Barbara has been an invaluable partner in working with my team to help individuals gain personal insight and to improve their effectiveness. Recently, one team member remarked that working with Barbara has been the single most important developmental experience of their career. Barbara’s involvement turned my most recent leadership team retreat from a good meeting into a pivotal experience that moved us forward as a team. We couldn’t have gotten to that point without Barbara’s coaching and support. And when I asked Barbara to help me think through some leadership questions, I found her blend of empathy, experience and directness just what I needed to gain new self-understanding. And I use that learning to this day to be a better leader.
