A graduate of The School for The Work of Byron Katie, Tova powerfully translates The Work into her coaching by facilitating clients as they question beliefs and behavioral patterns that derail success. A hallmark of her coaching is that it is profoundly transformational. Specifically, by identifying and upgrading one’s personal IOS (Internal Operating System), individuals create coherence within themselves and their teams, and become more effective at unlocking the collective wisdom of the organizations they lead. Clients find that for the first time they are truly capable of mastering their leadership.
