People

It was from my working relationship with Lee that I learned how to create a sense of community, to more fully give and receive appreciation, and to celebrate success.
Steve Schumacher
Regional Vice President, First Energy
Reading, PA
Lee led us with great skill and a spirit which immediately made everyone realize that here was one who truly cared, and was deeply committed to helping them fulfill the goals which had been set forth.
Don Zeiter
Pastor, St Andrew’s Church
New Berlinville, PA
He was able to engage us with creative approaches and techniques — he made each of us, even our less vocal members, comfortable sharing our thoughts.  And in the end, we had a set of strategic themes built on consensus that we now call our own. 
Frank Zukas
President, Schuylkill Economic Development Corporation

Purpose

This man is able to influence others much more deeply than many leaders are able to do… His trustworthiness is visible and palpable in a quiet way, and this breeds trust among those with whom he has contact. Above all the people I know, he lives a most balanced and purposeful life, clear about his reason for being here and for serving others. That translates into being able to help other individuals and organizations see with greater clarity their own purposes and pathways, as well.
Victoria n Briant
President, CultureWorks, Inc.
McKinney, TX
I remember the courage and flexibility Lee demonstrated in our first seminar together…he confidently abandoned our agenda to meet the needs of the group. When our needs were met, he skillfully brought the group back on track, enriching the fundamental concepts of the seminar AND did so by using the little detour! Only a true professional could accomplish that in such a meaningful way.

Progress

Lee is one of the best meeting facilitators I’ve ever worked with. He is able to help align a group around a common theme, eliminate preconceptions and resolve personality conflicts. By making each member of the team feel important, he draws out the best each has to offer. His ability to help us see the value of our own diversity has helped my teams create innovative and practical results.

Retired Director of Materials and Services, GPU Energy
Reading, PA
During our retreat Lee was able to quickly discern key issues and differing styles of board members. During the course of our day, he helped us to illuminate and focus on goals and policy. Additionally, Lee was invaluable in raising my consciousness about my leadership skills and our group dynamics.
Bette Slayton
President, Pennsylvania Economic Development Association
What has impressed me about Lee is his ability to adapt to unique situations with poise and energy, never backing down from a challenge. He has time and again created growth in the individuals he has touched, and in so doing, enabled the organization to learn, grow, and adapt to change.
