Athena Alliance Members – A Closer Look
Since I started the Athena Alliance blogtalk radio show I have had the opportunity to share with our listeners the expertise of our diverse c, facilitators, coaches and consultants. Each member has a profile featured on our website and I thought for upcoming blogs I would share with our readers a more personal look at some of our partners and in no particular order.
In March 2006 a former alliance member was conducting a test pilot of a new program he had designed and invited me to attend. The event was held in this state of the art training facility in Vaughan. I was honoured to participate and arrived my usual fifteen minutes early. I was seated next to a tall attractive lady, who I would soon learn was Tammy Sturge. I recognized the name but not the face. During our first break we started to chat and it was obvious to both of us we needed to talk more about her offerings and my alliance in a separate meeting. We decided we would meet for a coffee at the end of the pilot. I can see now looking back how much we both are “let’s do it now” people.
After we had been talking for a few minutes I realized why her name was so familiar, she was a seminar leader at one of the organizations where I had participated in some personal development programs. I knew then Tammy was a master facilitator. We both left at the end of our meeting, knowing there were good things ahead.
It was less than a week from when Tammy first joined the alliance when I made my first introduction. The customer was delighted and told me that she was one of the strongest facilitators he had ever experienced. This company still calls her or one of her team members to work with them on various projects. When I have a client that has really tough situations to address, I call Tammy first and she always has a relevant solutions. A few of the programs I have had Tammy and her team help clients with include: creating and implementing strategic plans, creating powerful leadership teams, pay equity, off-site planning sessions, organizational development projects, managing change and many more.
