Optimize Your Culture and Achieve Exceptional Results
Deene led an excellent workshop on identifying our corporate values. I felt great at the end of it, and I think everyone else did, too, despite being pulled away from their demanding work. The leadership team has a good sense of productivity with Deene - now - and in our work to come together. Even the most skeptical people are buying in. It's exciting and inspiring. Deene's having a significant effect on our leadership team.
With Deene's help, our Executive Committee learned a lot about our individual leadership preferences, which came as a surprise to many of us who have worked together for over 20 years! We came to understand and appreciate the native talents we bring to our Board service and how to work together even more effectively to achieve our organization's goals. Deene is an excellent facilitator who with grace and humor, skillfully kept our discussions focused. Deene's extensive experience gives her unique insight into the challenges that boards face - an insight that proved very valuable to our Directors as we identified meaningful action steps that will result in positive change for our organization. I highly recommend Deene's services to any non-profit considering a Board or governance review!
