He created two recent solutions in response to a growing need of the clients he typically works with:

  1. The first is a Leadership and Team Transition Program that was designed to create an opportunity out of the typical disruption to business when a team changes leaders or team members.
  2. The second is a facilitated Cross-functional Team-working solution designed to create greater cohesion and inter-dependence between functional teams.
