“We discovered an insightful resource in Edie Varley. At that time, as a result of market consolidation, we had two distinct cultures, different operating philosophies and varying business systems that needed to be combined and melded into one stronger unit. It was not a small task.

I invited Edie to help us maximize organizational effectiveness and enhance leadership skills development through executive counseling. She not only assisted us through that process, but she continues to help us today. Edie’s ideas, insight and energy have acted as a catalyst. She helped us to get rid of the “noise,” tap our strengths, define our values and enhance our effectiveness in the marketplace and in our own organization. Her fresh and original approach is business unusual. Edie Varley’s leadership example inspires our people to find and develop their own special MAGIC and ‘Make A Greater Individual Commitment’ to themselves and our organization.”
