“In the old days, I was that type A, always-on, get-it-done and extremely driven kinda guy. Those traits allowed me to excel in my career and blinded me to certain essential truths. ‘Blindsided’ is an understatement. Really it was personal devastation. It was only when I slowed down and took an honest, open, and willing look at myself that I became aware of the changes that I needed to make in order for me to survive. Now, I am blessed with ‘wonder full’ relationships with my wife, children, friends, and most importantly myself . . . and a new career that manifests my values and charges my batteries.” -Tony
Tony Pelusi Jr., JD, CPCC, PCC
Tony has a coaching style that’s all his own—the synergistic result of working for years as a prosecutor, and defense attorney and gaining insight into relationships through his personal challenges.
Pelusi is no stranger to struggle. He worked tirelessly as a prosecutor for six years, then opened his own law practice. For the next six years, Tony devoted most of his time and energy to defending client after client in white – collar criminal cases. At the height of his law career, Pelusi led the plaintiffs’ team in the longest, most arduous and acrimonious civil case in the history of the Commonwealth that netted his clients the largest civil judgment in Massachusetts history.
After devoting so many years to his career, he was finally ready to live. Instead, he was immediately blindsided by his own determination and good intentions. Family matters he’d ignored for far too long had damaged his most important personal relationships—perhaps irreparably. It is only when he faced the consequences of his success that Tony stopped and took this as an opportunity to reassess his priorities and rediscover balance . . . and is now living a life more fulfilling than he ever thought it could be because those personal relationships are once again intact, vibrant, and flourishing.
Today, Tony is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) rooted in day-to-day serenity. He’s also well-versed in a range of philosophies and techniques that he brings together in unique ways to help others find their own path.
