- Coaching executives (groups and individuals)
- Leading strategic alignment, culture change, and/or organization redesign efforts
- Designing and leading corporate learning in the areas of leadership, productive reasoning and communication skills.
Trish has 25 years of experience working with organizations facing rapid changes in technology, markets, strategy, and leadership.

She helps groups convert seemingly intractable conflicts into productive conversations, from which high quality, timely, and actionable decisions are made.
