Networking, Development and Roundtables
A coach cultivates and enhances the skills and talent you already possess. Not so much a teacher, but more of an outside objective listener and truth-teller, the coach holds up a mirror so that you can see and improve your behavior and interactions and level up your leadership.
Traditional strategic planning is a comprehensive multi-step process that helps a business to formulate their vision and map out the strategies and actions that will take them there. A sound strategic plan typically includes establishing these key elements:
Professional facilitation helps individual executives or groups to identify and solve problems, come to a level of understanding about a certain situation, communicate concerns with each other for the good of the group, share new ideas and work together to build on them …
Focusing on accountability, sharpening leadership skills, and personal growth.
HOW WE DIFFER
Exclusive Focus on Executives
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.”
Amy Stewart-Brown | President | The Junior League of South Bend, Inc.
She Helped Me Focus My Energy
“Having Nancy as a coach was great!? I completely enjoyed having an unbiased third party perspective into my life. She helped me focus my energy and resources to better navigate life.”
Matt G. Kusciusko | Community YMCA
Creates a Professional and Welcoming Environment
“Nancy is a great facilitator who creates a professional and welcoming environment that encourages all participants to engage openly with one another.”
Brian Snell | Art Director | Valley Screen Process – SMRT member
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.”
Mari Linn M. Wise | Executive Director | P-H-M Education Foundation
Changed How I Coach
“Coaching with Nancy changed how I coach, by letting people lead the conversation more and realizing that coaching is a long-term process.”
