Consider these examples of our track record

• Aimee Bernstein consulted and coached the Sr.V.P. of R&D/QA of a world-class beauty company assisting him in developing an emotionally intelligent, collaborative senior leadership team which then rolled out the collaborative approach throughout their division. This resulted in sixteen innovations currently in development, a leap in employee engagement and accountability, and a culture based on shared ownership for change in which people said they were working harder than ever but are having more fun.

• Our collaboration work with trauma surgeons and E.R. doctors helped them save their trauma center. It is now considered one of the best in Florida.

• We facilitated the development of a shared vision and productive ways of working between management and union of a county’s emergency services division that produced a 90% reduction in grievances and the easiest negotiations they had experienced in years.

Testimonials:

• “As consultants to the Broward County Executive Leadership Team, Open Mind Adventures™ has assisted us in creating a new vision of our group as a community which shares such values as authentic communication, caring and creativity. As individual coaches to members of our team and as facilitators/trainers, they have been focused on helping us make our vision a daily working reality. Although we are new to this journey towards community, I have already seen such results as an increase in collaboration among members, a heightened sense of caring for each other and the beginnings of a new level of authentic communication within the group.”
A.G. Johnson Jr., Area President of a National Bank

• “For reorganization within the Emergency Services Division to be successful, long-standing issues of trust, communication and collaboration needed to be resolved. Ms. Bernstein and her partner were extremely effective in working with the many diverse personalities and agendas to bring about a better understanding and a more cooperative effort. As a result of this coaching and team building intervention, grievances were substantially reduced, tensions were lessened during contract negotiations and management and union worked collaboratively on a shared vision. I can’t say enough about Ms. Bernstein and the good work she and her partner have done.”
