“I am grateful to Lex for helping us get our manuscript completed on time. We would never have been able to pull it together without her patient influence. Lex kept us on track with writing and provided expert guidance. Then she edited the work beautifully. I really appreciate the role Lex played with us.” 
– Jim Luckman, January 2019
Author and Partner, Lean Transformations Group


“Take The Lead introduced me to Lex as I was planning a leadership conference for 300 women students from across 29 CUNY campuses in fall 2017. Lex was a thoughtful partner throughout the planning process, asking the right questions to tailor a presentation that would resonate with our audience. As a presenter, Lex was powerful and engaging – the students participated with enthusiasm and left armed with new, practical tools to pursue their objectives. I would be delighted to work with Lex again.”

“I trained as a Leadership Ambassador with Take The Lead in April 2016. Lex was responsible for producing a 2-day training event and much content for a dozen or so participants. Her strengths shined through: connecting people for mutual benefit, a commitment to mission and purpose through both the experience and the content delivery, and careful synthesis of complex leadership development and feminist theory in the work.”

“Lex was an invaluable editor for various case studies, articles and posts that I had written. Lex ALWAYS offered valuable ideas and advice, while allowing me to maintain by unique writing voice – something I appreciate greatly to this day. And best of all, we were able to consistently work through an editing cycle in a day or two; I never found myself waiting for great feedback. She is a joy to work with.”

-Eric Ethington
Founder, Lean Shift Consulting

“Working with Lex was a very collaborative process, and she brought innovative ideas to the table while listening to our needs and goals. She designed a 60 minute workshop for ~50 people that was interactive but also gave attendees the space to reflect and internalize the day’s discussion. We highly recommend Lex as a facilitator, coach, and leader.”

“Lex led a workshop for a group of people with diverse backgrounds and personalities, and immediately got everyone engaged. Her enthusiasm is contagious! Though skeptical at the outset (how do you learn trust during a 2-hour workshop?), I left with a greater understanding of how to facilitate more productive and meaningful work relationships.”

“I attended the Lean Transformation Summit and the Open Space session held by Lex. It was wonderful… This session alone was worth the price of admission.”

“Lex helped us develop our organization’s bi-annual professional development event with a staff of 35. She is knowledgeable and skilled in facilitating conversations that are collaborative, appreciative, and conducive to innovative thinking. She listened and tailored her support to our unique needs and organizational culture. Lex was sharp and an absolute pleasure to work with. She collaborated with us to ensure every voice in the room was heard.”
