“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.”

Some leaders are always coming up with new creative ideas that never seem to make it to the point of driving sustainable results.  Others kill it daily on execution but never look up enough to see where the organization is actually going.  Both are extremely important and great leaders find a way for their organizations to excel in both.  This HBR post is excellent: “For decades, we’ve often thought of leadership profiles in unique buckets—two popular varieties were the “visionaries”, who embrace strategy and think about amazing things to do, and the “operators”, who get stuff done. We intuitively knew […]

When I started working with a new large client last year I was introduced to Michael Porter’s HBR work on strategy.  I found his findings challenging to understand at first but later realized just how critical his principles are to every organization.  To put it simply being a mile wide and an inch deep is not a good place to be in any market.  This post by  Ann Latham is excellent: “A good strategic framework provides focus by limiting the number of directions the organization runs. You’d be foolish to try to extend all your products while simultaneously expanding all […]

One of the greatest challenges in leadership is to take the hours of planning within a small group of leaders at the top and drive it down throughout the entire organization without loosing effectiveness.  Great innovative ideas that come out of a small group of executive leaders sometimes simply don’t work well in the real world with execution constraints. This HBR post is excellent: “Execution is an odd word. On the one hand, it means “the carrying out of a plan or course of action.” On the other, it means, “the carrying out of a death sentence.” When leaders “execute […]

It’s really amazing how long we have been talking about empowering people and yet we consistently miss the best ideas coming from the people on the front lines.  In essence we talk a lot about knowledge workforce and yet we still walk like all the best ideas come from the top down.  This HBR post nails it: “In a recent survey, Bain & Company found that just 2% of companies are successful in achieving their sustainability goals. While this can be disheartening, it doesn’t have to be this way.  The company I lead, Ingersoll Rand, is a 146-year-old organization that […]

One of the best books I have read on developing a strategic plan and all that is involved in the execution of that plan was written by Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan called Execution.  It is a must read for any organization that uses teams to accomplish planning and execution. A strategy is the key steps or methodology that you are going to use to accomplish your goals or mission.  Many times the goal seems to be clear and necessary but the breakdown occurs at the point of determining how we are going to accomplish what we want to do.
