"Michael managed a training group in a different city from the home office - which always presents challenges with regard to continuity, relevance and effective collaboration. Michael is an excellent communicator, keeping all parties informed across geographies and continually checking that there is alignment of programs across locations and job functions. He is consistently ahead of the curve in anticipating client needs and responsive to changing priorities. In addition, he is talented manager of staff, supporting, developing and giving continual feedback. He is well respected by his staff." ~Nancy Petaja, client VP Learning & Development
“To be perfectly honest, I was not looking forward to this program based on past experiences. Team building, coaching, communication, blah, blah, blah. But you changed my mind and engaged me which is probably the most telling evidence of your success this week. Any time you can get a “resistor” to buy into concepts being presented, you have succeeded in spades.” ~Gary Kehoe, teambuilding participant
"I know I speak for the whole group when I say that it was a life changing experience for all who attended." ~John Finneran, client CFO
"Michael has done a great job in putting together a world class training curriculum, rolling out an intensified training schedule and has assisted all of us in developing ourselves and our staff. Michael is making our training group into a “best in class” model for other areas of Chase to emulate." ~Ed Van Valen, client President
"Michael is an exceptional HR professional, whose contributions raise the effectiveness of our business and the team around him. Michael has outstanding organizational development skills, successfully implementing formal training programs, informal coaching & mentoring, and managing difficult employee performance issues. His hiring and staffing approach has improved recruitment and retention of top-quality talent at our firm. He has led numerous cross functional initiatives, providing capable leadership under extremely challenging business circumstances." ~JP Arcuri, client CIO
"Michael is a versatile HR/Learning & Development executive who has proven himself to be flexible in the face of all kinds of business challenges. He is very adept at building relationships and he has been described as someone who "wears well" meaning that he can adapt his style to to any situation or individual he encounters. He is both creative and reliable and has demonstrated the ability to make good, well-grounded assessments and decisions. Clearly, I would recommend Michael without reservation." ~Sharon Machrone, client Group Vice President, Human Resources
