"I’ve worked with Maurice over the past decade on a ton of large complex employee-impacting situations. We partnered on acquisition integrations, critical organizational changes, and leadership development, to name a few, and his counsel and guidance were particularly valuable for keeping my organizations growing during the pandemic. When it comes to the “people” domain, I need someone who won’t hold back or sugar coat the message. He is exactly the person I want guiding me in this space. We may not always agree, but with Maurice there is creativity. There is candor. Most of all, there is trust. I may have a solid idea of an approach, but often he wouldn’t take long to present another perspective I hadn’t considered that reframed the problem with a better course of action. And, there’s healthy conflict where my ideas can be challenged and I his, with nothing left unsaid. I’ve found this type of working relationship is the difference between good outcomes and great ones."
