Here are a few of the comments we've received about our exciting and lasting client work!
Mark Gross, President of Leadership Services, offered a very useful and
enjoyable program at our packed January National Association of Women Business
Owners (NABOW) meeting on How to Lead and Motivate Your Team in a
Performance-based Economy. One of the key points he made was that
motivation is emotional, and that change requires leaders to support their team
emotionally in all its forms--from enthusiasm to empathetic listening. That
often requires leaders to overcome their fears in the face of the kind of the
economic challenges we face today to motivate themselves in order to motivate
their teams. "

"Mark Gross and his team assisted RCIM
in structuring a multifaceted communications plan for our
business. Some of the most valuable results were delivered
though support from our sister companies in growing our business.
The proof is in the 16 new resort management contracts negotiated
in 1998....66% of the leads leading to these new opportunities
came from our colleagues at the other RCI companies."

"Leadership Services has a unique expertise
in mentoring executive development. While you learn finance,
organizational structures, strategic planning and many other
things in college, where do you learn the day-to-day organization,
reporting process, personal effectiveness and development
of accountable people so critical in business today? I found
myself with this challenge as an executive with 11 years experience
and an MBA, but without an understanding of how to develop
an accountable organization. Mentored by Mark Gross and Bill
Terry, I learned to understand each person's motivation and
create an environment to allow them to flourish and reach

that is meaningful to THEM!"
