I received positive comments that the workshop was well worth the time, and people are better equipped with language and strategies for collaborative work this summer.
During a leadership offsite for our executive team I found myself referring to the conversations our team had with Andy time and time again. Soon after, I began coaching with him. Our work together taught me to seek the clarity required to successfully lead our organization through change. I’ve become adept at navigating difficult interpersonal dynamics while also challenging and supporting my peers – all in service to the CEO’s vision. Through it all, and as a measure of Andy’s success in his relationship with me, I have remained energized, balanced and resilient. I could write a book about working with him.
Andy’s work with our newly-formed division proved invaluable. He ensured that each member of the team was an active participant in our efforts to develop a timely strategic plan and identify immediate key focus areas. We did this while also attending to the maintenance of who we are as a team.
Andy provided the insight, rigor and support that enabled me to make bold changes in my life and career. He has uncanny intuition and an ability to deliver challenging messages while offering a safe harbor and action-focused framework to drive individual growth and development.
While evaluating the fit between my leadership strengths and the demands of my position, Andy helped me assess and find new strategies. His approach emphasized the emotional health of the organization that I lead, and my own. Together we processed challenges and developed tools to use as new challenges arose.
Throughout the year I have continually heard that the facilitated workshops you (and your colleagues) held were instrumental in assisting managers to understand the change process and communicate it to staff—you are an inspired consulting team and your ability to engage the staff and keep them focused on difficult tasks while engaging them to be open made all the difference. Turnover is down and staff morale is up. Direct, measurable accomplishments like that, I believe, are a result of the effective teams we built and project plans we developed with your help.
Andy’s presence, low key humor, and investment in understanding each group’s background and history allowed him to facilitate a dialogue between two organizations with years of challenge working together — and leave with a renewed commitment to and vision of what we might do together. Not too shabby for “a day’s work.
