"I have worked with Erik for the past five years and found his insight into organizations and key players immensely valuable and absolutely critical to developing and maintaining communication processes throughout an organization. His tools are predictive, provocative, synergistic and truly add value at a far greater level than I've experienced with other consultants. Erik has been indispensable in resolving conflict, particularly in the “C” level Suites! During pivotal times of change, reorganization and restructuring Erik is an invaluable strategic partner."
*Sam Robinson, Chief Executive Officer, Allvus
"Erik helped us (as a couple) regain clarity of thought during a time of great stress and anxiety, by asking questions that peeled away the layers of complexity to reveal the core of the issues, which were much easier to deal with than the mess he distilled the issues from. With regained perspective, we were able to make the decisions necessary to get our family out of the situation(s) causing the stress.
*Nadine Paulin, Chief of Staff, Simulation Product Group, Autodesk
"Erik is a thinking partner who helps organizations take a clear-eyed look at themselves. He works with patience and empathy, providing the right blend of process and urgency to drive needed change. Erik helps unpack complex problems, deal with emotional reactions and has an uncanny thinking to get to root causes, both at the individual and organizational level."
*Alan Manning, Executive Vice-President, Planetree International
