“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.”

Great leaders have come to the realization that it is more important to develop people than it is to deliver results.  This will empower their people to use their competencies and significantly increase the capacity of the organization.  Empowerment is also directly linked to job satisfaction and a major factor in retention.  This HBR post is excellent: “One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading. As a new manager you can get away with holding on to work. Peers and bosses may even admire your willingness to keep “rolling up your […]

Effective leaders are no longer the person who sits at the head of the table and answers all of the important questions.  Today the best leaders have developed the ability to ask great questions that empower other people to be fully engaged.  Collaboration by its very nature requires a conversation and this Forbes post is spot on: “It’s humbling to ask questions. After all, the moment that you ask a question is the moment you reveal what you don’t know. To some, asking questions is a death-blow to their ego, while to others, it’s a stepping stone to clarity. In […]

Leveraging the best productivity practices and empowering teams are great strategies to drive results.  However, what we must always avoid is giving higher value to efficiency over effectiveness.  This means that the Why of what we are doing will always be more important than the How.  This Forbes post drives this truth home: “A few years ago, Simon Sinek made a huge splash in the business world when he delivered his TEDx Talk, “Start With Why — How Great Leaders Inspire Action.”  His claim is that every team on the planet knows what they do, some know how they do it, […]

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 […]
