Hi! I’m Mak

I help first time managers develop the confidence & skills to become awesome leaders with thriving teams.  

Did you know?

“60% of new managers fail within their first 2 years?”

(Source: Inc.com)

If you’ve been thrown into the role of manager without much warning or training then you know the struggle to find your confidence and the clarity around what is expected of you is a challenge.

There’s so much pressure to succeed because the failure to do so means low team morale, poor performance, a lack of trust and respect and the possibility of losing out on such as important opportunity in your career.

I don’t want you to continue to feel this stress and anxiety. Instead I want you to avoid the silly mistakes most managers make and become an amazing leader because I KNOW it will open the door for further opportunities.

“Makeda provided my team and me with tools that helped us open up creatively and emotionally in working as a team, as well as in our hiring process. Working with Mak has helped us discover and stick to the points and values that truly matter to us. The experience working with her has helped create a better narrative for our team, as well as for our clients. Sometimes there are things that we don’t discuss and tackle with ourselves, and the team, because it is uncomfortable, which is why it was so important to have Makeda facilitating us to get out of our comfort zone, in a surprisingly comfortable way.”

Hey there! I’m Mak and I have a strong belief that leaders like YOU change lives. 

It’s so nice to have you here!  You know once upon a time I too was an overwhelmed first time manager. No seriously, I had sweaty palms for MONTHS! I was tossed into the role of manager suddenly and unexpectedly! I remember it like it was yesterday, I was only SIX MONTHS in as a frontline worker, then next thing you know BAM, president of the company calls me into his office and I walk out with a new title and office.  To say I was confused, overwhelmed and unprepared is an understatement (seriously, imposter syndrome is REAL!).

New Responsibilities – Any Training = HOT MESS (ME!)

Luckily, the company had also recently hired an angel disguised as a VP, who believed in actual leadership, professional development and ME.  Under his guidance I was able to overcome a lot of obstacles and gain the skills and confidence to successfully lead our growing department to achieve some AMAZING results. 

Because of my experience, I am so eager and passionate about helping you build your confidence to become an inspirational leader that people want to follow.

Oh and I believe in you too.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

I really really REALLY enjoyed my time with Mak! She is a wonderful teacher and the classes were interactive and full of graphics (I’m a visual learner lol😜) so I definitely learned. Sometimes it’s a bit nerve-wracking to participate in classes because you’re wondering if you will get your money’s worth or if you will enjoy the content but I must say that I had no regrets! Imagine someone who has never met you in person but they constantly check up on you, they ensure that you’re learning & that you’re grasping the content. You don’t feel like a #, you feel like a person & you’re treated with respect. If you have questions, you can always reach out to her and it doesn’t feel like a bother. 12/10 I recommend!

Makeda is an individual that coached and taught us what we need to progress to our next level. I do aspire to be fluent and diplomatic like her with words one day!
