Consulting

Fostering creative partnerships to drive monumental success.


Getting to the Heart of the Matter

With the right support, any organization can thrive.

Red Shoe Consulting is all about helping our clients shine in good times and in bad. Consultations provide an individualized, in-depth look at what works, what doesn't, and help teams facilitate solutions.

As a seasoned psychologist, facilitator, and coach with a practical and humorous touch, Dr. Margarita Gurri, with her Red Shoe Team, is able to quickly assess the "uh ohs" that trouble your team, and create a cohesive, workable plan to resolve those problem areas and enhance the strengths.

With the right support, we can achieve marvelous things for the greater good and invite each individual to maximize their positive impact.

Facilitate Key Meetings for High-Performers 

Avoid Corporate Politics. Grow. Faster.

By facilitating key meetings, we are able to help you avoid the trappings of traditional corporate politics by preventing "brown nosing" from interfering with honesty. This fosters an environment conducive for communication and success, leading to a positive retreat or planning session experience.

These meetings help build on existing communication, leadership, and conflict management skills, while creating a safe, open atmosphere with on-the-spot coaching and training. This kind of environment invites everyone's buy-in and honesty, without allowing the day to dissolve into unproductive and morale-slashing gripe sessions.

Just as important, we are able to redirect any feuds, lingering, or emerging issues into positive, productive group dynamics and task-approach strategies.
