Dr. Tina of MCG Consulting Group to be Featured on Close-Up Talk Radio

LIGHTNING RELEASE 04/08/14 – Suwanee, GA – Enduring a life of frustration is common among people in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (or STEM) community. STEM professionals are routinely passed over for leadership positions. And while it’s true that it’s more expedient to keep these individuals in their current roles because they are fixers of problems, the real reason is much simpler.

“As technicians we’re really good pushing through impossible barriers,” says Dr. Martina Carroll-Garrison, “but everybody thinks we’re jerks!”

Dr. Tina is the founder of MCG Consulting Group, an executive leadership coaching practice with a particular focus on the STEM community. Through her unique program Geek Coach 101, Dr. Tina works with individuals in STEM to enhance their leadership capacity while creating balance in their professional and personal lives.

“Self-reflection is the first step toward self-awareness,” says Dr. Tina. “I help the STEM community get out of their head and into their heart.”

An engineer for the Department of the Army and the FBI for 25 years, Dr. Tina’s career had progressed quite well until she hit that familiar brick wall. She made an investment into self-awareness training and the insight gave her a new appreciation for the specific challenges engineers and scientists experience in the work place. Today, Dr. Tina helps her clients identify tangible and executable pathways to joy and forward progress.

“My style is gentle irreverence,” says Dr. Tina. “I will call you on the things you say and do that are not congruent with what you want to accomplish. That’s what coaching is about. It’s investing in someone else to hold you accountable for your performance.”

According to Dr. Tina, many STEM professionals have lost touch with their emotional intelligence, their capacity to feel. The Geek Coach 101 program puts them on the path of becoming aware of themselves in a more multi-dimensional way by exploring the need to feel as well as think of experiences.

“When you become self-aware, you understand what’s blocking your progress,” says Dr. Tina. “With that journey into self, I help them make purposeful behavior changes to achieve the type of life they really want to have and become the leaders they want to become.

“I was a great engineer but it didn’t fill my soul,” says Dr. Tina. “I walked away from something I was very good at to do something I’m passionate about, so I fall in love with all my clients and their willingness to grow and evolve.”

Close-Up Talk Radio will feature Dr. Tina in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on April 10th at 2pm EST.
