Unpopular Change Execution

"I met Kathy at a workshop we both attended last fall. We were partnered on some activities and became interested in each other's companies. A couple months later, I called on Kathy to help me given her extensive manufacturing experience and her ability to consume and quickly distill vast amounts of data. She not only walked me through some opportunities that were not clear to me, but provided an excellent Naturalicious Dashboard that I use on a daily basis to grow and meet the operational and customer needs of my business. She also provided a great roadmap

"I had the opportunity to attend one of Kathy's 5-Day Six Sigma Workshops. I did have some initial concern going in to it knowing that I would be away from the office the whole week, but after the first module my concern quickly went away. Not only was the content that Kathy provided rich with applicable industry related examples, her vast experience in applying the six sigma, lean and quality tools enabled all of us to easily connect and engage. The workshop exercises were real-world and again, could easily be applied to a current opportunity. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and can say that the time investment has already paid off. Anyone getting the opportunity to attend one of Kathy's workshops will leave ready and excited to hit the ground running."
