we exist to bring simplicity to leadership
Maley Group partners with clients to create custom leadership engagements based on individual and organizational needs. We’ll design the combination of coaching, workshops, and retreats that best fits with the outcomes you’re looking to experience. Our approach is warm, fun, practical, and full of curiosity.
We live in a busy, confusing world: connect with us and get clear on what matters, what’s missing, and what’s next. Experience deep listening, understanding, support, and encouragement, and begin moving toward your goals in new, meaningful ways.
Maley Group was founded in 2014 by Bethany Dufour. Maley is the maiden name of Bethany’s matriarchal grandmother: Margaret Jean Ann Maley Weismiller. Her friends called her Jean, her grandchildren called her Grammy, and we call her an inspiration.
Jean was a wife, mother, grandmother, nurse, army cadet, lover of people, and servant leader. She believed that pain and fear were just a back scratch and a full belly away from brilliance. And she beautifully embodied the qualities we hope to model, and inspire in you: connection to people and to values, bravery, community, purpose, pause, play, and love.
Bethany takes Jean’s example, and her own 15 years in learning and development, and strives every day to meet clients where they are for the sake of stewarding them to where they dream to be.
Bethany was adept at seeing the deeper issues that underlined many meetings. She recognized them, and brought them up for discussion when it was appropriate and needed. [During our coaching work together], so much happened and changed.

Our retreat was an awesome experience! These will help me maintain the balance I felt at the retreat.
