Consultant Posy Gering

PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

I help people make the changes they need for the future they want. I use curiosity, collaboration, and inquiry to help my clients uncover compelling solutions that make it possible to achieve their missions more effectively. I believe that everyone wants to create a positive future and do great work; the keys to doing them are often hidden in plain sight.

I approach projects from a whole systems perspective to develop clarity and alignment around mission/vision/goals, embrace conflict, build high performing teams, and develop leadership while deepening trust and respect. These building blocks help groups meet complex challenges and sustain the momentum needed to reach long-term goals. I am known for creating pivotal moments in the lives of teams and leaders.
