Maia Beatty is internationally known as a Certified Leadership Coach, Master Trainer, Keynote Speaker, and Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner.
Since 1990, thousands of professionals in over 40 states, the UK, Canada and Australia have created remarkable results through Maia’s transformative coaching, learner-focused-and-performance-based training, inspiring presentations and five books. They have united their teams, increased revenue, simplified problem-solving, reduced destructive conflict, increased innovation, overcome their fear of public speaking, and created employee buy-in and trust.
In the course of Maia’s non-traditional development as a leader, she discovered and fine-tuned her genius for identifying obstacles, developing simple strategies to achieve remarkable results, and sharing what she learned so anyone could reproduce her success.
These experiences instilled in Maia three global strategies that she has refined over the years and shared with her clients for the last three decades:
- being able to develop (and draw from) a deep knowledge of communicating with a wide variety of people, from clients to suppliers to colleagues at every layer of an organization
- being comfortable enough in your own skin to be able to think on your feet
- discovering how to make the Simple Shifts that will unlock your innate genius for accomplishing your personal, leadership and organizational goals.
Maia is a lifelong learner who continually seeks to expand the boundaries of what’s possible for herself and for her clients with additional training in cutting edge leadership and communication strategies. In 2001, she earned her certification as a Master Trainer from Langevin Learning Services, the world’s leading Train-the-Trainer organization. After graduating from The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) in 2005 and completing their yearlong Co-Active Leadership Program, she built a thriving coaching practice. After 13 years as a successful coach, she completed additional coach training with The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), where she earned her certification as a Professional Leadership Coach and an Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Master Practitioner in 2018.
Although she spent the first two decades of her career in a variety of non-traditional roles, she is clear that every one of them helped her to hone her leadership skills and communication strategies. The cutting edge approaches that Maia shares with her clients evolved through her experiences in jobs that ranged from retail sales to non-profit organizations, from being a long-distance telephone operator to working as small-boat electrician—one of a few women in the shipyard—to being the only woman member of a solar heating system installation crew.
Maia is a veteran of over 11 years in the US Navy—one of the first women assigned shipboard duty in the mid-70s—where her jobs ranged from sandblasting and painting submarines and managing the procurement of the required materials for each docking and undocking, to shipboard communication systems tech, with fire-fighting and damage control certificates. She spent her last five years in the field of Substance Abuse Recovery, earning the designation of Certified Navy Addictions Counselor in 1984.
As a civilian, she spent three more years as a Substance Abuse Counselor and earned her certification as a Texas Addiction and Drug Abuse Counselor as well as Certified Employee Assistance Professional in 1987. After earning her BA in Psychology, with a minor in Communications from Texas A&M, Corpus Christi, in 1989, she launched her business as a keynote speaker and communication strategist the following spring.

“There are few times in our lives where someone truly ‘gets’ us and knows how to bring us to success. From the minute I heard Maia speak, I knew she was one of those people… I wanted a coach to help me through the clutter that was holding me back.”
