Strategy & Operational Excellence
TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL
You've got a great start and the team to make it happen but where do you go next and how do you get there? Together we will lock in your north star and put pen to paper to create a plan that reflects the needs of your customers, employees and the business. A well thought out change management strategy will rally the team, meet stakeholder needs and deliver the results you are looking for. Identification of operational optimization opportunities is always part of the consideration set.
Perspectives & Pathways
BEING YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF
"Be yourself, everyone else is taken." So often we are encouraged to adapt our behaviors to the environment we are in and to emulate role models that may not feel the right fit for us. Together, we will unpack your leadership values and unique gifts and explore techniques for real life application so you can stay true to who you are while also finding a pathway to success at work.
Coaching & Facilitation
CREATING HIGH IMPACT TEAMS
Teamwork makes the dream work. When teams come together without a conscious plan on how they will work together, results are mixed, problems can arise and performance can become variable. Working together, we will create a vision for your high impact team that is committed to delivering on your most important priorities in a stand out culture.
Guidance & Roadmapping
LEVERAGING YOUR STRENGTHS
You know you're good at some things and others show up on your performance review every year as something you need to work on. Using proven tools, you will be able to articulate your core strengths and map them to ideal roles and work environments where you will have the highest degree of job satisfaction and success. Then, put those insights into an action with a roadmap toward the perfect role.
PROUD TO WORK WITH THESE ORGANIZATIONS
People and Performance Focused
I spent 27 years at Starbucks Coffee, the majority in Operations, Human Resources, Training and Business Development.
When I left as a Vice President in 2017, I joined a small start up as the Chief Strategy Officer where my primary mission was to expand the business. In my time there, the company doubled in size, underwent a name and brand change and operational and people practices were put in place to position it for future growth.
Helping small and medium sized business looking to scale is my passion. I love the convergence of strategy and operations because it's about taking big ideas, putting them into action and measuring their results. All with people development and workplace culture at the center of it.
About me: I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband, 16-year old son, 16-year old niece and three dogs.
My personal interests include distance running, exploring Mt Rainier National Park, volunteering for organizations that support homelessness and animal welfare and reading mystery novels.
