“The Consulting Team provided our team with exactly the right approach for our needs. They worked well in helping us develop our transitional personality and culture, given the departure of a 26-year Chief and the arrival of me, a first time, six-month Chief. Marilyn Manning was an absolute joy to work with in the initial setup of our program and Elaine Schmitz was phenomenal at facilitating the TBW. I can’t express strongly enough the impact their team had on my team.” Gene Harris, Police Chief, San Gabriel, California
