Coach of the Month: Belinda MJ. Brown

Name:  Belinda MJ. Brown

Title:  COO, Executive Coach

Business Name:  Total Alignment Partners

Niche/Specialties:  Women Leaders, Expat Coaching

Expat Experience:  I spent the 30 first years of my life in France, my home country prior to choosing to move to the US in 2007, quitting my promising career, leaving at home my longtime boyfriend, a comfortable lifestyle, our cats and my friends.

Languages Spoken:  French, English

Life Experience:  The experience of another way of life, a complex American culture and the overcoming of the barrier language have ignited in me the desire to expand by helping others to finally be who they are wherever they are. Indeed, I had once felt disconnected from who I was to adapt and adjust to my environment.

For 15 years I was a talented leader in global corporations in Europe and in the US which at the time was my vision of success.

In 2011, my still longtime boyfriend was finally able to join me in the US which allowed me to create space in my head to redefine my vision of success at 33 years old and to become an Executive Coach and an Entrepreneur.

I founded Equanimity Executive, LLC in 2011 using my corporate skills and my visionary mindset. My solopreneur initiative has evolved and grown with me and my clients. First supporting male executives expatriates since I had evolved by choice in male dominated industries for 15 years, I realized after 18 months that my clientele was 90% feminine and yet 100% international. Women became a passion and I developed programs and events specifically dedicated to empowering international women to become and grow as leaders. In July 2014, I joined forces with Debbie Forcier-Lynn, Awareness Leadership Expert, to create Total Alignment Partners, LLC.

Our holistic approach enables re-alignment for individuals and organizations looking for greater results and performance with ease.

Today Total Alignment Partners, LLC has expanded and offers executive coaching with 3 areas of focus:

  • Women Success
  • Team & Leadership Success
  • Transition Success to assist our clients to succeed away from their home country or individual to change their career.

Accomplishments:  I was nominated Women to Watch in 2014 by the OBJ and our company was accepted to the Incubation Program of the University of Central Florida.

What I Love About Working in This Niche:  I love the ability to assist my clients to define success on their own terms in order to be who they are wherever they are.

Coaching Style:  I am French, you can therefore guess I am direct and highly productive when guiding my clients through important transitions. Former corporate leader, metrics are still very important to me and keep my clients accountable by measuring and championing their progress. Authenticity as a key quality to work with individuals and corporations ready for the shift they are looking for.

Favorite Coaching Tool:  Behavioral and attitudinal assessments, Pain/Gain model, Forward-Thinking

Why Clients Choose Me As Their Coach:  Cultural awareness, Diverse background, Ability to relate to others while practicing detached involvement.

A Tip for My Niche:  Be aware of your emotions which are the most important “signals”, your behavior and your talents when you land in a new cultural environment.
