Mary RauchensteinPrincipal / Leadership Consultant


“After working for other leaders for the past 40 years, I decided it was time to practice what I’ve always preached. Do something that fuels your passion and brings you great joy. Life is too short to do anything less. I’ve worked for some great brands and had some incredible leaders influence the leader I’ve become.”

A Word from our Clients

“Mary has a gift”

It’s easy to read a leadership book — in fact, it can be too easy when you’re just reading it by yourself. We know the exercises are important, but alone, we want to just gloss over them. A MasterMind makes us accountable, and gives us the benefit of sharing experiences with other people who have the same interests and desire to learn. Mary has a gift, both for keeping the group on point, and for making the experience pleasant and profitable. I am recommending it to three of my friends (something I rarely do).
