PEOPLE AND LEADERSHIP
Organizational success is driven by people, but it doesn’t always feel that way. People programs and leadership development should be focused on harnessing the energy and expertise of your people in the most effective way to deliver the best results. Leadforth Consulting helps you think differently about your people, ensuring they are the key to your business.
PEOPLE READINESS AND CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Businesses need to change and people need to be ready for change, but change management is about more than communication tactics and a training plan. At Leadforth Consulting we understand change for the sake of change is not acceptable – change must achieve business results. Leadforth works with you to think strategically about managing change in your organization and how people readiness will achieve your intended results.
TEAMS AND TEAM EFFECTIVENESS
Everyone wants to be part of a winning team, but winning teams don’t happen by accident. Partner with Leadforth Consulting and be intentional about developing a winning team that produces results.

“Amy is a skilled and knowledgeable OE practitioner with a focus on supporting sustainable results through practical coaching and capacity building. Her ability to establish trusting, collaborative relationships with leaders at all levels, and her assessment, planning, design and facilitation skills, have been an asset to our organization. ”
– ENERGY INDUSTRY ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS LEADER –
“We hired Amy to facilitate a day-long management session. It wasn’t team building; it was more fundamental. We wanted to achieve a deeper understanding of who we all were as people, and enhance our capacity as leaders and as a team. The best part about working with Amy was the balance she struck between guiding us on a path and letting us find our own way. She was well prepared, but it was tailored to us – she didn’t use a template or an “off-the-shelf” product. She was sensitive to the ebb and flow of the session and subtly adjusted to suit our needs as the day progressed. And her observations about our team were insightful, honest, and very helpful. I highly recommend her.”
