During the summer of 2015 we began a strategic planning process with LRI, specifically with Karin Bloomer. This was our first attempt at an encompassing five-year plan. I was amazed by how quickly Karin assimilated our culture, processes, and critical priorities. Karin expertly pushed us through the conversations we needed to have – some of them not easy. I’m happy to report we are extremely pleased with the result. We completed the project on time – and on budget. I highly recommend Karin for future engagements.

Early Edge California

The counsel I received from LRI on communication and change management allowed me to successfully lead my organization through critical decision points. My coach helped me ask the right questions and assess whether my organizational capacities matched those required to drive our desired strategies.

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.
