Partners and clients I work with globally are interested in collaborative, trust-based, inclusive, learning-oriented, and long-term approaches to improving how they go about achieving systemic change. I have experience managing and working in mixed, multi-cultural teams across the globe, leveraging the skills and expertise of different colleagues and perspectives. I work with partners and clients individually but seek collaboration in different shapes and forms when a project will be stronger through a team approach. To do so successfully, I build on an extensive network of other experts, organizations I have partnered with in the past, and expert rosters I have been invited to join. I work with various international partners and clients (for examples of recent clients and partners, please take a look at my full detailed CV and 2-page resume). I tailor specific approaches and tools to my projects, for example, from CDA Collaborative Learning Projects and the Human Systems Dynamics Institute
