Maggie Huffman is a career life coach, speaker and the author of three bestselling books.
Maggie spent 20 (mumble) years in the corporate world. Granted, it was in wine, but it wasn’t all sipping and spitting! She led large projects and cross-functional teams – many of them global. She had a unique career path, which was to fix a lot of broken systems, structures and processes. This gave her access to a wealth of tools and metaphors.
In her coaching practice today, Maggie will use anything at all that helps her clients to take inspired action and fulfill their true and full potential. These things can come from the world of science (neuroscience, quantum physics, nutrition), from the land of corporate (project and change management, executive coaching, process improvement), the world of woo (visualizations, thought work, metaphysics), the world of pop culture or from simply random, fun things (humor, jargon, sticky notes and Tombow markers.)
Maggie lives in a quirky, almost imaginary world that looks suspiciously like Stars Hollow (of Gilmore Girls fame), with a workspace straight from the set of The Good Witch, except that it is in Sonoma, California, where there really isn’t any snow. She thinks in a weird combination of metaphors, song lyrics and Excel.
