Generation Bridge: Learn, Explore and Collaborate with people of all generations to address life's challenges.
Mary Beth Nelsen
President, The Right Resource
She brings over 30 years of experience as an outcome -focused professional development consultant and coach to her business. She has devoted her entire career to helping people understand each other. While this is important in all parts of life, she particularly focuses on communication in business, where communication breakdowns cost time and money, increased turnover, disengaged employees and unhappy customers. She specializes in leadership development, communication, coaching, generations in the workforce, essential management skills, change management, and employee engagement. One of her challenges is to convince people that communication skills do not get delivered by the good fairy via a magic wand. They can be learned and mastered. And then everyone is much happier. She does not guarantee anything that involves communication with teenagers or spouses.
Mary Beth is Chair of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council’s Women’s Leadership Council and a Board and Executive Committee member. She serves on the boards of the St. Vincent Medical Center Foundation and the Fairfield County Community Foundation’s Fund for Women and Girls’ FESP Advisory Council. She is also a Justice of the Peace and volunteer with Junior Achievement, Center for Family Justice, Sandy Hook Promise and Charlotte Bacon Acts of Kindness. She lives in Oxford with her family, some chickens and two dogs who rescued her.
