What Others Have Said About Strategic Business Partner (A-Z)
“The strategic coaching I have received from Amanda in the Strategic Business Partner A-Z class couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I consider a career path change. Drafting my own personal strategic plan, complete with action items and timelines to achieve those milestones has been a life altering event for me. I have a much clearer vision of what I want my future to hold, and I am excited to move forward. By going through this powerful exercise and then presenting my plan to my classmate peers, I also have confidence in myself that I will indeed meet my personal goals.”
"Taking this class caused an enormous mind shift, especially with regard to mentoring that has flowed over into my personal life as well, causing me to stop and ask good questions in order to understand the true nature of the situation before rushing off to solve it! The class as a whole has made me a better H.R. Manager and has given me the necessary skills to be a more effective leader and a business partner in my organization."
"I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in broadening their consulting skills. I have found more opportunity to be a strategist in my work than I ever thought possible. Now, my role adds such a different value than it did before. Thank you, Amanda!"

"This methodology is invaluable and I often found myself applying the class materials immediately! The process is so logical and results oriented, I continue to utilize the process on almost every project I work on."
"I wanted to take this opportunity, Amanda, to sincerely thank you for the wonderful learning experience that you created in our recent "Strategic HR" class. You were extremely effective in bringing different levels of expertise from varying organizations together for a great combination of learning adults. You have a terrific ability to pull from each person’s strengths to complement the curriculum and work respectfully to build up those areas in need of improvement. Your professional, yet personal style makes it a safe place to practice these skills that are easily applied in the real world immediately. In addition, that open learning environment was pleasantly productive allowing us to build professional relationships with the other participants that will last much longer than the duration of the class. I appreciate that!
I would strongly recommend this to other business professionals regardless of their position in a human resource role. The tools you offer are important in moving forward all aspects of a successful business. Your background, knowledge and exposure to many industries make this extremely relevant to many who are either in the strategic decision making roles or are striving to be there.
Please keep me posted on any future training opportunities that you will be teaching. I would be extremely interested as would others on our team."
