We take responsibility for getting things done and delivering results.
As Centrepoint’s founder, Doris has consulted, advised, coached, and facilitated extensively with leaders of owner-managed businesses across many industry sectors, with senior leaders in non-profit and government organizations, and budding entrepreneurs in the chaos of business start-up. Her mission is to help leaders develop and deliver on a vision for their people so they can achieve their business, professional, and personal goals with more clarity and less effort, without second guessing the decisions they make.
From who and how to hire, to identifying and developing leadership talent, to creating role clarity with contemporary job design, or building a strong HR foundation, she supports owners and leaders in building the bridge between strategic intent and their people. She walks the way with them to plan and scout the road ahead, evaluate different approaches, asking a lot of questions and engaging clients in essential conversations about the people practices and decisions that will best deliver on their business goals.
She loves seeing people vigorously engaged in doing ‘stuff’ they like. She focuses on helping individuals remove barriers to sharing their full wits, skill, and energies in moving themselves and their organizations forward. Through her leadership and career coaching practice, she has assisted hundreds of individuals in addressing their professional development challenges. Whether working with CEO’s, entrepreneurs, emerging, high potential talent or tenured leaders, she provides fresh perspectives and strategies to help them successfully navigate their journey with wisdom and integrity.
Doris is an accomplished speaker and presenter to various CEO and executive forum groups. As a writer and educator, she has authored many articles, blog posts, white papers, and management tool kits relating to topical workplace issues and people practices.
She holds Bachelor of Arts and Education degrees, has completed graduate work in organizational development, and holds the Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation, along with certifications in a number of psychometric instruments, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
