Marceia Cork, The Change Coach!™️ is an author and facilitator whose talks and coaching are at the intersections of grief and change, and navigating interpersonal relationships. She is the author of The Good Grieve and My Good Grieve workbooks for adults and youth.
I’m Marceia Cork, owner of The Good Grieve LLC. I brand myself as The Change Coach! I am a certified change practitioner, a certified grief support specialist, and creator of the proprietary Good Grieve framework. I’ve authored two books demonstrating this framework— The Good Grieve: A guide for exploring what life can look like after loss, trauma and hardship for adults, and My Good Grieve: A youth’s guide to navigating loss, trauma and hardship… the good way!
There are over 40 life events in addition to death that can bring on major change, and feelings of grief and loss. For individuals, families, organizations and schools I am a non-clinical solution when one is preferred or when there is limited access to counselors, social workers and psychologists. For BIPOC I am often the most relatable bridge to much needed mental health services. I am a designated small, minority-owned federal subcontractor in the state of Maryland.
Prior to the COVID pandemic of 2019 and 2020 I’d been providing DEI consulting and change solutions to large corporations and government agencies, colleges and universities. What I found in all of these populations was that employees were grieving significant personal changes and grief alongside the professional impacts. That’s why I began offering in-person and virtual coaching and grief support for groups and individuals. Post-COVID, I was compelled to streamline that business model to support the populations uniquely impacted in an uncertain job market—in addition to BIPOC, these populations include those recently released from prison or with criminal histories, those widowed, divorced, or exiting abusive relationships, retirees, former military and relocated military spouses, along with recent graduations or separations from high school or college.
I also executive produce and host the podcast, Oooh, Those Effin’ C-Words—a show about change and confidence (two words that are so scary they may as well be curse words!) but just as much about navigating the grief that comes with change. As you heal, what do you want to do next?
My podcast debuted as a Top 100 show out of more than 13,000 shows and earned the distinguished MARCOM award. It has helped me grow a beautiful community of #emcees. And now I hope that includes you. If so, welcome, emcee! I look forward to growing this community with you and for you!
