What others say about working with me…

"The simplest of questions goes unanswered so often.  How can I help you?  How can I (as a project manager) help you (my colleague)? Of course, job titles are given.  However, roles in the office are learnt, or developed, by the individuals that work there, through their own actions and the responses of others.  
"Our discussion has shed light on this question; one that I had understood, but not articulated. Now that I understand, I can ask my superiors, those working on my projects, and project stakeholders directly, and use the answer to guide my efforts to deliver projects swiftly and effectively." Derek B., Project Manager

“Shauna's an excellent coach, in the true sense - she challenges teams to think critically, problem solve, and experiment to achieve desired outcomes. She's one of the few people I've encountered, who has the courage to consistently give open and honest feedback to people at all levels, but always with diplomacy, respect, and team improvement at the core of her feedback.

“In particular, Shauna excels at what we called, ‘ruthless prioritization’. She's awesome at recommending, and getting agreement, on what the top priority is, and then keeping the team laser focused on that.” Jennifer M., Sr. Manager, Enterprise Project Management

“Shauna is an asset to any team. She cares and does what's best for the team. She's highly productive as an individual contributor due to her broad skills, creativity, and attention to detail and she's also a good leader due to her big picture thinking, and strong organization and communication skills. She's a great coach and advisor… Shauna makes any team better.” David F., Director, Engineering
