…For Sales Focused Teams:

 “…Ted worked with our organization on several occasions. We were always so pleased to have as a consultant on our leadership team and projects. He often provided insight on how to negotiate with individuals based on personality, the end result being stellar employee performances. Ted was always a complete asset in this arena.  He would often speak to groups of sales people about the importance of intention, attention, clarity and attitude. Ted’s “Art of Pushing Back model” addressed negotiation, managing stressful situations and how successful individuals and high performers approach these types of obstacles to their advantage.

In addition to the group work, Ted worked with my sales force individually to fine-tune each person’s skills.  Ted assisted me and the other managers with the tools for customizing individualized pro-active successful behaviors with the staff.

In my opinion, Ted’s insight and testing methods into individual psyches was nothing short of phenomenal. His ability to relate to and motivate large groups of people was also excellent. I give Ted my highest recommendation possible! Any company or organization would surely benefit to have him involved.”

…For Technology Focused Teams:

"...Ted’s consulting with our team led to decreased deployments from 33 days to 23 days where facilities existed, and down to 7 days were facilities were pre-positioned. Our on-time performance increased from below 50% to greater than 95%, and we exceeded our goal for sales by 20% over the 15 month project. Units installed or on order increased by 428% over the quantities installed at the beginning of the project and we were held out as "the example" with our largest customer on how to do business. The numbers speak for themselves - Ted’s methods work!
