The world is changing. It’s impossible to ignore. And as this change forges ahead with or without our permission, the most important decision we now face as individuals, leaders and members of communities is how we choose to participate in this change. Today more than ever there is an opportunity for pragmatic idealists to explore, find, and implement solutions to the complex situations faced by our global community; complex situations including cultural change, global conflict, ethical leadership, community management and even our own personal understanding of death and spirituality. The way ahead is challenging. There is hard work to be done, but there is also the opportunity for great transformation.
I invite you to join me. Saying yes to this transformation means committing to a different way, one that focuses on our intellectual, emotional, and social/spiritual capacity, and ultimately one where all of us will be much more likely to live and die fulfilled, satisfied, in peace and complete.
Mary’s five pillars
of global transformation:
Mary is CEO of Impact Solutions International. Since 1995 Mary has been delivering world-class leadership and organizational development programs in public, private and not-for-profit organisations across multiple sectors. Over the past 10 years Impact Solutions specialized in working with business, spiritual and political leaders in countries emerging out of violent conflict. Her time now is spent developing the consciousness of leaders in a variety of high quality programs.
In her award-winning book, The Final Act of Grace, Mary shares her personal account of life, death, love and grief. With courage and candour she delves into discomfort, braving our death-phobic culture to take readers on a journey of how to master a peaceful death.
Mary C Dwyer is a secular, not-only-for-profit, community of practice seeking a new way to rise to the challenges we all face as a global community. The governing values guiding the Mary C Dwyer FB page and direction are love, compassion, grace, care, kindness and wisdom and the development of human consciousness.
100 Women² – Women helping Women.
A community of women from all walks of life. We are joining together as a loose yet supported and co-ordinated network to make a difference to the lives of other women.
Our Vision: 100 women to walk 100 kms to raise $100,000 for causes associated with helping women rise.
Our long-term vision is that this walk is repeated many times hence the 100 Women 2.
The book, The Business Plan for Peace – Building a World Without War, published in 2017 demonstrates how 25 tried and tested strategies for preventing war can be scaled up and extended, in order to prevent armed violence worldwide. The response has been so favourable that we have established an organisation and are implementing the different strategic initiatives laid out in the book.

During Mary’s time with us, I watched CPCS staff grow into a unified, cohesive team that mutually supports one another in all fields of our work, enhancing our organizational capacity. Her leadership training left me confidant that our team will continued to shine on, building upon the foundation of core values and ultimately pushing the organization to higher standards. There is no doubt that we are a more effective and grounded organization for it. I hope one day she will return to Siem Reap to witness all the good work Impact Solutions International has generated here. Until then, we remain committed to growing and strengthening CPCS on the foundations she has helped us build.
