Delise Crimmins

Delise helps teams and leaders improve their people skills, create dynamic corporate cultures and really just help leaders become the best they can be. Delise previously helped create JetBlue Airways, where they launched their first flight in 1999.  Starting an airline was a terrific opportunity to build excellence from day one and hire, train, and encourage a unique corporate vision. 

Prior to JetBlue, Delise began her career with Southwest Airlines. She helped create the Southwest Airlines "University for People," where she managed the University, built and delivered curriculum to thousands of SWA leaders each year.  During that time SWA was rated as one of the Top Ten Places to Work in America.  Delise's greatest joy in her professional experience is helping leaders and teams break through whatever barriers they are facing.
