Multidimensional Approach

Jamie’s consulting style is unique, personal and inventive. While addressing each client’s specific business challenges, she aligns herself with the client’s personality and culture while sparking interest in exploring new perspectives and inspiring their organization to learn and grow. She has subtly woven more “ancient wisdom” and more “nature and outdoor based” methodologies into her work with clients for many years in the ways she designs novel collective experiences. Because she believes there is no difference between personal and organizational leadership, she strives to earn the privilege of being a trusted advisor to her clients as they travel along their leadership journey where ever it may take them.


Interests

When Jamie is not consulting with organizations, she leads wilderness oriented personal growth and leadership experiences near her home in Sedona, Arizona. She is a founding member of Mediators Beyond Borders, a non-profit global peacemaking organization and a member of The Wilderness Guides Council, committed to reintroducing earth wisdom and ancient ways to modern culture to help create and maintain a sustainable society.

“Jamie’s exceptional skills and talents cover a broad spectrum of capabilities in the organizational effectiveness arena. During my tenure at Walt Disney World she was a lead consultant for us in major culture change efforts and worked with the senior team to develop a transformational leadership mind set and skills to prepare us to address sweeping changes and growth in our company. She is a master in bringing together teams with differing and competing agendas and engaging them in efforts to solve complex problems together. An engaging coach and thought partner, Jamie was instrumental in helping me clarify my own leadership values and strategies and in developing a plan for sharing those with others in key leadership positions.“

“I worked with Jamie on an employee retention initiative when I was Senior Vice President of Operations at Universal Studios Florida. Our task was to bring people together from around the company to analyze issues, develop and test hypotheses and create solutions. Using collaborative methods and dialogue skills , we became a dedicated confident team who could effectively meet with and sell our ideas to senior management.
