POUND provided both strategic advice and leadership and ongoing guidance during a time of leadership transition. When Colleen is retained, she is “all in”. Her contributions met and exceeded her mandate.
– CEO & Board Chair
I was impressed with her ability to quickly grasp the nuances of our work and participate as though she had always been on our team. Colleen is incredible adept at reading the room, keeping discussion productive and challenging our thinking with her strategic viewpoint.
– Executive Director
I brought Colleen in when I was the Chief Marketing Officer, on two different projects. In a 6-week timeframe, she worked with my leaders to enable our implementation of offshore marketing services in Accenture’s Manila facilities. She also facilitated the assessment of the business development function and re-alignment of job responsibilities to have greater revenue impact. Both of these assignments were sensitive and had short timeframes.
What I love about her approach is the ability to ramp fast, integrate with the team and apply a practical approach to increasing adoption in a short time. As an executive, I appreciated her counsel and the judgement applied when working with my leaders and teams.
– Chief Marketing Officer
Colleen’s strong business acumen and strategic thinking skills inspired change and delivered concrete results which supported the business’ transformation.
– VP, Human Resources
Colleen provided change support during a major acquisition. She adapted quickly to the team and provided a straightforward, pragmatic approach to coaching us through a challenging initiative. She was not afraid to ask hard questions, stimulate creative thought and drive results.
– EVP & CFO
Colleen played a key role in enabling us to envision, plan and execute on our strategic Risk Management initiative. She quickly understood our challenges and issues, effectively collaborated with all levels of the organization to frame our vision and define an implementation strategy that was right for us. In a short amount of time, we were able to get buy-in, implement our plans and see meaningful changes thanks to her change management expertise and her unique ability to motivate people. The project was a great success and remains a corner stone of our operating system to this day.
– General Manager
From my experience the corporate world tends to underestimate the very disruptive nature of Organizational-Change, and inevitably all l too often these changes represent a one step forward and three steps back effort. Colleen’s expertise has thought me that this does not need to be the case, and that change can be effectively managed if the appropriate work is completed beforehand. I now understand that the true measurement of change success is when Post-Change almost feels like there was no change at all, and this type of change success can be available to any corporation willing to place Colleen’s methods into practice
– General Manager
I found Colleen’s quick grasp of subject matter and her ability to identify key strategic issues impressive. Colleen has a collaborative approach to strategic planning sessions, and communicates very effectively with management and board members. The result is practical and value added advice to the client.
– Board Chair
Colleen brought a wealth of knowledge, experience and efficiency to her work with us. Her straightforward and trustworthy style ensured that everyone involved was able to move beyond past practices, and venture forward with a new strategic plan that positioned our organization well for the future.
