Alessandra Zielinski

Executive Coach, Leadership Development Coach, Career Coach


My coaching experience includes serving social entrepreneurs, small business owners, and professionals over a period of 15 years. I have an MBA and spent several years working as a consultant in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. My own leadership experience includes launching a public-private partnership on education and employment, managing an $11M+ portfolio of 60+ consulting projects with leading nonprofit organizations, and serving as a director of two organizations working with small businesses and nonprofits.

How I can help

My clients experience accelerated progress in reaching their goals, whether that’s increasing their effectiveness at work, getting a raise, moving up at their organization, launching a new side-hustle, or finding a new career. My clients gain an increased sense of clarity on their path forward and report a boost in self-confidence and a new appreciation for their strengths and the value they bring to the workplace.

Who I work with

I work with rising leaders – mid-career professionals in the corporate and social sectors


With an intuitive sense of my desired path, Alessandra guided me in advocating for myself and advancing my career towards my long-term goals. She coached me through transitioning into a new role and building an effective relationship with my boss. Our work helped me to take steps in healing from years of self-doubt and fear of stepping out of my comfort zone. I am grateful to her for bringing joy to this process, and for reflecting back to me my own strength, ambition, and dreams.

- Rosa, nonprofit professional

Working with Alessandra was transformational as I navigated major life transitions including moving to a new city and starting a new job. With Alessandra's support, I gained the confidence to negotiate a 40% pay increase in my new job. Through our work together, I began to break the cycle of overworking myself and to better manage expectations at work. In addition, Alessandra helped empower me as a woman in a male-dominated industry. Her impact allowed me to recognize my potential in new ways.
