Description of Work Done
“Our collaboration with Amanda led to a three-year plan that celebrates district strengths and targets annual goals. One of Amanda's strengths is the facilitation of committee meetings and larger Board and community forums. Each meeting was facilitated in a way that opened up conversations and resulted in the gathering of valuable input. She also crafted surveys that provided essential feedback from the community. Developing a meaningful three-year strategic plan can be an arduous task. I am very appreciative of Amanda's guidance and support throughout our strategic design process.”

Description of Work Done
“Amanda quickly grasped the complex context of our work and the dynamics of our team, and did so with great clarity, insight, and empathy. We worked with Amanda to design and facilitate our team retreat during a time of significant change for our organization. She helped us to synthesize and articulate our goals, then designed and facilitated a process that helped us move toward them. Amanda is a thoughtful and skillful designer and facilitator, and we would welcome the opportunity to work with her again.”
