Even the most talented groups can get tangled up in their work.  


Never fear.

Next Gear will calmly and confidently focus on the group's process, so the group can focus on the content of the challenge.  A skilled Process Consultant honors the group's objectives, dynamics, and requirements, and guides them down an efficient, constructive path for problem solving, creating or decision making.  The participants are free to think.  And act.

"Kristi is a fearless facilitator.  We had a room full of intelligent, competitive people, and she kept us on track.  We never would have gotten through this process without her 'laying down the track' in front of our speeding train!  It was like magic!"

"I've got a room full of powerful people... who can't seem to get anything done. We need someone to herd us and help us get over the finish line."​​
