Customized Workplace Programs to Launch Your Team Past the Competition
Being part of a team isn’t enough anymore. You need to be on a high performing team that delivers best-in-class services and drives increased business results.
Old school leadership and management techniques aren’t as effective in today’s working environment. We no longer live in a “one-size-fits-all” management culture.
Your matrixed, cross-functional, multi-generational team allows for too many variables to fall through the cracks and too many opportunities to not be aligned with one consistent direction.
You are ready to effectively leverage the unique talents on your team and have your team performing at the next level. You can’t afford not to.
But what you’ve been doing hasn’t been as impactful as it could be. You need an external perspective – someone who can see past the everyday pressures, politics and restraints that need your attention.
You need a partner who can provide insight, information, opportunities, and sustained success – allowing your team to achieve its potential.
I’ve have worked with over 75 teams with one goal in mind – delivering high performance, bridging the necessary gaps to foster high functioning teams and developing effective leaders at all levels.
Here is a sample of the outcomes I have achieved with the teams I have worked with:
- Decreased turnover rate on team by 15%
- Increased employee satisfaction and engagement rates by in 30% in one department within a quarter
- Aligned employee strengths to projects and tasks with increased efficiency
- Retained key talent/high potential employee who was at risk (2 years post-risk)
- Facilitated smooth onboarding for a controversial hire with successful results post-transition and consistent production
AREAS OF SPECIALTY
Knowing how to actively engage, retain and challenge your key talent is critical for the success and succession of your team.
I will work with you to ensure the right people are being engaged, with the right plan and the right developmental opportunities.
While I focus on your key talent, I also conduct talent management reviews pinpointing your vulnerabilities and creating a plan to eliminate those gaps.
Being able to communicate effectively across various levels in your organization is a critical factor to success. Unfortunately, there isn’t a class for that – and if there were, it wouldn’t address the needs of your specific organization.
I will work with you to create a comprehensive communication plan and approach, to ensure you are reaching all of your employees effectively.
You will have all of the tools to communicate effectively to your organization and your team, here on out.
NEW LEADER ONBOARDING & TRANSITION
Bringing on a new leader can be stressful – particularly when it’s a difficult situation. I will work with your team to ensure your new leader is onboarded with a minimal amount of friction – for the team and the leader.
Our approach brings both sides to the same table, gaining buy-in, setting ground rules together and setting expectations. Setting both sides up for continued success.

As a team member, I admire Melissa's thinking and many talents. She's certainly one of the smartest and well-rounded HR professional I know.

Above all, I respect the fact that she cares about doing the right thing for the company and its employees.
