As president of a non-profit organization preparing our strategic plan for the next three years, I was looking for someone to facilitate a cross-functional group in a brainstorming session. Lesley was recommended to me and we could not have found a better facilitator! From the planning sessions, where she posed thoughtful and direct questions that helped shape the brainstorming session, to her focused and timely management of the one-day session itself, and the post-session recap discussion, Lesley’s facilitation skills and expertise in strategic planning were evident. She kept us on point, made sure the right discussions were being had, and helped us derive and develop actionable strategic initiatives that we will carry forward into our strategic plan. I highly recommend Lesley to any organization looking to develop a strategic plan or conduct group brainstorming of any tough or challenging issues.
