“Our trainer, Cathy Robinson-Walker was by far the best that anyone on this executive [team] had experienced. We thought that it might be hard for a civilian trainer to work with a military group, but Cathy worked with aplomb and grace and really helped the group to tease out the major issues of our reorganization and come to a working plan of what could be done with the related concerns.”
