"Marlene Olshan is one of the most gifted executives that I had the pleasure of working with. She brings to every assignment strong leadership skills and vision. She is always “results-oriented” and is interested in bringing about fundamental and effective change. In the more than eleven years that I had the pleasure of working with her, I was amazed on a daily basis at her ability to get things done – she did so with great skill and humility. Marlene is a renaissance leader for such a time in history as this. "

”Thank you for beginning us on our much needed journey. I have been through many of these types of initiatives before, in a variety of companies, but the feeling I have at the conclusion of your session is different.
I believe that a very big part of this is that your approach forced us to do the work, which reinforced our responsibility/ownership of the process not just a consulting group “telling” us what needs to be done and how to do it”
