My name is Jim Lucas, and I have been a Vistage Chair for 12 ½ years covering the Brandywine Valley of southeast Pennsylvania and Northern Delaware

I recently was asked by one of my members to participate in a ‘Breakthrough to PRIME’ 2 day workshop with Ian MacDougall. I observed Ian lead the member’s senior leadership team of 11 people through a truly ‘transformative” experience that significantly helped them identify the issues that needed to be resolved if the company is to get to PRIME and avoid ‘aging’.

Ian was able to gain the participants confidence at the outset with his natural style and wonderful sense of humor, to the extent that they opened up in an extremely candid way that really get the heart of the challenges they faced. They did this without finger pointing. No one felt ‘attacked’

Having 11 business leaders of an $80M company not available in their offices or the field for 2 days represented a major commitment but Ian’s leadership resulted in a significant return on that investment. By the end of the workshop the team had developed and bought into the key initiatives required by the Leadership Team to take the organization to PRIME. They also demonstrated the requisite energy and commitment to work on these a one team.

Feel free to contact me either by email or telephone and I will share more details about why Ian’s ‘Breakthrough to Prime’ workshop is well worth the financial and time investment for any leadership team seeking to get to their organization next growth level of the lifecycle.”

Both my Key Group and my CE Group found your presentation to be one of – if not THE – best and most useful presentations we have had. And, it has provided plenty of follow up work, both individually and with the group. SO, I’d like to ask now if I can get you in my schedule next year for both groups with your Change Management talk.”

Thank you again for your instruction and guidance last week in Hong Kong. This had to be one of the best training courses I’ve attended. The role-play and practice, and your patience and direction, helped make it. I hope you had a good trip back to the US and perhaps we’ll see you out here
for advanced facilitation training next year. ”
