Before we partnered with Lauren and Golden Key Partnership, we were having trouble finding competent staff. The biggest frustration we had was feeling like we were at a dead end or worse a never ending carousel of employee turnover.
We knew we needed outside expert help when my business partner and I had just hired a new staff person a few weeks before and it was already not going well so we were so happy to have found and engaged Lauren.
The initial meeting was very detailed and felt like she had a different approach to solving problems of this nature and could really help us.
It was during the discovery phase when Lauren had a chance to interview our staff and the revelations she came back to us with that it really hit me how valuable and different her consulting is.
We are still actively hiring and solving our personnel pain but I know our work with Lauren made a tremendous difference because we have a new staff person and it is starting off extremely well. Not just from a competency standpoint on their end, but from a coaching and teaming aspect on our end.
My biggest takeaways and outcomes of our work with Lauren are:
- One, looking at ourselves and how we can contribute to the problem of finding and coaching the right team members.
- Two, helping us discern what it is we are actually looking for and how to go out and get them.
What I liked most about working with Lauren was that she really stayed with us through the entire process. We had to take a break due to some major business changes we made during our agreement time period, but Lauren kept us on track with an excellent level of communication and feedback.
Working with Lauren was a wonderful and worthwhile experience that I would recommend to any business leader looking to improve not only their business and teams, but also themselves.
