What Clients Say

Dave.VucinaDave Vucina
Former CEO, Wayport Inc.



Barry had us redefine our objectives and what was possible to a higher standard—to eliminate “the way things are normally done,” reach for a higher goal, and execute.  Without his work with us, we would have set our sights lower and achieved a lower result. Over 30+ years of business dealings,  mixed with a steady diet of business and life books,  regular attendance of every seminar known to man,  and even a sabbatical from work in the middle of my career to live and learn executively while buried at Stanford for three weeks,  never made this kind of an impact or difference.   His methodology is the single most explosive and productive learning experience I’ve had.

Former Executive of Global Software Company, IT Strategy & Planning, LDS Church

Now, I can make the seemingly impossible happen – not because I am driven to prove myself, as in the past, but because I know who I am and what difference I make. I am completely transformed as an individual – a better version of myself, unstoppable in my commitments.

Barry gets people to innovate, helps groups cohere into powerful teams, and unleashes everyone to go after unprecedented results. I saw already-highly-competent people reach far beyond what they would have done previously, and I should add, through this experience I found my own achievement reach just as far beyond my own expectations. If you’re looking for a breakthrough in performance, Barry can help you achieve it.

Dean, College of Dental Medicine, Roseman University of Health Sciences.

Barry’s work is about true leadership: finding your voice, inspiring others, and making your vision real, no matter how big or impossible. His work is revolutionary and inspiring.

I was able to clarify and give voice to my own vision for dental education. I saw my faculty shift from disseminating information to students for them to regurgitate back, to teaching each student to discover, to be adaptable, to think for themselves, to be true leaders in their chosen field. I am clear that our graduates will be fully prepared to effectively face a future of huge change due to technology and socio-economic forces. I saw the faculty and staff become one team, with deep respect for each other. I regularly hear them say how much they love their work and are deeply grateful to be here at Roseman. We are on the cutting edge of dental education in this country, and we all share a vision of what is possible for dental education everywhere. Barry’s work made this difference.

Transformation is not a trivial task and we live in dynamic times that demand dynamic and thoughtful leadership.  Working with Barry is truly transformative and has made me a better leader. His multi-disciplined approach is comprehensive and inspiring.  I benefit from the application of that learning to my day to day life and work.

Former CTO Wyndham International Hotels, Founder/President Spiral Horn Ranch

Our company achieved its turn-around mission. I don’t believe the company, or our department, could have ever accomplished these breakthroughs without Barry’s work. If you are the CEO of a major corporation, your dream may be to achieve unprecedented quarterly or annual results with your team. Barry will provide you with the technology to realize whatever dreams you may have.

Former Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Asia Pacific Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Worldwide

We initiated an “Impossible RGI Game”. We challenged every hotel general manager throughout Asia-Pacific to declare an impossible RGI (revenue generation index–measure of market share) — a breakthrough for their own hotel. This game challenged them to strive for what was impossible–much higher than what was budgeted.
