"I was completely blown away by Maureen Metcalf! She is a person anyone can easily admire. To say she is “thought provoking” would be an understatement. Her philosophical discussions piqued everyone’s interest the entire time she was with us. Her take/view on Innovative Leadership is captivating, as well as her style of teaching/discussing the subject(s) at hand. I particularly enjoyed her break down on cultural stages… that REALLY hit home, as you can see almost each (if not all) of these stages here in JFS. I believe everyone in this Cohort really took away quite a bit about Leader Type Awareness & Self-Management, Developmental Perspective & Innovation, Resilience… as well as Managing Alignment of Self & Organization. Maureen’s take on Leadership Behaviors & Developmental Basics seemed to me to be spot on!” "

John A. Weber,
IT Service Management Supervisor Infrastructure & Operations (OIS), Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services – 2015

"I thought Maureen was amazing! She was so good at stirring thought and conversation. The developmental stages really allowed me to better understand my staff at a different level."

Scott Switzer
Office of Workforce Development, Supervisor Training and Technical Assistance, Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services

"Maureen Metcalf is definitely a phenomenal instructor. Her teaching style and ability to relate each individuals experience (professional and personal) to their ability to be or become an accomplished leader is insightful and forward thinking. Her patience and compassion to acquire an understanding of where ones path has taken them to get them to the present is what makes this class a SUCCESS! The tools used to teach the class on how to become more effective in the workplace are so relative to each individuals status. I LOVED IT! Thank You! "

"I think it's been valuable to hear so many different perspectives from peers who are attending, but also the structure and content that provides measures and context around many of the experiences that I have had as a professional. It allows me to make sense of a lot of the things that are happening, but also helps me to understand the typical path of an evolving leader to consider course corrections."

"As an attendee of this program, I recommend it to all IT Leaders as an educational opportunity worth experiencing. The insight of yourself, seeing the reflection in the mirror, the identification of areas of improvement that can bring you to the next vertical level in your career and personal life are invaluable."

George Brown

Testimonial
AVP Architecture & IT Strategy

"Going into the class my expectations were more on the assumption of a “checklist” on how to become a CIO leader, but what I got instead was a new understanding on myself. I really learned that you have to look inward to move where you want to go. There is no blueprint or silver bullet. I also learned that expanding your network and your center of influence is more important than striving for a “title”. Work a becoming the best leader you can be and the “title” will follow."

Testimonial
Technical Manager

"I think I learned the importance of what I think of as “deliberate growth”, meaning that if you want to grow in your role, in your experience, in your skills, you have to do it deliberately…writing and refining a personal vision, taking the time to network with peers at other companies, learning from others and “sharpening the saw” outside of the office. Because of this experience, I really do feel I have gained valuable tools that I will continue to put into practice for years to come. Thank you!"

AVP Architecture & IT Strategy

"The course was invaluable for me and was helpful in several ways, but most importantly it helped me see some of my blind spots. Having been an IT leader for over 20 years it becomes easy to think “I’ve been through it all” and that I know how to handle every situation. Several of the sessions really helped me course correct that thinking. "

Testimonial
AVP Chief Technology Officer

"Understanding who I am, what I like and where I want to go is crucial. Leadership is the complete picture not just at work but what you are impacting in the community. The complete picture needs to be established and communicated. This part of leadership is very easily overlooked but is necessary to let others know who you are and what you are looking to accomplish. Again, “looking to accomplish” is more along the lines of your impact to the community and to humanity more than making this deadline. I think this foundation for me was an excellent journey and one worth looking at again and again. "
