Nurturing Transitions through Education and Expertise

Meet Dr. Lucille Maddalena – coach, author, speaker and trailblazer in education and organizational dynamics. As the first woman accepted into Rutgers University’s Labor Education program, she delved into the intricacies of human and organizational behavior, earning an interdisciplinary Doctor of Education with a second major in Human Communications.

While a doctoral candidate she created a workshop preparing professionals for managerial roles; pioneering its acceptance enabled her to found her company, Morris Business Group, Inc. This initiative quickly gained traction at US corporations, making her the inaugural woman to lead management seminars at major pharmaceutical and manufacturing entities. Evolving into a global program conducted in multiple languages, this endeavor empowered over 6,000 new leaders.

Transitioning to a role as a Senior Consultant, Dr. Maddalena joined a national consulting company while maintaining her client base as Maddalena Transitions Management.

This unique hobby, alongside evolving client needs, prepared her for the transformative experience of motherhood. Her canine companions transitioned from sports to cherished pets, while giving her a revelation about leadership. The leadership and teamwork lessons learned on the trail inspired Dr. Maddalena and are referenced in her third book: MOVING ON BY! Harnessing my sled dog team’s instinct to win! Challenging the reader to go “ON BY!” obstacles, the book presents “tales from the trail” to introduce leadership Case Studies followed by Insight for the reader to assess the scenarios, and tasks such as identifying where you would run on a dog sled team.

“Moving ON BY!”

By Dr. Lucille Maddalena

In dog sledding, one of the first commands you learn as a musher is “ON BY,” directing your sled dog team to pass another team on the trail.

“Moving ON BY!” is about claiming your trail, learning to pass ‘On By’ uncertainties, fears or barriers you may imagine or encounter. We move through the transition process to get on the trail, strengthening our skill to examine and be aware of the outcome of our choices. We may struggle or get pushed onto a new trail: we accept the risk and move forward. No matter what your age, if you are just starting to seek your trail or if you have been traveling long enough, this is the book for you.
