Using her creative energy, warmth and passion for building positive connections with others, Margaret inspires emerging leaders and organizational teams to highlight their personal strengths, design their own unique strategies for success and to move forward with confidence from challenges to places of opportunity.
Margaret has explored opportunities to “connect with creativity” throughout her life. From an early age her music talents, intuitive listening abilities and teamwork skills were honed into a successful career as a piano chamber musician and dynamic performance coach for instrumentalists and soloists of all ages. These gifts have proven to be invaluable in Margaret’s 28 years as a professional librarian, project manager and library leader. As a senior librarian at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind where her library career began Margaret was in charge of developing services providing visually and print-handicapped clients with alternate format material, including a Braille music library of over 15,000 scores! She enthusiastically took on the management of major Toronto Public Library project initiatives such as the TD Bank National Summer Reading Program for children. Margaret next focused her energies as a branch manager for the Markham Public Library system in Ontario where she coached her staff team and provided support, encouragement and motivation in the areas of goal-setting, change management, team-building and the provision of excellent customer service. Management and supervisory staff were also introduced to the skills of using a coaching approach with their direct reports - and with each other!
As a Royal Roads University Graduate and a Certified Executive Coach Margaret continues to “listen for the music” with leaders in the performing arts, the publishing and library worlds and in other non-profit organizations. Through active listening and positive acknowledgement of individual excellence Margaret inspires leaders to move forward to achieve high performance results and to build their own organizational coaching cultures. Margaret is a certified Coaching Out of the Box® trainer and a Reach-Certified Personal Branding Strategist.
