In the past few months, we’ve had some new additions to the Civility Partners family and we figured we should make some introductions!
Each of us brings a unique perspective and background to the work we do!
As you may already know, Catherine founded Civility Partners in 2008 as a result of working in a toxic environment, and has since led the Civility Partners team in serving a huge array of clients with consulting, training, and coaching services. She’s written three books, one of which Ken Blanchard called, “the most comprehensive and valuable handbook on the topic” of workplace bullying. Catherine’s also been cited in such media outlets as Forbes.com, Inc Magazine, Entrepreneur, and USA Today, and appeared as a guest on such venues as NPR and CNN.
Rebecca Del Secco
People & Culture Consultant
Rebecca started out as a part-time intern while she was getting her Bachelor’s degree in Business, with a focus on human resources, from San Diego State University. Within a few months, Catherine saw her potential and made her a full time employee. Years later, Rebecca continues to knock it out of the park designing training programs, unique performance management systems, mentorship, and onboarding programs. She also recruits like a boss for one of our rapidly growing clients, having hired 21 people so far this year.
Culture Change Consultant
One of our newest members, Kathy Grey, is an engaging and passionate leadership coach, facilitator, and conflict mediator. Catherine and Kathy met about a decade ago when Kathy was building a 30+ training team for No Bully, a nonprofit organization focused on building positive school environments that minimize bullying and harassment in the K-12 arena. Kathy is one of Catherine’s heroes, and she continues to support school communities as a respected thought partner and Senior Education Advisor for Power of Zero, a London based charity.
Training Guru & DISC Facilitator
Toni Herndon, EdD., is our very enthusiastic facilitator, conflict mediator, and certified DISC® trainer. She prides herself on bringing the opportunity forward for learners to engage in transformation, and transform she does. She consistently receives rave reviews from clients as she leans on her decade of experience as a facilitator, life coach and court mediator. (She was also a zoo keeper in a previous life, which might help too.) In addition to her work with Civility Partners she provides training for the National Conflict Resolution Center and Moxie Institute.
Marketing & Client Relations Coordinator
Sameen just recently graduated from San Diego State University, too. Rebecca, Sameen and Catherine say, Go Aztecs! After starting out with us as an HR intern, Sameen soon found her passion to ultimately be in social media and marketing, which led her to take on her new role as Marketing & Client Relations Coordinator. She manages all of our webinars and conference presentations, creates marketing content, and works on client projects. She is learning so fast and we are so proud to support her in her new career goals!
Clara is our newest team member and our Executive Assistant, Project Manager and Director of Getting Stuff Done with nearly 15 years of diverse experience spanning luxury retail, management consulting and leadership development. She supports Catherine and the team in the daily operations of the business. We learned a long time ago that Catherine needs a keeper to keep things moving. Clara is based on the East Coast and is also a proud mom of two young boys.
Now that you’ve gotten to know our team a little better, we hope you feel a better sense of connection to the Civility Partners fam. Don’t be a stranger and reach out to us if you would love to learn more!
