Xenia's ability to actively listen and distill the salient points is exceptional. Her perception, analysis and ability to reflect back accurately and concisely were determinative in my making a key decision about the direction of my career. As a result I made a clear choice, which was the right one, in a relatively short time. I only wish I needed her coaching services for longer as she is a pleasure to work with.
Lynne Mendelsohn, Business owner & Founder of two NGOs, Zambia
"Xenia is consistently impressive. Her professionalism, deep knowledge of the international political environment and clear-sighted and perceptive views have proved invaluable.”

Xenia’s unique coaching style helped me lead a unit through a challenging change process. At the end of a few months, my team's changes resulted in significant positive impact on more than 1 000 business users and decision makers. Senior management acknowledged our change as a great “journey of transformation”, the lessons of which have been invaluable for me as a leader.
