Ron is one of the strongest professionals I know and I recommend him strongly!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Ron at the U.S. Dept. of State though the real pleasure has developed over the past few years as Ron has evolved his coaching and organizational management program. I regularly borrow his wisdom for redistribution among my team (with proper attribution, of course) and find his blog, Tenet 6, thought-provoking and inspirational. Keep up the great work, Ron. "
