Maureen Electa Monte (@maureenemonte) builds winning teams that unite, overcome obstacles, and achieve big goals. She has a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and an M.S. in Leadership and Business Ethics, and is a Gallup-certified StrengthsFinder subject matter expert. She provided leadership development training for executives as an adjunct professor at Cornell and delivers leadership training to the University of Michigan’s Center for Entrepreneurship, and Rochester University’s MS in Sports Leadership.

A former captain and MVP of her high school basketball team, Maureen has 30 years of corporate experience, was Engineer of the Year for IBM, has launched two companies, provided consulting services to 20,000 professionals on global teams, and worked with over 2,000 athletes and coaches, including multiple national and Olympic teams.

Maureen brings a “Moneyball” approach to the inside game of high performance. Every person has an internal motor that fuels their external greatness. Using the StrengthsFinder to measure and harness that motor offers a competitive advantage to leaders and teams.

Maureen published Destination Unstoppable: The Journey of No Teammate Left Behind in 2016. It describes her process of helping a high school hockey team go from struggling to State Champs – in six weeks. Her second book, Win Like a Girl: Coaching Female Athletes to Become Confident at the Game of Life, featuring her playbook for solving the confidence crisis in women’s sports, was published in 2023.
