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.

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.
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 wanted to do something extraordinary…The hotel surpassed its revenue goals, achieved the highest market penetration in the city’s history, and everyone on my team was transformed.
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.
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.
