“Mary Beth worked with a diverse group of participants- educators, business professionals, and nonprofit leaders- around a difficult topic. Participants emerged from her facilitated sessions energized and focused. She was able to listen and suggest strategies that would fit with our culture and assist us in moving forward with the planning process. I enjoyed working with Mary Beth and Pathways Facilitation Services and hope to do so again.”
