DeDe Church and Associates are highly trusted partners that I’ve relied on for support in conducting investigations on a number of matters – some, very complex and difficult. I’ve always found DeDe and Team to be professional, detail oriented and excellent at getting at the “truth” of sometimes very challenging issues. Apart from that, DeDe and Team are very accessible in their approach. Team Member’s have often commented that “they are like part of the Whole Foods Team…” and have openly appreciated their “easy to talk to…” style – which I’m convinced, contributes to their successful process.
DeDe has also led outstanding onsite trainings for our Team Members on Respectful Workplace and Social Media Responsibilities as well as created and produced an excellent video on the topic for Whole Foods Market. Both the training and the video were done in a way that not only delivered an important message very well, but also was done in a way that was very much aligned with our culture and values.
I’ve worked with many consultants in this space, and without a doubt, DeDe Church and Associates are the very best. DeDe is the first person I call when challenging issues cross my desk. Thanks DeDe for the outstanding support and partnership!
DeDe Church and her associates have facilitated training sessions for many years for Metropolitan Transit Authority ("Houston METRO"). Our senior leaders look forward to participating in the Legal Updates workshop each year because of DeDe’s interactive, enthusiastic style and her level of knowledge of employment law. She has also helped prepare many of our managers for leadership roles through Management College workshops by teaching them hands-on, practical, easy to implement techniques for managing employees. DeDe and her team have a high level of integrity and credibility.
DeDe continues to be the “go-to” trainer for this area of our leadership development program. The information she conveys is always up-to-date and presented in a way that keeps participants engaged and eager for more. She is consistently the highest rated presenter on the program. Our emerging leaders routinely tell us that the subject matter covered in this session was the one they looked forward to the least but enjoyed and valued the most. Participants report that the concepts and practical information presented by DeDe have an immediate and positive impact in their workplace. Simply said, DeDe is a home run!
I want to share my experience working with Dr. Philippa Strelitz. She did an exemplary job leading Respectful Workplace training workshops for all of our team members, and the training made a difference in a lot of the employees' perspective. Philippa's strength of how to deal with difficult employees, gain trust, and lead a constructive course was vital for CPS Energy. I also value Philippa’s strategy for suggestive listening/participation statements which I will utilize for my future leadership training courses.
Dear Lisa and DeDe!
I feel so blessed to have found you both. I have been so stressed out over this OFCCP letter, and now I'm so excited to have the opportunity to learn from you and work on this solution together.
I am a member of a strategic HR forum with approximately 50 members . . . and I am sending all of them your company information, so be prepared to have more business this year!
Again, my heartfelt thanks!
