Leaders have three fundamental responsibilities: they craft a vision; they build alignment and they champion execution. Jill Klein is a master at championing all of these responsibilities that allow strategies to turn into reality. In my many years of working with Jill, I see a truly great talent driven by the passion to see her clients succeed. Jill’s clients will be fortunate to benefit from her wisdom and her drive.

Jill is a unicorn – the rare person who can see what can be yet who also has the skills and drive to realize that potential future. I observed her first-hand as she succeeded in a change-adverse enterprise. Her ability to envision a better future is powered by her deep understanding how digital technology can enable disruption in organizational change and transformation. Her ability to execute on that vision comes from her practiced expertise for organizational change combined with her magic in attracting the right team of top performers who enable the success. There are many examples of leaders who can articulate a better future or who excel at implementing change — but there are very few who, like Jill, can accomplish both.
