Welcome Otter Tail Leaders!

My name is Brandi Olson. And after a decade of working with leaders and teams at organizations from Fortune 500 companies, universities, and nonprofits, the most important thing I’ve learned is that a good strategy is only as good as the real work it generates.

This is why leaders hire consultants. It’s why they spend small fortunes on education and consulting and team building and conferences, and…and…and…

But again and again one theme runs through: At the end of an engagement, it’s still hard to make change. Why? Because leaders can barely tune-in. They miss pieces of great info, because they’re simply busy and the work doesn’t stop just because they decided to do some training with their teams. Then they wind up heading back to work even farther behind than they were when they started.

But what if you could learn, get real work done AND come out AHEAD?
What if you could build skills and solve problems AT THE SAME TIME?

This is what Real Work Done is all about.
