Be a visionary global leader while leading profitable initiatives.
Build leadership and organizational capacity as you catalyze breakthroughs in performance, communication and leadership at the individual, team and organization level.
There is room for unique expressions of leadership.
The secret to your continued success is in being yourself, leveraging your strengths, minimizing the impact of weaknesses and finding a way to be as authentic as possible in your communication, self-expression and leadership style.
The most important first step is to cultivate enhanced self- awareness, which will transform their perceptions, relationships, teams and organizations. Self- awareness:
- Creates confidence in leadership capacity and abilities, which in turn creates an ease in relating to other leaders, stakeholders and associates
- Creates an open environment where others are encouraged to express themselves authentically, which creates a positive, open culture
- Dispels the mystery of their leadership and allows them to influence others to move the organization forward with velocity.
What is needed the most in organizations is welcoming and accepting all styles of leadership.

What people are saying about our work:
“Gina is personable with a high degree of integrity. She is an expert facilitator and consummate OD professional. She is 100% dedicated to continuous improvement.”
- Manager, Manufacturer of Tools and Equipment
“I went into the mentoring trying to change who I was, to be like someone else, and Gina helped me put the brakes on that – that I don’t need to be a different person to be effective.
I learned to value and see my particular leadership style and strength and that business needs people like me. This was refreshing – I can flex and adapt but don’t need to become a completely different person – and instead embrace who I am and leverage my unique skills. Gina and I spoke each other’s language, especially around strengths, insights, colors and behavioral styles.
One of my natural skills I have is the ability to ask questions that allow us to slow down, engage more deeply in the conversation and gain clarity.
I gained confidence and courage to be more engaged in meetings with executives who like to go fast, by creating a list of questions in advance. The impact on this has been….
- Senior Manager, Genentech, Inc.
“Each location was acting as “kingdoms and queendoms with no cooperation between them. Managing change was managing it away and not “rocking the boat.” The desired goal was to become a more innovative, cost-effective, value-added service provider as perceived by customers. After the leadership alignment session, the openness and vulnerability of the team made a significant ripple effect across the organization. They spoke openly and publicly of the team’s fears and perceptions and owned a part in creating the barriers of the past. They listened to the organization; critical feedback was acknowledged and perhaps for the first time in years, employees at all levels felt heard; employees had shared trust and renewed commitment in the leadership and the company.”
--Senior VP, Allstate Financial
“People are saying that this is the best training they have ever attended. We created a brand new communication process, formed a leadership group, experienced people who were not listening prior to our experience together totally open up. Everyone had the experience of being heard, a big shift for us. We were able to create fast solutions to some of our most pressing challenges. This experience completed exceeded my expectations. You guys did a great job!”
--Director, Abbott Molecular
