“I am indebted to Kathleen Bartle for her assistance in assembling a fine working team for the Sophie Miller Foundation. As a new entity under the auspices of The Episcopal Home Communities, a former client of Confidence Connections, the foundation was fortunate to have the services of Kathleen. From help with fine-tuning job descriptions to reading Kolbe indexes and applying them to this organization’s needs, Kathleen was precise, accurate and wise with her advice. After the team was in place, Kathleen’s coaching was invaluable in creating structure for the staff jobs. Her help was instrumental in setting us up for success. I will call her in the future, whenever I run into a glitch, because she is able to zero right into a problem, which saves time, and for all of us, time is money.” ~ Janelle Morton, President, The Sophie Miller Foundation
