We’re proud of the work we do. But more than that, we’re proud of the relationships we build with our clients. We invest in listening, understanding, and connecting with the teams we work alongside, and building a partnership that lasts from first handshake to long after our final project wraps up. That experience is reflected in the way our clients talk about their experience working with us. Time and time again, we hear: “I’ve never worked with anyone quite like O’Brien Group.” Read on to see why!

Mike Eesley, CEO
“I was spending an enormous amount of time thinking about the “what if” related to our pending merger. Rob assisted me in staying focused on the matters that were relative to my role. Yes, we continue to witness change associated with our merger, but we feel more in control of what is happening. We are more engaged.

I have become extremely productive by maintaining focused attention to the task at hand and rarely drifting off emphasizing on things I have no control over. I have been able to make my role fun again. And surprisingly, maintaining a focus on what I can control makes me happier as a person. Life is better.”

“Working with the O'Brien Group has helped me better understand my leadership and my tendencies under stress. This has helped me be more effective in leading through conflict and achieving improved results.

The O'Brien Group also helped our team develop a process and criteria to effectively prioritize our work. We now have a living methodology, in complete alignment with our values and strategies, that will stand the test of time. The team is now having more honest and forthright conversations about the issues that really matter; the issues that would otherwise keep us from accomplishing our goals.”

“O’Brien Group has played a big role in our success by introducing additional structure, tools, and personal accountability for our executive team. Real-time group and individual coaching have been key as we’ve implemented new decision-making frameworks and worked to understand how each of us can best contribute to success on our team. Specifically, combining leadership with strategic planning has advanced our work considerably and provided measurable deliverables.

Personally, working with O’Brien Group has helped me to understand my unique leadership challenges and helped me shape my behaviours to become more effective.”

John Starcher, CEO
“O’Brien Group has served Mercy Health for more than 16 years, and have adapted their engagements to the needs of the organization and the executive team.
The initial phase of work with the executive team was to help us better define the interdependent relationships of our executives at the system, regional, and functional levels. Together we were able to define team memberships and charters, adopt common communication standards and work practices, and commit to specific values-driven behaviours.
O’Brien Group continued to help us to optimize performance while executing a new strategic plan. O’Brien Group partners engaged in individual coaching with executives in new roles, those accepting new responsibilities, or those experiencing high rates of change or challenge within their functions or organizations.”
