christina granahan
Consultant Partner

As a social worker and coach, every single question I ask is in service of the client’s agenda – moving them forward into action while building their awareness around what motivates them, what holds them back, and what choices they make in their perceptions and assumptions about the people and situations around them. In leadership and management, people come to me who are looking for skills around providing feedback – either in the day to day or in performance reviews – as well as how to manage up, and how to increase skills around lateral leadership.
