Hello, once again!

I'm delighted to share this second K-Cast for April - it's valuable
for many, many reasons. Remember that you access the audio

This time, my guest is Kathy Trickey, a Professional Certified
Coach, trainer and consultant with over 35 years of experience

As a “cultural bridge builder,” she assists individuals and teams

Love and Great Joy,
