Betsy Jordyn – Organizational “Potentiator” & Strategic Problem Solver
Having served in such behemoth companies as Walt Disney World, as well as many smaller concerns, Betsy Jordyn is known for her ability to quickly identify root issues and leverage points to map out the most efficient path to success.
An organizational “potentiator” and strategic problem solver, Betsy Jordyn is viewed by her growth-oriented, executive and senior leader clients as the ultimate “think partner.” She is known for her ability to rapidly cut through the clutter of circumstances and pinpoint root issues. Focusing on the leverage points, she then determines the best strategies and designs customized solutions to achieve maximum performance and efficiency.
Betsy’s unique talent for accurately assessing key issues combined with her extensive experience in leadership, strategy, organization redesign, inter-departmental coordination, and executive team development has helped numerous organizations achieve some of their biggest goals and overcome their most daunting challenges.
In her post as a Senior Organizational Development Consultant for Walt Disney World, Betsy’s work included a broad range of initiatives as well as mentoring 20 other in-house consultants. Three of her most high profile assignments with Disney World included:
Working with Operations to completely redefine the Guest/Cast and Cast/Leader experience. This work replaced Disney World’s long-held “7 Service Guidelines.”
Participating as a core team member in the re-branding of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. This involved the successful shifting of the public’s perception of Animal Kingdom as a half-day, Jack Hanna like zoo to a traditional Disney theme park that is “natazoo.” Park attendance and guest return visits dramatically improved.
Spearheaded the organizational redesign of an under-performing business unit. The results from this initiative exceeded expectations and continues to serve as a model program within Walt Disney World.
Betsy’s work has accelerated the potential of her Fortune 100 clients such as Walt Disney World and a large non-profit organization with over 3,300 full-time staff members. However, her solutions and strategies are completely scalable as she has achieved similarly successful outcomes with a broad spectrum of businesses in various sizes and business sectors.

By generating greater achievement and efficiency at work, Betsy and her clients are able to live a more balanced and integrated life that encompasses family, friends, time for personal and spiritual development and opportunities to give back to local communities.
