Data-driven People Energy and Performance to Create Sustainable Change
Deb has three main channels for the work she & her team does to aid you renewal and planning to maximize your organization’s productivity.
1) This site, REVELN Consulting, LLC, covers the head, heart & hands helping you align your data, people and passion for business systemically. We are known for our deep expertise in meeting design, facilitation (medium to large-group methods), speaking topics, consulting & executive leader coaching engagements. Drama, power plays and apathy are often platforms for change:
- Drama or Vision/ Energy-based Positive Change?
- Power or Connected Community?
- Stifling Apathy or Understanding Resistance?
Reveln is also a concept based in the words revelation & reveling. I help remove interference as well as maximize your business leader & teams / groups’ experience while building workforce engagement and productivity. This includes having fun in and at work.
Engagement and change agility powers productivity!
We use principles of community and co-creation to help your organization more fully capture its passions and yearnings.
You can contact me here for a chat on how I can help you leverage the smarts in and around your organization, such as in dealing with change in our VUCA world, one that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous, described in Deb’s online Talent and Performance Development and Change Leadership Watch ScoopIt newsletters.
I’m also pictured here, (in orange) as a panelist at a global change conference, the 2012 ACMP, offering: Success Secrets of Trusted Change Advisors. More photos of this event are here.
I’m also a leadership coach and part of the human two-legged herd, with Horseplay, via colleagues Christina Pitts and Lynne Aldridge. I’ve been impressed with the depth and quality of leadership learning of leader teams and individuals who participate in a Horseplay day and program, offered locally and nationally. Photos:
3) My third area of service, that reflects my current experience with large group methods is, social media, which helps power communication among change leaders, consultants, coaches & business owners. I do this via the Social Media Learning Lab (SMLL).
See The Social Media Learning Lab page on my REVELN.com site here.
We also have a OPEN LinkedIn group here that you can join (by request, to prevent spam). In this group we exchange views and discuss social media questions, learning how to leverage SOCIAL for your business success.
I was interviewed by a respected marketing specialist on why and what I do here, thanks to brand designer @Kristine Putt (ParagonMoon.)
