Dr. Mary Shivley, Ed.D.

Transformationalist Leadership Consultant

There has never been a better time for businesses to invest in the development of their people.

In a world of hybrid work environments, it is more important than ever to reevaluate how to fully engage with coworkers, build effective work relationships, and create a culture of trust. Strategic Connections Consulting will help you elevate your organization by investing in the most valuable asset your company has— its people. Capitalizing on trust, communication, relationship building, and effective collaboration will help you lead your organization into a successful future. 


Many companies send employees to one-time conferences or training with the hope that the information will make a difference in their professional ability and with any luck might filter to other employees. If only it was that easy!  


Creating positive change in an organization requires a significant amount of time and energy that is continually devoted to creating a culture and language of leadership. That's where I can help.
