Thanks for facilitating our training last month at the Delta Stewardship Council. I wanted to pass along an observation that several of us made following the training you might enjoy:
The environment you fostered for having difficult discussions as part of our exploration of emotional intelligence and learning emotional leadership skills was well-received and demonstrated during the day. We explored a couple of issues that were emotionally and personally charged, and the effect of dealing with it together was heart-warming and successful. Kudos to you for providing a place where we could explore difficult issues as a group and come out of the experience successfully and with a workable solution.
Steve Culberson, Delta Stewardship Council
“Beth Wonson came to us in a time where as a non profit we needed to evaluate ourselves and our direction as we took another step of growth and change. She is a professional who quickly understood our issues and dynamics. She is skillful with facilitation, evaluation, and team building. Beth Wonson helped us work through challenges at a critical moment in an effective way such that we are on a better path to meet our mission. I was utterly skeptical at the beginning and by the end I was entirely grateful.”

Beth Wonson facilitated a DiSC assessment workshop for the management and staff of McKinleyville Community Services District. Beth's presentation was informative and she managed to engaged our entire team. I found her explanations related to human behavior enlightening and would invite her back without hesitation.

Beth Wonson Consulting conducted an amazing 2 day core staff training for 9 of our YMCA staff last year. Our purpose was both to solidify our team, define our leadership styles and to work through some challenges we’d had the first part of 2014. Not only was her approach with all of us diverse and useful, it was FUN! Beth kept us riveted, active, engaged and her methods were delightfully non-predictable. So many of us go through training after training that her style was a breath of fresh (and highly useful!) air.
In addition to her 2 day services, Beth spend quite a bit of preliminary time at our core staff meetings getting to know us and identify our dynamics to better prepare for our 2 day investment. She also offered follow up services, both as a group and open to us individually. We were pleased to take advantage of all of the above. As CEO of the Santa Maria Valley YMCA, I highly recommend Beth Wonson Consulting Services.
