In this episode, we’re chatting to Gretchen Gagel. An expert in the construction industry, she consults to owners to support the cost-effective planning, design, and construction of capital assets, and to contractors, engineering firms, and material and equipment suppliers.
Her firm, Greatness Consulting, has worked with high level clients over the years including Intel, Marriott, Hewlett Packard, United Airlines and others.
Gretchen holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, an MBA from the University of Denver, a Masters in Nonprofit Management and a PhD in Organisational Learning, Performance and Change.
She is also an Affiliate Professor at the Australia National University and the University of Denver, where she develops and teaches courses on leadership and ethics, change and agility, strategic human resource management, evidence-based management and team performance.
Her research explores the relationship between leader behaviours and organisation agility, which we’re very interested in and talk more about in this episode.
She’s also an experienced consultant to the nonprofit sector and author of ‘8 Steps To Being A Great Working Mom’.
“The one piece of advice I give my clients that I need to listen to myself: You have to know how to say no so you don’t end up with too much on your plate.” - @GretchenGagel #PeopleLeaders #Business #Consulting
