RiverRhee Consulting 1 year old in July!


On 1st July 2010, RiverRhee Consulting will be 1 year old. For those who have taken an interest in our work, here is a quick recap of our goals and achievements, writes Elisabeth Goodman.

RiverRhee Consulting's central focus is on enhancing team effectiveness. We do this by using process improvement, knowledge management and change management methodologies, and through a combination of 1:1 guidance, workshops, training, and occasional 'hands-on' project and change management support.

Our emphasis is on taking a flexible, tailored approach to meeting our clients' needs, and on helping them to develop their internal capabilities so that they can continue to improve the way they work after our engagement is complete. We also like to help our clients through the whole process of diagnosis, solution development, implementation, and follow-up to ensure that the anticipated benefits have been realised.

You can read more about our way of working on our recently launched website: http://www.riverrhee.com

Our mix of clients reflects the 3 niche 'markets' that we have been targeting:

Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Life Science. We've been working with a CRO in France to develop their customer relationship programme, and their operational efficiency. This has also been a tremendous opportunity to exercise Elisabeth Goodman's fluency in French. Elisabeth Goodman has also been chairing conferences, presenting and preparing presentations on customer surveys and business process improvement with IQPC and the DIA.

Library and Information Services. We've been scheduling and delivering courses relating to change management and process improvement through TFPL and UKeIG. Elisabeth is also the programme events manager for NetIKX and has chaired and spoken at several of their events.

Businesses in Cambs / Herts. RiverRhee Consulting is based on the Cambs / Herts border, and it has been very satisfying to help owners of other SMEs, through 1:1 tutorials and network seminars to use social media such as LinkedIn for their personal and business development.
We have been actively developing various workshop offerings. Some of these have already been mentioned above. John Riddell has been leading the development of one of these: 'Achieving team goals - an integrated framework'.

RiverRhee Consulting associates are active members of a number of networks, and also work as associates with other organisations, details of which can also be found on our website: http://www.riverrhee.com. Elisabeth is currently working with Pelican Coaching & Development (http://www.pelicancoaching.com/) on a client assignment, and on a book for personal effectiveness. She is also helping to form The Creation Company (http://www.thecreationcompany.com/) , a business consultancy for the 21st Century!

Finally, we are active users of social media, so do take a look at our profiles:

When I started RiverRhee I knew that I wanted to make a difference to individuals, managers and teams in the workplace. I thought then it was about sharing the principles, methodologies and tools that would enable them to do their best thinking.

I soon realised that it’s all about people too: if we can understand ourselves and others better, we can learn to communicate and interact with each other better, be more productive and deal with change more effectively.

Both of the above are still part of the mix, but my focus now is on the inner brilliance that is within each of us: how we can choose and learn to express that more vividly and consistently in our work and in our everyday life. I look forward to exploring these three levels with you.
