“Steve Boyd has greatly helped Seattle University over the past several years working as a facilitator and guide with its Board of Trustees, its Executive Team, and several departments of our university. He combines wide experience and a comprehensive knowledge of how to lead change with a creative, refreshing, personable style of interaction. I find that this opens a leadership group to its own best inspiration and sense of empowerment.”
