About Margo

Margo Mansfield, M.A.

Margo Mansfield, M.A., internationally known speaker, master trainer, mentor, and organization development consultant.

I am passionate about the transformation of my clients as they discover the secrets of becoming secure under stress.  I firmly believe that people can learn to use stress as an experience of unleashing their greatest potential in ways that they never understood was possible.  And, as a contribution to their health and well-being instead of at a cost.  

When I refer to this passion statement, what I mean is that when working with leaders and their team members who are facing a future of changes, known and unknown, that are wrought with stress, my gift to them is the magic of proprietary knowledge and experience that brings life-long skills.  

My journey began at 18 as a result of a critical car accident.  My face and left leg were severely scarred.  The resulting trauma led me on a journey through numerous surgeries, a mental health crisis, and recklessness leading eventually to physical healing, spiritual growth,  more formal education, contemplation, and life-changing decisions.  

When I was 18, I clearly recall my third visit to a well-respected psychiatrist for support in my healing.  As I was talking, he fell asleep!  I was stunned and traumatized.  I immediately walked out of his office and down the long gloomy but well-lit hallway. I remember, as if it were yesterday, the resolute decision that I made in my soul.  At that point, I knew I would have to figure this out on my own.  I didn’t know it then, but that was the beginning!  The start of my journey to create my own business.

That journey took several years with one pivotal experience after another compiling my book of knowledge and wisdom as I evolved. Each of these encounters with both formal and informal teachings provided answers to my healing questions and techniques I could apply to the business world.  My personal evolution effectively built my business.   I learned that the depth of my trauma was not an uncommon experience for others.  It was just that my journey was individualized to me, just as it is with everyone else. Understanding this stirred my passion to share what I learned with others.  That is the heart and soul of my business.
