  Improving Organizational ​Performance

  Tasha Lester Consulting, Inc.

The training Tasha delivered was enjoyable, introducing some very robust EEO procedures and processes. Our fire department had nearly impossible deadlines to meet due to scheduling and she consistently delivered impeccable, high quality training on time. It exceeded my expectations.

Testimonials

Tasha created program policies & procedures, designed training for my staff, and developed an employee self-study policy guide. We were in need of her expertise to ensure we met all state and local regulations in order to pass NAEYC accreditation. Tasha is extremely knowledgeable, organized, and professional. She understood our needs and as a result we obtained accreditation.  We could not have done it without her.

She provided coaching and support to empower teachers as leaders and facilitated discussions on continuous improvement in classroom instruction by demonstrating the alignment of instruction with curriculum standards. We look forward to working with Tasha again.

Tasha was a valuable resource. She developed systems to evaluate our project's productivity and continually identified areas for improvement. Tasha assisted us with bench-marking, material and labor cost evaluations, and productivity monitoring and controls. With her help, our construction projects are now on time and under budget. Tasha played a key role and we could never say thank you enough.

Ms. Lester is passionate about education and is currently pursuing her Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership at Saint Louis University. She earned a Master of Arts degree in Human Resource Development from Northeastern Illinois University and a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree in Behavioral Social Sciences from East-West University. ​​

Tasha created an amazing training for our art consultants. 
​She was able to quickly grasp what we wanted to accomplish and had some great ideas on how to achieve our goals. She has a wide variety of implementation scenarios in her background that she could draw information from. The training that she put together with not a lot of preparation time was very well received. Another thing, she created our website and company logo. I now consider her part of our extended team.

Our restaurant was in need of Tasha's expertise to assist us with scheduling issues, insubordination and poor job execution. She conducted a needs assessment to fix performance problems and implemented a training just for my staff. With Tasha's guidance realistic action plans were communicated to all employees. I am proud to say that performance has never been better, turnover is extremely low, and lines of communication between employees is much better. We keep in contact with her to analyze and evaluate our progress in addressing performance issues. I recommend Tasha to help maintain a well-functioning operation.
