Molly Grisham

Recognized as a courageous and passionate communicator, my programs inspire and set people in motion. I am passionate about building teams, developing leaders, creating custom workshops, and utilizing personality assessments for personal growth. I am extremely dedicated to developing people.

I bring the experience of 20 years in coaching at the collegiate, high school, and club levels, an entrepreneurial spirit of a successful business builder, communication skills of an author and storyteller, and 10+ years as an adjunct professor and curriculum builder to every client engagement. I’ve helped athletes reach and exceed personal goals, teams become more productive, leaders achieve new heights, and companies be more competitive in their markets through highly engaging programs, curriculum, and workshops.

I have developed my facilitation skills by participating in trainings hosted by Training for Change, The Center for Courage and Renewal, and the Experiential Training Institute at OnSite. Additionally, I am a Level 1 Certified Experiential Specialist with the International Society for Experiential Professionals.

Testimonials

"It was a pleasure to work with Molly as a fellow mentor to the startup accelerator participants. Molly helps entrepreneurs grapple with the realities of being a leader while building their personal dreams. The participants were moved by Molly's experiential learning environment and they left with more confidence to be the leaders they are capable of. Molly's events are a great balance of leadership philosophies and practical skill building. I certainly hope Molly will influence any organization that I'm a part of."

JL ZOECKLER, CREATIVITY & INNOVATION INSTRUCTOR, MIAMI UNIVERSITY

“Molly has a way that captivates her audience from the moment she enters a room. My team felt an immediate connection to what she was saying and kept that message and knowledge within our program for the entire season.  We would be in the middle of a practice or half time talk and someone (and a different someone!) would always say "remember what we did/learned/experienced with Molly..."  Molly is a program changer!”

LAURA-ANN LANE, HEAD FIELD HOCKEY COACH, GWYNEDD MERCY UNIVERSITY

“Molly is a leader whose footsteps are ones that I hope to follow. As my coach, Molly instilled a positive team culture through her passionate, dedicated leadership. As my mentor, Molly is a constant source of guidance and support as I move into the teaching and coaching world. Molly is a magnetic force for all females trying to emerge as professionals. She teaches, coaches, and leads with heart and with passion, she lives her life today for others so that they might lead tomorrow.”

RACHEL TWIST TEACHER/COACH SKUTT CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL, OMAHA NE

“I have worked with Molly with both coaches at our coaching clinics and with my team. The passion and knowledge that she brought to both settings is second to none. Specifically, with my team, she grabbed and held their attention, related to them right away, and was able to help them work through what leadership looked and sounded like. Her team building activities illuminated what areas would be important to stay connected as a team as we moved through our season. An investment in bringing Molly to your campus is an investment in your future success!”

STEPHANIE WHEELER, HEAD WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL COACH, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

“Molly is absolutely amazing at working with the many different dynamics of what it takes to develops team chemistry and leadership skills. Her prior coaching experience helps her relate to many different situations, but her ability to help people view problems and situations at a different angle is truly one of a kind. I’d recommend her to any team, business, or group that wants to improve culture or leadership!”

SHANNON GUTHRIE, HEAD SOFTBALL COACH, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS SPRINGFIELD

“The passion and knowledge Molly brings to teams and coaches is fantastic! If I ever have any leadership needs or team environments that need an outsider’s perspective, Molly is who I call. She is insightful, organized, and truly cares about making a positive impact on people. If you are in a rut with your team, or maybe just looking for a different take on a situation you need to connect with Molly. She will provide options, answers and follow up. She has definitely been a positive influence on our program.”

JEN BROOKS, ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, URSULINE ACADEMY, ST. LOUIS MO

“Molly is not a coach who barks orders, she is an artist. The art just happens to be the people in the process. Molly inspires performance and she leads by example. I have been changed by the time I have spent with Molly. I believe that you will feel the same way after an event with her. Molly doesn’t give answers, but helps you ask better questions.” 

TIM MORENZ, DIRECTOR OF COUNSELING, BLACKBURN COLLEGE, CARLINVILLE, IL

“The first time I heard Molly speak, my first thought was how on earth do I get her in front of our athletes and coaches – she’s that inspirational and her message is that powerful.” 

PETER TASKER, ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, JOHN BURROUGHS HIGH SCHOOL, ST. LOUIS MO

Her simple and powerful approach shifts your thinking … transforming each one in the audience into the kind of leader [who] is more effective at motivating and inspiring the people they lead.”
