Empowering Leadership, the new article series for leadership development, by Del Albright -- helping to lead volunteers to victory!
We offer professional facilitation and meeting management to organizations and businesses. With over 2000 hours of facilitation to more than 9000 people, we can bring life to your meeting or conference, while eliminating wasted time and effort. One of our specialities is Strategic Planning, or long range planning. We also provide unique and professional assistance to disaster planning efforts and emergency response needs
Here's what Adena Cook, Public Lands Director for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said about our services in her Board Report for 2002:
"(The BlueRibbon Coalition has) been able to act quickly when confronted with national threats or opportunities, and have been able to pursue innovative solutions. We have not been burdened with an internal bureaucracy that could favor more tentative approaches. Yet as we grew and matured, we saw the need for a strategic plan. Thanks to Del Albright's able facilitation at a spring directors meeting some years ago, we put it together and put it in place. Periodically, we've reviewed where we are and make future plans. In the process, we've not sacrificed innovation or our ability to act quickly."
