Case Studies


 
I’ve had the good fortune to work with Sarah Milston on several occasions as she led strategic planning and visioning sessions for our Board of Directors. In addition to being well-prepared with creative exercises and techniques to challenge our thinking, she was also able to diplomatically navigate complex and sometimes sensitive issues with ease – quickly diffusing tension without ignoring the difficult questions. She actively engaged the room and never allowed one voice to dominate the conversation.
Following our last board session with Sarah, I had a number of board members and staff tell me it was the best meeting we’d ever had and congratulate me on my foresight in engaging her services. She made me look brilliant!
