Leadership Development

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” — William Butler Yeats 

Mary built leadership development programs at two different organizations and served as a health care leader for decades. She understands the joys and pains of being a leader – and knows how to help leaders be the best version of themselves. Two of her most memorable honors were mentoring awards she received after being nominated by people she was leading – and many former employees still seek her out for advice and mentoring. 

Mary believes leadership development is about creating curiosity and interest in a topic – motivating someone to want to know more. By sharing lessons learned from her own leadership journey, Mary hopes that other leaders will want to learn as they continue on their own leadership paths. She invests in other leaders not to impart information – but to encourage them to think.

Here’s what people are saying

“Mary Sand was the best leader I’ve worked for, so it’s no surprise that when she began to build our leadership development program that the curriculum was spot-on. I’ve never seen other leaders more excited to learn and grow. I haven’t worked for her for years, but am still using skills she helped me to build!”

“Mary has a unique ability to inspire thought and discussion. After every session with Mary, I am filled with ideas that I will apply to my own leadership style and take back to my teams.”
