About Us

High Tides is founded by Marie Deveaux, an executive and leadership coach. Marie had a 15 year career in education management, is a licensed investment advisor, a real estate investor and a 3-time business owner. 

High Tides provides leadership training, professional development and personal coaching to magnify the voices of women and ethnic minorities in corporate and entrepreneurial spaces.

High Tides is the  only coaching company that focuses on the nuance of conversation to fundamentally shift how leaders evolve in work spaces to embody company culture. Our strategy leverages an ontological approach to training and development. We believe that the transformation of the leaders is what transforms the culture and fabric of any work space. 

We are  committed to co-creating results that specifically meet the needs and context of current work and life conversations for each person. We do this leveraging tools and ideas  from emotional intelligence frameworks, effective communication skills, inclusive leadership, and positive psychology.

Wow, you were such a PHENOMENAL facilitator. I really got a lot out of that workshop. I was learning and cackling the whole time! You are the definition of faBOOSH. Hope to cross paths again in the future.
