Executive Encore: Women Finding Fulfillment After 60!, Patricia A. Muir

Tell us a little something about your business...

Since my very first job, I have carried the vision of making the workplace a great place for everyone, especially women.
In 1992, after a punishing year with a major corporation, I founded my own business. The name “Maestro Quality” expresses my role and the essence of how I have focused on providing a positive experience for my clients, small to medium sized businesses, and their employees.

In a symphony, the maestro’s role is to interpret the music and integrate the extraordinary talent of musicians and instruments to meet and exceed the audience’s expectations. Like interpreting a piece of music, I interpret and integrate business standards and best practices and coordinate my clients’ talent and resources to create a workplace that meets and exceeds the expectations of ALL stakeholders: employers, employees, vendors, customers, and the community.

Speaking the Language of Excellence!

Drawing on personal experience, extensive business experience, and a unique approach blending Quality and Professional Coaching principles with Emotional Intelligence concepts, I choose to work with a select group of women business owners, senior executives, and leaders in their professions.

My THRIVE program launched following my experience with cancer in 2013. My EXECUTIVE ENCORE program has been in the works for over a decade following my experience of being asked why I was not retired.

What I am known for….
I am a standard-bearer and I love interpreting standards.

I combine consulting and coaching principles along with emotional intelligence for developing capacity and capability for individual and organizations.

My clients and colleagues know me for my conceptual thinking style and ability to interpret and integrate different standards for developing and implementing effective sustainable business systems leading to better workplace environments and positive impact on profitability and growth.

When was your lightbulb moment?

After a punishing year with a major corporation, I founded my own business. I made the commitment to invest my skills and professional development in building a business for myself rather than building a business for someone else.

What are your three words of advice?

Do What’s Best (for you). This is the middle line of a quote from my father in his final days.
“Take care of yourself; Do what’s best for you; and, Don’t jeopardize what you have built for yourself”
My mantra and advice consistently aligns with this quote.
