My Commitments

Susan-structuresMy mission is to help people and groups imagine where they want to go and create a path to get there.

Commitment to learning is at the core of everything I do. Whether or not learning and capacity building is an explicit element of my contract with you, one of my goals always is to help individuals and groups build their own skills and ability to move forward.

Listening to you is always the best place to begin. I will work with you to understand your current situation and environment and figure out our next steps together.

I believe that everyone has something to offer, and I have the ability and desire to meet people where they are and build effective relationships across diverse backgrounds and circumstances. “Eyes on the prize” is an orientation that helps build momentum and mitigate differences.

I am devoted to outcome-based planning, reflection, assessment, and continuous improvement. The two questions always on my mind are, “What are the results you are seeking?” and “What have we learned, and how do we apply what we’ve learned to what’s coming next?”

“Eyes on the prize” is an orientation that helps build momentum and mitigate differences.

“Thanks to your help at our retreat, our board members found it within themselves to articulate their collective vision. As a result of another one of the activities you led the group through that day, a wonderful summary of the Partnership’s Guiding Principles was subsequently created. We also appreciate the guidance you provided to the Health Task Force. They were able to realize the vary basic need for the local health professionals to network and develop a plan to keep each other, as well as the public, informed about the services they offer and how to about accessing those services. Our process and our product would not have been as good without your expertise and input. Thank You!”
