Even as long as two years after Leslie had completed her work with us, I found myself thinking as issues were raised, ‘This is what Leslie was talking about. This is what she wanted me to be prepared for.’ And, because of her uncanny ability to see and understand what was to come, I was prepared.
Leslie Kossoff has the rare ability to effectively combine the objective elements of a situation with the passion of today’s business environment to create a success orientation that is uncommon in the day-to-day stride of management. Her ability to leverage individual strengths and views to stimulate the group raises synergy to a higher level.
By bringing her considerable and wide ranging global experience across private and public sectors, Leslie helps Board Members discharge their fiduciary duty and address complex, difficult and sensitive issues - always with a mind to maximizing performance and steering the strategic agenda to implementation and delivery.
It was as if she reached into my brain, crystallized and put into words all the things I was never able to articulate myself. She spoke my dreams - and then told us how to make them come true.
Leslie is direct, honest and accurate.
Leslie’s elegant thinking and advice is stimulating, thought-provoking and immediately challenged and motivated us all to scrutinize how we are leading.
Leslie was an inspiration to our executives and Non-Executive Directors. Her approach leaves people challenged and enthused at the same time and her contribution endures in the best way.
She is almost prescient in her ability to identify what’s in store.
I shall never forget all the very wise advice and support you gave me when I was Chairing the [UK] Conservative Women’s Organisation. I shall be forever grateful!
Leslie is a beacon of executive leadership, management and insight to even the most seasoned professional.
