"I wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank FutureSense for coming out and doing the Strategic Workforce planning workshop for the Human Resources team. In addition to making it interactive and fun, it was probably THE most informative and impactful training that the team has had to date. This was unanimously expressed by every member as they discussed all the "ah-ha" moments. Over the course of the last few months, since the time of the workshop, I have noted a different HR team. They no longer spend all their time in the weeds. The questions are strategic, the consultation is more strategic, and the Managers have observed this independently and commented on it unsolicited. One manager said, "Since when does HR do SWOT analyses around here?" This was in response to a business partner assisting him with a strategic plan for his engineering group. Thank you again." - HR Director, International Oil & Gas Company
"We love working with FutureSense. During our first introductory meeting, it was apparent that you had a unique gift. You were able to grasp our company culture and become and efficient and productive advisor on leadership and workplace issues." - VP Finance, Irrigation Company
"Once again, THANK YOU all for your terrific support. From identifying and contacting key speakers to thinking through the panels to setting placecards the day of, your work was flawless and delivered with enthusiasm and graciousness. Who can ask for anything more?" - President, Entertainment Industry Service Organization
"Our recent experience with FutureSense was incredible! They designed and facilitated an inspirational strategic planning process with our Board of Directors, The Board now owns the process for the first time and participation has reached an all time high. With my 29 years of experience with boards and planning, I believe FutureSense provides an optimal process that is efficient in every way." - President & CEO, Non-Profit Organization
"It was an absolute please to have you with us for our inaugural event. You brought the house down. In the breakout sessions, almost everyone in the afternoon said they were inspired by your ideas and that they were ready to put them to work."
"Finished the book, FUSE. Have had one intense and very successful interaction and three-way issue resolution with one of my 26-year-old team leaders and a 20-year-old creative. WOW!! Turned a situation into a true learning and mentoring situation. Plus, I have injected your ideas into two all-staff meetings and gotten very positive feedback in casual interactions with several of our young workers after each meeting. The mood in the "tree fort" (that's our creative zone where six Millennials work in a group environment) has noticeably energized. We intend to inject FUSE thinking into our processes from this day forward." - President & CEO, Production Company
"Thank you for a superb experience! You designed and facilitated a thorough, organized strategic planning process that helped us achieve our best results in a short period of time. Our directors were thoroughly engaged in the process and the residual effect of our work with FutureSense is a more active, passionate and communicative board." - President & CEO, Non-Profit Organization
"Jim is absolutely brilliant at helping executives work through challenging compensation issues, especially at privately held companies. He has a tremendous ability to tease out the psychological, emotional and unspoken drivers and combine them with real data/financial models to create compensation packages that align the team. I can't recommend him highly enough."
