WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

High Performing Teams

Right from the way they interviewed things were different. You can tell how well they quickly understood our culture, and they asked questions that really got the whole team thinking. By the time we met as a team, mindsets were different. The work they do at this level is really special.

CEO, Fortune 500 Company

High Performing Teams

ExCo is unique in their approach. We were skeptical of bringing in outside facilitators. Past experiences have been marginal, but they pushed us to where we had new insights that led to some real progress. We left with outcomes we can measure and a much deeper, fundamental understanding of how each team member operates, and how we can best work together. They came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint

CEO, Fortune 50 company

Senior Executive Development

“I have had a few coaches in my day, and I can clearly say she is the best I have ever had. She was insightful and challenged me to think differently. She brought great ideas, templates, and structure to our sessions and helped me develop in the areas I really needed to grow in to be successful. I would not be being promoted to VP without her guidance and incredible experience she shared and guided me with. The match was perfect, and I would recommend her to anyone needing a coach that really has a vested interest in understanding the client and helping them develop. I will be forever grateful for getting time and growing under her leadership.”

Chief of Staff to the CFO, Global Financial Technology Firm

Senior Executive Development

“I’m operating as the CEO of a social networking company at the bleeding edge of what’s going on in the world…. I don’t think I need a lot of mentorship by Silicon Valley minds. This kind of raw, thoughtful, insightful, tested, pragmatic leadership that [The ExCo Group] brings from a completely outside perspective has been really valuable to me.”

CEO, Leading Global Social Networking Company

Assessment

“The way The ExCo Group approached the assessment and their perspective and triangulating what they’ve learned from their experience was a really groundbreaking and eye-opening hour. It really unlocked a lot of things that I’ve been trying to break through for myself. It was one of the most valuable hours I’ve had in my tenure as CEO of the company. It was very valuable, meaningful, and emotional. It unlocked a ton of value.”

CEO, Leading Global Social Networking Company

Succession

“We valued the fact that The ExCo Group knew our business and was thorough in understanding our strategy and what was required for the next leader. The process was comprehensive, yet completely relatable for our board. The entire board commented about the process, their engagement, and the clarity of the reporting which made the decision — which is always a difficult one — a lot easier. I would highly recommend The ExCo Group and would use them again any time for succession work.”

Emerging Leaders Development

“My mentor definitely influenced how I show up, engage, on-board, and communicate with my team. Even before moving into my new role, we spent a lot of time thinking about how to influence key stakeholders, approach conversations, and how to position my interactions with the CEO. That was extremely useful. I changed how I show up and work with the team and the CEO.”

Director of National Field Service, One of the Largest Youth Organizations in the US

High Performing Teams

“A game-changer. Your experience and approach pushed us as a team. We learned more about each other than I thought possible and have been clicking ever since. We keep bringing them back to help us grow even more which the team looks forward to.”

CEO, Private Equity Portfolio Company

Enterprise Transformation

“One of the biggest changes I made to the business is changing how I think about the role. I shifted from, ‘This is my job, and I need to accomplish these tasks,’ to setting up the systems, processes, and culture so others can accomplish the tasks. That was a big change and a very good thing.”

COO, Educational Non-Profit

Senior Executive Development

“My experience working with you made a difference to how I addressed the change. It didn’t change my strategy, necessarily, but it changed how I carried out that strategy. How I worked the change, the sequencing of what I did, when. My mentor was patient and persistent. I kept going for two years because he added real value.”

Global Practice Leader, Professional Services Firm

Succession

“I’ve done lots of these feedback sessions in my career, and this one with The ExCo Group was by far the clearest and most impactful. I learned more in my debrief than I did in 30 years of hearing similar types of debriefs.”

Emerging Leaders Development

The diverse leader accelerator has been a phenomenal experience, not only my individual experience, but what you were able to do with customization.
