“Jill recently spent a day with our Leadership Team and led us through some practical, thought-provoking exercises. Her poised professional style enlisted our trust and resulted in some compelling discussions regarding our business strategy and teamwork. She skillfully guided us to deeper conversations than we would have achieved on our own. After some follow-up work internally, we’re anxious to have her back to take a deeper dive into other areas of our business. I highly recommend the book Scaling Up and follow-up sessions with Jill as a way to jump-start growing your business.”
