“Kathleen’s approach opened a new door to understanding my leadership style.  I learned things I knew about myself deep down but never realized.  Her technique helped me to harness those characteristics that make me a collaborative leader.  I would recommend Kathleen’s process to anyone who has a sense they can be an effective leader but who needs to better understand the innate tools that are programmed into each of us and how to best put them to use.”

–Joe Bondi, Executive Director of Development, The George Washington University
