          In her own words:

          "I am absolutely passionate about seeing people develop their full potential and supporting them to engage with each other in constructive dialogue.  It is essential to create an enabling environment for this to happen so to me personal, leadership and organizational development go together.

          Today's leaders cannot be developed for the future using yesterday's models.   We need new mental models to have an impact on today's complexity.  My goal with creating Leaders Today  is to offer advanced coaching techniques, organizational and leadership development activities based on top, recent research and best practice."
