Typically, I meet with senior leaders to understand the issues. I conduct an organizational assessment that includes conversations with a cross-section of the organization to get a 360 degree view of the issues. Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness, and theoretical concepts are used to enhance learning. I offer a plan of action to the senior leaders and a decision is reached about next steps.

Sometimes a client will contact us 5 months in advance, wondering if it’s too late. Others have come in at the last minute and asked for a team-building exercise. Please contact us and let us know your timetable. We’ll let you know what we can do to help and how quickly.
