Adapting to change
Today’s executives face unparalleled opportunities and challenges in their businesses and organizations. They must be able to navigate and respond to rapid changes in the marketplace and the way business is being done, foster a corporate culture that is both strong and adaptive to ongoing change, and manage their own personal and professional stress and ambitions.
Executive coaching provides experienced and upcoming executives with the time and space needed to process the changes that are happening, identify and plan for ongoing growth and development, and mindfully choose their next steps in service of a greater vision.
"Maggie helped guide me to understanding myself and my leadership potential: my strengths, my shortcomings, my self-sabotage. She suggested readings and led me through exercises that developed technical skills and knowledge about leadership and communication styles. She helped me to realize my value system, set my goals and helped me be accountable to myself and my decisions. I would highly recommend Maggie DiStasi to help guide you through a leadership transformation."
-- Kellie Krake, Director of Professional Development and Advocacy,
Canadian Corporate Counsel Association
My clients benefit from working with someone “who’s been there” in the corporate world – before making a career transition in 2009, I built a successful first career in the financial industry and held the role of Vice President, Technology in the capital markets division of a major Canadian bank. I enjoyed balancing the perspectives (and demands) of both aspects of any successful organization today - business and technology - and mentoring teams in the process.
I've also served on the Executive Committee for a local chapter and region of a large, international non-profit organization for multiple terms. Through my coaching and facilitation work, I've coached and mentored senior executives at all levels of leadership.
How it works

- Emotional Intelligence assessment (EQ-i 2.0™)
- Midway check-in and completion conversation
- 360 interview process if applicable
- Laser coaching / email support as needed
