Eric’s knowledge in system building was effortlessly detailed, practical and eye-opening. Only half-way into our phone call I went from deer-lights to a clear sense of direction on what are my steps to make sure I have a successful system put in place, in detail and without feeling overwhelmed. If you are looking to hire, start a team, get a project done or anything with a system, I highly encourage you to get Eric onboard to help you with gaps you aren’t seeing.
When I think of Eric, the words “intelligent,” “curious,” “daring,” and “resilient” come immediately to my mind. I hired Eric to serve as a Training Manager within TDN, the Training and Development Network for Nielsen’s US Field organization. At that time, the training function within Nielsen had been underfunded, non-strategic, inconsistent and unstructured; the basics of an effective training organization – knowledge management, curriculum development, assessment integrity, and trainer competency – required reimagination, reengineering and rebuilding. TDN needed leaders who possessed the talent, judgement, and grit to motivate and direct the actions of frontline learning professionals and collaborate together to build an effective, high performing learning organization. In Eric, I found those qualities in abundance. On the people front, Eric is a talented talent multiplier, mentor, and coach; he is a master at being 100% candid and 100% caring. Not only did he quickly build a high performing team from the ground up, his team’s engagement level, rated by the Gallup Engagement Survey method, rated in the highest category across Nielsen globally. In terms of reengineering the TDN system, Eric demonstrated a magnificent knack for creating processes that were scalable, sustainable and could be launched quickly. Eric recognizes when a system is under-developed and easily builds it up; he also recognizes when processes are over-engineered and easily clears out the clutter. TDN was wildly successful in achieving its mission of “developing capability in individuals, teams, and the organization;” much of the success can be traced directly to Eric and his talents.
Eric is a passionate and energetic individual who also goes the extra mile for his customers! While working with him, he always worked to meet and exceed the customers’ expectations! He is very personable and a delight to be around. Always forward looking and problem solving, and his level of dedication his producing quality in his work, is unparalleled! A great motivator and leader!
Eric has been working with me this year and has coached me with diligence and dedication that I’ve never had before from a coach. He has a concise, do-able answer to each of my questions, His keen listening and genuine concern for my success and business vision has led him to provide structured exercises and practices, producing concrete increased revenue while challenging me to step into leadership. His coaching style is succinct and he tells it straight; this has allowed me to push myself and my business infrastructure and day to day activities forward in marketing, client outreach and administration. When we started working together in March, I had one large contract. Now I am looking at least 3 concurrently and more on down the pike. My business income has increased, as has the courage to reorganize my daily activities and allow success to happen. I’m very grateful for his time and willingness and would highly recommend Eric.
