The Office of Quality Initiatives (OQI) at Carleton University have had the privilege of working with Erin Crotty, of Bloomstra Consulting for over 6 years in different capacities.  Erin has provided us with leadership and expertise in the areas of professionalism and coaching, which has helped us to develop our effectiveness and our ability to grow as an organization. Erin has a unique style of listening to understand our needs and then working together to become successful.  Most of Erin’s work has been to provide one-on-one coaching at various levels within and outside the department.   She has worked with individuals on short and long term coaching plans as well as doing “laser coaching” for specific urgent issues. Erin has a wonderful way of engaging with her clients, building trust quickly and executing on the agreed-upon plan. I would recommend Erin to any organization that is looking to make a difference.  She brings the best of herself to the relationship. To further illustrate the value that Erin brings, below are some personal testimonials from individuals who have benefited from Erin as a coach. “Coaching has allowed me to learn about myself and find answers that I didn’t know I had.  I feel that ...

As part of the annual Professional Development Program for the Interpreters of the Immigrant Women Services Ottawa, we engaged Erin to present to our group on "How to Make a Powerful and Positive First Impression."  Her presentation was truly appreciated and well received, and will greatly enhance the professionalism of our Interpreters as they represent themselves and our agency to our service providers. One of our Interpreters also wanted to share her experience of Erin's presentation: “Erin showed me once again that success comes to those who love and respect themselves and who radiate self-confidence at the same time. It was an excellent opportunity to remind ourselves that impeccable appearance and ability to present oneself is a whole science in the world of business etiquette, needs to be appreciated. Thank you, Erin, for this lesson of success”

I had the pleasure to work with Erin as one of our invited speakers at the 2017 Atlantic Chiropractic Convention and Tradeshow. The full-day workshop titled Professionalism, Service Excellence and Effective Communication was very well received by the attendees. Erin developed a tailored program for chiropractic health assistants and staff to optimize their leadership skills, professional presence and communication skills. Erin added personal touches to help to build rapport with attendees which enhanced the learning experience. Erin’s enthusiasm and expertise in the subject matter are apparent, but it is her caring nature and generous spirit that truly makes her unique. I would not hesitate to work with Erin again in the future.

Erin did an amazing job of making our full day staff retreat a success.  The approach taken with her Professional Presence Workshop which included practical exercises and interactive presentations on how to be a leader in every interaction was well received by staff and many have put the skills learned into action which is a testament to her skills and style of presentation.  She is a consummate professional and prepares for the sessions with curiosity and clarity integrating a coaching style which is always well received.. Erin was also celebrated by our Board of Directors for her half day workshop on Networking:  How to Become a Master Relationship Builder workshop.  This session led to many board members feeling more confident embracing networking opportunities and being stronger stewards for our association.  The information, skills and practical exercises are still  spoken about and have become practice for our board in many different situations.  Overall I would highly recommend Erin for any of these sessions, she is able to connect with the audience and customizes each workshop based on the needs of the organization.  We have benefited a great deal from having her train staff and our board.
