To his colleagues and potential customers, I would say the following: I was especially impressed that Phillip obviously invested hours of preparation to ensure that he understood our organization’s strategic plan, our execution plan, and the challenges facing us as we make the changes necessary to optimize our processes and systems. The two day course was fun, energetic, informative, but most of all it was interactive and allowed us to solve change management problems and work through case studies as a team. Through it all, Phillip allowed us to understand how different behavior styles react to change and how to best implement change for each personality type.

Every attendee had only positive things to say about the entire course.
We look forward to seeing him again.”
