Testimonials Andrea Zintz, Ph.D. Managing Principal of Strategic Leadership Resources, LLC Central NJ/Metro NYC Area ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Consumer Products ______________________________________________________________________________________________ "When sitting with line leaders, Andrea can talk based on her experience as a board member. She understands the environment, challenges, obstacles and the enablers that could be unleashed; I valued that. She's one of most authentic people I've worked with. She really listens. When she plays back what heard she is usually very accurate. I've worked with consultants where, by the time it comes back to you, the scope is more or less than what we discussed. I never had that with Andrea. She's very ethical, authentic.
Andrea states what's needed in a non-threatening way. It's not the content that differentiates her, it's the authenticity she brings to these interactions. She doesn't get the client's disease (the organizations' ailments). She doesn't own the problem more than you, but you definitely feel you have a partner." Laura Famularo, Vice President, Human Resources, Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, NJ ______________________________________________________________________________________________
"Andrea's work in the for-profit and non-profit organizations with which I was involved was strong, insightful, challenging and helpful. Her engaging personality and commitment to our projects, their success and follow up engendered a lot of good will, active listening, creative questions and some interesting change for the leaders in these organizations. I highly recommend Andrea in both a coaching and a training role." Hope Pomerantz, President at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, South Orange, NJ ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"Regarding Andrea's work as my executive coach, now I'm listening, understanding, and not drawing conclusions. I ask a lot more questions versus my old, 'here's what I want to do, let's get it done' approach. Now meetings are stimulating and challenging conversations. My people say at the end of a meeting, 'Good meeting.' Before they would say, 'Do we have to have a meeting?' Andrea helped me evaluate people more quickly and validate my feedback on evaluations I made ... I've developed some talent here. Two to three young managers here have been promoted to VP and GM. Developing people for sustainability is my job. It's all about talent. If I have good people we can win.
Profitability-wise, we almost doubled EBITDA. She contributed to that."
