krista-vardabash-300Head of Strategic Plan Facilitation

Krista began working with business owners and organizations in 1991 to identify strategies to achieve better productivity. She often found that many lacked a clear plan for success, or lacked effective implementation of a plan already completed. Still others had reached a plateau of success upon realizing that running a successful business required business expertise in everything from attracting and inspiring a great team to increasing profitability.

Krista has a strong and successful track record for providing solutions to businesses and organizations needing to define and implement a path to their success. Some call it a business plan, or a strategic plan, or even a funding plan. Many come to know it as their ‘playbook for productivity’. In fact, Krista has facilitated hundreds of plans for businesses and organizations of all kinds. Her work has brought her across the United States and into Europe and Asia.

She was awarded the Women in Leadership Scholarship from Rochester Institute of Technology’s E. Philip Saunders College of Business in 2010 and graduated with honors with her Executive MBA in 2012. She has since been added to the faculty at Saunders College of Business as an Adjunct Professor teaching Leadership Skills.

When Krista is not guiding plans for businesses or organizations, she leads small-group retreats to Chiapas, Mexico to entrepreneurial communities in Tuxtla-Gutierrez and indigenous communities in the mountains surrounding San Cristobal de las Casas and beyond.

Krista has more than 20 years of experience working with corporate groups, SMEs and NFPs guiding them to achieve strategic plans that drive essential principles of stand-out cultures.
