Favorite Quote: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ― Helen Keller
Who I Would Call for Advice: I have a few friends with whom I have been close for decades (one for 44 years!). I know they will speak the truth to me ― even if it’s not what I want to hear.
Most Important Skill: I can bring a group together. When I am with a group of people who seem to disagree or are focused on their own issues, I can pick out the threads of what’s important to each of them, wind them together into a cohesive message or plan and present it back to them so that they can see that they have shared interests and goals.
