Consulting

 

Leadership, Strategy, Organizational Development and Marketing/Sales/Service Consulting

consulting

In my consulting work with organizations, I take a variety of approaches in helping them accomplish their most pressing objectives, sometimes serving as facilitator of effective process, and other times as helpful expert. I start from the platform of process consulting – partnering with my clients to identify problems, generate creative ideas and find solutions. This process has both short-term and long-term benefit. In addition to addressing current issues, we put in place effective models for problem solving and innovation in the future.  

Consulting topics include:

* Vision, Mission & Fundamentals

* Strategic Planning

* Values and Culture

* Communication and Presentation Skills

* Leadership Skills

* Relationship Management

* Sales and Marketing

* Team Building

* Branding and UVP (Unique Value Proposition)

* Customer Engagement & Loyalty

* Management Skills

* and other customized topics

 

Taking into account your priorities, time frame, critical needs and budget, we can consider which structure will best serve you and your team.

Types of engagements:

Breakthrough Sessions – We spend a half day or a full day together – sleeves rolled up, lots of paper and pens, and creative ideas to help you create a plan to meet your key goals and overcome tough challenges.

Retreats – Spending 1-3 days away from the regular environment can reinvigorate a team and give them a new sense of purpose, greater understanding, closer relationships, and renewed commitment to the enterprise. Expert facilitation of important conversations, concrete goals, along with fun and bonding, are the cornerstones of an effective retreat.

Custom Consulting Projects – Combining assessment, strategy and execution, we partner together to create real impact. Organizations invest thousands of dollars on consulting and training, often achieving very little change in actual performance and results. The reasons? Packaged approaches and no ongoing support. Without a custom approach and necessary follow-up, support and accountability, new programs don’t have much of a chance of success. But we can change that.  Together, we can figure out the best-suited approaches for your organization and then use proven coaching and development programs to ensure success. We can even work with the programs you already have in place, and improve their utilization and efficacy. Custom projects typically last 6-18 months.

Testimonials

Irina has a gift that few have – the ability to truly listen. She has an innate ability to respond to a client’s needs almost imperceptibly. She could tell immediately what kind of mood I was in, where my mind was and what I wanted and needed to focus on.
