I was introduced to Ellen Bryson and the CEO Advantage program approximately 8 years ago. During my career, I have been exposed to many strategic planning programs, but have found Ellen’s program to be outstanding. Simply, her program creates immediate results but also long-term benefits. It develops very strong communication and focus for the management team but also teaches how to cascade the plans down to everyone within the organization. Ellen is excellent at leading the sessions, explaining the processes necessary for success and following up on the results to keep everyone “on track”. Her leadership style promotes a comfort level that allows individuals to “open up” yet Ellen is excellent at challenging individuals and teams to promote higher achievement within the organization. I highly recommend Ellen!
