I cannot emphasize enough the positive effect that Monika’s interactions have had
My work with Monika has made a significant transformation in my work and personal life. Each person has a frame of reference or a lens through which they see their external environment. And most, if not all problems, occur when there is a mismatch between perception, expectation and reality. Monika has assisted me in shifting this lens and using a totally different frame of reference when interacting with my professional colleagues. This has resulted in an almost immediate and tangible improvement in professional relationships and work culture. Her presence has transformed a previously poisoned work environment, to one that is productive, positive, and has open communications. These positive transformations cannot help but having a very positive effect on an employee’s work ethic and the spill over effect it has on one’s personal life as well. Monika has also helped me to become a better manager and a more sensitive and compassionate leader. She has a striking ability to assist someone in letting go of previous baggage and move on to a more positive and better outlook for the future. Probably one of Monika’s greatest strengths is her ability to read peoples reaction, and provide immediate feedback on making positive changes for the future. I cannot emphasize enough the positive effect that Monika’s interactions have had both at a professional level and at improving the organizational culture of this department.
