Partnering with Leaders for Results

I provide CEO and C-Level executives guidance and management support to build a better business. My clients come to me as a trusted ally to help move beyond the roadblocks that make the difference between having goals and achieving them.

If You’re Motivated, Visionary & Empowered

I will be your “secret weapon” – and I'll get up to speed quickly. If you’re:

  • A Fortune 500 exec

  • An incoming C-level executive wanting to implement a new strategy or make a significant change in direction

  • An incoming expat leader needing to learn how to work within a new culture

  • An incumbent leader wanting to grow the culture to support business growth

I will help you thrive in a business world that may be new to you – or changing – because of outside influences, growth circumstances, or something yet to be defined.


Tackle the Big & Emerging Issues…with Support


C-Level Executives deserve support

Between 25 and 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies use coaches.*

Regardless of your business size; whether you came up through the ranks or were recently recruited; whether it's a new enterprise or established through generations; publicly traded or private, coaching is a mainstay of solid growth.

Age or agelessness

If you’ve been stopped with phrases like, “we’re looking for a more seasoned professional” or, “you're over-qualified”, there may be an age-related issue hovering just beneath the surface. Age discrimination may be part of human nature, but there is no excuse to miss the motion you’re looking for because you are perceived as being too young or too old. It's about time that age no longer matters. Capability to deliver results is what matters.

I help you avoid the age trap in hiring, the narrow-vision that robs you of talent and perspective from age groups not in “vogue” or preferred by your hiring managers.

Women Rising

This is the time when monikers relating to gender inequality are rising to the surface. But how business and society treat women is by no means a new discussion. A particular passion at MJM is the work that prepares women to break through, read the situation, grow business, seal the deal (in other words, simply BEING equal) is what we’re all about. You too? Well, it's about time.

And it’s time, too, for male leaders become more gender intelligent and reap the benefits of understanding how women work and contribute. I’ve been a male CEO so I get it, and can help other male leaders get it, too.

Minorities Ascending

The goal is clear, but we too often have a long way to go. There's just one African American woman on the Fortune 500 list. And in its history, just 64 women have made that list at all. Fewer than 20 percent of Congress are minority when, as a nation, minorities are the fastest growing sector. It’s time to be clear. Be proactive. Rise. Now is the time. Work with me to tackle the challenge of developing an appreciation of cultural differences and the benefits they bring to your business.

What got you here
won’t get you there.
