"Holly helped me and my team break down the stubborn virtual walls that existed after the
pandemic started through the curriculum in her Extraordinary Leader Program. We were a brand
new team which many of us had never met in person! She effectively helped us not only come together mentally and emotionally as a team, but helped us weave joy, compassion and empathy into the way we were showing up to our teams during one of the most difficult times to be a leader. Thank you Holly!"

energized + Committed
"We engaged Holly for a three-part virtual version of her Extraordinary You program for a group
of women managers, and she was fantastic!! I have attended her in-person sessions in the past,
and I was amazed at how she was able to translate her encouraged level of interaction into a
virtual environment. Her passion and energy shines through the camera, and her delivery and
story-telling is truly engaging. Our participants left feeling inspired, energized, and committed to
their own development. Thank you, Holly!!"
Julie Gogolski | Deloitte CBO Leadership
lasting leader development
"After the Extraordinary Leader program, my leadership team is forever changed for the better. We are stronger as individuals because we know our strengths in a new way that will allow us to execute on them, as well as navigate what we dread. We will show up as leaders who have a better understanding of our teams, that care about our teams, and pay attention to what they need. I believe we successfully began to transform our organization after one day with Holly to realize the strengths of ourselves and others and make SLED East the destination."
Shannon Leininger | Area Vice President | US SLED East Sales
"I just attended the Cisco virtual Women of Impact conference and wanted to share with you that you are the most amazing, influential speaker I have ever known in my life. I have attended dozens of conferences in my 30 years working in HR and you are the absolute best speaker & motivator. You are extremely impactful and I have learned so much today. I am going to do the 5/ 5 / 5 goal you recommended but I think I’ll start with 2."
