“Faith is an agile strategic and tactical thinker: able to initiate, shift and move the balance of her ‘dialogues’ and is adept at navigating around the seas of complex adaptive systems. She calls herself the elephant whisperer, but she is much more than that as well. Faith is highly intelligent, a clear communicator, who reaches, influences and encourages many, an authority on perception, she is not afraid to talk about truths and uncover the back story. She seeks to build, inspire and lead wherever she speaks of courage. Has a rare mix of abilities, probably not found on the Myers-Briggs scales.” November 3, 2010
