Kirk Balin
Regional Vice President

I personally have worked with Nancy Maki directly on many high level, confidential, and very sensitive projects. I have found her to be an excellent partner, who gives sound, useful recommendations and direction and cannot sing her praises high enough. She is bright, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and innovative. I recommend that if you get the chance to partner or work with her, you will not be disappointed. She deserves my highest regards.

Nancy Maki is a rare form of consultant, an experienced practitioner with broad expertise who isn't content to use her toolkit in accustomed ways. Her background in human development and her deep listening approach ensure she and the Open Gate team are delivering workable solutions finely tuned to address your specific business concerns. Don't let Nancy's unflappable demeanor fool you--while her great respect for human beings in the world of work is unsurpassed, the leader's needs for accountability, productivity, and effectiveness are foundational to her practice. Working with her, you'll get the "people stuff" done right while achieving the outcomes you require.
