McCoy Wilson Consulting

I am an executive coach, consultant, and scholar. 

I help my clients to understand that what got them here won't get them there (Goldsmith, 2007).  In order to get from here to there, we have to change. We have to inhabit our future selves. 


Therefore, my model of coaching, whether it's executive coaching or academic coaching, seeks to change the behavior of my clients through transformative learning.  My methods are informed by action inquiry and action research.  Ultimately, I want my clients to become self-directed, self-authoring, and fully actualized.  I use data-driven processes to assess each client and chart their path. 


I also provide writing consulting, leadership development, and organization development consulting for organizations and business professionals.  It's all about helping organizations to improve the way they lead and develop people.

 I live and work in Atlanta but provide consulting and coaching services for clients all over the country.

There are four essentials questions that everyone must answer: 

Who am I? 

Why am I here? 

Who am I here for? 

What am I going to do about it?


These are existential questions that ultimately define purpose. 

I am powered by purpose. My purpose as a leader of change is to leave an impact that changes people and systems for the better. My goal is to inspire, motivate, and support others, so that they too may find their purpose and be powered by it.


I am a Doctor of Education in Learning, Leadership, and Organization Development from the University of Georgia.  I have been working in organizational leadership for 12 years. I specialize in helping my clients to transform their lives and transform their organizations.

"Someone has to be excellent and someone has to care. Most who are excellent don't care, and most who care are not excellent enough to make a difference. Dr. McCoy-Wilson is both. She is a data-driven research scientist who cares enough to provide more than temporary solutions to permanent problems. I've known Dr. McCoy-Wilson for almost ten years...Under her leadership, our strategic team was able to create on-boarding processes for faculty and staff. The new process improved the faculty experience which improved student learning, which improved retention for both groups. Even though Dr. McCoy-Wilson abides in the data, her superpower as an educator is in how she is able to find and illuminate the human story in the data in a way that causes a paradigm shift for those under her leadership."
