Praise for Fresh Leadership
Dee Jay Miller
Retired CEO Kamehameha Schools

It’s a rare indulgence for CEOs to reflect on their personal plans amidst their accountability to others. It’s a competence that many of us have not exercised and could use some training in. Fresh Leadership helps you sift through complexity to find simple solutions and paths for the good of you and others. Whether you’re faced with minor adjustments or major life changes such as retirement, Fresh Leadership helps you hold the mirror that reflects who you are and becomes a portal for all that you can be.
