Hi my name is Tom Matzelle. I am an Individual and Corporate Performance Coach focused on providing you high-performance tools to create your desired results. I have written a book called, “Goal Setting – Move Forward, Get out of your Own Way.” It's a simple guide, based on a simple philosophy, but I think it can deliver powerful results for you. 

I work with entrepreneurs and teams to unlock their potential, set goals and assist them in becoming the best version of themselves. This includes anyone who feels like they’re just running in circles and always falling a few steps behind the life they want. I do this by identifying the beliefs and blind spots that have held you back. Then together we create processes and habits that will help you optimize your efficiencies and productivity to create the culture you want to establish.

I specialize in: 

  • Career Coaching
  • Life Coaching
  • Leadership
  • Goal Setting
  • Emotional Intelligence (Team and Individual)
  • Career Change
  • Behavioral Assessments
  • Performance and Execution Optimizations

Maybe you’re here because you've felt stuck and tried to get unstuck on your own without success.

What I do is simplify the process. So you only focus on a plan specific to the outcome you desire.

Global Learning Manager


2010 - 2013, Bellevue, WA

At Expedia, I trained our Global Lodging teams to succeed through learning solutions that include leadership, sales, tools and process training. I also developed training courses in Sales and Negotiations, Revenue Management and Effective Communications.

My focus was on the logistical pieces from managing the Global training team, scheduling, maintain the budget while keeping an eye on the ROI that goes into the pre-training, in class, and post-training for our teams. I also facilitated globally, lead train-the-trainer programs, remote and self-paced courses to over 2,000 employees and worked with our executive leadership and HRBP's.

The path to success is to take massive, determined action.
