Our leadership team is confident and aligned.
When Scott and I first connected to discuss a possible leadership onsite meeting, our primary objective was to ensure each member of my leadership team begins making decisions with the best interest of our region at the center of their thinking. From the day after the meeting you facilitated, to months after, I’ve continued to see evidence that this philosophy is driving the decisions and direction of our team.
The work we did with Scott created a strong foundation for a set of initiatives we’re in the process of rolling out. The processes and principles we’re implementing are strikingly different from the way we’ve traditionally worked. Thanks to our work with Scott, our leadership team is confident and aligned that this is the right thing to do because we’ve clearly defined who we want to be and how we want to operate.
I sincerely hope I get the chance to work with Scott again.

As a problem solver, Scott has the unique ability to find the root cause of problems, get to a solution and implement it with efficiency and innovation.

His self-effacing style makes him instantly likable and I have been lucky enough to work with him on a number of occasions in different capacities. Success, leadership and drive all come naturally to Scott and his ability to help others realize those same characteristics in themselves - is nothing short of remarkable. I sincerely hope I get the chance to work with Scott again.

Its difficult to put into words how Scott has impacted my and our team members lives. He approached our business relationship as a partnership and also placed high value on our goals as individuals. His expertise in training and professional development was demonstrated at the highest level every time that we spoke. He was not afraid to be honest with us and pushed our team outside of their comfort zone, to try new techniques to bring their professional career to the next level. What I really appreciated about Scott, is that he took a well-rounded approach to our sessions; he wanted to know where we wanted to be in our personal lives, our health and our careers. What made Scott, in my opinion, so successful is his passion for the individuals he works with. I felt both valued and challenged throughout our coaching sessions.
