What did California FarmLink need?

Kelly helped California FarmLink develop and refine their people management skills.

Why is this project important?

It will help to assure that a recent hire maintains a good start in their job, and the ability to share and model personnel management practices with my mgt team peers in the organization. It will help the young professional/hire to feel great about their work, and enthusiastic when engaging our clients/community.

This project will save us $7,248, allowing us to utilize our $500/pp professional development budget for additional purposes, as well as help to gain vital input and skills development while meeting our annual budget targets.

What did Kelly have to offer?

My favorite moment of my work day is when someone asks, "Do you have a minute?"

That question holds so much potential - a new idea to shape, a problem to solve, a career move to discuss. Most importantly, it means that someone trusts me.

In previous jobs, I always made time for that "minute," but other obligations often pulled me away sooner than I wanted (these discussions are never really just a minute).

My favorite moment of my work day is when someone asks, "Do you have a minute?"

That question holds so much potential - a new idea to shape, a problem to solve, a career move to discuss. Most importantly, it means that someone trusts me.

In previous jobs, I always made time for that "minute," but other obligations often pulled me away sooner than I wanted (these discussions are never really just a minute).

With Cogency, I can answer Yes to that question and have the time focus fully on the discussion - to focus on what you need. I provide mentorship, coaching, and training to individuals and leaders looking to expand their skills, set their sights higher, or find supportive encouragement in what can be a lonely work world.

My background has allowed me to gain experience across industries and roles - experience that I can share with you.
* I've been a contributor, a project lead, a supervisor, a team manager, and a director. I've led teams of 3
people, teams with more than 40 people, and teams that worked in different countries.
* I've worked in leadership roles for companies going through huge growth; deep downturns and
layoffs; and mergers, consolidations, and reorganizations.
* I've had wonderful bosses, terrible bosses, and ones I never met at all.
* I've made mistakes and had successes - sometimes because of the mistakes.

What this means is that I have lots of experience that I can share with you, regardless of the industry or role you are in now.

Specialties
* Mentoring
* Leadership development
* Team building
* Communication
* Strategic Planning
* Process development and process improvement

The support is as unique as you are. Message me to set aside time for your "minute." Let's talk about your professional goals and what I can do to you help you achieve them.
