Warning: Marty Stanley is a cultural architect and a revolutionary. She helps lead revolutionary change for organizations and as a corporate executive, she was part of the leadership teams that re-defined two separate industries.
If that scares you, she’s not for you.
If you want someone who will inspire and guide you to stay ahead of the competition, have more engaged employees and more peace of mind, then Marty is a good fit for you.
She does this through presentations, (corporate and associations), consulting and coaching.
The first revolution was an entrepreneurial organization that grew from 250 to 1700 people and became a nation-wide, billion dollar company during the 11 years she was there. They redefined the small group health insurance market by creating better products and outstanding service. She created a nationally recognized training department and one of the top 25 corporate wellness programs in the country, long before corporate wellness was in vogue. That company is now Humana. Because the company stole market share from traditional insurance companies, she was hired by Blue Cross Blue Shield because they had to reinvent to compete.
The second revolution was a company that transformed how you see movies – AMC Entertainment. While there, AMC opened 50 megaplexes (18+ screens instead of 6, 8 or 10 screens) and hired over 500 managers and 2000 staff members. All human resource functions had to be redesigned to meet the new business model.
Since 2000, Marty has provided programs on leading, communicating and implementing change and culture. While her expertise is in insurance, programs have been for engineering and law firms, rural hospitals and mortgage banking, not-for-profits and associations of all kinds.
As a national speaker, Marty is one of fewer than 800 people in the world who have earned the Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation.
Marty’s latest book From Type A to Type T: How to Be a Transformational Leader in a Bottom-Line World, provides an in-depth guide to making changes, both personally and professionally. While there are many books about personal development and even more books about leadership, this book takes a unique approach by bridging the concepts of personal and organizational leadership.
Her first book, Get Out of B.E.D. (Blame Excuses and Denial): Change Your Outlook, Alter Your Outcomes, provides insight on the mindset needed, and examples of, collaborative leadership and stellar service. In addition, Marty’s articles have appeared in hundreds of national and international business and trade publications.
