About Dr Margie Oleson

Dr. Oleson recognizes that companies aren’t set up to develop leaders or to help them adopt the right leadership skills and behaviors. Leaders are left to ‘make it up as they go along’ and are mostly learning from past leaders… who were left on their own as well. Margie trains leaders and their leadership teams to build and maintain shared clarity, align to ensure all boats are rowing in the same direction, and develop habits and norms for leading high-performing meetings and being comfortable talking openly about behaviors / needs / status.
