"Leading for a Change provided real-world tools that can be used in any organization."
Dot Darling, President and Owner
Bredeweg Tax & Accounting


"Leading for a Change has been transformational for me. The materials provided and Ruth's style of presenting made this an applicable experience that stays open for reference, not just one you take back to the office and put on the shelf to collect dust. Thank you!
Shelli Karston, HR Director
American Medical Response


“To assist me with developing a 12-18 month strategic roadmap for my business, Dev and Ruth systematically walked me through all facets of my current business model. The tools we used were relevant, fresh, and leading edge. The scope was broad-ranging, yet focused.  The questions and resulting insights they provided were invaluable. In a short amount of time they were able to establish trust and rapport to the extent that we were working together as trusted thought partners…deeply engaged in inquiry around goals, current reality, and possibilities.

Overall, the day was a huge success. I walked away with a roadmap and relevant action steps directly linked to my bottom line. In addition to the plan, my time spent with them exponentially increased my capacity as a business owner for effective decision-making and planning.

I would highly recommend Dev and Ruth as trusted consultants and partners, and plan to work with them in the future.”
Debra Minton
President, Philanthropia Partners



“I have been in a leadership position for 11 years and, though I have generally been guided by the principle of leading by example, I have not had the opportunity until now to reflect on my leadership style, understanding my strengths and making solid practical improvements. The reading materials and discussions are tailored to my learning and communication style. With Ruth’s coaching, my leadership development work has been the most productive I’ve experienced.”
Amy Maes
Executive Director, Superior Alliance for Independent Living



“We called in Dev at a crucial time for EthnoGraphic Media—having just completed a major shift in strategic direction and built out a virtual team. This presented the perfect opportunity to better align our people and processes with organizational values and objectives. Dev and his team walked our entire company through an organizational assessment, leadership assessments, and individual assessments. They then facilitated a highly-engaging, two-day retreat to share findings, elicit feedback, encourage dialog, and create buy-in. Our follow up sessions, as well as ad hoc consultation, has helped ensure that recommendations and agreements are fully implemented. From our initial meetings through our most recent conversation, Dev and the team have consistently over-delivered. We truly value all they have done for us.”
Bill Oechsler
President, EthnoGraphic Media



“Dev is a very talented facilitator and a skilled educator in teaching others how to arrive at the best organizational decisions. Regardless of scale, the approach Dev provided to creating strategies and establishing actionable plans should be in every business person’s toolkit.”
