There are a few templates that require your input for me to reach a better understanding. Other documentation is prepared by me with your staff and through providing my services.
What is your style?
This manual and other strategies need to be interesting, informative, accurate and not condescending. It should motivate and inspire others, and increase confidence. It needs to be on every desk and referenced regularly because it is valuable.

Cheryl is a strong work performer and well-organized with a strong work ethic. Her experience across several industries and with large corporations and smaller companies is an asset. She has broad experience in a wide variety of assignments and projects. I would highly recommend Cheryl, as your organization will not be disappointed.
Cheryl directly supported me as well as my management team. Cheryl was always eager and cheerful. She seemed to always want to take on more work, learn more and contribute as much as possible daily. Importantly, she was a quick learner, never seemed to have to explain anything to her more than once, and was very good at anticipating requirements. She was always prompt, professional and to the point, and she had an exceptionally well-organized desk and filing system. I can't speak more highly of her in this role!
In a noisy, cluttered digital world, Cheryl brings calm, humour and common sense to the table. Practically, she showed me how to organize and simplify emails and online files in my coaching business. Her structured approach is easy to follow and she ensures I understand by investing extra time and attention where it is needed. Personally, Cheryl is warm, inviting and cheerful. I love sharing zoom rooms with her in our online network (CIBN Connect). She is a mentor, a dear friend and a source of real support. Stop scrolling and meet with her, you will be hiring her in no time!
I wholeheartedly recommend Cheryl Erickson. We have been working together for 2 years now. Cheryl makes certain that she understands the need and then accesses the most efficient route to as full a solution as possible.
If you are looking for "Johnny-on-the-Spot," you just found her.... and talk about a pleasure to work with! I have never met anyone quite like Cheryl, and her skillset is outstanding. You will not want to miss the opportunity to have an exploratory conversation with Cheryl Erikson!
