Project Highlights

A regional non-profit abruptly lost their beloved, long-tenured leader. Days before their annual planning meeting, the organization decided to shift the focus of the meeting to navigating organizational change and took on some pressing issues impacting the alignment of the staff. Christin worked closely with the leaders to design and facilitate a full-day meeting that provided time for the staff to process, address root-cause organizational issues, and face a high-stress project with unity and focus.  A key leader commented, “Your ability to help us through a difficult time was most beneficial. Our staff has been working very well together the last two weeks and we are still talking about how needed that day was. You took a difficult situation full of emotion and helped us not only process those emotions but also led us through defining strategies to move us forward. To date, I think this was the best “retreat” our staff has had, and under the circumstances, that is saying something.”

IT leaders were rolling out multiple systems to increase organizational security, impacting the same cluster of stakeholders again and again. Christin equipped this team to take a unified view of project objectives and stakeholder impact. They developed aligned cohesive messaging to increase  stakeholder engagement and  customer satisfaction.

A web-development team in a health care system needed to work better together in the midst of a turbulent organizational environment. Christin provided leadership coaching to key leaders and led the whole team through multiple team-building workshops to better understand their Birkman Personality Assessment. They focused on mitigating stress behaviors, communicating needs to team members, and understanding how their individual personality profiles handled change. This team went on to receive individual and group awards.
