Kathy Almazol – Superintendent of Schools, Diocese of San Jose

by Adam Cortez in

I was charged by my Bishop to create a task force of educators, clergy, higher education experts and business people to answer the question: “Are Catholic Elementary Schools Sustainable?”

I was very fortunate to know of Wendy Ryan and her work.  Wendy outlined a process to fit our short timeline and we were able to report to the Bishop several options.  Her work was thorough, timely and discreet. Working with the SJ Leadership Coach format we presented a high level, professional document for the Bishop and his Executive Team.

I am certain if we had not had the expertise of Wendy on board we would never have met deadline nor would the task force report have been accepted by the Bishop and his team.

As a result of this experience we have engaged SJ Leadership Coach for the current school year.
