We invite you to explore the following Top 10 Reasons why leaders just like you choose Synergy Consultants:

  1. Synergy is Leadership.

    Our exclusive Executive Mastermind Leadership Forum brings leaders from a variety of industries and fields together to share practical tips and inspire and uplift one another in a way that only those who understand the challenges executives face can do.

    "I thoroughly enjoyed the Mastermind experience. It provided me with an opportunity to learn from others, reassess some of my priorities and leadership practices, and step out of my daily routine to think about critical leadership issues in a different way. Mary Ann does a wonderful job facilitating the group, drawing people out and creating a great learning environment."

    — John Hoey, CEO, Y of Central Maryalnd

  2. Synergy is Focus.

    All too often, one of the biggest roadblocks to success can be the inability to clearly define priorities.

    "Participating in Mary Annís Executive Mastermind for the past two years has been life changing for me. I have been able to get laser focused on my lifeís purpose and gained clarity around whatís really important in life. Our mastermind group session is probably the most productive two hours of the month due in large part to Mary Annís talents as a facilitator, coach and mentor. Joining her program is well worth the investment."

    When it comes to business and the medical community, nothing can be more challenging than keeping a finger on the pulse of ever-changing environments, processes and standards of an industry. Synergy Consultants works with corporate leaders and medical professionals to rethink and recalibrate so they can keep their focus where it should be.

    "I have a group of very high performing executives. With the many challenges facing healthcare today, I needed someone to help us to come together quickly as a team that respects each otherís capabilities, can support one another as needed and, most importantly, understand each otherís strengths and areas for improvement so we can carry each otherís ďload.Ē Mary Ann was recommended to me by the President of my Foundation and by my prior Board Chair. Amazingly, in a two-day retreat, we were able to meet most of my expectations and created simple tools that now guide our interactions. We were successful because Mary Ann did a lot of pre-retreat work, understood my goals and was so prepared for the meetings that everything ran like clockwork. She is exceptional at her trade!”
