Margie Kensil, M.S.
Margie is a Senior Consultant with The Hayes Group International, having known and worked with Merwyn Hayes for over 20 years. She has spent her 25-year career in the field of performance improvement, working world- wide with people in a variety of industries and professions. She specializes in consulting and facilitating skill development in leadership, sales and sales management at the executive and senior management levels, and coaching across organizations, from executives to front-line employees.
Margie’s passion and life’s work has always centered around helping people change their lives and accomplish their goals by changing their behavior. She focuses on helping leaders and team members get better results, separating the “critical few” behaviors and skills from the “trivial many” to improve the conversations they have at all levels of the organization.
And when the leadership behaviors call for developing and leading a team, as well as diagnosing and improving problem performance, Margie helps leaders learn to engage in conversations that will result in the best chance for successful outcomes.
During her 12 years with Omega Performance, a world-wide performance improvement company specializing in financial institutions, Margie served as Senior Vice President and Director of the International Task Force and as a member of the Executive Team, responsible for the company’s North American consultant and delivery force and for business development support and resourcing on the African continent. These experiences taught her the criticality of helping people know “what good looks like” no matter who or where they are, and supporting them to make these desired changes reality.
Her other corporate positions include Senior Vice President, Organizational Development and Training, with First Charter Bank (now part of Fifth Third Bank), Senior Consultant with the Hayes Group International, and Vice President and Manager in Organizational Development and Training for Crestar Bank (now part of SunTrust Bank) based in Richmond and Norfolk, VA.
Margie holds a BS in Education from Campbell University and an MS in Vocational/Technical Education from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, with continuing studies completed at the University of Michigan’s Executive Management Program. Additionally, Margie is certified in several of the Lominger® employee development tools, is a certified practitioner of MBTI Step II, and is certified to administer the 360-feedback instrument from Personnel Decisions International and Zenger-Folkman.
