Testimonials

Here’s what others are saying about Sage Action Consulting:

After attending What’s Your MPG?,  I have been more aware of my own frustration and burnout as a professional in the human services field. I liked that the training included interactive activities and discussion to engage the audience and tips and resources to take away.  I would recommend What’s Your MPG? to anyone in the human services field (supervisors, direct care staff, and clerical staff) to help them understand the importance of mindfulness and self-care.

We started working with Denina nearly 10 years ago on one project, but have continued year after year because of the quality of her work and passion for what she does. She is committed to our community and has put in the time and effort to learn about key stakeholders and how we do things here. Denina takes the time to form relationships, so it does not feel like an outsider coming in. We always have peace of mind when we give her a project that she will give it 100%, and the end product will be what we want…that is why we recommend her to others.

As the chair of Holy Family Child Care, I have attended several strategic planning sessions facilitated by Denina. She is professional and knowledgeable with a great personality to engage the room. She is skilled at knowing how to work with a group of individuals and keep them focused on the task at hand so they come to the most favorable outcome. Our meetings with Denina have helped our organization greatly to get a better understanding of our goals, our mission, problem areas to work on, and the positives to embrace and continue growing. I highly recommend Denina and hope that I will have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.

I have been delighted to work with Denina. She is easy to work with and full of many good ideas. Best of all, she organizes meetings and facilitates them with warmth, but also with helpful ground rules that let differing perspectives be heard. She comes to meetings prepared and with lots of tools to help them run well, but she is willing to change her plans as needed depending upon the circumstances of a given meeting. In short, I would highly recommend her. Denina will help your project move from “words to action.”

Denina has been indispensible in the launch of my yoga service and wellness consulting organization. She connected me with the people with whom I needed to collaborate and focused her insight and strategic skills on helping me to determine the best way to structure and promote my organization.

Working with Denina on projects takes what originally seem like insurmountable tasks to me to a finished project that is of high quality and successful. Her community engagement, group development and group facilitation skills have not only assisted me in successfully completing my work responsibilities, but provide a sense of relief and confidence because I know Denina is right there by my side moving the process along with her high level of energy, never-ending positive attitude, and fun personality! I value our relationship and look forward to working together on many projects in the future.

Denina consistently leads groups through dynamic change with an orderly style. She is approachable and clear-minded, listening to the information from group members and reframing to allow forward motion. As a project leader, she provides the framework so team members can focus on content. It has been a pleasure working alongside Denina throughout several important projects.

Denina is a capable and skillful organizer. Her wise guidance and encouragement over a two-year period brought unconnected community leaders together to establish a first of its kind mentoring group for our at-risk youth…outstanding to work with.

Denina helped our agency streamline the service delivery system. This major project required a full analysis of the way we do business, and I asked Denina to create a model that I could use moving forward. She jumped in with both feet, established fantastic relationships with my staff, immediately got to the heart of the matter and pulled the best out of my staff. She kept them focused to project completion, and we now have a roadmap that we use to continue to improve our business processes and services to clients. Denina was a great resource!
