My clients receive powerful tools to increase productivity and profit. The end goal for all of my services is to create emotionally sound, collaborative teams and successful individuals.

I help each audience overcome obstacles, improve relationships, increase joy and improve quality of life at work and at home. My work as a life and Executive Coach allows me to work in groups or one-on-one with individuals to become happier and more fulfilled personally and professionally.

    Mea presented "Overworked, Overwhelmed, Overloaded" to a large group of nurses from different units and departments throughout our organization. This presentation was one of the BEST I have EVER attended!! Mea provided practical and realistic tips for managing all the "stuff" going on in our daily lives. Mea promised to teach us how to "get it all done, professionally and personally, get organized, get energized, and become immediately more productive" and she did just that! Many of us in attendance applied Mea's tips the very same day and are still using her tips today. We will definitely invite Mea back to present at our organization in the future!!

    Working with Mea was a real treat! She communicates well, submits materials early, and presents a dynamic program. She provided a program on work - life balance for our 9-1-1 Telecommunicators and leadership. She is energetic, develops incredible material, and leaves every attendee with jewels of wisdom they are able to use to increase the quality of their lives. I highly recommend Mea as a highly motivating speaker and life coach. Outstanding!

    Great Keynote Speaker!!!
    My company recently hired Mea Austin as the Keynote Speaker for our annual user conference. She was great! Mea took the time to understand our business and focused her presentation to the needs of our clients. She is an energetic, entertaining and motivational speaker that kept our clients glued to their seats the entire session.

    Mea is an energetic speaker, captures the audience's attention and keeps it the entire presentation. She engages the audience in participation in ways that people enjoy and benefit from. I would recommend Mea as a speaker.
  • Tish H. Feb 23, 2016
    Mea is an energetic speaker and can engage the audience on the topics that she presents.
  • Stephany H. Feb 22, 2016
    Mea is outstanding! She listens intently on what you are trying to communicate. She follows up with very specific questions that validate that she is listening and she gives you a different outlook on whatever is the topic of discussion. She genuinely wants to help make your life better! The client is more than a dollar sign and that is an awesome feeling!

    I have been seeing Mea for a few months now and even find it hard to put into words how much she has already helped me. All of us have thing's in our life that we want to conquer, fix and overcome that derail us. Mea helps you break down what that 'goal' is (if you don't already know) and give's you the tools to fix it. I have enjoyed the homework plan she assigns to me after each session, the accountability she holds me to and am constantly encouraged and inspired but her motivation to see me succeed. Baby steps truly work when you are try to change a habit or do something differently in your life. Progress, not perfection. Mea is incredible and already helped me so much- you cannot afford to not have her in your life!!

    Mea has thought provoking and meaningful education topics that can make and impact and change behavior!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My prices are based on the event and the number of attendees. Chat with me about your budget and the goals for your event . I offer packages for multiple bookings, speaking and coaching combos and I give discounts for referrals. The first one-on -one coaching session is free. A Culture Index demo is free of charge.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I customize my motivational speaking engagements for each event and audience. My speaking topics are never delivered the same way twice. I spend a good deal of time understanding the profession, the event goals, and the attendees so I can deliver powerful presentations. The best way to share the benefits of the Culture Index is to let you experience it. We survey a cross section of both high and low performing employees in your organization. The results identify exactly why some of your team members are more successful than others and exactly what to look for when you hire. We will help you identify ways to increase performance in your existing team and to utilize current leadership at a higher level of collaboration. The Culture Index is unique in that we also survey the "job." Job surveys allow you to identify the core traits required for success in a position and saves endless hours of time reviewing resumes. I offer a FREE initial life coaching session so you can "try it out." Each coaching arrangement and process is based on the individual’s needs.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Culture Index Licensee, 15 years experience in Motivational Speaking, over 20 years experience as an executive leader, Certified Executive/Life Coach, Time Management Expert, Entrepreneur and owner of multiple small businesses.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I spent over twenty years as an Executive in healthcare hiring, training and motivating employees. A large part of my roll was Motivational Speaking at conferences, with client groups and with our own internal staff. I developed a good deal of my presentation materials based on issues in my own workplace.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have had the honor of speaking at a number of events in a huge variety of professions. Some of my speaking clients include; Alpha Omega Epsilon National Conference, The American Collectors Association National Conference, ASP Enterprises Construction, Boulder Healthcare Solutions, BluSky Restoration, Enterprise Bank, Healthcare Financial Management Association, Institute of Real Estate Management, The Health Financial Management Association, Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Conference, Quest Diagnostics, Saint Luke's Healthcare System, Scale People Annual National meeting, Spencer Fane Law firm, Social Work Leadership in Healthcare National Conference, Truman Medical Center, Vaerus Aviation and The University of Kansas Hospital. My coaching clients are varied and include clients who want to loose weight, create a higher quality of life and executives as well as young people pursuing career changes or better leadership skills.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The Kansas 4-H Leadership forum is an annual event where they bring in one speaker for several keynotes and some workshops. I am honored to have been selected to work with the Kansas Youth Council and Delegates at the 2017 Leadership Forum! I will be delivering three keynote addresses and a workshop on the Culture Index.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find out if your speaker will customize the topic for your profession and event. Have a phone conversation with the speaker to get a feel for the their tone and energy level.
