Rick’s program really, really helped us – and helped me personally – in trying to look at and approach change moving forward.

Rick Cram’s “PLAN TO BE YOUR BEST…As a Team” was a great program for RISE Commercial District’s Leadership Retreat.

As one of the fastest growing companies in our market, we needed dedicated time with a fresh focus on team synergy. Between the strategies within his program and expert facilitation skills, Rick lead us through an engaged and highly motivated two days. It all began with Rick having one-on-one meetings with each member of the team before we traveled to meet as a group for the two-day retreat. It concluded with us gaining strategic action plans and new skills to work more cohesively. We are better leaders and are still strengthening our lead in the marketplace.

Mr. Sapp has worked with Rick Cram for over 20 years in various consulting engagements with the different Sapp Family companies. I would highly recommend Rick’s skill set and consulting for business growth.

Jim Sapp

President, RISE Commercial District

We needed a boost to get our leadership team to overcome some tough workplace challenges. Rick came and delivered to us new, and very usable, practical tools for motivating our teams. In short, he delivered the best program we ever had by customizing and leading an interactive workshop that left us all as stronger leaders. Not surprisingly, we became more motivated ourselves, and feeling like a re-energized team. Rick is strategic and creative, an expert facilitator, and we are most grateful that he led us to obtaining the growth we were looking for in developing the skill sets of our people.

Mary Ellen Slater

Creative Director, Slater Studios

As a manager with a large staff I can appreciate having a goal and a short time to meet it. You did that during the retreat and I was impressed with the result.

Facilitators at previous retreats were not nearly as effective as you – most notably was the way you warmed the group up and galvanized us. The methodology you used was much more precise than facilitators we had at our previous retreats. I personally felt like I was part of a solution with ideas and thoughts freely flowing.

Thank you again for your innovative approach.

Joseph Avena

Senior Director, IPRO

You helped us plan and produce the most successful and unique sales and marketing meeting we’ve ever had. You worked with our objectives, a short time frame and our committee with leadership and talent.

Nickolas Stavropoulos

President, KeySpan Energy

Right on the money! It accomplished what we planned…to engage, to get them involved and to motivate them for the upcoming sales year. We hit all the bases. It was great. I enjoyed the way you tailored it to the industry with the input we gave you. You kept everyone’s attention, and everyone in the room. You were key to building the camaraderie and the new team spirit.
