Maret Mawell PhD
Maret's extensive experience and expertise in Project Management theory and practical application was instrumental in creating a successful Project Management Office for Abbott Diagnostics in Dallas and supporting creation of a PMO in Abbott Vascular. His accomplishments include:
Creation of the framework for the Dallas Project Management Office structure and processes
Implementation of a PM career ladder through definition of PM competencies and grade levels
Staffing of the new group through external recruitment and identification & training of high potential internal employees
Collaboration with the ProChain consultants and customization of the methodology for the Dallas PMO
Maret has significant experience in effective communication and organizational dynamics. These skills compliment his excellent PM abilities and increase his effectiveness, particularly with regard to change implementation and continuous improvement.
Maret was a key member of my leadership team, consistently contributing to our success. He was respected by his peers and subordinates and sought out by them for coaching on technical and relationship issues.

Dr. Maxwell gave a presentation which touched on several topics including conflict resolution strategies to WICUDA-USA at its convention in Dallas, TX in September of 2005. The organization was at a critical juncture and what it most needed was a push to focus on one strategy and get the work of the organization done. The motivation that Dr. Maxwell imparted is partly responsible for our "rising to the next level" and more importantly, doing it together.

Maret is a great trainer! He shows a passion for the material he teaches, is knowledgeable about his topic and is always prepared. He listens to participants to understand, without judgement, and answers questions clearly. Participants give him rave reviews on class evaluations.

As a facilitator, Maret has a unique ability to help both small and large groups gain deeper understanding of issues and of their respective views, and then to reach consensus on how to move forward. He quickly establishes a trusting relationship and rapport that serves as the basis for effective facilitation and collaboration.
I've watched him dispel anger and frustration, help individuals step away from minor disagreements and blame, and then focus their attention on what can be done and what they need to be successful. With a diplomatic, yet firm approach, Maret surfaces candid and productive dialog on those destructive, but typically "untouchable" issues.
His listening skills and personality leave participants feeling respected, empowered and motivated to follow through with their newly found insights and commitments.
