Top executives create the company culture – whether they are conscious of it or not.  And culture drives results.

Executives with high EQ (emotional intelligence) generate greater profitability, employee engagement and talent retention. Most organizations don’t succeed or fail due to lack of technical expertise – rather it is generally a failure of culture and leadership.

Lidia helps executives and team leaders improve their EQ.

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability

“My commitment to helping people is a direct result of my own unique journey. As the daughter of Ukrainian immigrants, I was literally born on the way to a new country. An unusual childhood gave me a keen sensitivity to the immense importance of culture, especially the transitions and stresses that happen to all people. I live and work in the Kansas City area.”
