Facts never tell one’s entire story…
What the biographical sketch can’t convey is Mimi’s passion for helping people experience BOTH success AND satisfaction in their work, however they define that “work.” She believes that nothing is more important than work fulfillment, particularly at a time when it requires higher levels of investment than ever before and, at a time, when life outside of one’s job is also demanding and deserving of attention.
Further, Mimi believes that organizations can and do play a critical role in the employee experience. Nothing excites her more than helping an organization invest in its workforce in positive and sustainable ways.
Supporting an individual’s or an organization’s goals for workplace empowerment, excellence, and engagement matters most to her.
