Betsy is truly a leader of leaders. She understands how to connect with others better than anyone I know. Betsy is compassionate, balanced, and resilient, all qualities of a strong leader.

Betsy has an incredible ability to create a sense of safety and security. She has a very special talent for doing this in spaces of struggle and even pain and suffering. I’ve had the great pleasure of participating in some very challenging, very productive circles and conversations on deeply emotional topics which Betsy facilitated. In these spaces I’ve seen Betsy‘s talent in creating the environment others need in order to do the hard work of growth.

A quality that is revealed to me about Betsy is her ability to listen – she listens for understanding and she paraphrases my statements to deepen the level of thinking. Ultimately Betsy has been able to move our leadership group towards consensus, which is no small feat.

“Betsy has an amazing ability to help me bring clarity to my thoughts and improve my ability to articulate them. She’s particularly good at asking questions in a way that helps me think of things in a slightly different manner which often helps me get unstuck.”
