Through listening and learning from the stories of a diverse range of individuals, I harness the experiences of many to directly support innovation, improvement and cutting edge action in the nonprofit, education and philanthropic sectors. For more information about consulting engagements and my Continuous Improvement Approach, visit www.michelemreiner.com.
For over 25 years, I have been a manager, a leader, consultant and coach in partnership with a wide range of organizations and individuals.
I spend my time maximizing the capacity of purpose-driven executives, organizations and individuals, helping to solve problems and bring visions to life. My passions are organizational and personal pivot points, innovative initiatives and plain old management.
Combining compassion, strategic thinking and outcome driven action, I help people reach their goals faster, steward resources effectively and love what they do.
