"Research shows a direct link between organizational people strategy and superior financial performance"


Employee Engagement

A significant amount of research shows a direct link between organizational people strategy and superior financial performance. Paying attention to the heart and soul of your people will drive profitability, increase employee retention, and maximize client satisfaction.


Sandbar Coaching and Consulting works with clients to design engagement surveys and implement action plans based on results.


Strategic and Tactical Planning

Organizational health requires paying careful attention to all aspects of the business — including people practices, process improvements, and client relationship management. Using a variety of tools, including scorecards, SWOT analysis, and SMART goal methodology, Margot Ross-Graham can help you prepare for the future while you also manage present-day realities.


Integration Activities

Don’t forget about the people while managing the numbers! Seventy per cent of mergers and acquisitions fail because organizations didn’t pay enough attention to the people aspect of their business. Margot will work closely with your executive team to develop a strategy focused on people retention, onboarding, alignment of values and practices, and change and transition.
