Maya did an outstanding job of working with the group to really flush out their concerns and get them comfortable with presenting those concerns. We had such a successful dialogue that we continued on the next day for an additional two hours. The participants that I’ve spoken to after the session were unanimous in their praise for the session and each commented on how great Maya was.
CEO, software development organization
Due to changes in federal standards, we needed to decrease the length of our year-end close cycle by 30 calendar days. Maya facilitated a series of working meetings for us, bringing together people involved in all aspects of the close process. We looked at innovations, time-saving ideas, and other radical ideas that would help us achieve our goals. Each meeting was well-planned, creative, and engaging. Maya did an excellent job facilitating our diverse group and helping us figure out how to successfully meet this challenge.
Project Director, finance organization
Partnering Resources designed an innovative program that allowed us to mine employee perspectives, opinions, and issues for the benefit of the organization. Maya created a process that made it safe for employees to identify and discuss important and sensitive issues. She then facilitated discussions between employees and our organization's leaders. The conversations were positive and gave me the opportunity to reinforce messages, correct misunderstandings, and understand concerns. The program has been a great success.

Working with Partnering Resources was a true pleasure! From the extensive preparations and the participant interviews to the facilitation and follow-up, this was truly a first class operation. We emerged with an energized management team with a common vision and clear agenda. This will serve as the foundation for our company’s efforts for the next several years.
CEO, technology company
I knew that we would not be successful in taking a bigger leadership role in the Company unless we found a way to get to a highly level of performance, without adding additional people. The work that we did with Partnering Resources enabled us to develop, very quickly, into a much higher performing team. We were more effective, more successful and the team members reported significantly greater pride and satisfaction in their accomplishments.
Marketing VP, software company
When I inherited a new division, Partnering Resources designed and facilitated a strategic offsite session to help leaders in the new division get on board quickly. Through structured dialogue and well-chosen activities, we discussed the vision and strategy for the organization; engaged the leaders; and increased their understanding of our goals. In one day, we boosted the leaders' commitment to the organization.
CIO, financial services company
I really want to express my pleasure with these meetings. I have to admit I was skeptical… coming in, but I have been singing their praises ever since. I think the candor of the group was very open and honest even under a situation that none of us had previously experienced. I have been in many meetings of this sort, and I am amazed at the dynamic that evolved in the short time we were allotted.
Software Developer, financial services organization
After our new CEO came in, I needed my leadership team to understand that we were a different company than before. Partnering Resources designed a process that engaged our leaders in reading industry best practices, clarifying the difference between "then" and "now" cultures, and identifying the changes that they needed to display as leaders. We accomplished more than I had anticipated and my leaders took a large step towards becoming the team I needed them to be.
