Client Testimonials

Jaya Koilpillai Bohlmann, MA, APR

Corporate Communication/Public Relations

“ShiftWork came into my life and my work as I was facing the most difficult challenge of my professional life as a communication executive for a multi-billion dollar global company. Ms Pinnock helped me take each piece of this challenge and look at it as a manageable task adding up to an exciting opportunity for me to grow as a professional and as a human being. Throughout, she helped me address all my strengths and needs and bring my whole self to work. Not only did Ms. Pinnock gain my trust early in our relationship, she helped me discover who I really am, which boosted my confidence and empowered me. By the end of our engagement, I was a more powerful leader, a happier person and much more sure of my place in the professional world."

Mike Martin, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Leadership, Management & Organizational Development Program Manager

"I have had the pleasure of working with Sukari on several occasions in the areas of executive coaching and facilitating organization development (OD) interventions for both the public and private sector organizations. These endeavors were successful due to the care she took in preparation as well as her skill in facilitating the intervention. Beyond her skill as an OD facilitator and coach, Sukari is also a gifted trainer. I have called on her to design and deliver training programs for our internal leadership coaches here at NIST. I have always been very happy with not only the service Sukari has provided to my organization, but also with the quality of products that she delivers. I plan to utilize her services often in the future."

Derrick Thomas, National Vice President

District Two, American Federation of Government Employees, AFL-CIO

"Last year I worked with ShiftWork Consulting to help me design and host a regional meeting for my constituents in the District I manage. My goal for the meeting was to re-energize my activists and walk away with a long and a short-term plan -- complete with actionable tasks. I was blown away by how much ground we were able to cover in just two days time. The ShiftWork consultants not only designed and facilitated a meeting that hit the mark - they were also easy and fun to work with. These folks really know how to get it done!"

James B. Smith

Executive Director, NTL Institute

"Sukari Pinnock is stalwart member of NTL Institute for Applied Behavioral Science, a global network of academicians and scholar-practitioners who practice organization development throughout the world. She co-leads one of our foundational programs that engage participants to understand how their own behavior appears and impacts others. Sukari is a committed professional that possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience in diversity training, executive coaching, and conflict management skills. As a skilled facilitator of group dynamics, she galvanizes and energizes the groups for which she supports to engage cutting-edge group dynamic frameworks to achieve their objections. NTL is honored to have such a dynamic visionary and scholar-practitioner among its ranks."

J. David Cox

President, American Federation of Government Employees

"Not long ago, the phrase “strategic planning” was a foreign concept within our organization.  Thanks to the enormous creativity, vision and constancy of Sukari Pinnock, strategic planning is now a core function of every component of our organization. Sukari has taught and led strategic planning sessions at every level of our union – from small and large locals to agency-wide councils and regional divisions all the way up to large national gatherings that included hundreds of elected leaders from many backgrounds.  Her effectiveness and ability to connect with people is as strong in a small conference room as it is in large, convention-style gatherings.  Sukari’s talents also include an extraordinary ability to custom-design processes tailored to the needs and purposes of diverse organizations.  Shiftwork Consulting, under Ms Pinnock's leadership, has been a valued partner and absolute treasure to AFGE."

Hillary John

Director, Communications & Board Relations, AARP

"Sukari's straightforward approach to coaching provided a clear path to reaching my highest potential. She has a warm, yet assertive demeanor that helps to put even the most challenging situations into perspective. Sukari made sure I set stretch goals for both professional development and personal wellbeing, as she challenged me to look introspectively to find the answers to achieving success. I highly recommend her services."

Elena Churikova

Senior Manager, Governance, International Federation of Accountants

"I have worked with Sukari over the past five years via several coaching engagements.  Although I am based in New York (where there are no shortage of coaches and consulting companies, far from it!), and our interactions were mainly over the phone, I greatly benefited from working with her both professionally and personally. What I like best about Sukari is that she believed in me; she was truly invested in my success and challenged me to do things out of my comfort zone, yet which worked to my best advantage. She is a gifted coach with vast professional experience: she pays great attention to the details of a given situation, asks the right questions, and helps the client come up with game changing ideas and solutions. I would highly recommend Sukari and cannot wait until my next engagement with her!"

Dale A. McLeod, SHRM-SCP

Interim Vice President, Human Resources, The George Washington University

"Shiftwork Consulting has been instrumental in numerous capacities ranging from executive coaching to facilitating multi-year organizational development initiatives.  Sukari’s engagement style and professionalism has been well-received by participants which has contributed to visible positive results.  I fully recommend Shiftwork Consulting for any engagement regardless of scope."

Susie Lee

Executive Director, Potomac Health Foundation

"Our foundation staff needed expertise in helping us come together as a team. There are four of us with very different personalities and communication styles. Because of our inability to manage these, our working relationships and ability to work effectively toward our mission to improve the health of the community were suffering. Shiftwork Consulting was recommended to us and I decided to engage their services. Sukari designed and facilitated interactive team-building sessions for us that left us understanding each other's personalities and drives better. She equipped us with skills to communicate and provide feedback to each other and during our sessions, she had us already start putting them into practice while she was there to guide us. Our staff still uses these tools on a regular basis and we all agree that the sessions with Sukari were invaluable to our collective effort as a foundation. This is difficult work, but Sukari does it with expertise, wisdom, and finesse."
