IBSeveral weeks ago the In Business staff informed me that Loichinger Advantage LLC would be recognized as a finalist for the 2016 Executive Choice Awards.  Last week the awards were made public.

Finalists and winners are chosen by a select group of Greater Madison business executives, the winners of the annual ECA program represent the top business-to-business vendors in Greater Madison. Since they are chosen from a fill-in-the-blank survey, you know they are companies that have achieved top-of-mind awareness in local executive suites.

Imagine my surprise, excitement, then sheer gratitude.  Thank you.
I am humbled when I look at the other finalists and winner in our category – Management Training Company. Then I think of the very talented firms and consultants who aren’t on the list.
Much of this award goes to the clients who trusted us, the colleagues that partnered with us, the firms who referred us, and many others.  The Madison area is a dynamic community where great things happen when leaders lead and people come together.
More than anything, it confirms a statement made years ago by Warren Bennis, the grandfather of leadership development – – – Leadership matters, and more than anything, leadership is about the relationships we build.
Amen Warren Amen.
