At my core, I am a practitioner of leadership. I’m not interested in theory; I’m interested in applied theory that drives real results, with real teams, comprised of real people so that my corporate and sport clients win. Here are some real comments.
“Maureen, you have inspired and influenced me more than you know! Thank you for being so helpful and kind. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you!” – Coach Monica Plut, Eastern Oregon University.
Maureen, you were terrific! Your expert command of the content, your ability to create a safe space to explore made such a difference. The leaders were actually engaged and enjoyed it. More importantly we learned a great deal from the experience. We now have the hard work of applying your excellent insights. – CHRO of Fortune 500 company
I build winning teams by measuring and harnessing the untapped talent in room and aligning it with success. My approach has been honed with over 15 years of experience in large companies, tech startups, and sports teams – on every continent except the polar ones! Team problems (the people part is the hard part!) are universal in nature and if you don’t tackle those, all the formal talent in the room will not provide sustained success.
There are four universal truths about teams. We should be teaching and tackling these team challenges from elementary school to business school!
- All teams struggle to consistently perform well
- There is always untapped talent on every team
- The team often has no common view of success
- The team lacks deep connections with one another
I help teams leverage every ounce of talent to overcome obstacles, deepen connections, and align with clear success metrics – both the WHAT we want to achieve and HOW we behave to get there. The result is a competitive advantage – from the locker room to the board room – found in the human system of performance.
HOW I HELP MY SPORTS CLIENTS SUCCEED
I’ve delivered my programs to over 1,500 athletes and coaches from high school, college, and Olympic teams. I count success not by titles and trophies – though there are many – but by teams that grow and learn and reach their full potential. I have two programs for athletes:
- Destination Unstoppable® which helps male athletes and teams unite, overcome obstacles, and achieve goals. Click here to learn more or to buy the book.
- Win Like a Girl™ which is a confidence development program I launched in 2019 designed to help female athletes improve their ability to overcome fear, anxiety, and obstacles to their success. Click here to learn more.

HOW I HELP MY CORPORATE CLIENTS SUCCEED
Destination Unstoppable® For Corporate Teams is my program that enables leaders to define organizational success and align the holistic strengths of the people behind it. It ignites the team, and always results in the discovery of unexpected greatness. Leaders and employees feel valued and understood for how they solve problems, complete tasks, connect with others, and inspire change. It is a fun and fast-paced experience which builds the foundation for performance and success. It’s entirely focused not on what they do (write code, do brain surgery, or sell banking services) but on how they behave to do it.
In my workshops, we tackle real business challenges. I don’t have a magic wand or simple pill for fixing team problems. But I have years of success in organizations willing to invest the time and effort in building a great team. It’s not easy, but it is worth it.

Clients include La-Z-Boy, Kellogg’s, IBM, Ally, Huntington Bank, USA Lacrosse, Kelly Services, Beaumont, University of Michigan, SalesForce, Harman, and many others. Contact Me and we’ll begin discussion on how to solve the important problems that are undermining your team.
