Who We Are

Our Mission:

We believe healthcare organizations are hubs for learning, growing, and transforming how service is performed worldwide. We focus our energy in three areas, in engaged workforces committed to serving the mission, employees feeling supported in their endeavors, and an enjoyable workplace full of options to lead.

Empower Yourself Coaching knows that two essential components of thriving healthcare organizations are an engaged workforce and an enjoyable workplace. Through an integrated system of coaching and education, we train individuals within organizations leadership, focused on the skills of conflict resolution, responsibility, and teamwork.
These leadership skills increase employee satisfaction, retention, improved company morale and higher productivity.

Molly Hillig Rodriguez, RN, BSN, MPH


Her experience as a registered nurse and public health professional has shown her the striking difference between failing and thriving nursing teams. Molly found that she and her co-workers often ended up placing the blame, productivity, and responsibility on others instead of taking responsibility. After completing an intensive coaching training, Molly was able to recognize the belief and behavioral systems that impede individuals from performing their best and enjoying life.

Molly has developed and hosted 7 international retreats structured around the empowerment of personal relationships. Her professional experience includes relationship coaching, nursing, public health, and Salsa dancing. Molly is bilingual and has traveled to 15 countries. She brings the best of her energy and expertise to her endeavors. When she is not working or on the dance floor, she is hiking with her husband and son.
