Today’s guest Makeala Ferguson is a new friend I met on Mary Cravets Watch Us THRIVE Zoom call, which I do several times a month and where I consistently meet great people like Makeala. These calls are open and free. I suggest you join us.

Makeala has almost 16 years of experience at the secondary (7 years) and post-secondary education (9 years) levels, and has successfully taught personal and professional development courses, advised high school students and adult learners, and managed general education faculty. She is currently The Pacific Institute campus trainer for faculty, staff, and students - which consists of helping people identify how their habits, attitudes, beliefs, and expectations impact performance.

We cover a little bit of Makeala’s background. I ask, “Does everyone need a coach?” Makeala gives us a few examples of the clients she’s worked with. I fully disclose my gift of Attention Deficit Disorder and we discuss that a bit.

I ask Makeala to let us know about a “defining moment” in her life where everything changed. Makeala shares with us how she found the support needed to get through a difficult time. 

Makeala gives me a short lesson on Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology which Makeala is in school to receive a graduate certificate for. We talk about leadership roles. 

Makeala leaves us with her favorite quote from Maya Angelou

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style!”
