Maxine Attong profile

Maxine Attong is passionate about people.  This is embodied in her Personal Vision “to enhance the lives of the people with whom she makes contact”

For the past two decades she has lived her vision by leading small and large workplace teams —in organizations and in her private consultancy.  She has helped organizations come to consensus; assisted leaders overcome the perils of ineffective leadership, supported team building efforts, redesigned processes to suit changing environments, and managed the internal chaos inherent to strategy implementation.

Attong has had an exciting career working extensively in the gas and oil industry – from exploration to downstream – and the insurance sector – both carriers and brokers.  This has allowed her a rare ability to see both sides of these industries and understand the needs of the various stakeholders.

Attong has worked in senior positions with international companies such as Aon and BG (British Gas), and  has held strategic responsibilities as a Director, been a valued member of Executive Teams, and performed decision making roles of Chief Operating Officer, Vice President – Strategy and Lead Finance Professional.

Since 2000 Attong has operated her private consultancy which allowed her to expand her client base to include trade unions, credit unions, NGO’s, retail and service operations including hotels. Over the last five years she has expanded her international presence  to South Africa and Europe.

Attong is a Gestalt Organizational Development practitioner, a Certified Evidence-Based Coach, a Certified Professional Facilitator, and a Certified Professional Accountant.

Her work has been featured in TD Magazine, AMA playbook, Huffington Post and a host of other magazines.

She is the author of Change or Die – The Business Process Improvement Manual and Lead Your Team To Win.  (Lead Your Team to Win has been voted by Business Forum as “one of the three must read books for leaders/ entrepreneurs.”)

Organizations rely on Maxine to solve problems, to work with leaders and teams, to design processes that are fit for purpose and to offer thought provoking keynotes.

When Maxine is not supporting leaders she plays scrabble, writes, travels and spends long evenings with her family and friends.

Maxine is excited to engage with you.

Testimonials

I am an HR Manager. Quite recently I started feeling so hopeless and wanted to quit, until I starting reading your book Lead your Team to Win. .thank you for providing that added insight that university never equipped me with..I am in a much better place now..thank you
HR Manager -  Caribbean Conglomerate
I was torn…and it took my coach Maxine Attong our first session to discover that. From a career standpoint, in my mind there were two directions I wanted to pursue. After explaining these options to Maxine who listened very attentively…she offered a third option, “Why choose…why not do both?” These words made something snap in my mind and my career path have not been clearer. Thanks Maxine, for being a coach that really listens not only to my words but my heart… Joel Millington

Maxine commands the respect of a world-class facilitator. She is clear-thinking, making her an exceptional, modern leader. Her facilitation skills and demeanor are predicated on strong, active listening. She understands the importance of structure and the risk-reward of various methodologies. As a person, Maxine is also disciplined, articulate, and diligent. One would be very challenged to find a more effective, facilitator and facilitative leader than Maxine. Terrence Metz

She is a certified facilitator and understands the processes and dynamics of facilitation and how people respond or react to certain exercises. Maxine is bright, an excellent problem solver and a creative trouble shooter. Connie Kadansky

What Maxine believes

Attong’s Vision is “to enhance the lives of the people with whom I make contact.” Her Vision is bolstered by her personal beliefs that:

  • All humans are creative

These beliefs underpin the organizational development work that she does within organizations and with leaders, as she works to release the creative potential of individuals and groups so the organization can move closer to Vision.

They also guide the way that she interacts with clients, and how she presents to audiences, groups and shows up at coaching sessions
