About Cyndi

Cyndi's creative, outgoing husband, Rob, and two active teenage children, Ryan and Phelan, provide both balance and chaos in her life. Writing about the courage to make moves strongly echoes her personal belief system; she has always respected and admired those people who take initiative. She has changed careers in life, balanced two careers simultaneously, and managed a successful home-based business for fourteen years. She's also had many opportunities to reevaluate moves and challenges in her personal life, having bounced back from a fire that destroyed all of her belongings, from being fired, and from stress as a high school overachiever.

Professionally, Cyndi has a master's degree in communication studies from Northwestern University and a bachelor's degree in theatre education from Illinois State University. She is a speaker and seminar leader who helps people become stellar communicators. For the past twenty-two years, she has presented workshops across the United States and Canada. Cyndi holds the National Speakers Association's Certified Speaking Professional designation, the group's highest earned designation. She has owned and operated Maxey Creative Inc. since 1989. Her articles have appeared in many professional journals and magazines, and she is co-author of two books, The Communication Coach (Coloring Outside the Lines, 1998) and Training from the Heart: Developing Your Natural Abilities to Inspire the Learner and Drive Performance on the Job (ASTD Books, 2000). She has held leadership positions in the Chicago Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development, Chicago Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners, and National Speakers Association–Illinois.
