Due to the confidential nature of our work, company and personal information has been removed.


“I can think of no better person to act as a confidante and mentor to senior leaders, who often find themselves confronting difficult organizational problems that require clear thinking, strong action, and a value based compass."
 
“As an executive coach, Lloyd is a person of extreme integrity and believes that managing in an ethical and value based manner is not only the right thing to do, but is also good business that brings results. He has the ability to help an executive effectively work through strategic issues, making the organization stronger and helping the leader to develop the capacity for the future.” 
 President Financial Services Ontario, Canada 

There are all kinds of people who will coach you and encourage you in your career. Lloyd is one of the few that recognizes the seamless interconnection of the professional, personal and spiritual you and wisely cautions you to consider the ramifications of only paying attention to one at the exclusion of, and often at the expense of, the others. When Lloyd speaks, I listen.” 
In-House Organization Developer Advanced Manufacturing, Washington State, USA

"Lloyd’s warmth and approachability enables him to explore and understand what makes people ‘tick’ thus providing an accurate profile which has proven invaluable when screening for high level and/or leadership positions.
 
“What makes Lloyd so unique? The answer – the time he invests up-front in building a trusting relationship with those he works with and his ability to learn and understand the vision and values of the organization and its people. This guarantees that the systems and strategies he recommends can not only be easily integrated into the culture but that they also work in tandem with the organization’s leadership philosophy.” 
Vice President, Human Resources International Food Retailer British Columbia, Canada 

"Dr. Field persuaded us to dig deep and answer some tough questions. The results of this very necessary organizational assessment resulted in a greater fiscal commitment from our Board and staff to meet the challenges of the current economic downturn. I would not hesitate to recommend Lloyd to other not-for-profit community-building organizations that are interested in seizing opportunities to increase their capacity to make a difference." 
Chair, Board of Directors & Executive Director Arts & Literacy organization New England, USA 

“I was stunned and found it uncanny how Lloyd so accurately and compellingly put his finger on the pulse of our company and so succinctly identified the irregularities. His methodology and direct access and communication with the individual ‘heartbeats’ gave unquestionable validity to his conclusions.” Vice President Sales Pharmaceutical Industry New Jersey, USA

“The Behavioral Interviewing Workshop will make a real difference to our hiring practices.”
 
Administrator, Health Care Industry 

“I am overwhelmed by the output from the Values and Guiding Behavior Workshop that you delivered.” 
General Manager, Manufacturing Company 

“This Communications Workshop was the smartest training investment we’ve ever made!” 
Plant Manager, Automotive Supplier 

“This seminar made us aware of organizing strategies and early warning signs of union activity. We now know what to do.” 
Plant Human Resources Manager, Chemical Company 

"Lloyd is the ultimate business resource any entrepreneur can have in their toolbox. He helped to assess our organization’s ‘weak spots’ and coached several of us to think outside the box. Invite him to your annual, off-site leadership weekend and watch out when you return to the office… but be warned… he’ll propel your leaders to do outstanding things. He is the definition of AWESOME." 
CEO, Plastic Compounding Manufacturer Edmonton, Alberta 

"As a seasoned National Director of Human Resources I did not expect much out of the Positive Employee Relations training session I attended with my new Human Resource Manager. But I was pleasantly surprised. Lloyd was different; he cut through the clutter and provided real tangible value. I learned and appreciated the humor and style of delivery." 
Human Resources Director, Corrugated Box Manufacturer Eastern Ontario, Canada 

“Your insights and observations were right on target with our group. In fact, the sound strategies and techniques you shared with us can only be surpassed by your passion and integrity.” 
President, Retail Hardware Store Mississauga, Ontario 

“I didn’t need to tell you what it takes to hold the attention of an “All-CEO” group such as mine, because you did it. All too often, speakers come from theory without practice. Your background indicated “you’ve been there” and your presentation showed it. The most frequent comment heard was the amount of immediately implementable action ideas delivered.” 
Conference Co-ordinator President’s Association, Toronto, Ontario 

“When I first heard Lloyd Field speak at the national conference earlier this year, I just knew we had to bring him to Calgary. He takes powerful material, adds his personal street smarts and actual experience, and delivers a message that every CEO needs to hear.” 
Human Resources Director Mining Industry Association, Calgary, Alberta 

