Merrilee believes that the challenges of businesses, governments, and communities ahead will require new and different styles of leadership and thinking. Instead of asking only, “What does this person need to become a better leader?” we must ask, “What about this person makes her/him a better leader?”
Chocolate Villa women’s leadership and career development programs have taken Merrilee and her team all over the world in just a few short years, delivering programs for women in the U.S., Canada, Europe, China, Thailand, and South Africa. Working with women from different cultures and backgrounds, she recognizes that we all share similar challenges, and find strength in joining a broader community of women to share our successes in breaking down barriers and confronting norms that no longer serve our businesses or our economies.
With a dual background in organizational development and behavioral health, Merrilee brings years of experience and perspective to Villa Leadership to help companies open the next chapter to their success. She has worked with large and small companies from a wide range of industries, designing and delivering leadership development programs that have real impact in both the lives of individuals and bottom-line results for business. She believes that when people clarify their personal and professional visions and take charge of their own career and life paths, they are happier, more productive, and successful contributors to the organizations for which they work.
Meagan is, indeed, a modern student of business management. She combines her “I’ll figure it out” drive with formal learning and application to find the most efficient and effective technologies to move our messages and keep our internal wheels turning. She is the quintessential support team rolled into a one-woman package, and has been the mainline backup for Merrilee’s quirky style for a half dozen years through a winding journey of business ventures (the only questionable part of her character).
Her love for homeless animals reflects her truly accepting, non-judgmental and helpful nature, so if you have a question or just want to hear her infectious laughter, give Meagan a call. She can help.
Lady Bird Society
The Ladybird Society is a co-working office, community, and creative workspace totally evolving the way women work, connect, & collaborate in SLC.
