Coaching Staff for Success gives managers a simple to use approach for working with staff that changes the workplace culture, overall.

Book: Launching Your Dream Book and Multi-Media Kit (professional)
We are all dreamers and we have each realized some of what we wanted, but for many there is that lingering day dream that sits untouched, waiting patiently to be remembered or ignited. "Launching Your Dream" helps you to grab it and begin the journey of taking it off the shelf, getting it off the ground and into motion. How does your life change – when you launch your dream? Is there a magical moment for dream launching or do we stand in our own way of making the things we want happen?

Workshop Participant, Department Director, Community College | AEE Regional Conference, April 2007
“Your workshop was the most informative one that I attended in regards to application in my own work. I especially liked your info because it addressed issues more at a micro-level. Which I will consider putting into use with my current and future planning here. I administer all of the non-credit programs at a small community college in upstate NY. It is a secretary, me, and about 70 instructors we use throughout the year - about 15 topic areas from customized business training through summer youth enrichment programs. Busy doesn't describe it. It seems our college is always involved in some stage of strategic planning. My department keeps changing.”
Susan Stark, Vice President | Montague Tool
Inspired & Changed "As a small business owner, I used to dread writing annual employee performance appraisals as it always seemed like a negative experience for all involved. I was expected to point out deficiencies in performance and find some way to spin that information in a way that didn't leave the employee feeling like a deflated balloon. After attending a seminar where Donna from Compass Rose Consulting spoke on this very subject, I invited her to speak at our annual managers retreat. Since then we have used her method exclusively and I'm glad to report that the process has come full circle from a truly negative experience to a positive experience for all involved! "
