Larry B., Vistex

 

“The assessment that I did through BlueEQ was eye-opening and made me realize that there was a lot of personal growth that I didn’t focus on before. Part of the plan was to build a 90-day follow-up plan and although my plan turned out to be a 120 day plan the progress I made was something I didn’t expect. I could ‘read’ situations better and quicker and could apply the lessons learned. It helped me to ‘step up my game’ and complex situations were easier to understand and therefore easier to resolve. The knowledge and training now helps me with a bigger role that I started in 2017. In large complex change and transformation projects EQ makes a difference and will help get teams on board to execute.”
