Leslie has been excellent to work with on many levels. She is deeply knowledgeable in processes that support equitable hiring. I have learned a lot on the mechanics that support a more transparent, fair, and less biased approach to hiring, from mutual vetting, to competency-based evaluations, to interview structure, to communication with candidates, and more.

Michael Griffith
Executive Director, Breakthrough Central Texas

Monisha is singular in her ability to actively listen, understand a situation from all perspectives, then synthesize not only the key issues, but also connections to prior conversations and even upcoming ones. The result is always a rich conversation after which I feel energized and confident. I look forward to continuing our work together!

CFO
National Education-Related Company

Leslie was tremendous. She was a great listener, collaborator and active thinker, constantly processing and applying things to refine and improve the tools that we used. She took all leads and really pursued them, focusing a great deal of time on rounding out the diversity of the pool. Ultimately, we had two finalists that we could have happily hired in the end.

Board Chair & CEO Search Committee Chair
Boston-based Charter Management Organization

Monisha is the person I call when grappling with my most complicated leadership decisions. Her combination of wisdom, humor, depth, and ability to tease out nuance has been magical when I've gone through professional transitions. Her warmth and incisive questioning prompts breakthroughs in my thinking that enable me to tackle high-stakes decisions while getting crystal clear on the values inside of me that are informing those decisions.

Nonprofit CEO

Leslie has helped us through a year-long CEO search. Her focus on equity and inclusion, especially when recruiting candidates, was extremely important to our goals and future direction. She was also very good at assessing folks’ strengths and areas to probe.

Julie Hudman
Board Member & CEO Search Co-Chair, Generation Citizen

Many, many things fell behind because of the various transitions caused by COVID-19, but our deliverable did not. I’d never been through a process like this, and I learned so much from Leslie. I could come up with adjectives, adverbs, etc., but the point I’m trying to make is nothing stops this woman—no drama; just results. And did I ever appreciate that...10 stars out of five!

Claudia Miner
Executive Director & Co-Founder, Waterford UPSTART

Early on in the process, Leslie and Monisha dug deep into our organizational dynamics and had the courage to speak truth to power. That was inspiring to see! They are also kind human beings who make you feel heard, valued, and listened to.
