What They’re Saying About Michael York…

“Such significant improvement in our key operational results was, in my opinion, directly related to your work with my organization.  Those results were only made possible by your intervention into our organization and our culture…

And you deserve much of the credit for that turnaround!

Where do I start?  Because your efforts included a multitude of actions that affected critical areas of my business.  These efforts included the attraction and development of “Top Talent,” Management training & development, the introduction of a new way of thinking and the creation of a new “Opener” culture.  And of course, your unique approach to training (learning) that you appropriately named Cool $chool. 

Each of these initiatives significantly enhanced our ability to compete in a very challenging and competitive market and produced these dramatic results in spite of a soft economic environment.  Taken together, they radically changed our approach to our business and set the stage for tremendous accomplishments…”

  Lou Ascanio, MGA, Colonial Insurance
