"Cynthia was instrumental in helping me achieve my goals and land a job in the Senior Executive Service."  - SES Candidate, HHS

"I came into the program discouraged about my future with the government, burnt out and perceived as an autocratic leader.  The coaching I received from Cynthia resulted in a renewed passion for work, changed behavior and attitudes, and has inspired me to want to improve even more.  I graduated from the program grounded in and perceived as a values-driven leader.  In fact, I was personally requested to serve as Chief of Staff of the Forest Service and Special Assistant to the Undersecretary because of the skills I had strengthened in teamwork, collaboration and coaching.  And perhaps most importantly, Cynthia helped me bring balance into my life and incorporate healthy lifestyle choices." - SES Candidate, USDA Forest Service
