Testimonials


Innovation

“Traversa has been a trusted partner for years now for assessments, executive development and organizational strategy. We simply do not hire executive talent without their input. What differentiates them is they are excellent listeners that balances genuine caring for our success with the ability to say anything, no matter if it is easy to hear. Their coaching has also been critical for the development of our high potential managers.

“We engaged Sally Jamara to assist in the planning and implementation of a new organizational structure.  She was fabulous in helping  our leadership group develop into a  real team, facilitating our planning discussions, keeping us on task and timeline, providing excellent feedback, and serving as support.  She is so skilled in choosing just the right tool or discussion topic, planning communications with the broader community, and acting as a sounding board. I could not recommend her more highly. She is the best.”

“When we decided to have our company take the CliC Innovation Culture Assessment we were expecting it to just validate our company’s culture was very supportive of innovation.  Our results supported our belief, but the working exercises where our employees developed areas for improvement addressing our two largest most pressing problems was nothing more than amazing.  We now have 21 actionable items to take our company to the next level of innovation and productivity.  Now that’s ROI and money well spent! Thanks Dr. Jamara.”

“When I participated in the CliC assessment, I was hesitant to dedicate my companies time to evaluate our Innovation level.  With the summer months now upon us, business can be a bit leaner and we needed to push harder to drive new business development forward.  The last thing I felt we needed was to throw away the better part of a day with our entire team.

Boy was I wrong….Pat and I were both pleasantly surprised to sit back and gain a 360 overall view on our teams strengths and ideas.  There were several interesting hand’s on exercises that showcased who should also be involved in driving new business development forward. We had a brainstorming session that enabled us to quickly establish a fresh, new, strategic approach and execution plan.”

“The CliC Innovation Assessment has been a transformative tool in helping our team understand innovation potential across our organization. Before CliC, I had not experienced such accurate and consistent results from an objective assessment that also provided a high degree of nuance, direction, and useful recommendations. Sally Jamara’s insight on the various types of innovation capabilities is a key differentiator. It has encouraged us to be more holistic and inclusive in our approach to maximizing our people’s innovation potential – with the goal of translating it into business success.”

“I recently used the CliC Innovation Assessment and Tools with our team. It was a fantastic learning experience. We learned about our individual innovation capabilities and experienced ways to enhance our innovation skills. We also had a breakthrough with our team dynamics. The meeting was interactive and everyone got engaged and learned a lot. It was both thought provoking and very constructive. I loved how the exercises were tailored to our needs and work.  We not only learned the concepts but how to apply them directly. The ROI for our team was exceptional.”

“The CliC Innovation process provided an opportunity to think beyond where we are now, our current challenges. We spent four years developing new tools. Now we are thinking outside our financial services industry. I believe we generated the type of ideas and excitement that will provide us breakthrough results. The energy, positive morale and drive for change has made the process worthwhile. It has changed our thinking and we will continue to develop a culture striving for innovation. It has been a great experience for us. I would highly recommend it to others.”
