I come from a background in economic development and chambers of commerce. In the last couple of years spent running a fair sized chamber I became aware of Strategic Doing from LinkedIn posts on workforce development in different places. I liked what I was seeing and kept thinking that i would take the introductory course but time never worked out. Then, three years ago I started my own consulting firm to work with chambers, economic development organizations, city governments and others. The first couple of clients wanted facilitation for board planning so that’s what I did. But at the end, I left knowing the nicely lined-out goals and strategies would likely end up sitting on the shelf because the board members were not engaged to the level of taking action themselves. When the Strategic Doing introductory course was offered on-line in the fall of 2020 I jumped on board. It was all I believed it to be. I am excited to share this with client communities and organizations.
