was first introduced to Randi Brenowitz via a webcast. The topic
she was addressing was relevant to our organization (Virtual Teams)
and her voice and her presentation engaged me. Afterwards, I learned
that another colleague had previously worked with Randi and before
long we were talking about how to develop a project for our management
served as an "expert consultant" to our HR organization
and she helped us like an "extra set of hands" as we
designed an interactive webcast. Our work together resulted in
a program that was thoughtfully planned, targeted to meet our
objectives, and professionally executed. I found that working
with Randi was an enriching experience for all of us involved.
I really appreciated Randi's willingness to work with our "best
practices" management model, to provide coaching to our managers
who became her co-presenters on our webcast, and to make available
additional resource material to supplement our training session.
I found Randi to be extremely resourceful and knowledgeable on
a variety of subjects. I think Randi effectively balanced her
role with my various responsibilities in the organization and
I would welcome the opportunity to work with Randi again!"
Assistant Vice-President Human Resources,
first met Randi Brenowitz when I was working for another company.
She did such an excellent job helping us move from a traditional
hierarchy to a team-based structure, that when I came here I knew
I would retain her again. I am leading a new management team and
Randi used her Team Essentials Model to help us create the kind
of environment and infrastructure we wanted right from the start."
Vice President & General Manager,
was faced with building an HR team that was located at two sites
in California and one in Scotland. Brenowitz Consulting's Team
Essentials Model helped us clarify what being on a geographically
dispersed team meant to us and how we had to modify our perception
of teams and team-work. Randi not only helped us form our own
team, but made us much better
consultants and advisors to our line business partners."
Director of Human Resources,
have worked with Randi Brenowitz on several occasions in the areas
of team building and most recently, executive coaching. Our first
encounter was when she got involved to help my boss, the Senior
Director of Manufacturing, build a strong manufacturing team in
a fast growing, highly dynamic business climate. We were a group
of individuals faced with tremendous change, while the business
was ramping. Randi was very successful in assisting us to become
a team and we ended up as a high performing team! Most recently,
she has provided personal coaching to me as I entered the executive
ranks. She met with my colleagues, superior, and subordinates
to understand my strengths and development areas and helped author
my development plan. What I have enjoyed the most in working with
Randi is her flexibility in understanding the strategic and the
tactical and her knowing when to be strategic or tactical."
Equipment Manufacturing Firm
one of our members moved across the country and began telecommuting,
we had difficulty maintaining our team. Brenowitz Consulting worked
with us to identify the implications of telecommuting and to develop
protocols and processes that enabled us to keep our standards
of high-performance and regular collaboration."
initially learned of Brenowitz Consulting when becoming involved
in a project to shift an organization from a traditional hierarchy
structure to a team-based environment. The increased communication
and productivity that resulted from the change left a positive
impression. When I moved to my current position at another firm,
I found many of the same internal issues. I engaged Randi Brenowitz
to assist in creating a team-oriented environment within my departments.
The change in communication patterns has clearly increased the
effectiveness of my teams. This type of behavior shift can be
difficult for an organization, and the use of an outside agent
makes it much less threatening to employees."
Sr. Director of Business Development
conjunction with the introduction of a core process for new product
development, our company was going through major changes in both
managements and business processes. Brenowitz Consulting supported
us in the team building aspect of those changes. Randi's support
was critical for the program's success. My team was the first
to go through the program and Randi worked with us in a very practical
and professional way. The results were very enlightening although
success did not come overnight. Through the patience and reinforcement
that Randi, the engineers on our team showed more understanding
and patience when communicating with their colleagues. The clear
messages from Brenowitz Consulting were vital to our achieving
a new level of collaboration."
