Coach & Trainer
Becky has been helping people become leaders most of her life. At a young age, she was involved in school leadership and sports. While at the University of Washington, she held several leadership roles both in her sorority and through the university’s athletic department. This taught her the valuable skills of how to be a good teammate, how to embrace leadership roles, and how people working together can accomplish great things. Becky got involved in training when she worked for the American Cancer Society helping to build the Relay For Life program for California. She saw how generating buy-in from my team produced amazing results. She did this through training, coaching and motivating people.
For the past ten years, Becky has been working as a consultant and trainer for her company, teamWorks. She’s been able to work with organizations across the country on building an organizational culture that motives, inspires, and produces results. Her training is engaging, interactive and always have an element of fun. Becky’s goal is always to provide an experience that helps people connect with each other, gives them key objectives to apply when they get back to their desk, and understand not only the what, but the how and why of a given topic.

After interviewing a number of candidates to host a Corporate Networking event, Becky from teamWorks, and I hit it off. Her ideas and past experience fit perfectly with the type of networking event we were planning. She was very well organized and sent along a timeline of the evening, discussed options and made the whole process easy. We held the successful event last week, had great interaction and feedback from the attendees. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Becky again for future events!” – Angie Jansen, Thermo Fisher Scientific
Thanks! I just wanted to tell you I just came from my corporate meeting.. We have met with them once already but didn’t get much support. However today I walked away with a corporate connection that will help cover registration fees through the company. They have also welcomed us in the do lunch waves with programs the company funds. They also have invited us to do a national call to develop this partnership in all major markets they have offices in.. It was a perfect trifecta of all the major points you have coached me on. So my point is I am taking everything you have taught me into my meetings and are generating such great responses. So thank you and I look forward to having our next call!!! – Jenn Executive Coaching

“After attending Becky’s workshop, it was obvious that we could do much better. The exercises helped me gain a better understanding of what it really takes to recruit, retain and recognize our volunteers, and how to make our efforts more effective in the ever-increasing culture shift from a staff driven to a staff managed, volunteer driven organization.” Nonprofit Resource Center workshop attendee Trainer
