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.

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.

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.
