The best ideas for solving problems come from the folks who have experienced them. I work with leaders and thought partners to articulate the challenges, opportunities, and solutions they see in their own communities. I then help my clients listen to and implement those ideas to create impact.
I’ve worked with a range of organizations and institutions. I apply an outcomes-based approach to organizational development that utilizes visioning, planning, and user-centered design to assess organizational readiness, ensuring that my clients not only utilize processes, systems, and structures that best fit their needs but also have a culture grounded in trust-building; teamwork and collaboration necessary to seize opportunities and make decisions to unlock the organization’s greatest potential.
My approach is people-centered and highly relational. I am also an adept developer and manager of process. I believe that the mix of my ability to tailor engagements to be nimble and responsive to the needs of clients along with my ability to develop and adhere to disciplined processes, is a unique and necessary combination for a successful client engagement.
