Wendy Moomaw

Team and Leadership Coach, Facilitator, Speaker

Being a great leader is like being an elite athlete. It demands fine-­‐tuning to increase performance including training, repetition and learning new techniques. Leaders also plateau like athletes and therefore they have to train  in  advance  for  more  intense  leadership  challenges  and  to  unlearn  old  habits  or  develop  new  skills.  Leadership and executive coaching are similar to customized interval training: learning is intensified and accelerated,  new  skills  are  learned  and  practiced,  and  possibilities  are  discovered  and  envisioned.  Coaching  provides a trusting, non-­‐judgmental environment where leaders can focus, hear their own voice and discover where they, their teams and their organizations need to grow.

Wendy’s leadership style is engaging, genuine, open-­‐minded and fun. Coaching with Wendy provides leaders time and space to rediscover their sweet spot of leadership; where they are relaxed enough to see the big picture,  engaged  enough  to  hear  the  offerings  from  their  teams,  and  where  they  can  move  efficiently  towards achieving their goals. From this place, leaders are energized to continue on their trajectory towards the vision they have for themselves, their teams and their organization. Wendy is also a skilled facilitator who uses  her  coaching  and  collaborative  skills  to  create  a  space  of  trust  for  learning,  exploring,  increasing  self-­‐awareness and enhancing teamwork. Never boring, she is effective at combining humor, instruction, and inspirational learning to deepen understanding of the topic or challenge at hand. She integrates experiential learning  with  professional  development  that  helps  teams  and  groups  engage  in  their  learning  and  create  outcomes that allow her clients to reach beyond expectations.

Wendy  is  a  software  engineer  and  business  leader,  an  embodied  athlete,  an  adventurer,  and  a  community-­‐igniter. She brings this grounded experience and dynamic energy to the groups and teams she works with, helping them reach beyond expectations. Wendy coaches leaders and their teams by integrating tools across the  coaching  and  facilitation  spectrum  including  emotional  intelligence,  team  coaching  and  facilitation  modalities, somatic sensing, and the interplay of energy dynamics. She is known for her unique ability to navigate ambiguity and helps leaders and their teams develop a clear vision for what they want and how they want to do it. Wendy developed and delivered coach development for the Leadership Essentials Program at Loyola  University  of  Maryland.  She  also  spoke  at  Ignite  Howard  County,  where  she  recounted  a  six-­‐year  journey of heartfelt leadership and community work titled, “Transform an Idea into Reality in 5 minutes.”
