What our Clients are Saying…

Mike’s combination of passion, energy, knowledge and personalized attention matches perfectly with our culture.  He is excellent at motivating people and his commitment to helping our leadership team accomplish its goals was truly unique.  Mike led us through the process of launching a new continuous improvement model and made sure that our group gained a deep seated understanding of lean concepts and tools during the implementation.  I am confident that my key leaders now have the skills to transform our business to a higher level of success on our lean journey.

Plant Manager, Baxter Cartago

I had the pleasure of working with Mike on a large project where he designed a one of a kind leadership training for our company.  Not only did Mike over deliver in helping us improve how our leaders interact with their teams and improve the perforance of our team members, he also did it in a very engaging and personable way.  He got to know the people in the company at all levels and customized the project to fit our culture. I highly recommend Mike and appreciate his focus on delivering results through daily process improvements.

Michael Cordon

Training & Development Manager, OC Tanner

As a company, we are committed to building internal capacity and SISU partnered with us to build a critical skill set for key leaders so they in turn could teach others.  After Mike worked with our people, we were able to send them back to their respective plants to successfully teach other individuals.  Not many consultants are willing to support a company to do this kind of work and we are grateful for Mike’s impact on the success of our leaders and lean implementation.
