WE HELP INDIVIDUALS & TEAMS UNLOCK THEIR LEADERSHIP SO THEY CAN LEAD WITH CLARITY, CONVICTION, & CONFIDENCE

UNLOCK YOUR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL
UNLOCK YOUR ORGANIZATION'S LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL

We founded Core Creation Coaching because we have a passion for people.

Are you currently building leadership that will leave a legacy? The basis of all success starts with a leader’s connection to their people. Our process brings together our insights and experience while taking into account your company’s mission, values, goals and strategies. Our customized Core Impact™ approach to leadership development allows everyone to grow in their own personal strengths and in the context of their personal and professional career goals. Furthermore, we make sure to turn the abstract into the tangible, ensuring that results are immediately visible in your business.

At Mars Wrigley Confectionery, we built and launched an internal coaching program targeting high potential sales associates using our Core Impact™ coaching method. We leveraged our experience and passion for understanding their personal strengths and ambitions to ultimately prepare them for leadership positions across the business.

Friends & Founders

Sometimes when two people meet the magic just happens. Our paths crossed in 2011 when we met at work and ended up on the same marketing team. We had an instant connection and built trust in each other that evolved into a deep friendship. We both went on to pursue different roles in sales, but we knew we had developed a partnership that was bigger than our jobs. Seven years later, in 2018, we founded Core Creation Coaching and Consulting with the sole purpose of helping people follow their dreams and achieve their highest potential in life.

We have a mutual passion for supporting people to think big and dream about their possibilities. We thrive in helping people create an awareness about who they are and what strengths they have at their core. One of the many similarities we share is an insatiable curiosity about what life has to offer. Both of us have gone through difficult life experiences that have given us the appreciation for making the most out of every moment we are offered in life, and we find deep fulfillment and purpose in helping others do the same.

She knows it is vital to get this message across to girls early in life, which is why she volunteers as a guest speaker at high schools delivering her “Finding Your Inner Confidence” talk.

On the weekends, Natalie enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters taking walks on the beach, going to the movies, and exploring new restaurants in Los Angeles. The best times are when Pia and her family are able to join in.
