"I have utilized the Strategic Start (onboarding process) sponsored by Performance Partners for several years. It has been a most positive way to induct state Executive Directors and state staff managers affiliated with the National Education Association. They like the process and embrace it as a benefit to help them to understand/learn the culture and stakeholders within this political and complex system. As a manager and practitioner of this process, I believe it is a powerful tool which has helped new staff succeed in their new management positions.”
Dan Hand, Manager for Training, Conferences and Affiliate Support National Education Association
“The Strategic Start process has been invaluable for NEA staff leaders as it provides a forum for honest dialogue about organizational culture and individual expectations early in a managerial relationship. Best of all, Strategic Start drives to a concrete outcome that helps guide managers and their teams for months or years to follow.”
Secky Fascione, Organizing Director, National Education Association
Connie participated with me in boldly kicking off a complete cultural assessment and change process to create a paradigm shift for the Office of the CFO. With Connie's assistance, my organization developed a collective vision for a high performing team and a shared understanding of what was working well; and, we targeted opportunities for improvement. The CFO leadership team established very clear strategic goals for the organization and key strategies to achieve the goals, with action plans that were implemented annually. It was exciting to see the changes that occurred in the organization as the process through which Connie guided us unfolded. The result was a much improved, high performing leadership team, dedicated to success through a commitment to the organization's core values and goals and, most importantly, to building and sustaining effective working relationships. Nancy Abell, Associate Director of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
"The Performance Partners team quickly developed insights into the organization and its needs and developed actions that helped the organization move forward.”

"We leave this seminar with so many valuable resources. Connie is such a pleasure to learn from—a positive, upbeat and knowledgeable teacher. What was most helpful to me was all the practice sessions. I feel confident that I will be able to effectively bring this to my company.”
“The training hits the mark. We have successfully used this executive transition process at NASA Goddard and it is part of our onboarding. I found the practice, customization conversation and marketing materials most valuable.”
Dr. Howard Kea, NASA
