I referred a business owner to Anita for help when an issue with a colleague had implications too big to ignore. Anita helped the two strong personalities work through the issue, restore the business relationship to a workable level for them both, and prevent a more negative impact on others. Without Anita’s expertise, I’m not sure this would have happened. Anita’s expertise and her calm and caring approach are remarkable!
