What our Team is Most Grateful for this Holiday Season:

Barbara Reilly, Ph.D., Senior Consultant

I am grateful for my family. Really grateful for the latest addition to the Reilly family - Christopher Luke, born 10/25.  

Vicki Abelson, Senior Consultant

2022 has been an exciting year. I am so grateful for each of my clients that allow me to partner with them on their growth and development. I do not take this responsibility lightly and am honored to get to do the work I do every day.

I am grateful for my TLG team. I learn something new from each consultant and leader in the organization every time I talk to them. It's a wonderful team and I am truly lucky to be a part of it.  

It goes without saying that I am grateful for my parents, brother, husband and my two kids who support me in everything I do. I couldn't do any of this without them. 

Susan Hitchcock, Founder of Women in Leadership and The Age of SHEroes

In 2022, I’m most grateful for the love and support of friends and family – and for the opportunity to return that love and support. In a world of uncertainty and turmoil, it’s what matters the most. Lastly, if I’ve done one thing to make someone’s life easier or better, if I’ve shared anything in word or deed to make a difference, then I’m humbly grateful.
