Female Tech Executive
Like many companies, we had our #metoo moment. As a founder and CEO I was confronted with a gender dynamic in our culture that surprised me, I felt targeted by, and all I could do was get angry. I was suspect when we reached out to Leadership12 but they did help us quickly transition from the battle to a collaborative problem solving process. Immediately I could see how we could use gender conflict to drive trust and innovation. We now see that conflict is an indicator of what needs to change and develop in our business.
Male Founder and CEO
SHAMAN • MEDIATOR • TRAINER
James : Elizabeth is one of the strongest mediator-teacher-healers I have ever met. When I was thinking about a partner for doing this gender dynamics work there really was no other option. I am fully confident in Elizabeth's capacity to be an incredible value add to any leader, team or enterprise. She has special expertise in trauma and healing from harm, particularly sexual harm. She has extensive experience transforming conflict in business into partnership and entrepreneurial opportunity. I think she has such a profound impact on others for two reasons: her empathy is vast and her creative mind brings innovation to difficult situations. She is a circle keeper who I fully trust to convene any group and take them from where they are to where they need to be. I have a deep personal and professional respect for Elizabeth which is why I wanted to take on this project with her.
LAWYER • MEDIATOR • Coach
Elizabeth : I have known James for decades, and have always watched with fascination as he took on gang violence disputes one day and C-suite disputes in major corporations the next. He has a mind that is rare to find as he sees through the fog, and finds the overall patterns in a culture that needs to shift. He can see the experience of others who have been disadvantage by a system, and does not have any trouble speaking to this truth. He has a special capacity to engender trust by deeply honoring the humanity of others, while having a strong discerning perspective that hold people accountable to who they are becoming. He is both artist and lawyer with an intuitive sense of how to make it safe, and give people voice. He can think out of the box, and find the solutions trying to emerge at the height of any conflict. I find it quite healing to work with a man who role models strength in these ways.
