He was the first coach/consultant our department hired and his holistic approach led us to reap benefits well beyond what the ‘tools’ alone could deliver.

"One of Michael's greatest strengths is his ability to create a meaningful, and impactful training curriculum, and then facilitate the course flawlessly.  He would tell you otherwise, but his ability to craft a training event, and then make minor adjustments mid-stream within the event, coupled with his knack for spotting (and calling out) the elephants in the room to make the most out of the event, are the attributes that make Michael one of the strongest facilitators I have ever witnessed." – Jason Bane, Manager and Certified Scrum Practitioner

"Michael worked with our department tocreate an environment that encouraged open and honest dialog, collaboration, and a true sense of community.  Personally, my leadership skills have grown and allowed me to experience many opportunities that I would otherwise have not had the confidence to succeed at.” - Traci, Manager.
