About Alice Waagen

2The single reason most organizations fail to thrive is a lack of strong people skills among those at the top. I consult with businesses and organizations to:

  • Enhance leaders’ impact
  • Create effective managers
  • Build collaborative teams

I work to ensure organizations are healthy from the top down, and ultimately if an organization has happy, energized, engaged employees they find it reflected in the bottom line. For more about leadership and how I work with my clients, looks at the articles, blogs and newsletters that are contained on this website.

My clients are Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies in the Washington, DC area. My specialty does not lie in a particular industry. My expertise is in knowing what behaviors and actions yield success for business leaders, managers and teams. You can see a list of my clients and read what they have to say about my work under the tabs Clients and Testimonials

I passionately believe in what I do and am constantly inspired by my clients and the missions that they serve. My personal mission is to make every engagement produce tangible value for my clients in helping them discover better, faster and more efficient ways to achieve their goals and objectives. I also believe in using my skills and knowledge to give back to my community. I happily serve as a volunteer videoconference docent for the Smithsonian American Art Museum and in that capacity bring the joy of art appreciation to children and adults nationwide.

Dr. Waagen earned a BS in education from the New York State College at Buffalo, and MS and PhD degrees in education from the Pennsylvania State University. Giving back to the community is also important to Alice. She is an active supporter of Habitat for Humanity, Northern VA as well as serves on the Advisory Board for Marymount University, Reston Campus. Alice also is a videoconference instructor for the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
