“It’s all about relationships. We choose an employer for a variety of reasons (pay, mission, commute, etc.). However, we love or leave a job based on relationships.  Like a pebble dropped in a pond, our actions and attitudes ripple outward affecting our relationships with colleagues, customers and clients.  I help others to be their optimal selves so that they are a positive ripple in their workplace.” CR
