"I headed up the editorial team of CNNfn. We worked with a diverse group of managers who were promoted into leadership roles with no management training. Because they were in high pressure jobs, they communicated with each other very abruptly and protected their own turf. He helped us to understand and respect each other's diverse points of views and work together as a team. We did this in a very short period of time. It was an amazing experience." Debra Kocher, VP, CNN
"Stuart trained our staff at a tough time of layoffs and low morale. He energized the team and had them re-ignite their passion for their jobs and working with each other. In particular, he had them understand how we filter communication based on what we value and how that might not be how the other guy sees it. This was crucial for opening up communication and having our teams effectively work with each other." Craig Forman, former CEO MyPrimeTime.
