I am in awe of human nature; coaching is my laboratory for the nature and science of human connection, change, growth, development, leadership, and thriving.
Carol Kauffman and I began a conversation in 2004 on the importance of creating a scientific foundation of coaching and an institute dedicated to coaching science. This conversation evolved to starting the annual Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare conference with McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School in 2008, followed by founding the Institute of Coaching in 2009 with visionary and benefactor Ruth Ann Harnisch and co-director Susan David.
Margaret Moore, MBA (aka Coach Meg) is an executive coach (mainly healthcare, biotech, and minority police leaders), coach trainer, author, and coaching thought leader.
She is a 17-year veteran of the biotechnology industry in the US, UK, Canada, and France. She served in executive roles at three companies which later joined Sanofi, and served as CEO and COO of two biotech companies. In 2000, Margaret shifted to coaching, founding Wellcoaches Corporation, a standard-bearer for professional coaches in healthcare and well-being. Wellcoaches has trained more than 15,000 health and wellness coaches in 50 countries.
Margaret is co-founder and chair of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, and a course director of the Coaching in Leadership & Healthcare conference organized by the Institute of Coaching, McLean, and Harvard Medical School since 2008. She is a co-founder and member of the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching, a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Board of Medical Examiners, that has launched national standards and certification of health and wellness coaches.
Margaret, a dual Canadian and US citizen, was born on a dairy farm northeast of Toronto where she attended a two-room school and learned to drive a tractor. Margaret lives with her husband, Paul Clark, a prominent biotechnology patent attorney who founded Clark & Elbing, in Wellesley, Massachusetts. She is stepmom to three adult Clarks and grandmom to their five children.
