Organizational Change Testimonials
"Values-Based Leadership makes most leadership training programs look like exercises in futility. What I liked best about this program is that it emphasizes the inner self, not just the external characteristics - it's about steering the great ship of life . . . not rearranging the deck chairs. If you're ready to use your inner strength and hidden leadership skills to achieve new goals for yourself, your family, organization or company, Values-Based Leadership will give you a jump start. I found the experience valuable and immediately useful."
Phelps Murdock, Former President and CEO, Kansas City Industrial Council and Bridging the Gap, Kansas City, MO
"With VBL, you can unlock the mystery of great leadership and put it to work every day. Discover your own values and ways to express them authentically using state-of-the-art skills."

"The Leadership Project gave me the ability to do many things at a more efficient and much higher level of sophistication than I ever imagined possible. This program gave me a new perspective in relating with people and myself."

"Kelly has the rare talent of merging employee issues with organizational issues to achieve a win/win situation. Through Values-Based Leadership (VBL), he has taught our organization a very useful set of tools to enhance relationships and effectively handle even the most sensitive of issues. I fully endorse Kelly as a person and as a professional, and I have great respect for his abilities and trust in his counsel."

"Nelson Marlborough Health Services has always prided itself on developing strong team work at a corporate level, but that was nothing compared to the development following the VBL programme. Now, departments are actively asking to participate in further programmes. I believe VBL is the key to the growth of a healthy, sustainable, fun organisation."
Glenys Baldick, Former CEO, Nelson Marlborough Health Services, Nelson, New Zealand
