LEADERSHIP isn’t the same as MANAGEMENT.  A GROUP of PEOPLE isn’t the same as a TEAM.

                                                  Practical Magic for Achieving “Impossible” Results!

Business results are produced by engaged employees working in high-performing teams. EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT is the result of PURPOSEFUL WORK. Work that has meaning and purpose, not free lunches and other perks, creates employee engagement. What’s more meaningful than making a positive difference to Our World?! What is the future of our Planet Earth? Will governments solve our most pressing problems? Personally, I strongly believe that our best hope for the future of Our World lies in helping global companies solve our problems – profitably, and thus sustainably. That’s why my colleagues and I work with global business teams – to solve important problems that seem impossible, but are merely difficult.

“Successful 21st century global business leaders will be those who commit themselves to a purpose beyond profit.” – Kimberly Wiefling, Founder & President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc.

Kimberly leads intensive behavior-changing workshops (she calls them “workSHOCKS“) for global teams that directly translate into business results.

  • She has a proven track record helping globalizing companies overcome roadblocks and make painful, yet necessary, changes.

  • Her work is especially helpful in post-M&A integration, and with teams that are fragmented and unable to work together effectively.

GLOBAL TEAM ENGAGEMENT: We help “groups of people” rapidly become “true teams” by tackling challenges worthy of them, so that they can achieve what would be impossible for any individual acting alone. And we help these teams accelerate their progress by applying common sense principles proven effective globally in the real business world. Plus, we make it fun. Bonus!

“Kimberly Wiefling is a unique professional resource,  providing priceless services to innovation leaders and innovative organizations. Kimberly is the real deal.  She will not  approach you as an expert, there to bestow knowledge – though she is, and she no doubt will. She will not approach you to tell you what to do – though you will not be misled if you follow her advice.  Instead, Kimberly will respect you as a person of power, as an organization up to the challenges it faces, and help you direct and harness that power to achieve great things. Embrace Kimberly’s  unconventional invitations, and be rewarded with unconventional results. Work with Kimberly and be moved – powered from the inside out.” – Sue Lebeck, Initiatives Director, Silicon Valley Innovation Associates

“If you want advice on almost any topic; if you want to find expertise; if you want a critical and constructive eye; if you want to know someone that is relentlessly optimistic and energetic;  if you want to know someone that is entertaining as well as deeply serious; if you want a friend to bounce ideas off  — then you should get to know Kimberly.  I’ve never known anyone who is so varied in topics she knows about and the people networks in which she operates.  On top of all that, she is a genuinely nice and authentic person.” – Gerald R. Wagner, PhD, Presidents Office, Director Institute for Wellbeing Management, Bellevue University, Gallup Senior Scientist
