Human Resources consulting
Deep experience. Fresh perspective.
With over 20 years of HR leadership and broad generalist experience, I have first-hand knowledge of the client experience.
For better or worse, I’ve lived with the long-term outcomes of engagements with consultants, firms, and third-party providers. And that experience informs the way I work with clients today.
The search and consulting fields are full of talented people, many of whom have never worked inside a company in a permanent role.
Does it matter? I think it does.
Before engaging on contract work, I take great care to understand the client's perspective, business needs, expectations, challenges and potential barriers to success. I ask a lot of questions and try to avoid assumptions. I’m upfront about my skills and limitations, and I won’t take on a project if I don’t have the expertise or time. And finally, I focus on building strong, collaborative working relationships with clients for the long term, regardless of project size. I stand behind my work.
