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.

I would highly recommend Eric Douglas as an executive coach. His knowledge and experience as a coach were invaluable to me during a critical period of organizational change. He pushed me to ask challenging questions about myself and my organization that led to improved effectiveness. And his guidance was invaluable as I made strategic decisions that took into account the fluid landscape, windows of opportunity, and greater connection and collaboration with other groups.
