Instead, turn to hiring tools that incorporate behavioral and cognitive insights. This is the best way to predict how a candidate will think and work.

From Our Clients

SOAR Community Network has been advising leaders and creating dream teams since 2011. Hear what our clients have to share.

“The consultations with SOAR’s leadership team provided really interesting context on how we communicate today as a team and how we can communicate more effectively and grow thoughtfully moving forward. We’re grateful for their ability to pull off effective retreats and workshop sessions remotely. Our team is so happy with where we landed, and we simply couldn’t have gotten there without their skillful leadership.”

Sarah Wick

COO, Crooked Media

“SCN worked with us and helped us to: 1) To know each other better; 2) To lead us to recognize our own skill sets and peak work times as well as to unlock the skill sets and peak work times in each other; 3) To come to a greater appreciation for our team and the work that we do collectively as well as individually; 4) To aid us in understanding who and why we are the way we are – our individual lens from which we view our work – our Scholars, and what that means for our team strategies and possible successes; 5) and to help us bridge the gap between our communication and listening styles; 6)To bring us to a greater level of work efficiency and cooperation. The experience helped bring forth authentic communications and growth between team members using innovative activities and conversations.”


Team, Flaherty Family Foundation

Mali is an excellent facilitator for executive and staff retreats. She quickly understands unique business challenges and helps develops
strategies to address them. Mali also has a strong but inviting presence in work meetings that helps keep everyone attentive and
engaged. Our organization has worked with Mali for a variety of specific sessions and we have utilized her recommended tactics to
help lead a major internal initiative to success. Specifically, we were going through a transformational technology project that required
collaboration from a large team comprised of a variety of skills and behavioral characteristics. Through her recommended approach of
recognizing and embracing the behavioral norms amongst team members and the encouragement of flexing outside of preferred
behaviors, it really helped keep our project moving beyond what could have been significant roadblocks. Our team not only gleaned
new information but also applied these concepts within our work which has made us a more cohesive and effective team.

Ryan Draughn

Director of Information Technology, NLC Mutual

It has been a great experience working with the SOAR team. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and working with them has been very easy, seamless and fun. It was an excellent program! We will want to continue this work and show our employees that we’re going to invest in their leadership development.

Kathy Sullivan

Chief Financial Officer, Boon

The Association of Philanthropic Counsel engaged SOAR Community Network and Mali Phonpadith in July 2021 to assist with vision, mission, and values, and with operationalizing our goals for diversity, equity, and inclusion. We selected SCN from a proposal process, and we are SO glad we did. Mali calmly facilitated two half-day sessions for us, which is particularly remarkable because members of APC are themselves all trained, experienced facilitators in group processes. With Mali’s guidance, we could focus on the content and make significant progress. She has stayed with us as part of our engagement with quarterly check-ins and counsel. This is important for an all-volunteer organization of consultants as we need someone to hold us accountable. Thank you, Mali and SCN.

Melissa Brown

Principal, Melissa S. Brown & Associates, LLCP

I’d like to thank you for the enjoyable and informative session we had today. Throughout this journey, I’ve gained valuable insights into my own strengths and areas to be cautious of.

A key takeaway from today’s event was the behavior quadrant, which has been particularly helpful in understanding my colleagues’ strengths and natural tendencies. Utilizing this knowledge, I can better navigate challenging discussions and reach consensus with my coworkers. In fact, I’ve already applied what I learned in my interactions with my teammate, and I am happy to report that I am seeing more smiles from her. 🙂

Paul Tran

CTO, GravyWork

I was really impressed with the high participation and engagement.  I think people got super vulnerable because SOAR really set the tone with sharing your story. And I think that just made people very comfortable to let their guard down and be vulnerable.

And then just the genuine breakthroughs of having additional connections with your teammate outside of your day-to-day core functions. It was real team development. My team realized, “Hey, we’re doing this to get better together.” When I saw people interacting that way, I could see it pushing us forward.

The workshop made me want to focus on my caution areas more, where I’m flexing and how to be a better leader.

John Parafinczuk

Agency President, IMC

“The talent strategy process we went through was absolutely amazing and phenomenal. I like that it not only addressed individual strengths, personalities and work styles but then it takes those key components and applies them to organizational objectives and then it takes us one step further to creating actionable items that we can implement our work more effectively. I highly recommend this process because it is a complete package to move your organization forward.”
