In 2008 I was fortunate enough to participate in one of Integral Institute’s Leadership Seminars that was facilitated by Bert Parlee and other world-class integrally informed thinkers.

Bert is not only a world-class professional trainer, but he does so with a confidence that is complemented by highly attuned interpersonal sensitivity and empathic attunement.

Our “next generation” management team training program has been a much smoother process due to Bert Parlee’s expert leadership. There is no doubt in the owners’ mind that Bert has been successful in ways that went beyond the current owners’ thinking and training methods for their next generation team. We are delighted that things are working much better than expected due to Bert’s leadership.
Bert has helped my senior management team and me personally. He aided each of our executives to become more aware of our strengths and weaknesses, and how to better play to each other’s strengths. He enabled us to see different options to resolve conflicts that we alone could not see. He assisted me personally by encouraging me to grow into the person he believed I could become. His wisdom has helped me see life another way; a fundamentally more beneficial way.
Do your leaders have the training they need?
Leadership training builds your management team’s bench strength. It paves the way for top performance, smooth leadership succession, and bottom-line effectiveness.
I offer customized leadership training to your specific needs through workshops, seminars, keynotes, coaching, mentoring, consulting, and facilitated team-building.
My favorite part of what I do is working with clients and their teams around the world to gain the skills and insight to achieve more than they thought possible through creative leadership. I enjoy helping my clients to do many things including:
- Learn to lead with influence and produce game-changing results

- Take action and produce powerful results
- Create and use high visibility to extend influence and make an impact
- Inspire others to execute and accomplish a significant amount, without the need to use power of authority to get things done
Call out box – It’s not getting any easier, is it? Standard business. Yeah, right. Your customers demand more. Your team demands more. Your spouse and family demand more. A lot more.
You’ve come to the right place if your organization needs people to work together more efficiently, to be more productive, to solve a crisis … or perhaps you have a great team that could be better. If this sounds like the situation you face every day, I can help.
Every project is unique. Every client is also unique. Each comes with a different set of goals and constraints. I thrive in providing highly customized coaching to teams that want to get on the road to producing game changing results both professionally and personally.
