In each case, he is well prepared, performs thorough analysis, and employs approaches that work effectively and efficiently.

"I’ve had the great pleasure of working and conversing with Blake and his team many times over the years, and their teachings have inspired the mantra I live and run my company by today: You only have one life, so live it well and pour your best into everything you do."

"Leath Group has become an iconic fixture in my recollections of professional development. Twelve years later, their top-notch content remains as fresh in my mind as the moment I learned it: thinking systemically about strategy, finding the sweet spot between leadership and company culture to produce lasting change, and tailoring communications purposefully for full absorption by the audience at hand. I will never forget the principles they shared or the quality of work they delivered. It inspired me, illuminated both my career and my personal life, and continues to reap benefits in literally every significant and meaningful relationship I have."

"The courses, curriculum, and leaders at Leath Group were incredibly refreshing. Working in the military, we stay pretty well insulated, but Leath introduced top-of-the-line, disruptive, cutting-edge content that provided highly practical perspectives on one of today’s most pressing business issues: successful leadership in a complex and distributive organizational environment. As a result of their engagement and coaching our top leaders, we learned to understand and leverage differences, many of them cultural, and succeeded at executing our strategies."

"In our collaborations together at GE, Bausch + Lomb, and Lockheed Martin, I looked forward to Blake’s input time after time. He—like the caliber of people drawn to him—has always been incomparable at getting the lay of the land quickly, synthesizing vast amounts of information from multiple stakeholders, intuiting what needs to be done and how, then developing and delivering reality-based curriculum and coaching that moved our needle or benefited the bottom line. In the sea of choices, I choose Blake because he gets the job done, energizes others with that infectious laugh, and I can always predict the work product we create together will be World Class."

"When you interact with people, very few leave you with a memorable experience. I was privileged to have such an exchange in my interactions with Blake and his colleagues at Leath Group. From the time we met and embarked on our learning workshops, they impressed me with their command of leadership principles and unmatched ability to translate teaching into practical and actionable steps. They quickly understood the context and unique needs of our working teams and combined a mixture of smart intuition and expert knowledge to offer guidance with immediate and lasting impact."

"Our organization partnered with Leath Group to develop best-in-class sales curriculum. We found the entire team to be responsive, engaging, open and driven. The end-product is one that received rave reviews across the entire division. As a leader, Blake is someone we found ourselves continually turning to for advice on design, delivery, and most importantly WOWing the audience. I have nothing but great things to say about our experience with Blake and team."

“Whether for High-Potentials or Leaders, Leath Group has been a great solution partner for executing our vision of employee development. I love their flexibility, understanding, and willingness to change with the business. They do a great job listening to our requirements, providing realistic recommendations, and introducing best practices. Their passion for people and high-quality programs comes through in their deliverables. I had the pleasure to partner with Clay Morgan and Dave Rigdon, and they have been lifesavers many times over! Clay is an amazing facilitator, and Dave is a genius content developer. Coming from a lean organization, it was great adding them as an extension to my team. I highly recommend them for any organization's talent development needs.”

"Leath Group has provided profound insights for me over the years. Whether in the form of coaching or the written word, they gather and synthesize information so quickly and provide feedback that gets straight to the point. Their coaching services are useful, practical and easy to apply—and always spot-on!"

"There’s so much shiny content out there, but successful implementation of new ideas, new ways of thinking, and new approaches ultimately comes down to relationships and consistent reinforcement of language and concepts. I experience both in my collaborations with Leath Group, first by seeing how much trust they earn with leaders, then by seeing their commitment to remain vested until new language and new skills take root and blossom. I suppose many groups are good starters, but developing entire benches of leaders who can positively change culture for a generation requires a long-term partner, and for that Leath is a role model and the standard to follow."

"In 2018 the GridLiance Executive Leadership team held a workshop facilitated by Leath Group to refresh the Company’s strategy. The program that Blake and his team used was incredibly effective and the results of that workshop laid the foundation for the steep growth trajectory our Company has and continues to experience. The Golden Thread that focused sequentially on self, team, culture, and strategy established a clear set of core values and strategic priorities with which the organization was able to align."

"When asked to make ground-shaking changes in a world-renowned technology firm, my first call was to Leath Group. They embraced the mission quickly and built a hybrid leadership + change program that kept our business running smoothly, improved processes mid-flight, and delighted ownership. Their content and delivery enabled us to accomplish in months what I thought would surely take years, and it all began with their willingness to accept what some had whispered was impossible."

"Leath's Strategic Planning program was a game-changer for us. We went from reaction and mission-drift to building a cohesive strategy for the next 10 years. We now see ourselves and our purpose more clearly than ever before, and we could not have done it without them."
