"Any time we're in session training, the thing that I like the most is the time we spend applying training concepts to specifically the issues that we have. As an executive coach, Mike is able to take the complicated and turn it to the simple."

"The Birkman was frighteningly accurate. Also, the results were absolutely non-judgmental in approach; important for the subject to objectively review the results for maximum personal benefit."

"I really liked working together with our management team in these sessions. It has helped the entire team to open up about the issues they face, offering solutions and common experiences. The sessions have also created a new level of accountability and opened communication among the team, which has helped us determine when we need to pivot and reassess versus when we need to realign our thinking."
