There are those that say they are 'Leaders', but do not practice what they preach. Izabela is without question not one of them. Izabela is a true Leader of greatness, you see this in the way she communicates, the way she responds to challenges, and her ability to listen to understand rather than to listen just to respond.


I am 67 years young and have had many positions in my life, some in Leadership and some outside Leadership. I am a strong believer and always have been in the definition that the legendary Peter Drucker quoted when he was asked to describe the essence of a Great Leader, and in my estimation, Izabela exemplifies these true traits! ~ William M Slattery CSP, Account Executive w/Distinction

Izabela's focus on the importance of high-performance, human-centric/forward-thinking leadership through her Legacy Leaders Institute is tremendous. As a leader with 30+ years "at the helm," I can attest to her amazing thought leadership in this area.

Organizational leaders must understand the value of further developing new leaders after them. Izabela's Legacy Leaders Show/Podcast is great. She highlights proven leaders' careers and tips for developing the next generation.
