Shani Magosky is the founder of the Better Boss Project, where she facilitates professional coaching and training for employees, as well as designs and manages companywide annual and mid-year strategic planning. She has been assisting the Poston Communications team with these aspects of business since 2013.
She is an extremely well rounded and inspiring leader, having worked in numerous industries, for venerable institutions and unknown start-ups, in a range of economic environments from bubble to recession, and in revenue-producing, advisory, and senior managerial roles.
Beginning her career initially at Chase Manhattan Bank in their esteemed Management Development Program, Shani left to join Goldman, Sachs & Co., where she worked for nearly a decade in New York City and later Chicago advising on, analyzing, executing, and/or marketing deals for a wide range of companies in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. Later, she served as General Manager of a local TV station in Vail, Colorado, COO/CFO of an entirely virtual international marketing & public relations company, and management consultant.
Shani then started her leadership development consulting and executive coaching practice, Vitesse Consulting, working for a range of Fortune 1000 companies, tech startups, entrepreneurs, universities and non-profits across multiple industries.
Her most recent endeavor is the Better Boss Project, which stemmed from years of experience working with bosses at all levels as well as a desire to put a special focus on changing companies by helping people become better leaders – of others and of themselves.
In addition to decades of hard-earned corporate leadership stripes, Shani is also a:
- Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF)
- Certified Co-Active Professional Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI)
- Graduate of CTI’s transformational Co-Active Leadership Program

- Certified Leadership Circle Profile and Leadership Culture practitioner, utilizing individual and collective 360 leadership frameworks that shine a light on where leaders, teams and organizations are now versus where they want to be
Aside from enjoying leisure time rock climbing, practicing yoga, skiing, hiking, riding her Harley, or rooting for the beloved Miami Hurricanes, Shani is actively involved in her community. She is a certified hatha yoga instructor who teaches yoga to under-served youth and is on the board of MonarchCare as well as several other business and non-profit organizations.
