Cheryl Alexander; Founder & CEO


“I have had the privilege to participate in Peer Mentoring Circle programs designed and led by Cheryl Alexander & Associates at the Carlson School of Management, Boston Scientific and Medtronic. The lessons learned through the reading, peer discussions and reflection remain with me today, and have changed the way that I lead. CAA provides a powerful mechanism that creates a culture of women supporting each other in their career and leadership journeys.”

Sharon Rozzi, Ph.D., Senior Director Global Operations, Medtronic Spinal

“The coached leadership circles (CLC) facilitated by Cheryl Alexander & Associates improved my emotional intelligence to better connect with colleagues on a personal level. By embracing this new leadership model I have been able to continuously improve interpersonal relationships in a more balanced way including both mind (logical analytics) and heart (emotions and passion). CLC was a very rewarding experience I’d recommend without reservation to any motivated leader who wants to improve.”

Christopher Ringwald, Senior Supply Chain Manager, Covidien

“CAA was part of the development and delivery of the Women’s Leadership Exchange Program at Medtronic. CAA was the vendor of choice. The program was well designed, supported throughout the process, and executed with very positive results. The investment in women leaders remains critical for the health and top performance for so many organizations whether government, not -for- profit or commercial. It is worth the investment to have a balanced, effective team of leaders helping to shape the future of their organizations. Tami was involved in the content, the coaching, and follow-up with the VP Mentors. I have found her to be quite insightful about women’s leadership, mentoring /coaching best practices, and a delight to work with.”

Kim McEachron, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Genomic Health, Inc.
