Covid-19 Impact on Your Business
“Workplace” once had a simple definition: a place, such as a factory or office, where people work. Today, Covid-19 has expanded that definition. Your workplace could also include your spare bedroom, dining table, outdoor patio, or anywhere you have an internet connection.
At RoundTable Consulting we can help you and your team adapt, cope, and flourish in new workplace styles amid constant change and remote work teams. Strong and clear communications can be your most effective weapon for thriving in a rapidly changing work environment.
What’s the best communications approach for your organization? Let us help you define the communication styles that offer the greatest chance of success and provide training and facilitation for you and your team to level up. Learn to stay in tune with your team using true two-way conversations involving careful and empathetic listening; build the kind of trusting relationships that support honest discussions about practical limitations that affect working conditions for team members working from home.
Mission and Goals:
We believe that authentic leaders transform organizations. While they drive for results, authentic leaders demonstrate caring, compassion and empathy for people as they lead. With that in mind, we work with our clients to design and implement customized solutions to develop each person’s potential as an authentic leader.
We believe in the power of relationship to drive customized, holistic solutions. You and the issues you face are unique. RoundTable Consulting invests in forging a deep relationship to learn about your company and its culture then crafts a solution to address your specific needs. No formulaic answers or cookie-cutter solutions, and no partial remedies that treat only symptoms; your organization’s unique balance is restored.
Starting with a conversation, we ask questions that identify pain points and build a deep understanding of your organization. We identify your definition of success, your expectations, and any required deliverables. Each engagement goes through four phases: Assessment, Planning, Execution, and Follow-up.
The name RoundTable Consulting embodies the sense of equality in sharing that is a hallmark of effective facilitation, as well as the concept of constantly striving for personal and organizational improvement within a collegial setting.

Kept us on Track and Focused
“Nancy facilitated a board retreat and strategic planning session for our incoming Board of Directors (medium-sized, South Bend, Indiana based non-profit). Throughout the planning process, Nancy was quick to respond to questions, asked guiding questions, and made encouraging and informed suggestions. Our group responded well to Nancy’s style and approach to facilitation; she let the group set the tone and pace but kept us on track and focused. Our group was able to form a strong initial connection and the resources, plans, and insight that we took away from the work sessions will be extremely helpful for us as we move forward.
I would recommend Nancy and RoundTable Consulting to any group or individual that is looking to engage in a fresh approach to team-building and/or strategic planning.”

Highly Effective Results
“I have worked with Nancy Owsianowski for several years in various capacities – both personally and professionally. Nancy is direct, highly organized and very effective in how she goes about her work. As the executive director of an education foundation who needed guidance during a major growth period, I quickly turned to Nancy.
Growth can be seen as daunting, often resulting in uncertainty. Nancy’s follow through, organizational skills, and strong understanding of our mission helped us effectively implement tools that have allowed us to clearly identify roles and expectations. She was able to sort through a myriad of ideas, proposals, and hesitations. Nancy incorporated everyone’s passion and expertise into attainable action steps.
Nancy has a depth of knowledge and experience across an array of business sectors. Her strengths are in assessing group dynamics, team building, decision making, and consensus building. I highly recommend Nancy as a strategic facilitator. Her leadership and vision lead to highly effective results. My staff and I continue to see positive results from her expertise.”
