- Results-Based Leadership Development
“I definitely bring the get-it-done mindset to the table. I put a lasso around all the good ideas and get people to a decision point. I’m analytical, but not a micromanager. I listen well, and then bring focus to an end result that everyone can move toward. It’s gratifying to see the difference it makes for clients.”
