Jan 27, 2015 | Updates about SageAge

Introducing Our Newest Consultant, Veronica Barber

As we continue to grow in clients, industry recognition and staff members, we are delighted to announce the addition of Veronica Barber, Consultant, to the SageAge Strategies team.

In her position with SageAge, Veronica will be using her exceptional experience and talent to expand our current service offerings in the strategic growth planning and operational performance areas including:

  • Visioning Retreats – These programs guide you in updating and revitalizing your strategic direction as well as enabling you to prepare for and respond to changes in the senior living industry and the preferences of the new wave of consumers.
  • Pre-Construction Retreats – Any new construction or major renovation project can be exciting and yet somewhat overwhelming. Many times, providers regret decisions made during the planning process. Our pre-construction retreats can help you to mitigate those potential regrets.
  • Operations Effectiveness Assessments – Our Operational Effectiveness Assessments (OEAs) allow you to quickly determine your “problem” areas, and help you to focus resources on the right solutions so you can achieve immediate and sustainable performance improvements. Our OEAs are unique in that they don’t just assess operational processes and organizational structures, they also assess underlying organizational culture and how it is supporting or hindering your success.
  • Post-Operations Effectiveness Assessment Implementation – Subsequent to the Operations Effectiveness Assessment (OEA), our team is able to assist you in becoming that high-performing organization you desire to be. We target the areas identified in the OEA and utilize a multiple-approach method that increases your probability of success.
  • Customized Leadership Training – Leadership training and ongoing personal growth of all employees is a critical differentiator for the best organizations across the nation.  It’s easy to send your employees to random leadership programs, however the most effective way to improve your organization is to grow your leaders from within. We offer a unique approach to leadership development for client organizations.
  • Ongoing Education – Although we believe education alone has limited success in changing the performance of employees, we do recognize the need for education, and offer a variety of programs that can be presented in either two-hour or four-hour offerings. Our trainings are not only educational, they are also interactive, entertaining and specifically geared to key areas of need, such as employee engagement and retention.

Veronica is a visionary leader and an excellent public speaker with more than a decade of experience in guiding strategy, transforming organizational culture and creating strong operational platforms for success. She possesses a Doctorate in Executive Leadership with a concentration in organizational change and change leadership, as well as a Nursing Home Administrator Licensure in state of New York.

She brings a strong and diversified foundational background to SageAge. Her most recent experience includes consulting for senior living organizations nationwide, presenting on current topics at national conferences, serving for 11 years as a Vice President/Chief Administrative Officer for a large Skilled Nursing community and spending four years as a Payment Policy Analyst for the New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

Veronica also has outstanding educational credentials. She received her Ed.D. degree from St. John Fisher College, Rochester, NY and her M.S in Health Services Management from New School for Social Research, Utica, NY. Earlier, she received her B.A. degree in Mathematics from Utica College of Syracuse University, Utica, NY.
