Sydney Isle has worked in the change management field for nearly 30 years. She helps individuals, teams, and organizations identify where they are and where they want to be. Then she works with them to bridge the gap between current reality and their desired future states.
Prior to Featherstone, Sydney learned the basics of change management as VP of Operations of the Full Circle Group, NA (Formerly Maxcomm, Inc.), where she directed both consulting and technology-based product businesses. This role required her to balance the practical needs of structure and process with the interpersonal needs of the firm's human capital.
Along the way, Sydney developed special expertise regarding the tools and principals required to implement sustainable growth. This enables her to help Featherstone clients assess current levels of employee engagement and organizational clarity. She then works with those clients to design and implement initiatives that set the foundation for scaling.
Sydney has worked hands-on with organizations ranging from small start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations. She has driven projects and interventions that include individual coaching, team building and development sessions, C-level team meeting facilitation, and large group conferences designed to implement enterprise-wide change initiatives.
After her experience with the Full Circle Group, Sydney became a licensed mental health counselor. She still maintains a boutique private practice, and she is an instrumental participant in two of Featherstone's portfolio companies, Recovery Help and The Sababa Health Group, both of which provide tele-therapy services.
Sydney holds undergraduate degrees in Accounting and Business Administration from Stevens- Henager Business College and Westminster College, and a Masters of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Phoenix. She lives in the foothills of the Wasatch mountains with her twin children, Aspen and Everest, and her dog, Geddy.
