“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.”

I recently spoke on this topic for a new client.  We are all accustomed to what I called developmental and market change.  To address this level of change we must constantly lean into process improvement and in some cases execute a significant realignment.  However, disruption requires nothing less than dramatic transformation to survive much less thrive.  This post by Steve Olenski was spot on: “Disruption has become the rule among companies of all stripes, and it’s coming from every angle. When PwC surveyed CEOs for its annual chief executive study in 2014, the majority of respondents said changing consumer behaviors, […]

In normal business cycles change is always there and we are able to realign our company cultures to continue to be effective.  Today disruption is the norm with multiple parts of our value chain changing and never coming back.  Leaders must be dealers in hope that the future will be better than the present.  This Forbes post is excellent: “The average lifespan of a company in the S&P 500 was 67 years in the 1920s. Today, it’s under 15.  Companies have to adapt to new environments and situations faster than ever before, and the threat of macroeconomic turmoil and business […]

Sadly many leaders of very large companies are still trying to manage change or avoid it altogether.  Change is an ever present inevitable truth that simply cannot be avoided.  Leaders are dealers in the hope that our future beyond change will be better than our present reality.  This post by Forbes Coaches Council is worth the read: “Trite but true, change is the only constant. Having spent over 25 years working with leaders and companies to create change, I’ve decided we are approaching change all wrong. Our approach has always been focused on managing change. Our mindset needs to be […]

The inability to sustain margin may be the biggest challenge we face in this always on world we live in.  It seems like the demands of work and home always exceed our capacity to meet them.  Since so many factors are outside of my control, I must discipline myself to own the choices I can make.  This post by the Coaches Council was very helpful: “Stress is a part of life, especially business life. There are simply too many things that require your attention, which means that it’s far too easy to get overwhelmed, or worn down, by worries about […]

There is not an organization that I have worked with that does not want to see improvement.  Especially to overall productivity and the bottom line.  They talk a lot about change and moving the bar from just more efficiencies to the priority of strategic innovation.  However, few are willing to move beyond their own comfort zone to make it actually happen.  This Forbes post gives you the reasons why: “How often have you seen senior leaders challenge the status quo or ask employees to think outside the box? That’s the question the Harvard Business Review put to more than 1,000 […]
