Hearing from SoDo Consulting's Long List of Satisfied Clients
"I worked with Amy in rebuilding the people agenda and talent management strategy at Zones. Amy is an inspirational leader who can quickly and adeptly make a positive and lasting impact in an organization. I found Amy to be a strategic and collaborative partner who raised the bar for how we think about people and talent at Zones. She also is a very effective coach to senior executives and builds trust easily. I'd recommend Amy highly. "
Lori Stewart, Vice President of Human Resources, Zones
"Amy is an incredibly insightful and talented OD professional who is greatly adept at getting to the heart of key issues in an organization and create a clear path forward. I had the privilege of working with her on a team for our Entertainment & Devices division of Microsoft to revamp our High Potential Talent program. Not only were we able to come up with a great solution under her leadership, but those of us that participated in the process were given a voice and encouraged to contribute our best to the project. Amy is an energetic, articulate, decisive, collaborative consultant and achieves great results for the clients she works with. I’d recommend her talents any day."
Elizabeth (Ellie) Gates, Head of Enterprise Learning & Leadership Development Programs at Adobe Systems
"Amy is not only a solid consultant and communicator, she is a terrific coach. She's participated with us at SeattleCoach for the past year and impressed all of us with her grace, intuition and forthrightness. Hire this woman!"
Patricia Burgin, MA, Master Certified Coach, SeattleCoach: Executive Coaching, Leadership Development, Change Management and Certified Coach Training
"I have had the pleasure to work with Amy at both Microsoft and Seattle Genetics. Amy is smart, savvy, and highly adaptable to industry and cultural needs. She provides excellent, thorough feedback. She makes a great partner as well! "
Jodi Jamieson, GPHR, HR Director at Seattle Genetics
"I had the opportunity to work with Amy on the Microsoft-wide High Potential development strategy. She was a very valued colleague and partner.
Amy exhibited a laser focus on client and business needs, and challenged me constantly to make sure that we were both achieving the client's goal and not ours. She was a strong believer that what worked best was what worked for the business. Another behavior that impressed me was that she was always outcome-oriented versus process-oriented; she was pragmatic, a strong practitioner with a strong intellectual foundation and a clear thinker.
In terms of our partnership, Amy was courageous, a straight-talker, and had a no-nonsense approach, clearly understanding that partnering means adding value to each other; she offered and accepted ideas, always brings a win-win attitude.
I can recommend Amy without hesitation based on my experience working with her through the years. If you are seeking a professional who deeply understands what it takes to successfully develop leaders, and do it in a way that always focuses on the desired results, Amy will bring her knowledge, work ethic, and commitment to excellence to the table every time. If I had the opportunity again, I would work with Amy in a heartbeat! "
