People Operations

Need help navigating your human resources and staffing? Not sure who you need to hire, or how to hire them, or how to manage them once you do?

Probably the most prevalent problem I see new entrepreneurs and young companies making is neglecting or shortchanging the people side of their business. I’m talking about people management, human resources, and organizational development. If you are building a company beyond 5-10 employees, you NEED to be thinking about this… much much earlier than you think. Yes, that early. No, that’s not too early. Yes, I can help!

I offer the following people operations coaching services to help you identify & hire your personnel needs, onboard them, manage them, and nurture them in the most productive, inclusive, and healthy way possible.

Organizational Development

I will guide you and your organization’s people managers/HR team (if any) through assessing your human resources needs and developing a plan to address those – whether that be hiring more help, reorganizing or retaining your current staff, training your people managers, navigating compensation or benefits, developing employee programs, addressing performance issues, and/or resolving personnel conflicts.

People Management Training

I will guide you and your organization’s other people managers (if any) through fun and forthright training on the essential leadership soft skills that are too often undervalued and under-developed – such as emotional intelligence, time management, goal setting, creative thinking, effective communication, active listening, critical conversations, conflict resolution, and (perhaps most importantly) self awareness.

I’m not gonna sugarcoat it, because that would do you a disservice. You cannot ignore this side of your business. It will make or break your company. I’ve seen it happen. My approach is consequently quite blunt and no-nonsense, while also highly communicative and compassionate, employing my 10+ years of experience in business operations, people management, executive coaching, and human resources to empower you and your employees… and you’re gonna like it.

“Rebecca exceeded expectations in the Human Resources area. This was a huge gap in our business and she was able to fill it quickly with grace and positive energy. She took a very detrimental situation and re-invigorated the team with trust and hope back into the company.

Rebecca is incredibly reliable and trustworthy that the team can go to her to speak their truths. She has been a confidante to employees and acted as our HR in a short amount of time.

Rebecca’s ability to empathize and communicate situations to me has been very crucial at this stage in the company. I know I can count on Rebecca to be a voice of reason for the company and for our employees.”
