“Dan has an aptitude for leadership coaching and understanding clients.  That makes him stand out. He pays close attention to what you say and captures the essence of your needs, in order to offer advice that will promote attainment of development milestones and enhance professional growth. In other words, he doesn’t just listen, but he also makes sure that the time spent coaching creates real value.  Dan has been a valuable partner.”

Jennifer Bullard Phillips
Director of Human Resources, Virent 

“We asked Dan to assist us in the creation of a performance review process and template that incorporated our core values and new brand attributes, in order to let staff know how they were doing throughout the year. He collaborated with our consulting partner and marketing firm to create a tool that effectively and fairly measures individual performance across our company.

As a result, staff feel their individual goals align their effort to the bigger picture of the company’s growth.  They now have meaningful conversations with their manager on how well they are progressing.  All in all, Dan delivered a quality result and on time.”

Mark Taber, President
Wind River Financial 

“Dan did a great job preparing and delivering team development training for leaders of our organization. He met with us before the training and attended the previous session to ensure a consistent flow. He customized the training based on our organization’s strategic plan and the feedback he heard from participants before the training began. He delivered on what we requested. If he didn’t, it was because we didn’t request it!”

Kimberly Noyce
Learning & Development Manager, State Bank of Cross Plains

“I started Toppers Pizza 25 years ago as a single restaurant, and today Toppers is one of the fastest growing pizza companies in the US, with 75 locations in 12 states.  In order to lead a vital organization into the future, I consider it critical to grow personally and professionally every day.  TEC is very valuable for me.  By interacting regularly with other successful CEOs in a transparent and open relationship, I not only learn, but also feel the challenge, respect, and connectedness that you would hope for in a strong peer group.  I am smart about how I spend my time.  I am not involved with TEC because I don’t have other things I could be doing;  I do it because it pays.”

 Scott Gittrich
President, Toppers Pizza, Inc.

“Dan was an outstanding facilitator at a strategic planning session held with our management team. He is engaging, a great listener and extremely thought-provoking. I would highly recommend Dan to others.”

Tina Fuhs
Director of Human Resources, Wismarq Corporation

“Dan is a thoughtful and results-oriented coach for management and leadership development. He asks the hard questions while guiding people to find their own strength to meet challenges and improve leadership ability. Dan develops trust as a basis of relationship, leading to the safety required for critical insight. The work that Dan requires of his clients can be challenging, but he is a pleasure to work with and produces great results.”
