“Nursingale has had the pleasure of working with Shirlene and Jeanne from IGS for  over 6 years.  During this time the IGS team has lead us through the development and implementation of two strategic plans, a successful board development process, and leadership team building.  Our non-profit now has strong agreement on our core values and each day I see staff validating our mission, practicing improved communication, and functioning as a caring cohesive crew.  Shirlene and Jeanne were able to identify our individual and organizational strengths and weaknesses and helped us put processes in place to grow and mature based on this information.  Their personal style, openness and enthusiasm for teamwork are contagious.  I recommend IGS without reservation!”
