Road to reorganization

When people hear that a reorganization is in the works, there’s a tendency to think it means a new org chart. While structure is critically important, organizational redesign is so much bigger than inserting names in boxes and determining reporting relationships. A redesign is all about understanding an organization’s operating model and aligning its structure,

Resigility’s unwritten mantra

While Resigility is best known for driving resilience and agility in client organizations and communities, there’s an unwritten mantra that also defines the company: getting things done and overcoming challenges. I rely on this ability in my work with clients and as an Assistant Scoutmaster for my son’s Boy Scout troop. Two recent examples from

Celebrating Resigility’s seventh anniversary

About a week or so ago Resigility celebrated its seventh anniversary, and I wanted to take a moment to reflect on how much progress the company has made in its relatively brief history. After founding Resigility in 2015, our then-CEO Patricia Obermaier brought me aboard in October 2016 as vice president of Client Services. Having

Creating a new world of inclusion and community

Over the last eight years, I’ve become widely known among family, friends, clients, colleagues and even casual acquaintances as the volunteer gymnastics and cheer coach for Special Olympics Northern Virginia. That’s because I talk a lot—possibly too much—about the magnitude of happiness, pleasure and fulfilment I receive from working with Special Olympics athletes. I’ve had the

Creating collaboration by breaking down silos

Our work at Resigility often involves helping clients develop strategies to transform, break down silos and improve results. With organizations of all shapes and sizes struggling to build stronger relationships across internal departments, I wanted to share some insights and outcomes from working with a client that’s enhancing cross-team collaboration. Reorganization We began working

What shelter dogs can teach us about resilience

As a volunteer at a local animal shelter in Atlanta I am constantly amazed at the resiliency of shelter dogs. If a dog ends up at the rescue where I’ve volunteered for five and a half years, it first landed at one of the massive county shelters as a stray, owner surrender or as

Managing resistance to change

Change is hard. We all experience the challenge of change, whether getting a preschooler (or high- school student, for that matter!) to put on their shoes or, in my work, helping clients improve efficiency. Resistance is the underlying factor that prevents change. As a management consulting firm, Resigility is often asked to help clients develop

Pursuing effective communication

Nobel Prize winner George Bernard Shaw once wrote, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” Whether connecting in person or by email, phone or video call, we can still miss the mark despite the variety of communication methods available today. Pursuing effective communication can be the difference between

Establishing enterprise-wide data capabilities

Will it ever be possible for organizations to establish enterprise-wide data management capabilities while they engage in what I call tactical “data fixing” activities? It’s a question I’ve asked over the past 20 years of advising companies on data management strategies because I frequently find businesses and government agencies managing data within a functional

March also is Women’s History Month, commemorating the study, observance and celebration of the vital role of women in American history. As a strategy and information management consulting firm and proud Women-Owned Small Business
