VP, Field Execution West
Canada Bread Company Limited
"Carl facilitated the senior executive team through the use of a number of important change management tools. The purpose of the exercise was to ensure that the team was developing the best possible strategy to ensure that there was maximum buy-in for these initiatives.
The sessions were a combination of learning the tools and applying them to our own immediate situation.. These tools were practical and immediate. They helped us develop a vision for the initiative, identify stakeholders and their needs, and find ways to communicate the initiative in ways that people could understand. At the conclusion of these sessions we were able to put in place an action plan took into account stakeholder needs and concerns. As a trainer and facilitator, Carl more than satisfied our needs. With his skills and professionalism, he was able to quickly understand our situation and culture and customized sessions that had us working productively and in a focused way.
I would enthusiastically recommend him."
