Meet Maria Forbes:

Maria works with small businesses across the Midwest and Eastern regions, validating the unique capabilities of professional teams to leverage organizational performance and generate growth.
Using her branded process, FIREPOWER™ Business Catalyst, Maria unites three essential performance drivers; leaders expressed vision for their business, realization of distinct team member strengths in sync with the vision, and the effective arrangement of talent for sustaining client relationships and increasing market share.

The FIREPOWER™ Team Development serves as a guided exploration of capability and performance, closing the gap between what we know about our work and how we instinctively move through challenge, to fuel team productivity and ignite new energy into a workplace culture.
