Fletch assisted me with raising my performance by helping me understand others perception of my leadership skills. This improved my awareness of my strengths and opportunities, enabling me to become a more effective leader. His experience as a CEO in healthcare gives him a deeper understanding of the issues I was facing.  He is also very fun to work with!
