You have our best wishes for a successful career as a consultant and I’m sure that it will be helpful to a lot of organizations.
Board Chair – I’m not sure we could have gotten to where we are today without your help. We quickly established trust and confidence in you and you never disappointed us. You were there for us the many times we needed you and the results of all of that work are obvious.

Sr. Vice President of Operations Southwest Missouri Bank – It has been a great pleasure to have gotten to know and work with you I wish it would have been longer. You have certainly helped me in so many ways ….
Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Poplar Bluff – I think I speak for all of us by saying we are very grateful for all of the hard work and effort that you bestowed upon us. You have a legacy here of a Club that went from 200 members and two sites, to six sites and close to 500 kids a day. Words will never do justice to what we have accomplished and lives that are impacted daily from your work.
Director, Boys and Girls Club of the Greater West Plains Area – It has been a pleasure working with you over the last 16 months. Where would I begin to start an explanation? The highs are many, the lows are few. With your guidance I have learned much. The result of your efforts working with our club have given over 150 kids in our community a place to call home. You are a rare breed Nancy. You do not act in your own self-interest and are one of the most honest individuals I have ever had the privilege to work alongside.

Success in this environment demands a highly skilled leader.

These are personal characteristics that transcend time and circumstance; characteristics that are evident in the leaders of organizations which thrive in flush times, in lean times, and in changing times. Over the next several Blog posts, I’ll share those observations with you. This week’s observation is this:
