My work with Margo Boster, a professional coach based in Scottsdale, Arizona, with ImpaQ Solutions, has transformed my leadership and management styles, and made me comfortable in leading my organization toward the ambitious goals of redefining higher ed. Most notably, she has worked with me to recognize my own strengths and those of my staff, and how our complementarities can be leveraged to build a strong team and a supportive work environment.Margo’s coaching differs from most university HR programming in that she works almost exclusively with executives and her advice springs from broad experience in the business community. Much of our work together has focused in the “softer” skills of finding my motivations as a leader, and building strong team around the institution’s vision and goals. Margo’s broad experience with industry and federal agencies has provided insights to leadership and management that are not standard fare in university trainings. We have used specialized tools and resources, ranging from live 360 interviews and research-based assessments, to transform my nascent skills as an organizer and research leader into the far more nuanced role of university executive.I credit Margo with much of my recent success here as Vice President of Research.
I really enjoyed being able to work with Margo as my leadership coach. It was great to be able to spend some time learning about my tendencies and habits. I have only ever done this sort of work in groups settings before so being able to focus on myself was a treat. Thank you.
Margo did a stellar job facilitating my CEO peer networking group. In addition to possessing the finesse required to keep a group of hard-charging CEOs on point, she provided extremely useful insights from her personal experiences as a leader. I continue to reach out to Margo as a personal mentor.
I am pleased with the results from my work with Margo. During the coaching process I was able to better define my business goals and work through areas of opportunity. Margo helped open my eyes to what was holding me back and helped me develop strategies to move forward. I highly recommend her for her knowledge and insight in helping business leaders attain their goals.
It was fantastic to work with Margo, who is an exceptional coach. I completed the ImpaQ Solutions Leadership Development series developed and facilitated by Margo. Above all, I was impressed with Margo's ability to deal with even the toughest of clients. Her hands-on approach to leadership coaching and consulting won her the respect of our leadership team. Margo is motivated, forward thinking, intelligent and methodical. She is certainly a pro at what she does!
Time and time again, Margo simplifies seemingly complex business challenges. I highly value and recommend her support.
I engaged ImpaQ Solutions to work with members of our leadership team to provide an independent voice to help develop their capabilities. They (Margo) worked closely with the individuals to assess strengths, to provide insight as to potential gaps and blind spots, and then worked with them over time to close those gaps. Using ImpaQ Solutions greatly accelerated the growth of those individuals, and helped to unleash their latent talents to our benefit. I strongly would recommend Margo and ImpaQ Solutions for any future needs.
I've had the pleasure of working with Margo intermittently, for the last 2+ years. Most recently, Margo successfully led DRT's effort to roll out a competency-based talent acquisition and management program. She exudes energy, has deep and broad knowledge of the subject matter and has a drive to reach the finish line, regardless of the challenges. Her knowledge of Talent Assessment, Lominger Leadership Architect and competency-based Recruiting, Employee Development, and Leadership Development is quite impressive.
Margo is a natural coach, even in non-coaching and consulting roles. She is very skilled at zeroing in on areas of opportunity that have helped me to excel and to improve my personal effectiveness. Margo has a great deal of experience and a helpful toolkit to support personal and professional growth. Margo engages with clients not simply as her job, but something she is truly passionate about. Margo is an outstanding coach and consultant. I'm amazed at the growth I've achieved while working with her and I whole-heartedly recommend her services.
I truly appreciate your help this year - albeit not a lot of time, its impact was immense! Your coaching really helped me to make a much needed change and get some time to re-balance things. Reflecting on it, I really don't know where I'd be without your help (may sound hokey, but true...). Thank you!
I was fortunate to have an opportunity to work with Margo in a voluntary 3-month executive coaching series. Her approach was highly valuable starting day one, as she gained a deep understanding of my corporate role, professional interests, and management style. Over the course of our one-on-one discussions, she guided me through a process for perceiving my role/strengths from a broader perspective, which improved my ability to plan and execute company strategy with impact. Finally, I was greatly motivated by the detailed feedback I received via her 360 Feedback methodology. I would highly recommend Margo to any corporate executive seeking coaching services for his/her leadership team.

Margo was hired as an Executive coach for myself and several of my peers at Washington Consulting, Inc. While I departed the company halfway through the coaching experience, I did get a lot of benefit from that time. Margo adjusted her coaching approach to fit my learning style. She made a point of insuring that we didn't just identify areas for growth, but that I truly understood the benefits of improving in those areas. I know that my colleagues were also pleased with her abilities and the progress that they were making.

Margo has an uncanny ability to analyze complex organizational dynamics and distill the two or three key critical success factors necessary to bring about meaningful and sustained improvements. Not only that, she does it with impeccable interpersonal skills that makes the process fun. I often ask myself, "now why didn't I think of that?," but time and time again, I don't and Margo does.
I had the pleasure of working with Margo and found her to have highly developed leadership skills. She understands the needs and characteristics of each member of her team and deals with each person as an individual and with respect, leading to personal growth. This understanding helps in planning the program and in getting things done while creating trust and building confidence among team members. Margo's adept ability to bring diverse groups together was clearly demonstrated when she took a struggling program with multiple teams and much diversity and turned the program around so the teams were aligned and working as a cohesive unit. Margo has a very strong desire and ability to help organizations and the people within those organizations achieve goals that otherwise would not have been achieved or even attempted.
I highly recommend Margo if you are looking for a professional with strong leadership skills. Margo has demonstrated time and time again her ability to bring diverse groups together and works with individulas who seek coaching in this area. Addtionally, Margo has very acute skills to assist both indivudals and organizations achieve goals they felt were beyond their reach. Her intuition guides her in acurately assessing opportunities and assisting those who are looking for the same.
Margo was brought in to facilitate a Management go-away where we were trying to identify how we could align our deliverables with the Center’s Strategic Priorities. Margo quickly got our management team focused on defining where we were and how we got to this point. With Margo’s ardent leadership knowledge, skills and insight, we then were able to turn our attention to identifying where we needed to be in the next 6 months, 12 months and 3 years. Through Margo’s guidance, we quickly identified various factors that were preventing us from moving forward along with identifying ways to enhance or current processes and/or procedures. Once we had this knowledge Margo worked with us using several techniques on defining and putting together a road map for success.
I really enjoyed getting to work with Margo and found her leadership for the team was exceptional. Not only was she able to balance starting a new support contract for a Government client but was also able to balance strategic subcontractor relationships and staffing challenges. In addition to creating a vibrant and positive environment, under Margo's leadership, the team was able to achieve more than the client even imagined possible.”
Margo has strong leadership and facilitation skills. She has experience bringing diverse groups of people together to achieve a positive outcome.
Margo's unique mix of leadership skills, real life experience, and practical advice are a game changer in bringing diverse groups together. As a consultant to Dorrean, she provided innovative coaching and group facilitation services for senior government executives. Using her proven coaching skills, she helped them achieve organizational goals that they thought were well beyond their reach. I highly recommend Margo and the fresh perspective she brings to help people and organizations be more effective in meeting their strategic objectives.
