I have relied on Ed's consultation several times in my role as the director of a nationally renowned treatment program affiliated with a leading academic medical center. Ed's depth of experience as a highly accomplished organizational executive, insight into both conscious and unconscious systemic processes, and his deep respect for the ways in which organizations are always working at a task, even if temporarily occluded from view, truly set him apart in his ability to help organizational leaders gain perspective on multi-layered, complex, and seemingly intractable dilemmas. I have repeatedly found his perspective invaluable. Ed truly knows how to listen, and even more, he helps leaders and organizations discover their own creative solutions through the support and understanding he provides. He does all of this with brilliance, grace, good humor, dignity and uncompromising integrity. Of all the consultants I could choose from, I can think of no other organizational consultant to have by my side.
