"Quite simply, if our partners are unable to continue growing, we would stop growing. After a thorough evaluation and assessment process, we chose Phil. This turned out to be the best decision we could have made. He has helped contribute to the success of our channel. Indeed, we have realized 18% to 22% growth in a market that is only growing at 4%. I would strongly encourage anyone seeking to achieve similar results to make good use of Phil's expertise."

I have personally witnessed Phil’s work with senior executives and middle managers; the feedback and results underscore his effectiveness. He’s very direct, challenges the status quo, yet our team is comfortable and at ease with him. I strongly recommend leveraging Phil to develop highly effective leaders in any organization."

“Phil’s process and experience is the key element that has enabled us to create an employee-empowered culture; it’s also the key to our growth. This has enabled us to engage our team more fully, create sustainable management, and ensure long-term growth as opposed to a quick fix. In the first 25 months of working with Phil, we doubled our revenue and tripled our earnings, and that was 12 years ago. We continue our partnership with Phil today; he’s a great leader, coach and a genuine human being!”

"Phil came in, assessed the situation objectively and factually, developed best practices for us, taught us how to teach, worked with our channel independently and separately.  The result… we're a better company! He's a trusted advisor, a great friend, and a great partner, and I cannot imagine being in business without his partnership."

Working with Phil has been a game-changer for my business and myself. In just a short amount of time, I’m on track to double my billings this year. With Phil’s guidance, I’ve gained extreme clarity regarding the priorities that drive, not only growth, but sustainable growth. He’s so much more than a business coach, though. From our calls, he’s been able to pinpoint the “head trash” (aka my insecurities) keeping me stuck, whether I’m speaking about them or not. My confidence has skyrocketed from leveraging Phil’s experience and insights, whether they involve my strategy, "self-talk” or creating  clarity regarding the exact ROI my clients experience as a result of our work together. I’m so grateful to work with Phil, and I highly recommend his coaching for anyone ready to break through a plateau!

"ROI is a key business driver for many business decisions that are made on a daily basis.  Phil’s contribution is clearly additive to our earnings growth; our ROI on leveraging Phil as a development resource is significant. He builds upon and leverages all other factors within our corporate system. He understands best practices and his owner/operator experience fuels his ability to assist in developing many of our leaders and in gaining alignment and engagement quickly. Phil knows how to add value to an OEM and their channel partners.  He epitomizes being a true “partner.”

"When I started working with Phil, I expected general strategy, and I ended up with so much more. His guidance revolves around not only creating a more successful executive but also a more successful person. He wants you to be effective, confident and happy. Great listener, always empathetic, deep experience; he’s a great coach and mentor."
