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

Celebrating International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a global day for celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. 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

What will the return to the workplace look like?

While everyone is worried about the Great Resignation and its impact on our labor market and economy, I’m concerned about the return to the workplace — what will it look like, when will it happen and are we in for the traditional on-site work environment of pre-COVID days or, more likely, a mix of

Book review: ‘The Ideal Team Player’

Author Patrick Lencioni is known for telling leadership fables, which I love because they’re such a thought-provoking way of sharing insights, tips and lessons learned. I recently read his book, “The Ideal Team Player,” which tells the fictitious story of Jeff Shanley, a leader trying to save his uncle's company by restoring a culture of
