Vince Cook
AccentCare – 2009

“After several years of exceptional growth, it became important to pull our executive team together to refocus our strategy and commitment to teaming. We determined that an outside consultant would be helpful to facilitate this process and create a clear and concise agenda. We sought input from a number of trusted partners in the Orange County market, and Brainard Strategy’s name came up again and again.

Michael met with our CEO and me to discuss the outcomes and options for the process. We sought to both develop our executive team’s ability to work better together and to develop/refine a set of strategic objectives that would guide the business over the coming two years. Michael interviewed all of the team members, and then worked with us to refine the agenda and outcomes while offering the benefit of his insight. Michael then facilitated a series of meetings that resulted in a set of strategies that we are successfully implementing today. Michael introduced us to a team functioning assessment that gave us a starting point for the team development process. That model and language have been immensely helpful to our team.

Michael’s blend of assessment skills, facilitation capabilities, and pragmatism helped our team and company to gain ever more focus on the highest value activities and have helped us to work better together.”
