“Excellent listener. Knows when to push back against my innate level of comfort”Dr. A., Department Chair
Excellent listener. Knows when to push back against my innate level of comfort. Being a physician you have insights into physicians that others just don’t and won’t.

“You are one of the most inspirational, genuine people I have ever met.”Lisa Ann Mathews, Director of Business Development
I can’t begin to tell you how much positive feedback I have received regarding your presentations. You are one of the most inspirational, genuine people I have ever met. I am so impressed and appreciative of the time you devoted to preparing for our event.
“I recommend Dr. Cary without reservation.”Dr. Mary O’Connor, Director
When Maggi and I first started working together I wasn’t sure she was right for me. I am a surgeon and Maggi would ask me questions like “How did that make you feel?” I wanted results, not “feelings.” But I came to understand that I could increase my effectiveness if I were more attentive to the emotional aspects of the project and the feelings of the people involved. I recommend Dr. Cary without reservation.

“Engaging and helpful.”"Women in Healthcare Leadership" participant,
I was surprised by how engaging and helpful Maggi’s presentation was – how personal and interactive it felt. That was great!
“Coaching Dyads: Dr. Cary is intuitive yet scientific and reliant on facts. She has a strong grasp of organizational function (and dysfunction).”Michael Stein, Executive Director
Maggi completed a coaching engagement for my organization for two individual leaders. She very quickly analyzed the situation, learned all sides, and developed a plan that would address the most critical issues first while laying the groundwork for resolving the more nuanced issues later. All throughout the engagement, Maggi kept me apprised of her plans, progress, and observations. She is intuitive yet scientific and reliant on facts. She has a strong grasp of organizational function (and dysfunction). I appreciate all of her work to coach the individuals together so that they were able to understand each other’s personalities and work-style nuances while eventually achieving the important goals that they established together.

Answering a Cry for Help with a Touch of Humanity
Dr. Margaret Cary helps a distressed stranger and recalls one of the main reasons she went into medicine. “My papers…my paaaapers.” I was at a Falls Church superstore checkout counter when I heard her cry.

Are Physicians Coachable? (YES!)
What is it about physicians? The stereotype of the brilliant and bold surgeon who reigns over the operating room whose mantra is “A chance to cut is a chance to cure.” The ever-smiling pediatrician wearing a bowtie with small elephant on his stethoscope. And the pipe-smoking psychiatrist, steeped in Freud and saying little. None of […]
