Cindy Allen-Stuckey, Speaker, Coach and Author of The Shift Café: How to STEP into the POWER of your POTENTIAL
Featured in O, the Oprah magazine; Entrepreneur; Fortune and Forbes, Cindy is an international speaker, coach and educator whose mission is to serve people determined to create positive changes in their lives.
As the first-ever female Director of Knauf Insulation of North America, she was responsible for Human Resources and Organization Development.
She is now founding President and CEO of Making Performance Matter® – home of The Shift Café™. The Shift Café – How to STEP into the POWER of your POTENTIAL, leads you on a creative pathway to self-discovery that helps you identify what you want in life, why you want it, and, most importantly, HOW to develop the courage to achieve it. Cindy believes in your POTENTIAL to live your best life – now. To do this, you need to CREATE a shift. This SHIFT begins with you
And talk about shifts! She knows just how powerful these shifts can be as she has successfully maneuvered huge shifts in all areas of my life – both personally and professionally.
In her coaching, Cindy brings a plethora of expertise to her clients. Her first career was as an educator, elementary and post-secondary, so she knows how people learn and how to measure performance. When her son was born, she stayed home to be a mom and found herself divorced when her son was 2-years old. When money ran out, Cindy took an office job.
She then had an extremely successful career in senior management level positions at 3 global manufacturing organizations, where she helped leaders design a path for high performance; she was also the first Female Director in the United States at one of these organizations.
But Cindy knew that her skills were needed by smaller organizations. That’s when she had her next breakthrough, and she left the corporate world to start her own company, Making Performance Matter®, where she worked with organizations to develop them and their people.
