Clients say...

"Kathleen is really good at what she does. In a phrase, she 'gets it' when it comes to coaching a senior executive. Kathleen is pragmatic, funny and insightful. She will hold your feet to the fire and insist that you be the best you can be. If you want someone to tell you how wonderful you are, then look somewhere else. If you want to be the best senior executive that you can be, Kathleen will work with you to achieve your goals. Bottom line, she makes a difference."

Dr. Martin A. Mattingly

She is a sharp business woman with limitless knowledge around leadership and emotional intelligence.

Shannon Ryan

"Kathleen is extraordinary. She listens deeply, connects ideas and formulates profound questions that open up previously unimagined ways of making progress. She helped me effectively because she held me in a productive tension so I could show myself what I needed to do. I give her my highest recommendation."
