Merzad Consulting has provided us an insight into our individual and collective strengths. As an organization in transition, information that helps us understand our skill gaps and the unique contributions that each of us brings to our enterprise is invaluable. It will inform our planning and organizing as we move forward.
Their presentation of our findings was a dynamic modeling of how a team with complementary strengths can function at a high level. We learned as much about our own possibilities by watching them guide our shared reflections as listening to their observations about us. The Strengths Finder tool has inherent utility. It has even more in the skillful hands of Mimi and Randie.
I would recommend them to anyone interested in taking a look at unlocking the potential of their organization.

Mimi and Randie brought passion, excitement and commitment to working with our organization. They have a passion for the work that they do and a passion to help organizations - particularly nonprofits with impactful missions.
Mimi and Randie took the time to learn as much as they could about our organization, its culture, and where we had areas for improvement in order to make recommendations and a proposed action plan to realize effective culture change within our organization.
Along the way, they were able to guide us and equip us with tools designed to create and maintain culture change within our organization.
They worked with our leadership team to create a safe space to have open and honest conversations in order to build upon a culture of trust with the goal of further strengthening the efficiency of the team.

Working with Mimi has been extremely rewarding. By going through Strengths Finder training with her, I was able to better understand what I can bring to my work, my team, and my personal life. You don't often get to think about your innate strengths, but by working with Mimi, I have a new-found appreciation for what I can do and how special we all are with our own set of unique gifts. Within a few short weeks of working with Mimi, receiving her invaluable insights, and experiencing her unwavering enthusiasm, I already feel I have a new direction about which I am sincerely excited.
Strengths Finder on its own is a great exercise, but with Mimi I was able to go so much deeper and get that much more comprehensive of a look at what my skills can do for me. It's been invaluable, and I can't wait to keep working with her!

Mimi has been an instrumental part of my own professional and leadership growth. As a leader and coach Mimi has the ability to quickly cut through the ostensible noise of a given situation and see to the heart of its’ challenges and opportunities. She is then able to create a nurturing and accountable context in which more serving attitudes and behaviors unfold and take root. She understands that trust is at the core of all human relationships and serves as the platform for transformative and meaningful work and more efficient results. I am indebted to her for her skill, wisdom, passion, and guidance.

Because of Randie’s Strength Finder training, our team has a better respect and appreciation for each other’s natural skill sets As a manager, I can more strategically assign tasks (based on the study results or) in areas where I am confident they will excel. This has resulted in a more efficient and productive workplace.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mimi and her partner, Randie, on organizational development. They are a knowledgeable and dynamic team who helped our group gain insights collectively and individually, which is helping us achieve greater alignment and understanding as a coordinated unit.

I highly recommend Mimi and her organization and am grateful for their guidance and wisdom.

I benefited both personally and professionally from working with Mimi and Randie. As a team, they offer a highly complementary set of skills. They are sharp and strategic thinkers with a diversity of experience to draw upon. At the same time, they demonstrate warmth and an authentic concern for the growth of each of their clients. They know how to help each particular individual and organization recognize and harness their unique strengths. I really enjoyed working with them, and came out better informed, empowered and with a clearer road-map for achieving my goals.
