What the world needs now is direct, clear, but humane communication. Neither strident voices nor tone-deaf listening will get us to better understanding. Straight Talk® tells us how to bring democratic and felicitous dialogue to what intrigues us most.

Reg Murphy President and CEO

PHH

We had a difficult challenge facing us in articulating a clear vision for PHH. LRI did a great job in getting input from all the participants while at the same time keeping us on track. We accomplished the goal of agreeing on a future direction. I don’t think we would have gotten there without LRI’s help. Thanks again for your facilitation and leadership.

George Kilroy, CEO

Retinal Consultants

The elite team at LRI has developed clear and effective tools to tackle even the most onerous management problems. Their uncanny ability to sharpen focus and facilitate communication has been a great asset to our company.

Joel Pearlman, Managing Partner

Sacramento Ballet

LRI is outstanding! Eric Douglas led the Sacramento Ballet through a challenging project of developing its first-ever comprehensive written strategic plan at a critical junction in the history of the organization. Eric’s leadership skills were superb as he worked to enlist the support of all stakeholders and facilitated discussions that allowed the organization to put into words its hopes and dreams for the next several years, while helping the project team remain focused on keeping the objectives realistic, achievable and measurable. I highly recommend LRI without any reservation.

Robert Slater, Jr., President, Board of Directors

University of California Press

LRI helped us experience a real change in the way that we do planning and resolve problems. It made it possible for us to say exactly what we wanted to say, and for others to hear exactly what we said. Looking back, I wonder why we didn’t do this before.

James H Clark, Director and Publisher

WETA

I would encourage any CEO to go through this process. In a very short time, we were able to clarify our expectations and unify the staff around common goals. Now, we have consensus about the next steps we need to take and performance metrics that will let us know when we reach our goals. We’ve really moved forward as an organization.
