Consulting Client Comments

What a great (and exhausting) experience it was to participate in the RPI exercise.  I highly recommend we identify other functions to use RPI on.

I am so glad we went through this exercise and feel validated by all of the items discussed and presented.  They dynamics of the group was terrific, and we all fed off each other very well.

I know that we produced a document that will serve us well in our quest to change how we do things around here.  Bill will have a pretty good map to show the groups we'll assemble to make the recommended changes.

I thought Ron did an excellent job in coordinating, facilitating, and actively listening.

When I was initially asked to participate, I groaned a little wondering what the value would be given the time commitment.  I can say I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome.  It was very good to get to work with folks that I normally would not get to and build some relationships.  They're a great group of people.  Although it was a lot of work I came away with the feeling that the time was productive and the results will be used positively.

I absolutely believe that the results we receive from the annual employee survey has helped us become the successful company we are.  That information is invaluable in shaping what we attend to as management, leading to employee engagement levels that we could not previously achieve.

Thank you for the coaching you have given me.  You listened well, you pushed me hard, and you helped me see what the options were.  

Ron Sarazin is AMAZING!  He’s been working with our company for 8 years in a variety of consultative roles.  He’s worked with several of our executives and with our management team.  He also facilitates our annual employee climate assessment.  

We have worked with Ron for several years at this company and I had the opportunity to work with Ron for a couple of years before that.  He consistently nails our needs.  

We used Ron for a key note presentation to our executive staff several years ago. We then had him address the entire staff and now we simply keep bringing him in to facilitate retreats, help us get past rough patches in our strategies, and help us work our team issues.  Everyone here appreciates his approach and feels comfortable working through issues with him as a guide.  Some of us secretly call him "Father Ron."

Ron provided customer service training for several of our departments.  We liked him so well we had him address our franchisees at our annual meeting as the key note speaker.  We then engaged Ron to help us make all that training real...providing consulting and feedback.

I am committed to providing the best in client service. We offer professional and friendly assistance to our clients for whatever they may need. That is why we are proud of our continued success in satisfying one client after the other. Don't just take our word for it - read through a sample of testimonials!

Course Participant's Comments

I love how knowledgeable the instructor (Ron) is. He is able to continually draw from personal experiences to help illustrate concepts and always asks questions that drive critical thinking. Ron is also very good at ensuring students share their experiences so we can attribute lessons learned to real life applications and then discuss as a group. He is a captivating storyteller and keeps you on your toes through the entire course. I highly value every single second I was able to learn from Ron - he is a fantastic instructor.
