Customized programs with defined outcomes

Cindy Rivka Marshall listens carefully to a client’s needs and designs a process based on their goals. With her excellent workshop planning and facilitation skills, Cindy delivers on the outcomes you define together.

Facilitated listening and interaction

Cindy creates a structured space and time for all points of view to be heard and appreciated. She elicits anecdotes of moments of success, and leads groups to build upon these positive outcomes and articulate a vision. She coaches individuals and groups to tell their stories effectively. These stories can reinforce, guide future planning and be used to communicate organizational message internally and out to a wider community.
