The Moxy Lab

Founded in 2013 by Shana Cordon, The Moxy Lab, along with its advisors and agents, have now served hundreds of clients across four continents. Working with everyone from small not-for-profits to Global Fortune 500 corporations, The Moxy Lab’s goal is always the same:

We want a world which communicates better. Communication is at the core of the human experience. Poor communication is bad for business, harmful to interpersonal relationships, and disruptive to communities and even to nations. Great communication empowers collaboration, fosters trust, and moves us forward.

Listen Intelligently. Communicate Artfully. Collaborate Expertly.

That’s The Moxy Lab.

Shana Cordon, MFA

Founder, The Moxy Lab

Under Shana’s leadership, executives and teams learn to listen intelligently, communicate artfully, and collaborate expertly. For over 20 years, she has implemented programs in the Global Fortune 500, in educational institutions, and in not-for-profits like Women in Cable Technology and Dress for Success. Her clients include Comcast, Charter, ServiceNow, Angi, and other tech, telecom, and financial companies on five continents.

As the Founder of The Moxy Lab, Shana brings not only her business acumen, but a lifetime in the arts and in mindfulness practices. She holds an MFA in Contemporary Performance with multiple accolades for creative works; she is a certified ECHO Listening Consultant and a graduate of the InnerMBA Program from NYU; and she is an avid researcher and autodidact. 

Her mission is to inspire and support human development and potential through clear communication, mindfulness, and inclusion.
