"Michael Gelb’s coaching, training, and consulting were profoundly helpful in forging high performance teams in two very different organizations. First at C & P Telephone where we collaborated to transform the monopolistic heritage of the Bell System into a competitive, contemporary communications company, and then at NPR where we focused on developing a more entrepreneurial culture and creating a more diverse workforce while lobbying Congress to continue it’s support for public radio. In both of these assignments, I was impressed with Michael’s ability to understand our business challenges and to tailor his techniques and methods to help us solve our most important problems."
