Career Experience

Under Terry’s leadership, TerconPartners has grown from a regionally focused firm in America to an international human capital consultancy. Terry has extensive experience supporting major capital projects, where she has collaborated with project executives and teams to achieve performance breakthroughs and to dramatically improve organizational capability. She has coached leaders and developed multi-cultural and multi-discipline teams on five continents and in several off-shore facilities.

Prior to founding TerconPartners, Terry served as an executive with two different international organizations providing customized adult education courses for multinational corporations. As a result of these experiences, Terry developed a passion for helping people increase their understanding of and respect for cultural differences. She conducted research into the relationship between cultural differences and conflict, and subsequently developed a methodology for preventing costly cross-cultural conflict in work teams and organizations, as well as an option for leveraging the differences for mutual benefit. Terry also taught Leadership, Organizational Behavior and Performance Management at several U.S. colleges and universities. She frequently lectures in topics such as Trust-based Leadership, Cross-cultural Teaming and Conflict Management.
