  • BIOGRAPHY  -- Coaching Experience                                             Lucille Maddalena, Ed.D.,  SPHR   

Providing Executive and Group Coaching, Dr. Maddalena has supported executive development at Fortune 500 firms throughout North and South America:

  • Executive Coaching and Performance Improvement Coaching
  • Team, Group and Self-Coaching Interventions and Workshops
  • Meeting Facilitation, Conflict Resolution and Decision Making
  • Leadership and Management Engagement Training
  • 360 Feedback, MBTI  and Hogan Assessment Administration

Group coaching improves meeting facilitation and decision making by addressing distracting behaviors and preferred processes that derail the group and limit effective action. By developing trust and improving communication, groups are prepared to identify poor habits, edit ideas and collaboratively form practical action steps.  Client endorsements often site Dr. Maddalena’s three step self-coaching process as essential for a successful transition to a position of leadership.

Dr. Maddalena has taught in the Management and Communication Departmens of several Universities, including Rutgers CMD Advanced Leadership program. She has written several books and numerous articles such as the acclaimed “Seaside Coaching” published globally in six languages and served as writer, editor and publisher for management and coaching professional journals.

Education and Training:

  • Rutgers University: Doctorate in Human Communications and Labor Education
  • Center for Creative Leadership Seminars
  • Vistage CEO Executive Coaching
  • ASTD Coaching and Synchronous Learning Certificates

She describes her twenty years experience studying human behavior: “Retention and development of leaders through effective interpersonal relationships has been a vital part of my work with corporate clients.  Each encounter with a talented business leader is unique.”


This wealth of experience as a group coach is the basis for the Transition to Leadership program created as a series of seminars for two global pharmaceutical firms. Originally titled Transition to Management, these programs have supported the development of over 6,000 corporate executives at more than 30 firms to gain the skill of self-coaching.   Because it addresses the fundamental issues of trust, team behaviors, communication and decision making during transition and change, potential clients may find value in speaking to former participants to learn how this event unites teams and supports effective decision-making practices, the foundation necessary for a team to set and achieve goals.
