Alyssa has worked with a variety of executives and teams from several industries. The work has focused on leadership development, leading to higher performing teams, greater buy-in to change initiatives, and the creation of more efficient business processes.
An organization serving youth required a complete overhaul of the services they offered. Alyssa collaborated with the organization’s leaders to design the new service stream. She then assisted in training the staff to ensure their proficiency in the new skills required for their revised roles. The organization expected 50% turnover of staff due to the drastic changes in job roles. Due to careful planning, training, and roll out, turnover remained at its historical rate, without any spikes. Job satisfaction by staff actually improved by 28%.
A business unit within a high tech company was experiencing a decrease in productivity and higher than usual turnover due to a lack of trust. Alyssa worked with the senior leadership to re-structure the unit, leading to new leadership opportunities for 71% of the team. Trust levels within the team improved by 37% and clearer lines of communication allowed the unit to improve how they service the overall organization.
