"I have had the pleasure of working with Sylvia as a colleague in an executive management tier position. My assessment is that Sylvia's unique, value added effectiveness as a leader and communicator is her innate, genuine, deep respect for the diverse views and opinions of those she works with. Collaboration for Sylvia is simply not a convenient buzz word but the fundamental operating principle for action. Sylvia, I appreciated the opportunity to work with you and our colleagues on the challenging operational, organizational and advocacy issues we all faced. Your leadership in an anemic environment of confused and mistrusted "upper-level" directions empowered us to get real things done!"
