Roger's work with the senior staff at the Spokane Symphony was a big boost to the executive and supervisory effectiveness which we all discovered were needed. None of us had received much formal training when we were promoted to key positions. Roger's experience, publications, and patient personal approach helped our effectiveness a great deal.

Roger has a coaching style that best serves the participant. He has a keen understanding and rich information library of the issues and opportunities, which growth oriented people can tap into. With his coaching, I discovered new ways to view and analyze my strengths and competencies related to personal and professional development.
After twenty years in management, the last ten in executive management, I thought I had all the tools and had faced all the issues. I was wrong. The Leadership Coaching Development Experience helped me look at myself differently, ask new questions and provided me with some innovative tools and thinking. I found myself using this newly discovered knowledge from the very beginning of the program.
Rogers's leadership development process helped me change the way I viewed my organization. I now have a better understanding on what I should be concerned about and how to more effectively communicate with my group. The leadership development process also provided me better insight on how to detect problems, seize opportunities and take advantage of early wins in innovative thinking.
