SAA Network Consultant of the Month
March 2008

Sharon Armstrong and Associates

We are in a new era. The time when progress came through fragmented, disjointed activity is over; what is called for now is a new focus on connection and integration.

With 25 years of global experience, MICHAEL CISZEWSKI has learned a great deal about what it takes to move individuals and groups into a much more productive, integrated way of working. To develop leadership capabilities and find solutions to their toughest challenges.

He has helped clients combine business units; turn complexity into a competitive advantage; manage all types of change; and shift from a reactive, transactional way of operating to one that is more client-centered and partnership-oriented.

At the heart of this work is discovering connections — talking and thinking together to innovate and create breakthroughs.

Michael brings his unique background and approach to team development so that his clients can build their own paths to the futures they envision. Through each interaction he is seeking to:

1. Create clarity: vision, purpose, direction, goals, roles, relationships, outcomes, results.
2. Increase commitment: to results, to the organization, to one another.
3. Improve communication: by enhancing trust, respect, feedback.

To hire Michael to help your company, contact Sharon Armstrong and Associates.
