Kirkus Reviews


Cynthia moves aspiring to mid-career leaders from their familiar ways of working and thinking to heightened leadership, using storytelling, reimagining, and self-directed planning. As both a mindset and method, her Crossing Meridians approach provides the framework for a deeply personal, step-by-step approach to leadership development that guides leaders through cycles of Discover-Plan-Act-Repeat.

Cynthia encourages leaders to engineer their own disruption—taking on uncomfortable, more complex development actions so they can lead more effectively having crossed divides and gained the essential leadership capabilities of empathy, openness, and resiliency. Here’s a snapshot of the Crossing Meridians method.
