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."

Alma Lee

President, AFGE National Veterans Affairs Council

"For several years now, we have engaged Shiftwork Consulting as a trusted thought partner to support the strategic planning work within our Council. As a result, strategic planning and organization development have become core functions by which we engage and support every level of our membership. Shiftwork Consultants have a unique ability to connect with our leaders and stakeholders -- no matter what environment we are working in (face-to-face or virtual). Theirs is a "customized" approach to what is often complex work, and it
is always specifically tailored to the outcomes we seek -- a rare ability among organization development consultants."

Lynn Screen

Managing Director, Institute for Transformational Leadership, Georgetown School of Continuing Studies

We hired Shiftwork Consulting to design a program to enhance the competence of our faculty so that they could better support our students. Sukari customized a virtual faculty learning series to address our immediate needs and created the conditions for the faculty to continue their own development long after the program was completed. Sukari brings a very strong academic understanding of the evolving DEI field coupled with practical hands-on experiences that can be put to use immediately. Sukari is a master of her craft. She uses her lived experience to connect and help others see differently, and she is action-oriented to ensure participants apply what they have learned.

Sean C. Carroll

President & CEO ANERA (American Near East Refugee Aid)

ANERA had the pleasure and fortune of working with Shiftwork Consulting through a series of facilitated discussions and training sessions to build greater levels of trust, communication and understanding among our staff. Sukari very expertly and deftly led us through Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training at a critical time in our organization’s - and the nation’s - history. Throughout the process, Sukari created conversations tailored for our organization and an environment that encouraged full staff participation. As our training sessions progressed, she adapted subsequent discussions to ensure each session worked to build on the last and meet our established objectives. Her knowledge and experience with the subject matters and with diverse group dynamics served our organization very well. I highly recommend her services.

President and CEO, Richmond Memorial Health Foundation

Over the past three years, Shiftwork Consulting has been working with the team at RMHF as we have deepened our commitment to advance health and racial equity and work to become an anti-racist organization. A master facilitator with deep content expert, Sukari skillfully holds space for team members to deepen our individual and collective understanding of racial equity and anti-racism, examine and challenge the implicit and explicit biases that compromise our efforts, express and work constructively with conflict and tension, and make concrete changes to practice and policies. Sukari works from a place of authenticity, with deep integrity, empathy, humility and strength. She takes great care with design and preparation ensuring that all voices and perspectives are hard and respected, and making people examine complex issues of intersectionality and power. Sukari Pinnock is a needed force for good in these times.

Lennox Joseph

4inter-group frameworks to help them achieve their objections. NTL is honored to have such a committed scholar-practitioner among its ranks."

Hillary John

Senior Vice President, SKDK

"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

Vice President for Human Resources, New Jersey Institute of Technology

"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."
