Strategy & Planning Executive

“When COVID hit, our organization was required for pivot quickly, to prepare for an expected surge of patients (which thankfully never occurred) and to demonstrate active leadership to staff who were looking to us at a time when they were both scared for themselves and their families and engaged to do whatever was needed.  The work we did with Mike was instrumental for us to pull together as a team, capitalize on our individual strengths and look past interpersonal differences.” See full testimonial…
