"At the time Elizabeth Cipolla from Decision Associates began consulting for CBB, we were going through a period of difficult transition. We knew there were administrative items that needed to be addressed, but Elizabeth went further. She could see that our culture had been negatively impacted by a series of challenges in previous years. More importantly, she knew how to help us change that.

Thanks to the programs Elizabeth developed for CBB, we enjoy a completely different culture. There is a positivity and comradery that permeates our organization now. People report feeling appreciated and more part of the process. There is laughter again, and that's a wonderful sound to hear."
