Lisa Silverberg has been an incredible asset to our organization.  Ms. Silverberg brings to her work interest, excitement, and enthusiasm.  She worked with us to create a framework that met the needs of our meeting participants and moved them, in a short period of time, from a collection of interested people to a team that was prepared to work together over time.  Her flexibility helped the team members feel that their needs were being addressed during the process. Her willingness to listen to us, the clients, helped shape the meeting in response to our concerns. She also worked incredibly well with our long-term evaluator to create a seamless partnership of facilitation.  One participant commented to me that she assumed that they had worked together for years, not months. 

Maybe the best recommendation I can give her, is that we would work with her again at the drop of a hat.  – Program Director of a National Education Organization

Lisa Silverberg guided our team to “practice what we preached;” i.e., to help us think strategically about the best way to use the Web to advance our foundation’s program goals.  Drawing upon her skills in coaching, team building, and strategic technology planning, Lisa helped me engage a new and young staff in a process that had us examine our target audience, message design and media choices in light of our intended goals. 

The process that she helped me build-- in large part modeled by her own way of working with me as a client-- helped me as director establish an ongoing work style with my staff that could live far beyond the time limits of Lisa’s contract.  Not only did we end up with a great new Web site, but with an engaged staff team and process for maintaining and further developing the site moving forward.

“The retreat that Lisa facilitated far exceeded my expectations.  I felt like a kid in a candy store with an unlimited blank check – I got more than I wanted and more than I even knew I wanted out of the process.” – Assistant to the President of an International Labor Union

Without Lisa's patient, wise, and sensitive guidance, I honestly don't think we would exist as an organization today. Somehow, Lisa managed to be on everyone's side at the same time, and in so doing reminded us that we'd be more effective working together on our common mission than fighting one another within the organization. Before we began our work with Lisa, each member of the staff and board had a separate and different understanding of the roles each of us played, the decisions we were each responsible for, and how to communicate with each other. But after spending a year with Lisa, we were able to sit in a room together with a shared understanding of how our organization should--and does!--function.

In short, I wish every organization was lucky enough to work with Lisa. I've often found myself in other work settings thinking, "If only Lisa were here!" I hesitate to call her a miracle-worker only because I know that what she does isn't magic; it's the result of concerted, thoughtful, and diligent effort, based on years of experience.  --Nonprofit Board President


Working with Lisa to develop an internal training program allowed our organization to step outside itself and make the time to do what we often advise others to do!  Lisa gently but firmly guiding us to decisions and her background in training, technology and nonprofits was invaluable.  Lisa is not afraid to ask the hard questions and to make sure that staff buy-in and leadership commitment are there, whatever the solution.  She thinks both short term/tactically and long term/strategically, which is an unusual gift.– Senior Consultant, Technology Assistance Provider
