“Darlyne’s years of experience was essential in helping me see the big picture of my organizational culture and where I fit in. Her positive but no nonsense approach boosted my confidence and helped me move forward in my leadership role. Working in an industry with lots of ‘gray’ areas is difficult for ‘black and white’ people like me to navigate. Since working with Darlyne, I am now more focused and have clarity about my future within the organization and my career as a whole.”

“The coaching I received from Darlyne through the EXCEL leadership development program gave me the confidence I needed to make changes in my life. She helped me unblock my barriers to becoming more assertive in my personal life and business career.
