Who am I

My name is Maggie Lu.  I am a leadership coach dedicated to helping companies achieve the extraordinary by recognizing and tapping into the wisdom and potential in people.  

Fourteen years ago, I joined a start-up company where the employees self-managed without hierarchy.  In three years, we grew our company from three people with zero revenue, into a $40 million company selling products to over 100 countries. 

After experiencing the challenge, the delight and the impact of self-management, I became fascinated by how the “invisible” elements contribute to business success. Subsequently, I went on a quest to discover the underlying principles of our success and how behavioral psychology, quantum physics, organizational structure, and spirituality influence the results in people and companies.

Fortunately, there is an answer and a simple one.  I am committed to sharing this understanding with a wide business audience.

In the past 25 years, I have managed global businesses, projects, and cross-cultural teams for Fortune 100, and start-up companies on four continents. In my own transition from an engineer to a business executive to a professional leadership coach, life has offered me an integrated understanding of paradoxes – east with west, business with spirituality, logic with intuition, and discipline with humanity.  The result is a holistic view and my unique perspective about business and people.

Why Relevant

You are a business leader who thinks independently. You are curious and you have an open mind. You are conscious of the impact you make and the responsibility you have as an individual, and as an organization, living in an interconnected world. You recognize there is a spiritual dimension in human existence.  

You want to produce excellent business results while taking good care of your people. You want better performance without additional stress. You want more flexibility and a faster response to volatile and competitive markets but with reasonable cost.

The problem is you don’t believe you can have it all.  The good news is that you can!  And with much less effort than you might expect.

                We can’t solve problems with the same thinking we used that created them.

                                                                                                        – Albert Einstein

We live in a Universe much bigger, more complex and more intelligent than what we can perceive with five senses.  And we are governed by principles unfamiliar to our intellectual mind. These principles influence every human action and interaction on this planet all the time, whether we know it or not. 

Master them accelerates our ability to find a solution to every challenge we face in life. What we talk about here is Spiritual Intelligence (SQ), something astronomically more powerful than IQ and EQ combined.  Recognizing this often neglected wisdom can open our eyes to a whole new world and transform the way we approach businesses and life. 

There are two paths in front of us.  One is doing business as usual and eventually becoming obsolete.  The other is transforming the way we think, so we can experience joy, peace, flow and miraculous business results.

Which path will you choose?

What to Expect

To understand Spiritual Intelligence, including its principles and to experience its power directly requires us to become aware of what we didn’t know exist and let go of what we thought we knew but isn’t true.  This process is called raising consciousness. 

Higher consciousness takes us to higher “altitude” and allows us to see the bigger picture.  Lower consciousness focuses on the small and short-term gain at the expense of large and long-term benefits.

You as the leader of your personal life or your company can solve problems created from lower consciousness, yours or others, only by taking your own consciousness to a higher level.  This is why Einstein said: “We can’t solve problems with the same thinking we used that created them.”

The reality is that we have not yet tapped into even a fraction of our human potential.  To achieve more, we need to do less, and to let go what no longer serve us.  And to invite spiritual principles as the guide of our actions.  We need to change what we think and how we think in order to create a different reality.   

I will share with you an understanding of how the human mind works, where human potential comes from, what blocks it, what is required for an organization to produce results.  Once understood, the transformation begins naturally. 

As a coach, educator and sparring partner, I am committed to working with you as long as it takes until you achieve the results you desire.
