Organizational Effectiveness Consulting
We are committed to a systems approach to organizational effectiveness. Learning does not stick and change does not take hold unless there is a strategic, integrated, and consistent system that reinforces the change and learning. At Leadership-Link, we have consulted with clients to build success profiles for individual positions, validated competency models for development and assessment, performance management systems and tools, effective hiring processes, professional interview practices, on-boarding programs, performance dashboards, and organization re-design. Our goal is to view the system, as it relates to the company’s mission and vision, core values, and project goals.
If you approach your organization as a system, your whole will be greater than the parts.
Leadership-Link Team Meeting Facilitation
There are times in the cycle of team development that require a full team or the leadership of a team to go ‘off the grid’, out of the regular work cycle to re-group, re-energize, and re-establish team alignment. To allow full team participation in the content and purpose of the meeting an outside facilitator can bring great value to the process.
We have facilitated team offsite meetings in a variety of contexts and with varied goals in mind. See below for a sampling of our work to-date knowing that we can customize any session for your full team or leadership team!
Team and Team Leader coaching can be valuable before, during and after any team meeting. Review a sample list of Team Off sites.

"Eileen Habelow has been a tremendous business partner and consultant to my company over the past few years. I have witnessed first-hand her professionalism and ability to steer managers and executives towards one common goal. She has very astute business instincts and is strong in the area of design, development and implementation of training programs. She is a trusted business partner and someone I will continue to work with for many years to come."
Dr. Habelow is one of the best conceptual thinkers I've experienced across my career. She understands the why, the how, and the now. CHROs looking for excellent academic credentials coupled with superior practicality should be on Dr. Habelow's client list.
“In choosing Leadership-Link, we found an amazing partner who took the time to understand our needs and our challenges. The end product was incredibly professional, thorough, well-organized, and very well received. Leadership-Link was truly an extension of our Human Resources Department!”
In today's market, it's rare to find an established consultant who has a firm grasp of both the academic and applicable. Maybe because of her experience as a practitioner or maybe because of her desire to drive bottom-line results, Dr. Habelow is comfortable toggling between the strategy and the tactics in real-time. Every CHRO needs to be surrounded by people who can think and people who can execute. Dr. Habelow can do both.
"Eileen was able to deploy the ‘speed of trust’ tool to my local organization and then followed up by assisting me in the facilitation and use of this tool throughout my global function. More importantly, Eileen helped the team through a challenging transition in leadership structure and bring clarity to new roles and responsibilities and rules of engagement. As a facilitator for our leadership team, Eileen was able to ask the tough questions and push boundaries without any danger of being perceived as having a personal agenda."
"Eileen is a rock star! She is truly one of the most talented and creative training professionals that I have had the pleasure to work with. Spend five minutes in a brainstorming session with her and you will see what I mean. Her passion for people and learning is evident in everything she does. Eileen knows how to achieve measurable results through innovative training strategies. It’s too bad we can’t clone her because we need more talent like hers to help organizations achieve better results through talent development solutions."
"It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Eileen. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Eileen on multiple leadership and training projects over 6 years. To say that she “gets it” is an understatement. She is an outstanding coach who brings a great depth of knowledge and experience to help leaders at all levels grow to reach their full potential."
"Eileen is masterful in her ability to tease out issues, step back to allow the team to come to resolution, and step in only when needed. She is flexible and able to adapt her agenda during the meeting in order to ensure the important conversations are able to take place. We left our leadership offsite with a greater understanding of our joint purpose, a clear decision-making model and joint commitments to support our new structure."
"Our group uses Leadership-Link quite often for team effectiveness. We find that they use their depth of knowledge to customize a workshop that best fits the situation. Eileen’s facilitation skills are superb, holding individuals and teams accountable for their work and thoughts. When we have a need, Leadership-Link is the first call we make."
