients’ interpersonal and communication skills so that they can lead their teams with a higher degree of engagement and effectiveness.

Prior to coaching as owner of a management consultant company, Maren worked with clients such as the Annenberg Foundation, White House Project, AIG and Blackstone Group. Standout projects include the management of the International Women Leaders Global Security Conference and Initial Public Offerings for Blackstone Group and Genworth Financial.

In her twenties, Maren coached an innovative dance team to win the National Championship within six months of inception, then toured internationally training thousands in advanced technique. She is a champion herself who understands that mastery in one’s field takes commitment, structure, training, passion and support. It is this passion and drive that she fosters in her coaching clients.

As an Executive Coach, she combines her commitment to excellence, ability to read situations and people, project management skills and inspirational style in order to propel her clients far beyond what they believe to be possible.

Arden Coaching:

Arden Coaching is a team of 17 experienced coaches who share a powerful and effective method for cultivating positive change within their clients. Each of our coaches sets out to strengthen leadership within each organization they partner with so that both the individual and the company prosper.

Founded in 2007

President Maren Perry founded Arden Coaching in 2007. As true leaders tend to do, Maren’s unique practices and successes with her clients at Arden attracted peers and followers, other great coaches who shared her coaching style and vision. As these talented individuals joined Maren’s practice, a natural evolution took place.

The Arden Coaching team is made up of top coaching talent who challenge, encourage, and inspire your company’s top executives. We have been improving the leadership skills of company leaders big and small, local and global for the past nine years. In 2013, Arden Coaching was recognized as a Certified Women’s Owned Business.

What’s in a Name?

Many of our clients are curious as to why we chose the name Arden Coaching. We’ve found that the answer is one that defines us as a team of dedicated coaches quite well.

Arden refers to the Forest of Arden from Shakespeare’s As You Like It. The image of a tunneling forest echoes the job of a coach: to reflect with greater perspective than our clients can see for themselves, acting as the forest for the trees. A forest is also a place through which one chooses their own path, coming upon obstacles (rocks, rivers, trees, animals) and forging a way through.

The Arden Approach:

As coaches, we’re partners with our clients throughout this process, always keeping the destination in mind and assisting them in navigating the path along the way. Trees are both strong and delicate, echoing the elements we combine in our coaching: power and joy, passion and practicality, purpose and actions.

This symbiotic relationship between the group and the individual, the forest and the trees, captures Arden’s core belief behind our practice: to grow the individual so both they and the company benefit.

Engaging with Arden:

At Arden Coaching, we treat each interaction with our clients as an opportunity. We want you to walk away better than you came to us, whether you’re a company, client, vendor, or prospective new client. For you, that may be the transformation of your business or a new tool or way of seeing the world, or maybe it’s just a pleasant phone conversation when you have a question. At the end of the day, we want to make a difference for our clients.
