What Our Clients Have to Say

  • “I have just recently retired as an HR Partner with PwC. After considering various paths to take on my next life journey I selected Teleos to be my ‘developmental partner’. As a leader in my Firm I have been exposed to the very best external consultants so my expectation was extremely high. I was thrilled with the outcome as I received the framework and structure I was searching for to go with my 34 years of experience! The content was perfect, the instruction was superb and the engagement of the group was outstanding. I not only received the methodology and frameworks I was searching for but it also served to give me a clear focus on planning my next journey. I only wish I had gone to this coaching session much sooner as it would have shaped me into a better leader, husband and father! It was tremendously valuable and I am so thankful that Teleos was the organization I selected!”

    Robert J. Daugherty, Former Partner, HR and Partner Development, PwC
  • “Having used Teleos as an external consulting resource to help build the capability of our internal organizational/leadership consultants, I was eager to further develop my own skills by participating in their coaching program. The program has exceeded my expectations by providing me with theory, practice, and feedback to further enhance my coaching skills.”

    Mike Markovits, Former VP, Business and Technical Leadership, IBM
  • As a director or manager of an operation that has a strong mission culture  and doubling in size it is important to have a partner like Teleos that can assist the “enterprise” go through the cultural changes that often take place with so many new staff.  It is important to the long term team members and the new members to understand each other and to change as necessary to enable all to collaborate for a successful enterprise.  I have used Teleos both in my operations but also suggested them for our national partner, the National Co-op Grocers who represent about 200 co-op retail stores throughout the United States.
