MANDO Consulting, Anna Zaltz specifically, exceeded expectations in delivering the entire package. MANDO Consulting was contracted to deliver a leadership team transformation from dysfunctional to an energized unit focused on success. The expectation was to walk away with a new business Vision, Mission and guiding principles that take us to another level. We also included in the retreat a game changing project initiative that needed direction, actions and sponsorship. Our team over delivered on our goals, we are a much better leadership team, and the Vision and Mission have been deployed across the entire enterprise. All aspects of the retreat were managed by MANDO Consulting in a timely, professional manner and with a focused purpose. I would not hesitate to deploy Anna and MANDO Consulting on future initiatives.
President, Perfecseal Inc.
“I had learned about Anna’s abilities from one of my colleagues and did not believe she was as good as the colleague suggested. But she was! We needed a top-notch instructional designer to help with our management curriculum at the time. Anna was able to utilize her talents on our behalf in some critical areas. First, her consulting skills were spot-on. She knew when to partner, when to challenge our thinking, and which key questions needed asking. Secondly, she has great team skills. She’s not the kind of outside partner who comes in as the outside expert without consideration of the internal expertise. Instead, she truly partnered with us and leveraged what we had. Finally, Anna’s design ability was clear. She organized disparate information into meaningful chunks and came up with a great product. She required very little hand-holding, and at the same time kept us informed. I will definitely use her for other engagements going forward.

“Anna has a unique ability to quickly identify organizational opportunities, establish trust and deliver simplistic, customized and impactful solutions. Partnering with our executive leader, we engaged Anna to create a detailed discovery process to enable the transformation of culture and provide insight to improve team dynamics. Anna had positive interactions with our all leadership team members in a one-on-one setting and exceeded expectations in the quality of the deliverable. Anna brings a high-level of expertise along with a personal touch that is unique and extremely effective. I look forward to partnering with Anna again for future needs!
Director Human Resources, Kellogg Company
“A friend of mine used to say, “The job isn’t hard, but the people will kill you.” Said another way, managing teams — and their expectations — is one of the hardest parts of being a leader. Knowing what motivates people; how they communicate and interact; and what their strengths are is the key to a higher level of performance. I’ve worked with MANDO Consulting to dig into those core issues with teams. Always insightful and creative, MANDO/Anna makes team building and performance learning stick.
Sr. Director Corporate Communications , McDonald’s
“We partnered with MANDO Consulting to design a two-day workshop that enabled our senior managers to build capability in the ares of leadership, communication and conflict management skills within the context of a rapidly changing industry (media and advertising). The multitude of tools highlighted in the session combined with the robust discussions that tackled critical and common challenges across our company, enabled our managers to drive higher levels of engagement and team cohesiveness, which ultimately drives superior client innovation and growth for SMG. Anna and her team were highly professional, thoughtful and flexible- often anticipating our needs and providing recommendations and ideas that fit the unique needs of our organization and the industry as a whole.
VP Talent Management , StarCom MediaVest (SMG)
“Anna created a customized design for our President’s annual strategic planning meeting, translating needs into creative working solutions. She identified opportunities to maximize our off-site and generated activities that drove results. Our leadership team left feeling accomplished and that our outcomes were well worth the three day investment. We have seen a sustained change in our operating style and communication as a result of the meeting Anna facilitated.
