“The departments of education and public health were funded to work together on school health but efforts had stalled due to differences in expectations and agency cultures. Attempts to form a single team met with substantial resistance, and the project’s co-directors, of which I was one, had not formed a trusting, constructive professional relationship. OPI provided helpful guidance to the co-directors on improving their relationship, facilitated team building among the two agency staffs, and guided development of an infrastructure that will serve the project in coming years. The see volume of work that has been completed since OPI was engaged has been phenomenal.”

“OPI was instrumental in getting us all on the same sheet of music about our future direction. Our vision is now clear along with the practical next steps for implementing new approaches (i.e. contracts with students, staff and parents regarding the school’s approach for encouraging learning). Their ability to help all stakeholders think as a system was instrumental in our success.”

“The consultants model a work ethic and appreciation of human-ness that leaves participants with a greater level of understanding of themselves and their specific environment. They are not only insightful, but are able to get the group to the heart of the matter. They have provided the best facilitation I have ever had the pleasure to experience.”

“OPI has facilitated our work at the multi-state, state and substate level. The aspect of her work that I appreciate most is her working knowledge of systems development from the policy level to the level of application. Such breadth is invaluable in designing systems that can support sustained implementation of State policy and direction. OPI brings the commitment to ‘co-creation’ that invites the integration of perspectives throughout the system in systems development. OPI is able to capture the vision and passion within an organization and to guide a process to align the infrastructure in support of that vision.”

“OPI helped us dramatically improve our Quality Improvement Program. Stephanie has been instrumental in organizing and facilitating our annual strategic planning sessions. She has oriented, trained and facilitated various teams throughout the organization. Her efforts resulted in dramatic process improvements in multiple clinical and administrative areas. I strongly recommend her for consulting work in other organizations.”

“The Colorado Prevention Leadership Council consists of representatives from six state agencies, two universities and various partners, and was created through state legislation to promote coordinated planning, implementation, and evaluation of quality prevention, intervention and treatment services for children, youth, and families at the state and local level. The PLC promotes statewide policies for advancing prevention efforts throughout Colorado. OPI has been instrumental in helping us achieve these outcomes: prevention core competencies; a coordinated system for state capacity development; articulation of philosophy for a diverse group of state partners; and surfacing new and innovative ideas.”

“It’s been a great learning experience to participate in the planning meetings for the Austin Healthy Adolescent Initiative. I admire how Stephanie led us through a process that was as playful and personal, as it was goal directed and productive. Perhaps most of all she helped establish an open and trusting environment where community members and organizations could come together, share their views and develop an inclusive plan. When we started out, I found myself feeling disoriented by the openness of the process and when we completed the first draft of the strategic plan only a few meetings later I was astonished at the clarity of our collective vision for the community and how we want to engage and serve youth. She taught us how to open ourselves up to possibilities and deliberately refrain from setting pre-defined goals in the beginning. I think it was a very successful journey for all participants and it led us to define three clear goals to guide our work together for the next years. I appreciate Omega Point’s leadership and for providing this learning opportunity to us.”
