Work With Organizations
 

I think of all organizational development work as a combination of facilitation, assessment, and training. My goal is to facilitate processes that will support you in meeting your goals, while building your capacity to do this work.

“I have had the opportunity to work with many effective coaches, consultants and facilitators over the course of my career, but Tasha’s calm demeanor matched with her personal commitment to developing the individual as well as the team is unique and compelling.”

~ Rebecca Channer, Independent Consultant

My areas of deep experience include:

  • Nurturing respect and trust, accountability and empowerment

  • Building commitment and capacity for intentional change

  • Organizational assessment/identifying and working through challenges

  • Effective decision-making

  • Meeting and process design and facilitation

  • Leadership development

  • Increasing equity and inclusion, and particularly working with white folks to learn about and heal around systemic racism so they can better recognize and deconstruct white privilege and be stronger anti-racist co-conspirators for BIPOC.

I have experience working with nonprofits, intentional/ cohousing communities, community land trusts, businesses, government agencies/departments, start-ups, and coalitions.

I work with groups to co-design and facilitate meetings, retreats, and processes. My dual focus is to help you get the work done while building the capacity of the group and the people in the group.

One of the best ways to build capacity in your organization is to provide coaching for people or teams. Unlike training, coaching is deeply interactive and focused on exactly the areas the person or team need to grow.
