Kathy worked with [an individual] for ten months and we saw a significant shift in his approach and leadership. He ended up rising to a new level of leadership and was promoted to associate vice president and is doing phenomenally well. I’m proud we grew our team from within the organization, and Kathy helped us have the conversations and spent that time each week helping him (and others) unlock potential.”
— Nathan Chappell, Former Senior Vice President of Philanthropy, City of Hope
