Kientzler Consulting has developed a collaborative and organic process comprised of three phases:
We select from a dynamic toolbox to match the right combination of methodologies for your organization’s strategic objectives:
FACILITATION OF SMALL
AND LARGE GROUPS
Facilitation of Small and Large Groups
Whether with small or large groups, internal or external stakeholders, or the steering committee connected most closely to the project, we will provide process facilitation designed to identify the common ground amongst individuals and ensure clarity throughout all phases of the project.
We facilitate events, meetings and workshops that create a positive, memorable and meaningful experience, tied to your desired outcomes. The design is intentional and focused on maximizing the energy and well-being of each participant. In addition to facilitation, we create the architecture and design behind such events – giving consideration to every touch point and opportunity for engagement through the integration of multiple disciplines and approaches - with a focus on individual wellness. We also develop graphically-rich visual presentations to guide the experience.
EXECUTIVE COACHING AND
STRATEGIC THOUGHT PARTNERSHIP
EXECUTIVE COACHING AND
STRATEGIC THOUGHT PARTNERSHIP
Alesha Kientzler serves as a coach, strategic thought-partner and overall guide to executive leaders, co-navigating professional areas of focus (e.g., organizational vision, innovation ideation, strategic thinking), as well as elements of personal well-being (e.g., exercise, mindfulness, nutrition, sleep habits) - often finding an interconnectedness between the two.
SYNTHESIS AND APPLICATION
DATA GATHERING, SYNTHESIS
When developing a new vision or strategic direction in an organization, it is important to have supporting data for your approach. Using various qualitative and quantitative methods, we design a customized research agenda to capture the voice of the organization-at-large. This may include conducting needs assessments, analyzing pre-and post-test outcomes, trend-monitoring and more -- whatever the project calls for where data can make a positive contribution. Data are consistently analyzed, applied and integrated into the process, as appropriate.
While presentation templates serve a purpose, they often fall short in facilitating positive, memorable and meaningful experiences. In contrast, information design is about leveraging best-in-class storytelling techniques, video, and animation production to create an integrated strategic communication platform that facilitates maximum engagement and business value. Kientzler Consulting partners with TorchThink, a creative design agency, to develop customized information design products that reflect an organization’s core messages through the most relevant modes.
Sustainable progress in implementing a new vision and strategic direction requires consistent communication with internal and external stakeholders via informal meetings and individual conversations. Whether on-site or from a virtual platform, our team serves as the integration agents, weaving together salient communication touch points between stakeholders and team members, ensuring that the process stays on track and that stakeholders remain fully informed and engaged.
CURRICULUM PROGRAM DESIGN
When a new vision and strategic direction require expanded competencies within your team, or communication about the changes underway, a well-designed educational platform is essential. We develop customized learning programs and curricula in support of your process, including dissemination through dynamic information design and teaching approaches.
We keep an eye on the strategic priorities, allowing the core direction to drive the development of a working timeline to track progress and achieve set milestones. We apply a highly organized approach to project management, ensuring effective communication within and across internal stakeholders, keeping them informed and updated, providing consistent clarity around individual roles and expectations.
PERSONAL WELLNESS COACHING
It is well known that individual performance is positively correlated with consistent personal health and wellness practices. Alesha Kientzler serves as a wellness coach to executives, and their teams, by developing customized wellness programs aimed at harnessing the power of the intersection between the mind and the body.
TorchThink is our premiere partner for innovative information design, translating all elements of a vision and organizational transformation into impactful and consumable communication platforms.
Alesha’s facilitation, coaching skills and content expertise were invaluable in launching a strategic redesign process for my YMCA. Under Alesha’s guidance, we strengthened an absolutely indispensable partnership and created the foundation for an amazing transformation of our campus and community wellness programs. She kept our team fully engaged through her integrated thinking style that focused on the physical environment, people and purpose, and kept us on track with clear communication, timelines and amazing visual tools.
Alesha has an engaging presence and style. She’s great at “reading” a group, assuring that everyone is working from a shared set of assumptions, acknowledging current realities, and encouraging big, visionary thinking. She’s the kind of consultant (and person) who, once you have worked with her once, you want to work with her again!
