Unifying teams so companies can grow

 
 

Ever feel like your team culture isn’t where you want it to be?

Your customers aren’t buying?

Your donors aren’t donating?

Can’t figure out why?


I know that you want to have an organization that’s efficient, excited to show up to work and customers knocking down your door.

To make that happen, you need a culture that’s buzzing and marketing that’s clearly attracting your clientele back to you.

The problem is that right now, your team doesn’t understand your vision, and your customers aren’t exactly sure what you do.

I believe that leaders who work hard and have good heart shouldn’t fail because of inefficient, unclear systems and fuzzy marketing systems.

I understand how you feel as a leader - full of heart, passion and work ethic - and don’t feel like your results are showing off.

I spent 5 years as the leader of an organization of over 500 and while we had our struggles, we cracked the code on how to build an environment that was encouraging, successful and together we moved many clients to take action.

Now, while finishing my MBA in Human Resources, and a background in Marketing, Sales & Recruiting, I am passionate about being the tool for organizations to marry their HR & Marketing departments together.

I have received my StoryBrand Certified Guide from Donald Miller’s elite StoryBrand Certified guide program in Nashville, TN in September 2018. I use principles from a NY Times Best Selling author to help share the story of your vision to your team, and to move your clients to action quickly.

What’s a “Fractional Chief Strategy Officer (CSO)”?

CSOs oversee Human Resources & Marketing and exist to be the go between those two worlds.

Most of my Fractional CSO clients choose to retain me for one day a week (32 hours/month) to design, execute and implement clear strategic plans for their marketing and HR departments.

CSOs main job descriptions include (but not limited to):

  • Communicating and implementing a company's strategy internally and externally so that all employees, partners, suppliers, and contractors understand the company-wide strategic plan and how it carries out the company's overall goals.

  • Executing a strategic plan for medium and long term improvements.

  • Ensuring departmental/unit strategic planning projects reflect organizational strategic priorities.

  • Partnering with institutional leadership, special committees, and consultants to support execution of key initiatives.

  • Developing overall strategic marketing plans to execute said goal to clients.

  • Translating strategies into actionable and quantitative plans for teams to follow.

  • Mobilizing and managing teams of individuals charged with executing strategies.

  • Acting as a resource across an organization to increase broad cohesion for strategic plans.

It all boils down to this: I develop the strategy and implement it.

 

Here’s what my clients have to say:

 
Whitney was absolutely fabulous. When I called her, I was attempting to scale in a new market. I had already sunk tons of money into a new website, some lead generators, Facebook ads, etc. I wasn’t getting the results I thought I would. In just 3 sessions she helped me redesign my site, my funnel, my one-liner, and built my SB7 framework for several client types. She’s fast, she’s smart, she gets it DONE. She even helped me build a webinar using the SB7 framework that landed 3 contracts. Results

Whitney has been helpful to me as I have worked to challenge myself to clarify my own brand message. I’m nearly ready to launch a very focused service and I’ve appreciated Whitney’s practical advice and encouraging way.
— Brian, BAR-MS (Kansas)
