Elevating Leaders - The Firm

Every head coacH has made a less than stellar hire!

 I am on a mission to never let that happen again! 

Maren has 15 years of coaching experience at the division 1 level in both the mid-major and power 5 conferences. As an assistant and head coach she has been intimately involved in hiring more than 10 assistant coaches and staff members. Over the past 4 years, her work as a program strategist and professional coach makes her uniquely qualified in running Elevating Leaders - The Firm.

The first of its kind, Elevating Leaders - The Firm, is a boutique search firm supporting head coaches hire for opening on their staffs. Next to recruiting talented players who 'fit' the program, surrounding ones self with complimentary and high performing staff is of upmost importance for every head coach. 

As a head coach, your runway is short and the stress is high. Having staff who balance your weak spots, while holding your vision of the program as their own, is paramount.

From my own experience, I know I overlooked pink and red flags when hiring because the process was laborious and the candidates checked many of my 'must have' boxes. Each time I paid the price.

Elevating Leaders - The Firm, exists to bring a level of professionalism & integrity to the hiring process. With Maren's 'coach approach' she will spend time ensuring you (the hiring HC) are clear on your values, what you need to be successful, and what does not work within the culture of your program. Maren will serve as your subconscious and act on intuition to gain clarity where deeper questions need to be asked - regardless of potential responses.

The best way to see how Maren can help you in your staffing needs is to reach out!

  • Culture & Needs Call (with you the client)

We cut your time in the hiring process in half, allowing you to focus on other aspects of the program. You forward all the inquires to us, and we do the grunt work. This allows you to be fresh and untainted when you take over and interview the opt candidates.
