An unparalleled thought partner in sorting through organizational and strategic issues
Betsy has a unique ability to be objective and intuitive at the same time. She can assess a situation, quickly identify the “brutal facts,” and then leverage her perceptiveness to recommend how you can best leverage your skills and abilities to resolve the situation. Betsy does not know the meaning of “one-size-fits-all,” yet is able to translate universal concepts to very specific solutions for the challenges you might be facing. She influenced me to use my existing skills more effectively, making me a better leader, and was an unparalleled thought partner to me in sorting through organizational and strategic issues.

Worked alongside the project team to ensure that we met our goals
It's been a pleasure working with Betsy. She is a true professional and business partner. Betsy took the time to get to know the organization and the players so that she could make custom recommendations - there was never a cookie-cutter approach in any of her work with us. Betsy was willing to roll up her sleeves and work alongside the project team to ensure that we met our goals. I would highly recommend her work and her firm.

Quickly connects the dots ... gets key stakeholders on the same page
Betsy is a top-notch Organization Development (OD) practitioner and executive coach. She can quickly connect the dots regarding what’s needed, get key stakeholders on the same page, and drive desired outcomes. Betsy also quickly establishes rapport, has a keen sense of the individual in the context of their organization, and brings the right balance of intuition and wisdom that enables her clients to achieve their objectives. Betsy demonstrates a passion for her work, has depth of proven experience, and brings the human element along with a smile to any project. For these reasons, and more, I recommend Betsy to any organization that has high standards, and is committed to both "results" and "how" those results are achieved.

My practice has grown
As the director of a small start-up mental health counseling practice, I initially had my sights set pretty low. I was happy if I could get a couch in the room, make sure the lights worked, and pray for clients to come. After engaging Betsy for leadership coaching, I could see and overcome my obstacles to growth and success; capitalize on my strengths and address my weaknesses; and dream bigger dreams. She has a gift for simultaneously digging down to find root causes and looking up-and-outward toward a vision of success that she helped me crystallize. My practice has grown to include two other full-time practitioners and two locations. But even more important that sheer volume of business, I have the tools to make sure that I am getting the right clients for me. I am more than just busy; I am thriving. And I believe that Betsy is a major reason for my success.

I am now getting bigger contracts that take less time
I had a solid free-lance graphic design and web development business before I met Betsy. I had about as much work as I could handle, and I was proud of the quality of my customer service and the work products that I delivered. But Betsy really revolutionized how I conceptualized business delivery. She recognized that I am not a person who is going to execute a high-powered marketing strategy that involves directly soliciting new work. And she knew that I wanted to remain a sole-practitioner business, so there are limits on how much I wanted to grow. Within those parameters, she helped me to re-envision what I do and how I do it. I am now offering higher-end services that I formerly thought were only for bigger firms. Paradoxically, Betsy helped me not to be afraid to give-away some of my expertise, while at the same time encouraging me to charge more for my specialized work, more fully honoring my quality, skills, and responsiveness. I am now getting bigger contracts that take less time than some of the work that I used to do with a lot less reward. If you want to move from good to great, I would recommend Betsy as an organizational development consultant and think-partner.

Truly pivotal in my life and ministry
Spending this time with Betsy has been the most important thing I have done the last 15 years. I believe it has been truly pivotal in my life and ministry. She has helped me grasp the connections among what God has led me through, how he has made me and what lies ahead. She has also spoken with needed truth and compassion to my false beliefs and idols.

A great taking off point for a new business or any new career or personal direction
Betsy [Jordyn] is a seasoned consultant, adept at bringing vision, clarity and order to a large-scale change process so that everyone involved can see their role in the larger picture. At the same time, she is a skillful coach, listening with a discerning ear and helping the individual tease out the most crucial pieces of information. In my work with Betsy on “branding” my business, Full Color Living, I relied on her to hear my story and reflect it back to me with clarifying questions, using her unique talent for seeing the patterns. Betsy has a mind that takes in a jumble of information and from it crafts a clear, rational, purposeful, inspired summary – a great taking off point for a new business or any new career or personal direction. So I thank her for that, and also for the sheer pleasure of doing the work together.
