Strategy development and organizational development with individuals, teams and larger groups committed to learning and expanding how they see the world. I help people to clarify their thinking and their goals/objectives; I equip them (as a teacher or coach as needed) to succeed in their business dreams.
I do this as:
a teacher, a coach or collaborative thinking partner, and/or as an interim manager/executive
I hold a PhD in organizational behavior & an MBA in strategy -- both from top 5 institutions worldwide. I have 7 yrs experience in non-profits, 5 years in corporate strategic change consulting, and 12 years in higher education.
I write/research on positive change -- in consciousness, in "good" business models or about specific leaders, and regarding trends in higher education.
I seek to empower marginalized populations and/or wake up established populations to the needs for a wholistic orientation.
Important things I believe:
- our dominant business paradigm is NOT working
- business (broadly understood) CAN make a difference in creating world benefit (locally and/or globally)
- our current and emergent world is too complex now and increasingly interdependent such that creative, imaginative, ethically minded individuals MUST step up and begin engaging business and their own organizations in new -- yet to be imagined -- ways.
- head and heart both matter, though our current society dominantly values head. (My education and degrees are of head; my engagement with this new network and my consultancy is about integrating heart into our analytical lives). Both matter.
I work across industries.
See attached "MGN_Incubator Concept" for current imagine/mission/vision language, etc.
For my website -- I intend to simultaneously market my self/services; to share resources (papers, a blog, other agencies to try, etc) aligned with my beliefs; and to hold networking space where former students of mine can get help from each other.
Thank you for engaging with my new sole-proprietorship. (My own initials are MGN, so the LLC name flows from that and from my intention).
