“Verus Global had a significant impact on the transformational change [our division has] achieved (output, speed, employee retention, engagement surveys) over the past 4 years. I do not believe we would have achieved anything close to what we did without the Pathways to Leadership tools and the additional help the Verus Global team provided to over 100 of our associates since 2013.”

I see Pathways to Leadership as a gift to individuals in the organization. It brings together the company [values] and leadership [behaviors] and brings them alive with practical approaches to interact every day. It is a mind shift and changes people’s lives both inside and outside of work. It truly gives people the skills to be their best every day. Kim Riddle

Director HHC Engineering, P&G

“As a finance leader, I always took a typical financial point of view towards training, especially for what I would call, “touchy-feely” kind of training…after having gone through the full immersive training process, I have a different point of view. I started to realize that as I was working through some of the issues on the business and interpersonal dynamics, these principles work. I internalized it. I realized how powerful the tools really are and how they can meaningfully change outcomes and how an organization feels about the work environment and the leaders of the organization. Once you win their hearts, it’s easy to get an organization focused on delivering breakthrough results.”
