“Last year our organization was in a state of flux. The management team was committed to implementing a vision that would provide expansion and growth for the company. Rosie provided a leadership development program that focused not only the details of what a plan may contain, but also on how we communicate better to develop the plan. Her leadership provided our group the means to work together to identify common goals. By her example we were able to make steps forward in creating an atmosphere of collaboration among our team, and extend
that collaboration to improve the culture and employee engagement in our company.”
