The Start of Something
Having recently graduated from Sonoma State University with a masters degree in Organization Development, myself and 3 colleagues have decided to set up our own consulting agency. Wish us luck! We're gonna need it! This is how any organization operates. We are at the Forming stage.
I am thrilled to be working with April, Ryan and Karlee, who all possess such a variety of skills and ability that I think the four of us are about as impressive as an OD team can be.
As the Team page on our website states, April’s elegance and articulation help create a holistic view of a system that is both clear and insightful. She has a natural aesthetic for beauty and presentation, and an attention to detail that makes every work space she operates in both special and welcoming.
She has a calming presence within our team as well as a client group, and creates an environment that fosters true discovery, expression, and growth.
Meanwhile, Ryan’s character and work style is very different to April’s, and this is what is so exciting. Ryan is a curious, natural observer and deep thinker, who brings unconventional and inspiring insights and perspectives to any situation. His attention to precision and focus allows him to see the “big picture”, and incisively find the best logical pathways and leverage points for the client, resulting in impactful outcomes.His memory is almost photographic, which makes him an invaluable team member because he reminds us what we have said before and retains huge amounts of research information.
And Karlee is wise well beyond her age! Karlee has a grounded, reassuring, and supportive presence. She invites trust and responsibility with her effortless management of time, people, and resources. She has a commitment to structure in any working session, and models this well with both the client and our team. She has a natural leadership style and maintains good rapport and a tight schedule. In times of trouble, she maintains the momentum of any project, and bonds the team with true grit.
As for me, you will just have to find out for yourself. One thing I don’t like to do is to blow my own trumpet. So, the best thing to do is to hire MAOD Consultants and witness this kick-ass team in action!
