"If you are ever in a pinch during the planning of a stakeholder meeting, I would strongly encourage you to seek the services of Adriano! Within 1.5 weeks of our annual meeting Adriano assisted my branch in organizing several roundtable discussions to ensure that our stakeholders felt it was the best use of their time and that we met our program objectives. Adriano’s ability to quickly focus and encourage staff who were intimidated in trying a new collaborative approach for identifying joint actions for local and national environmental priorities enabled us to obtain the results we were seeking."
“I have worked with Adriano on several organizational development efforts and have been impressed with his collaborative approach and willingness to address tough issues. His deep knowledge of organizational and leadership theory and his ability to look below the surface to see what’s really happening within an organization has helped our IT department begin to tackle long-standing patterns of behavior that kept us from realizing our mission. If you want a consultant who will tell you what you want to hear, then don’t hire Adriano. If you are serious about empowering your people to take on greater challenges and address the real issues facing your organization, then he can help your team realize its possibilities.”
Thomas Ferris | Assistant to the Chief Information Officer | International Monetray Fund
