Elaine and Lindsay welcome the challenges of complexity, where emotions are running high, and where polarization is getting in the way of progress. Instead of being overwhelmed by these challenges, they bring a calm confidence. The confidence is not only in themselves but in the people and organizations with whom they are working. Simply put, they know their stuff and they care.
