“…an amazing cultivator of leadership…”

BRUCE DEZUBE

Senior Medical Director, Tesaro Pharmaceuticals


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.

“…a thoughtful process…”

VP, Business Development, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care


When I selected Excellius Leadership Development, I made the right choice. Ed Evarts is able to assume several roles throughout a coaching engagement: sounding board, guide, critical friend and genuine partner. He has the capacity to understand a wide variety of data on both a macro- and a micro- level, and has the skill to meld that information so that it can be used to formulate clear direction. Working with Ed is a thoughtful process that yields solid outcomes.

“…trusted advisor…”

JOY CORSO

Vice President, Communications and Marketing, NORCAL Group


“Ed has been a true partner, counselor and trusted advisor. He has the unique ability to not just listen, but truly ‘hear’ what someone is saying and ‘see’ the big picture from a business perspective. He takes all of that, and translates it in a way that puts it into a clear perspective, with meaningful insight and a path forward. It is a process that begins with ambiguity and uncertainty, and ends in clarity and confidence. He is truly skilled in his field.”
