Sherry Parsley’s depth of experience working with teams was a great asset to us while we developed our new strategic plan. She is approachable and accessible and created a casual and calm environment that allowed our team to discuss the issues and draw everything out. Sherry provided the guidance our organization needed to gain a fresh perspective and forge ahead with an actionable plan.
Our organization recruited Sherry Parsley to assist in the full development of a first-time strategic plan with a very tight timeline for delivery. Sherry was found to be informed, efficient and effective in her work. As a very skilled professional, her talents include her ability to be attuned, engaged, accepting and inclusive. No one was left behind as she led us towards a successful outcome.
I recommend turning to The Osborne Group as this is the calibre of professional we have consistently secured from their team.
Sherry Parsley facilitated a senior management retreat for OCAPDD in late September. Sherry’s expertise in this role was exemplary. Feedback from the team was overwhelmingly positive about her leadership in the role, and her assistance with our discussions. As the Executive Director of the team, I truly appreciated Sherry’s valuable personal commentary & professional insights that she inserted into our deliberations at just the right times.
