Pat's Background
Pat Esslinger

Member of Mid-Atlantic Facilitators Network

Although Pat's clients are pleased with the results she gets in meetings on any topic, she does have special expertise in public personnel management. During her 25 years with the US Office of Personnel Management, Pat had assignments in various Federal human resources management specialties, beginning as a Management Intern with particular focus on staffing. She held positions in operations, policy development, supervision, and management. Her highest level position was Deputy Assistant Director for Retirement Programs--unless you count a three month temporary appointment in Senior Executive Service as Assistant Director. Policy development work included Governmentwide job evaluation, compensation, performance management, labor and employee relations, and work/family programs. She has been providing facilitation and GroupSystems technography service in the Washington DC area since 1995. In the community of power users of collaborative meeting technology, she is a respected contributor and presenter. As a private practitioner, Pat is particularly proud that several consulting companies that she has partnered with have been so impressed with the strategic planning results she achieved for their clients that they engaged her to facilitate internal strategic planning sessions for their own organizations.
