It takes more than ambition & thick skin to succeed
in today’s global marketplace.

Our entrepreneurial and business backgrounds help us speak your language.

You have climbed the ranks because you are good at what you do. You have your own unique style that is not a cookie-cutter version of all the managers you have had over the years. You value results AND relationships. You want to be able to hold steady even in the most sticky situations.

But as a matter of fact — the higher you go, what you do becomes less important, and how you lead becomes more important. Being clear about what you stand for, your leadership values is critical.

So where do you start?

This is where my team and I come in.

So where do you start?


This is where my team and I come in.

In my experience working as a coach and trainer since 2005, I noticed that an essential ingredient was missing — fostering courage. That’s why we help our clients discover how courage can take their leadership to the next level.

Coaching Without Borders exists to encourage courage.

there are a lot of coaches out there

What makes us different?

We live our values; expect transparency, emotional courage, and continuous learning. 

Coaching Without Borders has a network of around two dozen fellow coaches around the world. We work with leaders and teams in global organizations in Europe, the US, and Asia. Truly without borders, we’ve worked with over 2000 managers from over 60 nations. We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and offering virtual solutions for our modern world. We even offer a satisfaction guarantee! Get our coaches’ bio book.

We know that courageous leaders have better behavior and make better decisions. We live in a world full of volatility, complexity, uncertainty and ambiguity. We need courage now more than ever.

Our clients are talented global leaders who want to improve their soft skills. Managers often find themselves in charge of people in whom they are meant to foster the same talents, often without being given any training on how to do so. That’s why we value continuous learning and self-discovery, so you benefit from your coaching experience long after you’re done.

There’s a delicate balance between work-life and home-life, especially when many of you work from home. We help you get clear on your personal values and leadership values, to make decisions, and take responsibility for your own balance and fulfilment.

We have a passion for working with female leaders and to make the world of leadership more diverse. We work with both men and women to understand and tap into feminine leadership attributes while appreciating the best of masculine leadership. To cater directly to our female leaders and the challenges they face, we offer workshops and webinars just for them. Our open-enrollment leadership program designed for women (and open to men), Whole Leadership, trains leaders to expand their range of approaches to leadership.

Our vision is to improve the lives of one million people
by helping their bosses become emotionally courageous, compassionate, and balanced.

Margo’s Story

Margo McClimans

I’ve worked with over a thousand clients in 15 years. As a certified executive coach and leadership development trainer, it’s my greatest joy to see my clients build the courage to fully live their authentic self.

A true citizen of the world, I have lived in six countries on three continents. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in international relations, I got my MBA in international business. After working in the import-export business in the States and Italy, I was “discovered” as a coach in 2005 and haven’t looked back.

I’ve made it my mission to share my message of courage and confidence with global leaders and their teams. I’ve spoken at women’s leadership conferences, written a book, been selected to run WIN conferences, and guest lectured at European business schools. I started Coaching Without Borders to specialize in international management, communication, women’s leadership, collaboration, self-confidence, change, and whole leadership.

Enough about me. I want to know more about you and how I can help. That’s why we offer free chemistry sessions with all our new clients. This gives you a chance to see if you feel right working with me and my team. We don’t work with everyone. You have to be hungry to learn, able to look in the mirror, and willing to take responsibility for your successes and your failures.

Are you ready?

I’m looking forward to getting to know you.
