I provide services for both long-term (e.g., program evaluation, facilitation of change efforts) and short-term engagement (e.g., workshops, trainings, planning time). More details about my services are provided below to give you an idea of how empowered consulting can support you.
In addition, I offer a free 30 minute consultation to identify what services may be right for you. Please contact me for more details.
You need someone who can...
Support a team meeting, workshop, or event with facilitation.
Facilitation. We all love events where we leave feeling energized and productive. Planning for these types of events can take a lot of time and effort. I can support you through the planning process to help you tailor the structure of your event to your desired outcomes. Let me help you choose the right activity or establish conversation guidelines to ensure your event runs smoothly. If desired, I can facilitate your event in person or virtually, enabling you to focus on participating in the event and interacting with others.
Research. Projects can be strengthened with an effective program evaluation component. Program evaluation activities include providing evidence of the project's progress, as well as recommendations for moving forward. Program evaluation typically consists of an annual site visit, check-in meetings when needed, and formative and summative evaluation reports that can be used by the project team. These activities can be conducted virtually.
Support the development, implementation, and evaluation of your research proposal.
Change. Change is hard! It is more approachable when you have a roadmap to guide your change effort. I can help you develop a logic model or theory of change for your project. This process will help you articulate the assumptions you and your team are making and identify anticipated outcomes from the change project. The resulting logic model or theory of change will help you determine next steps for the change initiative and research.
I can also support you in implementing the Departmental Action Team (DAT) Model for change in higher education. With several years of experience facilitating DATs and researching their impacts, I can help you determine if this model fits your needs.
Support a change effort.
Culture. Some teams you enjoy working with more than others. Why is that? I can help you build your team's culture through engaging practices that encourage equity and reflection. Having an established, positive culture helps teams make it through challenges, and I can provide teams with the skills they need to be responsive rather than reactive when challenging situations arise.
Intentionally build your team’s culture.
Communicate. You are an expert, but you need to explain your research to an audience who may not have even heard of your field. I can help you craft materials to share your project with others so they can get excited about it, too!
