As a facilitator, Ramona establishes an interactive and safe environment that allows everyone to share their thoughts and ideas. She is an active listener who ensures that everyone is heard. She is unafraid of challenging conversations and has successfully facilitated critical and sometimes challenging board, staff, and community discussions.
Ramona works with staffs and teams to strengthen trust and develop clear and respectful communication. Building trust bolsters staff efficiency, effectiveness, and desire to support each other.
We engaged Ramona to help us begin a new series of sensitive community conversations. She was instrumental in helping us think through the approach and agenda for the meetings based on our objectives and the people involved. She did an excellent job talking with participants in advance to develop a thoughtful snapshot of the communities with whom we are working. She then skillfully and artfully facilitated the discussions, bringing out a wide variety of perspectives, allowing people to talk when they needed to, while also keeping the conversation moving forward in a constructive direction.
