Rosanna von Sacken

I am the President and founder of my management consulting company. I have been working with groups, organizations and communities in the public, private and non-profit sectors for over 20 years.

Certified as a Professional Facilitator (CPF) through the International Association of Facilitators (IAF), my primary work is group process design and facilitation, which compliment wonderfully with my coaching and consulting work. I am also a visual thinker and communicator, incorporating graphics into my work where I can. I am people-centric, outcomes and results-oriented, and I bring an engaging and interactive approach to my work, whether it is leadership / team development, strategic visioning, courageous conversations, action planning or multi-stakeholders engagement, personal coaching or consulting.

I am a FIRO-Element B Certified Practitioner. FIRO Element B is a powerful instrument that can help clients learn about and better understand behaviours based on what we do and get in the areas of Inclusion, Control and Openness. Better understanding of this human dynamics can be part of your own leadership, team and/or personal assessment, growth and development.

I work with my clients to custom design interactive processes to engage the participants, empowering them to co-create solutions, to tap into their collective wisdom, experiences and knowledge, and gain commitment and agreement for future actions.
