Reputation Recharge

As a leader of a high-performing statistics organization,
pause and ask yourself…

Do I believe that your statistics organization could do much more with just a little more? (capability, capacity) 

True or False: With slightly more reasonable resources and access to the mountains of data that your enterprise and industry have accumulated, you are ready to fully exploit the richness of your data and find needles in the haystacks that could exponentially enhance your company’s value propositions for not only internal stakeholders but also for external customers and ultimately for patients.

Does your team often get frustrated by the way collaborators view statisticians as non-creatives or just doers? (perception, engagement) 

True or False: Engaging your team as transactional service providers is the norm and is rate-limiting. Your expertise, capability, and potential impact warrant you being sought by cross-functional leaders and stakeholders as strategic business partners.

Does your team get energized and inspired to collaborate cross-functionally (including with ‘non-data people’) to solve the most complex challenges and/or discover the greatest of opportunities for value to the patients and the company? (breadth, depth of impact)

True of False: If your business partner would bring you to the table sooner and more consistent (and to more tables) you could reveal game-changing insights, inspire novel solutions, and co-create highly impactful evidence and value narratives for your company, your customers, as well as broader industry and healthcare communities. 


If you said YES to any of these questions,
we can help!

In summary

Alexander Schacht, PhD

Beth Manning is a change agent whose superpower is guiding ambitious leaders, teams, and individual contributors to unleash their fullest potential for impact by helping them solve the right problems, develop and deploy intentional influence with stakeholders, and setting overall conditions and habits for their long-term success and personal fulfillment! 

To do so, she leverages a uniquely comprehensive and integrated approach to her work, through the intersectionality of change and program management, design thinking and innovation, interpersonal and strategic communications, and laser coaching.  


Over the past 20+ years, she’s become a go-to leader and partner to challenge the status quo at all levels and in the full breadth of business – evolving culture and engagement, ensuring social accountability, enhancing corporate sustainability, reimagining processes and ways of working, co-creating business solutions across functions and stakeholders, and innovating to drive win-win-win industry-leading practices.

Most importantly, though, to Beth, is that she is known for showing up and speaking up and that she inspires and empowers others to do the same, even if their voice shakes. As a wife and mother in a bi-racial family, a stepparent, a patient and a caregiver, a female leader, a dancer and choreographer, and often a professional square peg in a round hole… she brings her whole self to the table, gives voice to others who may not yet be there and ideas that may have not yet found the light, in order that we may collectively do better, know better, do better, and so forth.

Beth very much looks forward to helping you bridge the gap between your team’s current state and your desired state in a uniquely targeted and highly personalized way. Even if you aren’t certain what that may look like or what help you might want or need, she’s always down for just a good brainstorm!
