“Your knowledge of our organization, enthusiasm, and ability to weave entertaining stories with scientific research created an outstanding kickoff to our leadership conference. Although we have been on Fortune Magazine’s “Best Place to Work” for the last 10 years, I’m pleased to say that our leaders told me that they are using your ideas to create an even greater place to work and produce bottom-line business results.”

Time Frames

Keynote: 1 – 2 hours
Workshop: 1/2 – 4 days

I am already seeing results from your great leadership training. For example, I recently “dynamically juggled” all four leadership styles during a meeting with our silo-oriented engineering department. I’m amazed that we now have a unified and coordinated approach for solving a complex telecommunications challenge.

Presentation Method

PowerPoint presentation, videos, scientific research, case studies, music, and engaging stories are carefully interwoven with audience participation and humor.

I can’t think of a course that I’ve been to in 20 years that has offered a more practical ‘toolset’ to allow me to perform my role. In the hands of another facilitator this could have been a very long week of leadership theory, but you were an inspirational presence. I’m spreading the word to those who will be attending your training in the US on how valuable an experience this has been.
