"My early ideas of leadership were about control and accountability. Simply setting goals and reaching them was the only way I envisioned success. However, being so driven caused me to lose sight of emotions and personal fulfillment as part of the daily work experience. When I started to build relationships and invest in people, things changed for the better. Using my extensive experience in schools, Alignment Leadership taught me that I can use my strength in knowing how to read people and mediate difficult conversations. Alignment Leadership leverages my strengths as well as those relationships to benefit the whole organization."
