"I first met Alan a number of years ago when I heard him speak at an industry conference. I came away impressed with his insights, style and approach - so much so that when my senior leadership was facing some significant issues several years later, I brought Alan in to work with our team. Through pre-meeting interviews and assessments, Alan was quickly able to discern the key issues and underlying factors. In a subsequent two-day workshop, Alan used sensitivity, focus and well-honed facilitation skills to help our team successfully address the most pressing issues. The key outcome was an excellent path forward that carries through to this day and has made us a much stronger firm as a result. I would enthusiastically recommend Alan to any organization that is looking for a highly-skilled and effective executive coach and facilitator."
