From Natalie:

“As a leader and strategic business consultant, my first passion was understanding complex business models, products, and services and being able to identify the common problems that keep organizations from reaching their goals. After many years, I understood that the biggest impact I could have on an organization is helping people become better at what they do, more satisfied with their work, and more effective as team members.

The biggest challenges for employees, managers, and leaders alike, are in periods of rapid growth, decline, or reorganization. My passion is creating and reinforcing stability, strength, and cohesion to help organizations achieve their full potential, in times of major disruption and change.”
