“People come to me in various states of angst. Sometimes they are frustrated by the people around them. Often times they have a hunger inside of them that they just can’t seem to satisfy. I show them how to harness what they need with the strengths, needs, values, priorities of their colleagues.
That’s when the magic happens.”
