Spiritual Advising: Approach

Given the personal and relational nature of our service areas, I employ a partnership approach when consulting. This approach recognizes that my content expertise only becomes meaningful when it is tailored to a client’s unique context and situation. Through establishing trust and open communication, the partnership facilitates a depth problem solving that creates truly relevant, lasting solutions for businesses and organizations.

After a particular focus area is chosen, we will determine the appropriate amount of education and assessment, including the association of any assessments with a client’s key metrics. The knowledge that comes from the education and assessment phases determines the full scope of the project.

In contrast to many consultants, my preference is to remain involved during the implementation phase. During this time, I encourage systems thinking and the cultivation of shared meaning, while assisting leaders as they retain responsibility for the implementation. If desired, projects conclude with follow-up assessments and tracking their association with the key metrics.

Prior participation in Spiritual Coaching or Workplace Guidance is recommended.

Testimonials

“I was a skeptic; I was not sure that she would connect with us or our issues. I must say, she is one of the most talented individuals I have ever worked with. She was approachable, warm and genuine, and she was always in control of the group.

She has been an incredible asset to this organization.” – J. M.

“Rhonda devoted a great deal of time, effort, persistence, and professional insight to helping the team strive toward its goals. She has always been very upbeat, willing to listen to criticism or suggestions, and has been very conscious of keeping all team members involved. Her analytical skills and ability to link her academic training to our “real-world” problems have made her uniquely qualified to move the team forward.

She has provided tireless leadership and has been an inspiration to others.” – F. S.

“With Rhonda’s consultation, staff identified creative and successful strategies for interrupting inappropriate conflict responses. They gained understanding of why their new strategies were successful and they learned to generalize and employ these strategies in their everyday work.

Her consultation services freed staff from the bonds of resignation and hopelessness and allowed them to enjoy and find fulfillment in their work.” – J. B.
