“One of our company’s core values is ’employee development.’ For the past three years Dan has played a significant role in helping us achieve that goal while increasing the leadership capital within our entire company where the business operations include manufacturing, distribution, sales, marketing and administration.

Dan has displayed a profound ability to absorb the specific challenges of each of our department leaders and develop specific coaching strategies to assist in their growth. Along with his Executive Coaching, Dan has developed training strategies and delivered world class speeches at our national meetings.

As a Christian business man I have a deep desire not only to provide for our employees physical needs but also offer a means for them to develop as a whole person. With Dan’s background and business acumen he has been able to support both their personal and professional development. Everyone that Dan has worked with has expressed tremendous appreciation to our company for providing him to assist in their growth.

If you are interested in nurturing a culture of personal development and improvement I highly recommend Dan to lead that effort.”

“Over the years I have come to value your opinion on many things, but specifically your ability to effectively carry an organization through change and trying times without compromising your, and the group’s integrity, yet coming out a stronger entity.

This speaks to your leadership and ability to build the leadership skills in individuals to build an organizational culture that is strong fundamentally. Where individuals have a great grasp on not just its core mission, but more importantly, on what the organization’s values are so that personal and organizational growth and success are complimentary to each other.

In essence, a culture that can withstand the constant challenges evident in our ever changing business environment.

I know your company will be a success, as your uncanny ability to effectively merge faith and values in a business environment is a necessity for all organizations.”

Elisa V. Gaspart

President Strategic Consulting Group

“Anyone in a leadership role has a responsibility to understand that leading today has changed. Critical shifts in social behavior have created new opportunities for leading.

Dan Greer showed our executive conference what it means to lead with integrity and understanding. He did not speak from theory. He knows from personal experience how to be an effective leader. He received the highest marks of any speaker at our annual conference.”

This issue is one of the hardest things I have to deal with in working with leaders who are wired to avoid conflict.  My only effective coaching strategy is to show them through their own experience that the longer they wait the higher the price.  So if you hate all the drama, deal with it early and the outcome will be well worth the risk.  Excellent post by Joel Garfinkle: “Avoiding or delaying a difficult conversation can hurt your relationships and create other negative outcomes. It may not feel natural at first, especially if you dread discord, but you can […]

It is often said in sports that how you prepare before the game will determine how well you play in the game.  I believe that is also true about meeting effectiveness as well.  The amount of work that is done before the meeting will determine how well your team can actually use collaboration to obtain great work.  This HBR post is excellent: “When your team is tasked with generating ideas to solve a problem, suggesting a brainstorming session is a natural reaction. But does that approach actually work?  Although the term “brainstorming” is now used as a generic term for having […]

After working with several organizations I have noticed a consistent pattern.  The perception by leaders of how things are going and why, often don’t match reality.  They have reached strong conclusions on very limited data.  This information gap is never more present when new leaders are brought in to fix the problem.  This HBR post has some great wisdom: “Organizations invest a lot of time and money in hiring the right CEO or senior executive to set a vision and make the changes in their company. Yet within the first 18 months, there’s a 50% chance the executive will leave […]

All of us at some point in time will have conflict and disagreements with someone else either in our personal lives or professionally at work.  These situations can be painful at times but seeking resolution is the only way to maintain positive momentum in your life. There are at least three critical steps that you must take if you want to restore the relationship and move forward in your own life.  Own Your Part—In every disagreement there are always two sides to the story.  I have never known a situation where there was not some responsibility for the problem with […]

One of the hardest things I have to deal with as an executive coach is to help any leader improve when in reality they are working in a toxic culture.  I remember Jim Collins describing it as a place where the truth can no longer be told because leaders keep shooting the messenger.  Trust has been lost and silos have been built to protect everyone from each other and the organization.  Liz Ryan is always excellent: “Just because you don’t like your job doesn’t mean you are any less talented, capable, smart or creative than you ever were. You are […]
