While I was CLO, I asked Rick to design and facilitate a number of critical meetings intended to surface problems, generate solution options and create alignment around a preferred solution. …His designs were always on target, and just as important, they were simple to implement and “felt right” to the participants in the meetings.

As one observer of a meeting noted, ‘My favorite session was the open dialogue and Q&A with the leadership team. I was quite skeptical about it, thinking the participants would be too intimidated to join in the conversation. After about a minute of silence, it opened up. Participants joined the circle one by one and asked their questions. The leadership team answered with transparency and honesty. It was fabulous!’
