Create Positive Change:
Mindful Leadership Development Program

Create Positive Change is a 6-month, one-on-one coaching program for aspiring mindful leaders who want to create positive change in themselves, their teams and their organizations.   

Drawing on the theories of mindful leadership (Marturano, Gonzalez, Silsbee, Penman) and emotional intelligence (Goleman), this program invites participants to focus on how you are choosing to show up in each moment and to develop the skills to become more intentional about the impact of your presence – on yourself and those around you.

“The ability to be present, to embody leadership presence, is not only critical for us as individuals, but it also has a ripple effect on those around us: our families and friends, the organization we work within, the community we live in, and potentially the world at large.” ~Janice Marturano

“Maggie created an open and collaborative environment that helped me explore my strengths and limitations as a leader. The change that helped me the most to become better with employees, clients and family, was a simple concept: being more aware of how to show up in interactions with people… (focusing on) not just who I wanted to be as a leader but how I wanted to be perceived.”
