I'm Dorothy. My passion is leadership.
My purpose is to empower and inspire leaders, emerging leaders and others serving in public space to achieve optimum self-development, optimized individual, organizational, and team effectiveness.
I help governments, organizations, teams, and individuals.
Keen insight, experience, and wisdom gained from decades in public servant leadership have equipped and positioned me to advise and counsel leaders in crisis and help resolve complicated relational and organizational issues.
Teaching proven principles and practical applications to better equip, motivate, and inspire leaders and emerging leaders, I speak and keynote for leadership and faith-based conferences, develop and present proprietary leadership training and development seminars and workshops; and, facilitate local government and faith-based workshops, day and weekend retreats.
