“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence – it is to act with yesterday’s logic.” – Peter Drucker
At IMEC, I help transform organizational cultures by coaching and developing leaders and sales teams, enhancing employee engagement, and leading complex change management initiatives through intentional process improvement efforts.
Fusing together my professional experiences, passion for adult learners, and leadership coaching, I guide people and teams through challenging and important organizational endeavors. Doing this and creating a balance of empathy can be challenging, but when teams begin to harmonize, they quickly manifest their desired state. I support learners by creating open, honest, and collaborative dialogues by asking thoughtful questions and offering sound assessments/observations.
Additionally, my experiences in process improvement and Lean has fine-tuned my approach in customer experience and service delivery allowing me to look at each customer touchpoint with a design thinking mindset. This yields a better understanding of customer requirements, recognizing “DOWNTIME”, and overall improvement of customer satisfaction and engagement; thus, leading to sustained customer loyalty, customer growth, and profitability for business owners.
