Gayle was contracted by our Board to evaluate our executive director, review the society’s administrative model, develop new job descriptions as needed and develop an executive performance appraisal process for future years. She not only met but exceeded our expectations, helping our board get on with the business of governance! Gayle designed an inclusive and objective approach, providing clear and concise reports within a tight timeframe. As a bonus, she was able to provide several hours of leadership coaching to our ED. I would certainly recommend her to any agency looking for a consultant in this area.”
