Client Testimonials

“Joe is a corporate shaman. He brings great enthusiasm and a deep, spiritual perspective to his work. He can really bring together a group of disparate people and fuse them into an effective team.”  John Bomhoff, CFO, Guggenheim Museum

“I recently used Joe for an executive retreat with my management team. This is a team of senior executives that are running complex, multi-billion dollar businesses and as a rule are not easy to please. Joe’s exercises were well received and helped ensure that my management group left this retreat a more cohesive and motivated team.”  Arthur Higgins, Chairman, Bayer HealthCare (see letter)

“These communication tools work at home too. My teenage son came in, sat down and initiated a conversation with me; he said I’m more approachable.” Senior VP, Webster Bank

“Joe consistently provides our principals with an outstanding leadership experience.”  Roland Barth, Founder, Harvard University Principal Center

“The session on Tuesday afternoon was unbelievable. I didn’t expect that we’d surface and discuss so many of the issues that we’ve struggled with for the past year.”  Steve Hooley, SVP, State Street Bank (see letter)

“Joe’s ability to accurately assess the needs of the group and stay attuned to individual sensitivities, combined with his results oriented approach, made his initiatives memorable and effective.

trust and collaboration will no doubt be one of the lasting legacies from these sessions.”  Lou Kaucic, SVP, DAKA Intl (Champs Americana)

“We finished a multimillion dollar project ahead of schedule, setting a new record within GE”  John Beirne, Project Manager, General Electric

“Wow! Joe’s workshop exceeded my expectations as well as the expectations of my team. He creates an environment of safety, fun and learning unlike anyone we’ve worked with.

I highly recommend this process.”  Allison Watts, DDS (see letter)
