“To every person there comes in their lifetime that special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for the work which could be their finest hour.” – Winston Churchill

“She was able to understand my strengths and put those to work for me. But also understood what I needed to work on to improve my communication skills, executive presence and to enhance my own leadership style. She has been an objective sounding board for developing approaches, ideas and strategies. Mary Jo understands business strategies and knows how to execute on ideas that are currently relevant in the current business environment. I now have a productive team and am successfully facilitating strategy sessions with my peers and stakeholders.”

Mary Jo [gave] me a clarity into my assumptions and provided a sounding board for solving challenges difficult to share with others close to me. I have learned my strengths and use them in dealing with everyday issues. In understanding what is my essence and what are my values, I can easily make better choices for long-term goals. Mary Jo helps bring the day-to-day challenges into a kaleidoscope of alternatives, providing for better solutions.”
