About Leslie

I’ve always been driven by acts of kindness and live my daily life doing what I can for others. I launched my own consultancy at a time when it was rare for a woman to hold a PhD and work outside of the home. I’ve spent a career teaching and advising executives on issues of leadership, strategy, performance and culture. Beyond my formal training, my professional experiences with organizations from many industries have polished my skills as an empathetic listener and advisor to thoughtful leaders motivated to build purposeful, successful organizations. This is the background I bring as a Director at City Different Investments.
