Margie Warrell

Forbes Columnist, Best-Selling Author, Master Coach, and Thought Leader in Human Potential

An intrepid Australian, Margie Warrell is a bestselling author, master certified coach, media personality and dynamic speaker who empowers people globally to live more courageous lives.

The bestselling author of Find Your Courage (McGraw-Hill), Warrell has learned a lot about courage since her childhood growing up as one of seven children on a farm in rural Australia, to becoming an emerging leader in the human potential movement.

Along the way she has travelled to over 60 countries, venturing to places most people only read about – from the Sahara Desert to the remote highlands of Papua New Guinea; from refugee camps of the Palestinian West Bank to the primitive tribes of the Amazon rainforest.

A certified master coach and Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming with a background in Fortune 500 Business and Psychology, Margie Warrell has built an international career on empowering individuals – and the organizations they work for – with the strategies they need to expand their vision, engage in bigger conversations and lead more courageously.   Her client organizations include Best Buy, United Healthcare, British Telecom, ExxonMobil, NASA, Ernst & Young, Accenture, and AOL.  She is also a guest lecturer to MBA students at Georgetown University.

With her down to earth Australian humor and working mother-of-four efficiency, Warrell gets to the heart of what holds people back in their business, careers, relationships, leadership and life.  Warm and direct, Warrell has become a regular media guest  on national television with appearances on The TODAY Show, FOX News, CNBC, and is the  “Resident Coach” on Washington D.C.’s daily talk show Let’s Talk Live, and is a regular contributor to Forbes Magazine.

During the past decade, Margie Warrell has witnessed what she considers a growing trend of “fear becoming the new normal” for many people.  This has only served to fuel her passion in helping people become aware of areas where they are settling for less than they truly want, engage in bigger conversations, and expanding what they see as possible for themselves and the organizations for whom they work.

Stop Playing Safe: How to take smarter risks in an uncertain world

Every day we make countless decisions that impact our performance, productivity and ability to build trust and grow influence. Yet many decisions are guided by fear – fear of failure, rejection, confrontation or change. Based on Margie’s new book Stop Playing Safe (Wiley 2013), this program will help you to rethink risk and the cost of playing safe, find opportunity in adversity, and adapt more successful to the changes and challenges of an increasingly competitive, uncertain and fast changing world.

Leadership Courage: Build leadership influence and impact beyond your comfort zone

Leadership begins on the inside, and starts with making a courageous choice. For those wishing to expand their leadership competence, influence and impact, this program will challenge the beliefs that can undermine effectiveness and stifle leadership potential, outline the crucial conversations leaders need to have more frequently, and guide audience members towards expanding their vision and engaging in their work and world with greater purpose and courage.

Conversations: Build influence and grow trust

The inability or unwillingness to address issues that undermine performance, damage relationships and limit success can be profound. What doesn’t get talked out, gets acted out – and the price you pay for not speaking up far exceeds the discomfort you feel in doing so. This program will provide a proven and practical frame work for engaging in difficult conversations, along with the inspiration to get started. Crucial for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively, grow their influence, and build more rewarding, trust-filled relationships.

The Resilience Advantage: Stay focused on what matters most during uncertain times

How well you handle pressure, bounce back from setbacks, adapt to change and navigate uncertainty has a significant impact on your ability to do your job well and deliver strong results. In order to face the challenges of an increasingly complex, competitive and changing world, you must be equipped with practical strategies for bolstering resilience and staying strong when pressures mount and adversity strikes. In this program you’ll learn to recognize the causes of your stress, expand your capacity for it, and build the resiliency skills necessary to soar above the stressors that pull others down.

Leading Women: Own Your Power, Embrace Your Difference & Never Underestimate Your Worth

Women make great leaders yet despite all the advances of recent decades, there is still a paucity of women in senior leadership roles. In this powerful, practical and inspiring program Margie will share how women (and men) can work to close the gender gap and grow their influence at all levels. She will shine light on the ways women hold themselves back, helping them see themselves as every bit as deserving as men of leadership, and every bit as capable of handling its pressures and challenges. Margie will draw on her own experiences as a working mother of four who has worked with transformative women leaders around the globe, discussing ways women can better manage the conflicting demands of family and career, how they can build their leadership brand, grow their influence regardless of their position, all while embracing the invaluable feminine leadership strengths.

Global Consulting Firm

“Margie Warrell’s keynote address, as part of our 2010 International Women’s Day celebration, provided the perfect blend of motivational insights coupled with practical calls to action. The resounding feedback from our more than 2,000 participants indicated that Margie’s perspective on resiliency, both in and outside of the workplace, resonated strongly with the situations our folks face on a day-to-day basis. Leaving the event, individuals had concrete take-aways to improve their personal resiliency. I hope that we are able to share Margie’s perspective with an even broader audience in the near future as I think her point of view would be valued by all of our employees.”

Engaging, inspiring, and a delight to work with, her message precisely fit the needs of our employees. Margie helped every member in our large audience to find their purpose and improve their effectiveness, both professionally and personally! We are already thinking of future opportunities to bring her back!“

The Women’s Network at AOL

“We were so pleased to have you join us last week to present the keynote kicking off our Women’s Leadership Campaign. You were fabulous! Your message really hit home, and set a good foundation for the rest of our leadership campaign. We were engaged by your dynamic delivery, connected with your personal stories, and were inspired by the questions you challenged us to ask ourselves. You shared a methodology, and great reasons to use it; you tied it all to our values, and made the moving ahead the safe choice, not the scary one. Thank you for working with us to build a path to self-leadership for the women of AOL.“

President and Chief Executive Officer / Food Marketing Institute
