The Chief Information Officer at a large food manufacturer had this to say about the session Human Edge Resources designed and facilitated for the Global IT Senior Leadership Team:
“The offsite that Eleanor facilitated gave us perspective on what to expect from each other and how to deal with each other in ways that worked for each individual, as we were going through such a large change. Through conversations, there was discovery and a new understanding of current state and what we needed to do to be successful as a leadership team.”
Our partner at DSI commented on our strategic alliance:
“I found the working relationship highly collaborative — the combination of our focus on talent strategy and capability building for the leadership team leveraged your breadth of experience and certification with best practice models on leadership, change and influence. We also had common values of ensuring a superb customer experience, enriching learning process, well-planned program, and focus on outcomes.”
The Chief Credit Officer, who was one of the process owners, had this to say about the improvement initiative HER consultants designed and facilitated:
“WorkSmart is giving a voice to the employees that use the processes everyday…empowering them with a voice to make improvements that will make things run smoother and more efficiently. Management was a little skeptical, since this was the first time they used WorkSmart to engage employees in making sincere, reasonable suggestions to improve their processes. The result was a process that the employees feel is theirs and produces the results that Management is always striving for.”
