"As a senior executive, it’s hard to find someone knowledgeable, who you can be candid
with, who will listen and help you develop concrete, actionable solutions, as Tina does. She has helped me with some big organizational
changes, producing measurable results on 'human factors' that I thought weren't measurable, like leadership, team effectiveness,
and even organizational culture. I highly recommend her." ---Max Villalobos, Senior VP, Kaiser
“Tina provided an inspiring
vision of what was possible, bringing people together with grace, finesse, and the occasional appropriate confrontation. She
offered practical tools that engaged people’s motivation to “own the change” and carry it forward. We were
recognized for changing the culture of our organization, largely as a result of her work with us.” ---Dave Thornton--Chair, National Initiative Steering Committee, YMCA of the USA
"Tina worked with
me and my team to foster cross-functional understanding and institute a significant shift in how the teams worked together.
She was masterful in creating common ground and appreciation, identifying our opportunities to grow and change, and supporting
me and my team members individually and as a whole to successfully implement the changes we committed to making. I highly
recommend Tina and her work."--Chris Yelton, COO, The Sage Group

culture we desire. She has great leadership ability, and relates easily to top management, peers and subordinates. In addition,
you will enjoy working with her." ---Dick Thompston, Senior VP,

success. In particular, the quality of our strategic planning dramatically improved. Tina is strongly committed to the success
of others and holds herself to very high standards. This allows her to build trust, credibility, and support very rapidly.”---Tom Rafferty, VP--Operations, Levi Strauss & Co.
“Our work together over the past year has been a very valuable process for our organization. In addition to being
very skilled at training others to learn and use specific tools and concepts, I strongly recommend Tina because she is very
easy to work with, communicates her ideas very clearly and—most importantly—she is effective at creating the atmosphere
within a group where honesty and trust emerge.”---Andy Dreifort--CEO, A&D Precision
