Julie Grass, Principal



Julie helps clients reconnect with their passion and curiosity.


Mired in the day-to-day like many CEOs, managers and entrepreneurs? That keeps you from tackling the things only you can do to drive your business forward.  


Julie helps clients identify their real priorities and create a feasible plan to tackle them. As an organizational troubleshooter and company coach, she:

  • Assesses and understands diverse corporate culture

  • Builds dynamic teams with maximum impact and minimum drama 

  • Navigates  people dynamics

  • Engages staff to uncover creative solutions and opportunities that 'fit' the culture and stimulate new ways of thinking.

Julie teaches classes in communications, effective presentations, leadership and project management at UCLA Extension.


When you’ve lost your spark, Julie can relight it.

Do you ask staff to weigh in

after the decision has been made?


At that point, can they really

make a difference?


How can you get valuable input and buy-in from employees so you can make better decisions?


Solicit input early in the process so it can be factored in 
Provide overall context so everyone has enough information to participate
Entertain ideas and options you hadn’t considered 
Hear the impact certain changes or actions might create in other areas
Ask questions and solicit questions  
Circle back afterwards and let employees see how their input brought value to the process


Who will your employees listen to –

the guy behind the podium or the woman with the sign?


‘You can make a difference’ is a great mantra, but only if it’s true!
