STRATEGIC VISIONING + PLANNING
Stina works with individuals, groups and organizations to take a quantum leap, together.
She designs and leads processes to create new human capacity, new shared awareness, new relationships, new trust, new vision, new clarity and new plans. Stina helps groups imagine, relate, learn and make decisions together – they see what’s real and determine what they want to make real.
Stina was amazing. There is no way the group would have had such focused, productive conversations without her. Her ability to synthesize information and tease insights out of conversations was essential to keeping us on track and making sure we didn’t get too lost in the weeds. Perhaps most importantly, Stina was so good at putting us immediately at ease and making us feel comfortable. ~ Wasan Retreat Client 2019
Working with People to Ignite a Fundamentally Different Reality
In Stina’s process design and coaching work – the objective is to work with people to ignite a fundamentally different reality.Clients are the creators of new realities. Stina guides the process for those leaps to be realized and works with leaders to establish new supports, skills and habits to crystalize those new realities. Her invention, method, and creativity go beyond skilled process design. Her art is facilitating state-shifting within leaders and organizations. Often with strategic planning, an “event” can happen, and the past and present essentially stay the same. Not so with Stina!
In whatever capacity you have opportunity to work with Stina, count yourself very lucky. And hang on: You’re about to go for a remarkable ride! ~Mike Rowlands, Junxion
What’s the value of having Stina involved in your retreat?
Stina sets the stage for deep trust and sharing at our annual retreat. She works with our wiley band of entrepreneurs to design an agenda that never loses momentum and she pilots us through a focused, five day process of sharing and discovery. Under her expert guidance, new ideas and deep understanding comes to the surface
Stina’s facilitation goes beyond just facilitation. Her facilitation about connection, cohesion, and vulnerability. She has the ability to create a safe space for tough work and conversations.
I’ve worked with numerous facilitators over the years and Stina was hands down one of the best! She has the amazing ability to focus the group, pull out the gems of the conversations, and ultimately create a unique and meaningful experience for the group.
Stina has a delightful, calm presence and super smart ways to wrangle a group of headstrong, Type A, entrepreneurs. She’s consistently able to keep things moving on schedule, to keep a positive and collaborative tone, and to provide a solid point around which to pivot.
Stina is able to understand how to work with high-powered Type A individuals. She can support the work as well as make people feel safe in sharing. It’s a difficult skill to balance listening with empathetic and insightful comments, which is what Stina can do. I never felt rushed or put upon by Stina. She facilitates with compassion and love.
How do we “get together” in groups, now?
Stina is here to support your group work through phone calls, Zoom meetings, written correspondence and process design for all that can happen offline. Whether it’s coaching, a courageous conversation, an important decision-making meeting or a visioning and planning session, Stina can help. She is also providing hybrid or in person meeting services as health guidelines and realities allow on a case-by-case basis.
It used to be that there were 3 forces coming together in meetings:
- The intention of the gathering and the facilitation of that intention
- The group of individuals who are gathering as a group
- The place – the physical location of where we met
Now – location can be everywhere and nowhere – if we are online. Meaning, we are now in the meeting place of each of us as an individual. We have become #3. We’ve become the meeting location, it’s inside of us. Clients now tend to have a combination of online and in person sessions. Contact Stina to see what the right process could look like for you and your team or organization.
“The quality of your attention determines the quality of other people’s thinking” ~Nancy Kline
Stina is always focused on outcomes for our group. She knows why we’re there and skillfully leads us over the finish line. Having Stina facilitate our retreat ensures that at the end of five days we leave with the insights, ideas and roadmaps we came for. With Stina in the room there’s no going off the rails.
Stina is a deeply thoughtful and insightful facilitator. She intuitively understands the dynamics of a group, easily navigating between real-time needs and an established agenda. Not every facilitator brings wit, kindness and empathy to their process – Stina does, and the results speak for themselves.
If you want someone who can skillfully maneuver a group of very different people into a single, engaging experience that has meaning and value to all present, Stina is who you should hire. Strategic Planning Client
