“The Art of Leading Coaching & Influencing Others™ has prepared the Leaders of our company for the future. As a result of this program our leaders think strategically and more like owners of the company instead of employees. They lead more effectively and the walls that used to separate individual departments have dissolved. This Investment far outweigh the benefit from any equipment we’ve purchased over the years.”
Joe worked extensively with my leadership team over a period of 7 months as part of The Art of Leading, Coaching and Influencing Others™ Program. Throughout the program, I could see the transformation of the team as the skills were internalized and then utilized within the broader organization. The growth and maturing of the organization was absolutely transformational. Joe has an excellent ability to work with individuals to uncover their strengths, opportunities for improvement, and what may be holding them back in their professional development.“
