Marilyn Blocker, MBA, MSM, Founder and Managing Principal, Innovation Outcomes, Metro-NYC Area "Marilyn helped us identify gaps between future leadership requirements and our current management through a comprehensive 360-degree feedback instrument assessment that involved over 100 administrators, managers, and physician leaders. She also assisted us in closing those gaps with individual and team development. Subsequent to that project, we engaged her for several strategic planning sessions to formulate strategies for managing a more complex organization as the scope of our services expanded. Marilyn skillfully challenged some of our assumptions and continued to provide feedback on how our leadership could be further enhanced."Sister Helen Amos, Chair of the Board, Mercy Health Services, Baltimore, MD. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ "Marilyn effectively facilitated a successful operating planning/team development effort that clarified roles and activities of key leaders and established a timeline for completion.

Marilyn clearly has the capacity to balance a strong results orientation with sensitivity, integrity, and confidentiality. Her style and approach to performance management is direct, yet expertly brings empathy and grace in training and coaching.
