What People say about us

Words matter. And they matter even more when they come from client partners that worked closely with us in implementing success.  

 
 

Leadership Pipeline Development

“The Alma team brings a national perspective on how state and local education agencies across the country develop their teachers and leaders. They have an inclusive approach, involving stakeholders at critical junctures to co-develop important work. They quickly built trust, working shoulder-to-shoulder alongside school and state leaders to unpack key insights. The team’s facilitation savvy and content expertise helped us all to reach consensus on actionable ways for us to improve the effectiveness of Hawaii’s school leadership pipeline.”

Principal Support and Supervision

“Monica and the Alma team understand district context and customize deliverables to meet the specific needs of the district. Everyone on the team is responsive, timely with deliverables, and just a phone call or email away when needed. Her team is extremely knowledgeable around all content related to Human Capital Management. Their work is well-researched and they have experience with many districts. They truly are practitioners of their work.”

Tricia McManus, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Leadership and Professional Development, Hillsborough County Public Schools


Coaching, Training and Facilitation

"The professional coaching Monica Rosen led with me changed my life.  What I appreciate about Monica is that she believes in compassionate accountability. She was able to encourage me through intentional and powerful inquiry to identify my strengths as an executive leader and to build on them, all while examining my gaps in performance in a way that was relevant. 

Because of Monica, my team and I were able to define our unique roles and specific work with a degree of clarity that propelled us to the level of national recognition in terms of performance, production, and outcomes.  I cannot imagine being in a professional role from this point forward without having Monica Rosen in my leadership sphere.  

Monica's coaching inspired me to move from a solidly average performer in my work to a relentlessly-focused results-minded leader with a comprehensive understanding of organizational systems and how the complexity of human beings is at the very core of our work.  There isn't anyone I trust or respect more than Monica Rosen.”
