Testimonials

Chester Elton is one of the finest business speakers I have come across in my 15 year professional career around the world. He spoke for 120 leaders of our Novartis General Medicines Team in Barcelona. Insights gained from his presentation can be used everyday, It’s creating a cultural shift in our organization that I’ve not seen any talk do!

Folks at various levels throughout our organization are still raving about Chester’s session. He received the highest marks of any speaker. Not only was he entertaining, but he put time into getting it right and the content really resonated with this group. That says a lot for such a quiet and cynical crowd.”

"Chester received a standing ovation. I'd say that it was a grand slam, home run to spearhead a cultural change initiative throughout our region. Chester's approach to combine strategy and tactics, supported by real-world studies, was instrumental at not only gaining participants buy-in, but at inspiring our leaders and helping us formulate actionable plans to move forward.”

"Chester knocked it out of the park, helping our leaders understand part of their success in getting maximum results is through creating the right culture! I wish I had counted how many leaders came up to me throughout the week and said how much they enjoyed his session."

THE DILEMMA: 
Leadership is about people, but many managers get so busy they lose sight of those who deliver the results. The best leaders have high expectations for their team members while also creating environments where their people know the plan, are
focused on areas that need attention, and feel appreciated for every step forward.

The payoffs in getting this right come not only in leaders boosting performance and morale, but in gaining a better understand of their team members, how they are contributing, and what more they have to give.
