...this experience will last a lifetime...

This experience will last a lifetime and it has provided me with the tools for continued success.”

...an amazing cultivator of leadership...
“Ed Evarts is an amazing cultivator of leadership and helped propel me to the next level of it. I work in a global pharmaceutical company with its associated complexity of social groups and processes. Ed was my leadership coach for a year. He helped me develop MY PERSONAL BRAND OF LEADERSHIP steeped in the sharing of vision, enabling others to act, and modeling the way. He very successfully analyzed the root cause of my struggles in the company and guided me (sometimes not-so-gently) to a heightened sense of awareness. He accomplished this through critical discussions with team members and managers, targeted reading, thoughtful analysis of my daily interactions and team meetings, and his tremendous insightfulness. I highly recommend Ed Evarts.”
