"Our team is humming so well that it frees me up to think more strategically."
Top executive of a global investment firm
"In our phone conference last week Tim (a junior team member) took issue with me and we aired our differences. After thinking about Tim's thoughts and concerns I changed my mind. By doing so we averted a disaster and sharply improved our client relationship. Before Leaders Leading Leaders®(L3) this would have never happened."
Executive leader of a team launching a new product
"The L3 program enables us to do more with less by accessing hidden resources that are free and infinite."
Top executive of a manufacturing company in Canada
"It's hard to find one word to describe Jeff Spahn's role. Educator, facilitator, coach all fit, but not completely. The fact is that by being all those at the same time, Jeff is remarkably effective at getting people to think about situations from the angles with which they may be least comfortable."
Sir David Brown, Chairman, Motorola UK
"I tend to be cynical about these types of events, but I just want to come straight and say that this has been by far the best use of our time of any offsite event."
Communications Team Executive
"Thanks again for your GREAT work!! Board members are still talking about their experiences. I think we definitely accomplished what we set out to do and I greatly appreciate the super contributions you made to this success."
Chairman of a University Board
"Our Board turn a very important corner. It's now pointed in a new direction and will never be able to turn back!"
"Our meeting on Friday was clearly the best one we have had. Your skills and coaching have been very, very beneficial to my
leadership team and myself. Your commitment and professionalism is a great
inspiration to me Jeff. A number of these tools and concepts are really
starting to come together."
Leader of a manufacturing team charged with global order fulfillment
"Consultants tell us we need to talk and meet more regularly, but no one gives us a practical process for more collaborative conversations, productive meetings, and inclusive decision making. This program is exceptional because it addresses the missing link between empowerment and effectiveness!"
Senior Vice President, Nuveen Investments
"If you want your team to perform like never before-passionately engaged with a lot of thoughtfulness, then L3 is for you. The reason this happens is that this system gets all the leaders feeling like they have a significant part in thinking, goals, decisions and execution. People become engaged in work. They believe their input and challenge is welcomed."
Executive leader of the world's top team in their industry
"The L3 program really works! Significant changes within our team include: more people opening up, greater enthusiasm for getting things done, more trust and less worry about being undermined, and consistent consensus. The bottom line is we do more in less time."
Executive leader of a global financial company
"Our organization began working with L3 about a year and a half ago. We are a much better functioning organization thanks to L3. We are in the business of giving investment advice; L3 has provided many tools to improve our ability to share our expertise with our clients. Our clients are now more willing to engage in open dialogue with us. I recommend L3 to any organization that is working to increase their ability to perform at a higher level and become more interdependent."
Bob Smith, President Spero-Smith Investors
"L3 develops leaders and builds a strong foundation for effective succession planning by activating deeper levels of exchange and promoting shared decision making."
