Reviews of Facilitator Engagements:
Peter helped our Board of Directors work through a major leadership change. He quickly focused a divided board on what needed to be done and how to proceed. His facilitation skills, political judgment, and credibility enabled us to reach a difficult consensus. Getting our team moving in the right direction was the turning point.

Peter is a skilled moderator and facilitator. His opening remarks set the stage for lively and informative discussions. He provided impartial "outsider" observation of the current situation at Kaiser Permanente, which was invaluable in helping us to refocus our efforts.

Peter’s opening comments provoked a discussion at our board retreat that brought us to a new level of thinking. He encouraged us to go beyond what other health plans are doing and provided innovative ideas about how to expand our business. Peter’s session helped immensely. His message was very important.

The true value of Peter’s contribution is the intellectual content he brings to the table. He is a skilled facilitator and was instrumental in guiding the board’s process to reexamine assumptions about our direction. Peter described important trends that needed to be understood and suggested ways to address them. He is highly effective with executive management teams who need to see the big picture and to think strategically.

Awesome! Peter did a fantastic job. Our healthcare accounts and sales teams really “got it”.

Peter facilitated a very productive brainstorming session. He knew what information to draw out of our group and what ideas to develop to help us reach a conclusion. It was great to have a mediator who kept us focused on our goal, without bias or prejudice.
