TESTIMONIALS

Mercedes Martin: Lead Development Consultant, Ernst and Young; USA

“Clara’s strengths are her ability to coach and build relationships across all levels; and create an open, safe environment for groups and individuals. Through her facilitation everyone feels valued, heard and appreciated. Her leadership and strengths in these critical organizational effectiveness areas help teams increase their efficiency and effectiveness.”

Mercedes Martin: Lead Development Consultant, Ernst and Young; USA

Nick Prior: Partner, Ernst & Young; USA

“Many consultants and advisors have great ideas but struggle to operationalize them in a practical setting. Clara’s approach is focused on understanding the strategic but focusing on the practical. Her excellent facilitation skills combined with a natural understanding of human interaction allowed her to identify impactful and executable steps that enabled a loose association of individuals to become a highly effective team.”

Nick Prior: Partner, Ernst & Young; USA

Josh Ruxin: Country Director, Millenium Village Project; Rwanda, Africa

“It’s not every day that a stunningly multi-talented manager walks through your office in Kigali, Rwanda. The ambitions of my project — a global program of poverty alleviation called the Millennium Villages Project — were not, at the time, matching up with the metrics and structure in place. Assuming that Clara would balk at the responsibilities offered, I gave her a fair and honest list of needs: from basic administrative policies to our first annual strategic plan to human resources management, liaising with clueless suits in New York and budgetary management. During her time with us, she managed to apply that acumen and successfully implement a raft of badly-needed upgrades to our systems.”

Ruth Aguirre: Business Development Manager, Ketron Financial; USA.

 

 

 

“As a result of working with Clara we reached a much needed equity share resolution between two key partners, surfaced and resolved some important internal communication challenges so that our team got on the same page, and implemented a vital client management system ahead of schedule. Clara also helped us clarify and expedite a succession planning decision which saved the company time, resources and money. In addition, we identified business issues, and clarified key components of a comprehensive business plan that included a clear group vision and strategic benchmarks. This resulted in an increase in revenue and provided a foundation for our new successor.”

Ruth Aguirre: Business Development Manager, Ketron Financial; USA.

Caroline T. Cory: HR, California Pacific Medical Center-Research Institute; San Francisco, California, USA

Marco Chavez: Supervisor, California Pacific Medical Center; USA

“Clara’s thoughtful and engaging training was packed with professional & life skills from beginning to end. Within just a few hours we broke down barriers and walls, so that we could tap into our truth and intention – and work better together.”
