PDD Silver Sponsor Highlight - Your Clear Next Step



Your Clear Next Step was founded in 2008 with a strong commitment to making work better for people in business. Our team includes trainers, coaches, and problem solvers who specialize across industries and disciplines, so we can support organizations, teams, and individuals from a variety of backgrounds—from finance and insurance to manufacturing and technology.

We make business better. Period. Through inclusive and insightful solutions, coaching, training and workshops, we solve, deliver, and teach so your Business and your People grow. Our classes are hands-on and highly interactive to maximize your learning on topics relevant to your role. We bridge the gap between technical topics and the "soft" skills that wind up being harder than you think—influence, communication, emotional intelligence, and just about everything else you might need to be effective and get things done at your desk, in meetings, and beyond.

When it comes right down to it, we're not just business people—we're people people. We know that organizations are most successful when their people are in a happy, healthy work environment—when you, your team, and your leaders communicate and work effectively together for the greater good of the business. We know that's easier said than done, which is where we come in! We're here to help however we can, whether it's a class, coaching, or more—our goal is to help you be the best you. Visit our website for a full list of workshops, webinars, and classes, and find out how we can make business better for you!

Our founder, Sinikka Waugh, has been an active member of the PMI-Central Iowa Chapter for over a dozen years. She's served as a volunteer and on the board of directors, including a fairly recent term as the VP of Marketing and

Communications. She's absolutely passionate about project management and about the opportunities – both for professional development and for personal and business relationships – that our local PMI chapter offers. And access to global PMI resources is just one more benefit of local chapter participation! PMI-CIC PDD has been part of Sinikka's annual calendar since 2005, and Your Clear Next Step has been proud to sponsor the event every year of our 10 years in business. We love the chance to connect with project leaders in October, and we can't wait to see you there! Don't forget to stop by our booth to say hello and to check out our fun giveaways this year!

We are most in need of a restructuring or update of our website to make it more user friendly for our staff. Currently, no one at our non-profit can gain access to the site to make changes. As well, the appearance and content is out of date. We'd love to be able to use the site to communicate better with our clients and families, as well as the community at large.
