Founder and President
Dedicated to Creating Healthy, Thriving Organizations
Many years ago while facilitating stress management workshops for Fortune 500 employees, Connie discovered how much unhealthy stress and anxiety was generated by toxic organization cultures – bad bosses, fear-based management styles, political in-fighting, people under-appreciated and overworked and dysfunctional decision making. If these were the best companies, what was happening at the worst? This began a lifelong mission to support leaders in creating healthy organizations where people thrive and the organization prospers.
Academically Trained, Real World Grounded
Building upon undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Education from Montclair State University, she entered one of the most respected and highly-rated Master’s programs for understanding Organization Behavior, earning a Master’s in Human and Organization Development from American University and NTL. Her real world experience as a Quality Director and Director of Training for Johnson & Johnson and Director of Organization Effectiveness at Freddie Mac enables her to truly understand the executive role. In 1993 she founded Performance Partners.
A lifelong learner, Connie has never stopped adding to her expertise, including a 2 year coaching certification from Newfield Network; a one year executive teambuilding certification from Human Factors; certification in the Balanced Scorecard by Kaplan and Norton; Culture Transformation Tools certification by Richard Barrett and Culture Change by Human Synergistics. Her unique expertise also includes development of proprietary systems such as Performance Partners Strategic Start® and additional certifications too numerous and diverse to list but available and happily shared upon request.
