What Clients Say
Former CEO, Wayport Inc.
Our improvement as a management team was significant in many key areas (collaboration, accountability, ending blame/being a victim, acceptance of responsibility, interpersonal skills) and that allowed us to execute at much higher levels. In addition, nothing was a given: we questioned many things we would not have in the past and were much more capable of setting new and higher targets of productivity. We were successful in moving beyond our own formula for success, once we understood that it alone had its limits. That allowed us to comfortably define new and higher productivity targets and achieve them. We were willing to risk our past success formula to reach new levels of success.

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 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.
Four decades as Executive Officer, COO, and CEO of five International Hospitality Companies
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.
Frank Licari DDS, MPH, MBA,
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.
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.
Hospitality Industry Consultant, Former General Manager, Triton Hotel, San Francisco, CA
After attending some powerful coaching sessions with Barry, I put the newfound ideas into practice. I wanted to do something extraordinary. My objective was to lead all hotels I managed to number one in their competitive set. I was running Hotel Triton in San Francisco at the time known as the “hippest hotel in America.” At a General Managers’ retreat, I stood up and committed to 100% occupancy in the month of August of that coming summer. No one to my knowledge anywhere, short of hotels dealing with local disaster teams, nailed 100% each day for 31 days. 100% means not even one room running empty. At first my executive team was dumbfounded, resistant. Standing in what I had committed to, we talked about what it would take. We all got inspired and they took on the quest with me. That summer we accomplished the extraordinary—we achieved 100% occupancy throughout August. The hotel surpassed its revenue goals, achieved the highest market penetration in the city’s history, and everyone on my team was transformed—each person went on to accomplish many things professionally and personally that they would never have taken on before.
Former CTO Wyndham International Hotels, Founder/President Spiral Horn Ranch
