Building GREAT leaders one leader at a time!  As Gretchen de Castellane recently wrote "I've had a number of formal and informal mentors over the years, and Greg stands out as the influencer who inspires me to stay true to my leadership style, express my personal/professional brand essence, and be boldly ME so I can have the greatest impact on the organization I work within.  HIs wealth of experience as a global, people-first leader has yielded a treasure trove of information that I am honored to have access to."
