Madeline is driven to make a difference and understands the value of one of the most important resources in an organization which is the people. Madeline knows how to motivate and lead all levels of talent from the CEO to entry level individuals. She is fearless and passionate about organizational learning and development. I personally worked with her as she created a women’s leadership network at Provide Commerce. I was so impressed with the program she created from amazing speakers to work sessions that hit the heart of leadership skills that are critical for women to develop in business. Madeline has made a huge impact on people’s lives because she is candid, open, friendly and honest with feedback.
Madeline has been great to work with for training, team building and individual coaching. She was instrumental in getting my team through a year of transition and growth; her process helped us get back on track and work as a team and we are now having our best year ever! Madeline’s approach encourages people to participate and really be engaged in the process. I also benefited from her one-on-one coaching and insights which have helped me to better understand my impact as a leader and get the most out of my team. Madeline’s unique approach has given me tools I use everyday to grow and succeed.
Madeline has been the most influential leader/coach/mentor I have had in my professional career. Madeline has a true gift when it comes to leading and communicating. Madeline has a way of challenging you without setting you up to fail. She supports you without question, provides you with both constructive feedback and praise in a specific timely manner allowing you to continually grow as an individual.
