A note from our founder, John Marshall

Thank you for considering investing in yourself and your people. Years ago, I was right where you’re at, and asking for help was the best decision I ever made.

Humessence was born to help organizations succeed while contributing to the holistic development of their employees—integrating personal and professional development.

We’re an intimate, human-centered organization. So, when you’re ready, schedule a call with me or anyone from our team.

Our Human Essence

We are certified coaches and training professionals ready to provide a client-centered experience. At Humessence, we know that one size fits one, so every engagement is co-created with our clients.

We develop Conscious Leaders and Cohesive Teams

It starts at the “top” and integrates at the “bottom.” To bring the human essence into the modern workplace, we must have a clear vision of what that looks like and the framework to achieve it. When we consciously develop ourselves and our teams, we change how we live and work.
