we are a more productive and engaged leadership team

"The process is very collaborative. Cheryl really takes the time to understand and help us clarify what we are looking for and how we would like the process to unfold. The biggest moment for us was that it was very helpful for our team to understand, all at the same time and place, that we communicate differently and make decisions differently because of our preferred personality type. This level of awareness, combined with resources to modify our approach, has really made a difference in how we work together as leaders, both with each other and our direct reports. It has provided us with a roadmap, tools and a common language. The benefit has been steady improvement in communication and work relationships."

Rita, HR Director and Doramy, CEO

Cheryl is a very effective and compassionate coach who has led my team and I through some challenging situations. Her calm demeanor and her straightforward approach are much appreciated. Her perspective is thoughtful and inclusive and has helped guide our organization through several transitions. I look forward to many more years of working together."
