The time Barbara and I spent together was an exercise in personal and professional development. Barbara listened beyond my initial words, providing insights into my comments that resulted in unanticipated depths of understanding. She also customized meaningful development assignments for each of our sessions. Barbara quickly got to know me, my personal life and the organization where I work. She provided feedback on the basis of that insight and was there for feedback and support along the way. My husband was my at-home partner relative to this development effort. At the end of our work together, he was compelled to email Barbara to provide feedback about the positive changes he observed and to thank her for her part in guiding me. Thanks, Barbara!
