The BreakThru Alliance

"The BreakThru Alliance completed a leadership development program that was very well received by our executive team and over 200 managers and supervisors. Richard and his team helped us every other year to implement our employee survey process and we call on The BreakThru Alliance for change management and other HR related initiatives. Yamaha has worked with Richard over 10 years on a variety of business and HR challenges. He helped create Yamaha's vision, mission, and values statements that have stood with us for 10 years. He helped identify and document our first HR strategy 8 years ago. I do not hesitate in recommending The BreakThru Alliance in the areas of leadership and management development, employee engagement, and HR strategy."

"Richard coached me, guided me, and opened up my thinking about life and my career. He was instrumental in helping me grow. I value the time I had with Richard when he was my official "executive coach" and I'm pleased that we still talk regularly. His no-nonsense advice based on a wealth of experience beats out any flavor of the month principles found in business bestsellers.

The BreakThru Alliance

"Richard has helped us on several projects over the past 8 years. The difference between "Data" and "Information" is a key subtly to success on many "measurement to manage" initiatives. Richard understands that of course but more importantly, he can communicate it to business leaders. That ability to move seamlessly between HR and Executive mentalities keeps projects online and productive."

-- Rod Swartwood, Sr. Director of Talent Acquisition, First American Corporation
