Leading Resources was instrumental in leading us through challenging strategic decisions. Eric Douglas was masterful in balancing his role as facilitator and corporate advisor. I would recommend LRI to anyone.
The counsel I received from LRI on communication and change management allowed me to successfully lead my organization through critical decision points. LRI helped me ask the right questions and assess whether my organizational capacities matched those required to drive our desired strategies.
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.
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.
This is my second experience with LRI in a different company. And, if I was ever to move to a third company (and I’m not planning on it), I’d call on LRI again. I have that much confidence in them.
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.
Based on their work with public broadcasting CEOs, LRI’s expertise is a must for any organization that wants and needs to resolve tough issues.
We used LRI to assist our agency with an employee assessment survey this summer. LRI was very accommodating and easy to work with. BOE is very happy to be a client and will use LRI’s expertise again.
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.
Eric Douglas has accomplished what many in his profession have not: he’s mastered the ability to under-engineer the highly complex organizational change process. By simplifying the process and employing an intimate and open approach, he’s earned the trust and respect of our entire executive team. His success in identifying, distilling, and simplifying issues allows him to provide our team with a sophisticated, yet pragmatic array of easy-to-access tools that are tailored to our needs and that we’re able to put to work right away.
