As a Facilitator with extensive experience in the areas of Governance, Leadership and Management, Ruth facilitates discussions and decisions in the following areas:

  • Visioning and Positioning
  • Governance Design and Development
  • Leadership and Management Development
  • Strategic Thinking, Planning and Change

Visioning and Positioning

Does your team:

  • have a clear vision of its desired future?
  • take advantage of opportunities in its environment?
  • position itself for success?


Visioning is a powerful process for engaging your team in articulating and committing to a future direction. Facilitating conversations about a shared vision builds consensus, commitment and excitement for the desired future.

How we can help:

  1. Facilitate visioning and strategic conversations
  2. Use scenarios to envision possible futures

Governance Design and Development

Does your board:

  • have the right governance structure for the 21st century?
  • use a governance model that matches your organization’s lifecycle stage?
  • Contribute to the organization’s success?


Governance is in an evolutionary stage: traditional models don’t often meet the needs of today’s increasingly complex environments. Adaptive or Hybrid Governance Models are emerging as the most viable alternative. Their inherent flexibility allows them to evolve quickly as an organization transforms.

How we can help:

  1. Educate boards on governance models and functions
  2. Facilitate the transition to a new governance structure

Leadership & Management Development

Does your leadership:

  • take a strategic approach in governing and managing the organization?
  • have the full set of competencies required to achieve the vision?
  • create conditions which support a performance culture?


Strategic leadership is critical to an organization’s ability to succeed in complex and dynamic environments. Leaders are responsible for articulating and enacting an organization’s Mission and Vision. Leaders who create a learning and performance culture can engage stakeholders to work collaboratively to attain a shared vision.

How we can help:

  1. Coach key players for high performance
  2. Identify strategies to create a learning and performance culture

Strategic Thinking, Planning & Change

Does your leadership:

  • respond strategically to challenges and opportunities?
  • engage in strategic thinking on a regular basis?
  • create conditions for change-ability?


Strategic thinking and planning keeps an organization connected to its external environment and helps align resources with strategic directions. Involving an external facilitator in these processes can bring structure and build consensus around a shared vision. Creating conditions for change-ability in complex environments is a critical factor for success in implementing strategic directions.

How we can help:

  1. Identify strategies to create change-ability in teams and organizations
  2. Apply strategic thinking to planning, problem-solving and decision-making
