Client Testimonials

Leif was a pleasure to meet and really connected with the group. Most of us were a little intimidated and unsure of what questions to pose. As soon as we started the apprehension melted away and it was a great session...I would strongly recommend him for any future dates/needs. The timing was perfect, but we could have spent the whole day with him!

Leif… was often sought out as an expert by many teams and individuals for leadership, team building and collaboration expertise..it’s crucial our leaders set the bar for collaboration and communication with many different teams across the studio. Leif not only was able to achieve this, he was able to level up leaders around him through mentorship and with an approach that was adaptable to each different leader.

In project after project, from one role to another, he had an uncanny ability to find work, fill gaps, and create opportunities. He unblocked approaches and provided options to his organization… I am in awe of people like Leif - those who have the capability to do nearly anything, yet the humility to support others’ objectives. Those who have the experience to be an administrator but the hunger to remain a craftsperson. There is no organization on the planet which would not benefit from his presence in any capacity.
