Great Leaders. Great Business.


"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Margaret at two different companies over the past ten years. I value her judgment as a strategic sounding board and as an important resource to my leadership teams. Margaret has guided our teams through strategic retreats, team building sessions, 360 processes, and change management. In each case, she has provided solid structure and process and important insights. Margaret is a great communicator and listener, and her direct, open demeanor builds trust and allows her to work effectively with teams and with individual executives. I’m a fan!"

Kip Hallman, CEO of Correctional Medical Group Companies

"Our company needed to discover our fundamental values. Margaret Radke, of Think&Learn, helped us uncover those values. She then guided the development of our strategic plan based upon our values. Our entire leadership team has been reinvigorated and realigned towards our goals."

Rob Thomas, MD & President & CEO of EPPA

"Margaret has been a valued advisor, coach, and consultant to me personally, and to our Executive Team, over the past eight years. We initially engaged her to facilitate some Management Team meetings but quickly learned she could play a valuable role in helping us with important leadership challenges. Margaret has worked with us on talent assessment to ensure we are selecting and developing the right senior leaders. She has led team-building sessions that have broken down silos. Her approach to 360 surveys and leadership coaching has given our executives vital insights into their management style. I believe Margaret’s real-world experience as a business executive, her strategic thinking, and ability to “really” listen are what set her apart from other consultants we have worked with in the past. If you have leadership challenges, as we all do, I would highly recommend Margaret Radke."

Steve Curry, CEO of Knutson Construction

"I have dealt with many strategic consultants over my career, and I cannot think of any that are more effective and professional. Margaret will tell you what you need to hear (and sometimes what you do not want to hear — but need to) in a way that is both respectful and on point. The tools she employs are time tested and relevant. If you are not using Margaret — your competitors will! Don’t get left behind."

Gary Blackford, CEO of UHS

"I met Margaret three years ago when I started at UHS as the Chief Human Resource Officer. Margaret was the one who stepped in to run HR while there was vacancy, which at the time I thought was great of her. Little did I know that she had stepped in and done that with a variety of different functions in her life, be it sales or Ops. Stepping in for HR was just another point in her life long learning journey. The reason I mention this is that finding someone to work with your executive team who has seen the various sides of an organization, from the commercial side, to the Ops side, and including the functional side, is very unusual. Being able to speak the language effectively, impactfully and thoughtfully is one thing. She does that as a matter of course. Being able to provide examples, experiences and connection because she has been there, well, that takes the coaching to an entirely different place. There is instant credibility. That is very rarefied air in the organizational development/effectiveness world. On a more personal note, Margaret is great to work with, thoughtful about her approaches and interactions, and will find ways to help your organization meet its ultimate goal. Perhaps just as importantly, she is willing to disagree with you, to have a healthy debate, and allow you to explore other options in a safe way. Maybe you change your mind, maybe not, but I always found a place where the decision was better made when I had Margaret in the room."

Robert Creviston, CHRO of UHS

"I have had the pleasure of working with Margaret over the last year and must say she "simply is the best." Her deep experience in Leadership Development and Human Resources is quite impressive. She has become like a family member at WS packaging. We do not look at Margaret as a consultant but as a key member of our team."
