Rhiannon Galen-Personick

To say that Rhiannon Galen-Personick has spent much of her career focusing on our youth would be a bit of an understatement. She has focused the last 15 years working with mature youth (foster, troubled, challenged) in a variety of companies and settings. She has held various roles from direct care as a case manager, counselor, to more of a macro role as a program coordinator and supervisor / director.

In the past few years, she has refocused on leadership and organizational training and development exclusively in child welfare organizations. The move was driven by the need to take her incredibly effective field experience and multiply it across organizations. In effect, she is a change agent who is intolerant of the status quo, while being a patient but relentless in fostering individual, team, and organizational change.

She has a wonderful balance in her training – focusing on negotiation, effective communication, conflict management, group coaching, training, and leadership skills in an organizational setting.

In 2016, Rhiannon joined RGalen Consulting as trainer and coach. Her broad and deep soft skills and ability to facilitate classes and workshops have proven to be an asset in the agile space. That and her infectious enthusiasm for organizational and cultural development and transformation.
