This week, we are proud to share Elizabeth Bryant’s story.
Elizabeth interned at Sendero during the summer of 2017 before joining full-time at our Houston office in 2018. She graduated from University of Texas with a degree in NeuroCounseling. Elizabeth worked on numerous projects as a consultant before transitioning to her role as an Organizational Development Senior Specialist. She also currently serves as the lead of Sendero’s Wellness Committee.
We sat down with Elizabeth to ask her about her experience as an Organizational Development Senior Specialist.
What led you to Sendero?
I was looking for an opportunity to intern at a business the summer before my senior year. I had plans to explore the more clinical side of my major but wanted to experience something entirely new before making my final decision. At the UT career fair, I was so excited about my conversation with the Sendero folks — how they loved their jobs, respected the people they worked with, and recognized the value of employees with different experiences and educational backgrounds. After my summer as an intern, I was eager to return the following year as a full-time employee!
What stands out to you about Sendero?
Sendero cares about understanding its people and constantly adjusts its processes and initiatives to support their needs.
What is your favorite part of your role?
Leadership Development. Whether it be through check-ins with the consultants, ensuring our folks are getting necessary growth opportunities through GO Planning, gathering data on their practice area interests, or contributing to staffing decisions, I am eager to help ensure our people continually grow.
What is one task or responsibility you have that people outside your team might not know about?
I regularly meet individually with our employees to check in on them and to discuss their growth opportunities at current assignments.
What is something that you learned during training that has stuck with you?
I learned just how impressive the people that I work with are. Each person I met had a unique perspective, an achiever mindset, and a genuine interest in others.