"Dr. Lloyd Field truly wanted us to succeed. We could not have made it this far without him. As a fledgling business spending far too much time on the minutia, we forgot about who was helping us grow – our employees. Lloyd’s in-depth processes surfaced many questions that had awaited attention for a long time. Some tensions inevitably arose from this process, but he handled them with calmness and competence. Our short term action plans have convinced our employees that we care about them as much as we care about our customers. Together we’re building a strong and enthusiastic workplace… this is no place for a union.” 
President, Chamber of Commerce Southwest, USA 

"Dr. Field persuaded us to dig deep and answer some tough questions. The results of this very necessary organizational assessment resulted in a greater fiscal commitment from our Board and staff to meet the challenges of the current economic downturn. I would not hesitate to recommend Lloyd to other not-for-profit community-building organizations that are interested in seizing opportunities to increase their capacity to make a difference." 
Chair, Board of Directors & Executive Director Arts & Literacy organization, New England state, USA 

"The process and the product have put us in a better position to maneuver through this difficult time, to sharpen our focus, and manage our resources better. Lloyd Field was an incredible resource; an educator, facilitator, and enabler. He was able to listen to our questions and concerns, harvest our ideas and vision, build on our strengths and rich history, and encourage us to be bold in our thinking and actions." 
Executive Director, Community Development Organization Northern Ontario 

"Our relationship with Dr. Lloyd Field has been nothing short of transformative for our organization. He led us through a strategic plan last year, getting a very diverse Board of Directors to find compromises. As we began to implement the strategic plan, Lloyd was able to recruit four new Board members, thus helping us to round out the ‘skill sets around the table’. The results… we’re in a better position to seek out, with confidence, new community funding for our programs.” 
Executive Director, Community Food Bank British Columbia 

“Not only was Dr. Field [Lloyd] asked to participate with our senior managers in the development of a Human Resource system...for our advanced technology company...he was asked to implement these programs. Through the implementation stage he developed close and supportive relations with most of our managers and supervisors, thereby providing him (and indirectly the senior management team) with the opportunity to constructively influence management decisions at the grass roots of our organization.” 
President, International Aerospace Industry Ontario and the Maritimes 

“I used Dr. Field’s services as an Organizational Development Consultant who not only advised the members of our Management Committee but acted as a personal ‘sparring partner’ in assisting us to clarify and develop strategies to address this major organizational change we had undertaken. He then sat as a full member on our senior management committee. During this period of time he continued to act as a mentor to many senior and middle managers, helping them to better understand their new accountabilities. Upon signing a Collective Agreement, Lloyd provided us, in hindsight, with a very progressive approach to labour relations. He advised us to employ a firm of industrial psychologists to conduct a number of Conflict Resolution Workshops for both the union and the management negotiating committees. This program was designed under Lloyd’s guidance and was implemented by an industrial psychologist.” 
President, Bio-medical Pharmaceutical Company Mississauga, Ontario 

“The tools that Lloyd shared with our management group during a strategic planning session enabled us to quickly identify core areas of concern. He also helped us to develop Values and Guiding behaviors to support our up-dated mission and vision statements. Implementing these ‘simple truths’ will ensure our continued growth in our service sector.” 
CEO & General Manager, Technology Hardware Leasing Calgary, AB 

“We appreciate your open and honest critiquing of our plans and helping us to assemble our thoughts and ideas into a more powerful approach to achieving our goals. Changing culture is a very difficult process and in many cases you aren’t given a second chance to right a wrong. We are confident that we will be successful and that with your help we will achieve our mutual goal of GUNG HO employees.” 
Vice-President & General Manager Metal Assembly, Illinois USA 

“As our organization and workforce grew from literally nothing to 1800 strong, we embraced your wisdom and council in the development of our employee relations climate. From the many leadership workshops to the individual consultations, we have utilized philosophies developed by you to achieve results by building trust and effective processes by which we focus on recognition and communications instead of enforcement and wall-building. The bottom line is that you [Lloyd] taught us to listen when it was for us to understand what was being said.” 
Plant Director, Heavy Equipment Manufacturer Southwestern Ontario 

“Your work on our cultural guides helped set the new cultural boundaries and gave us a very useful tool for managers to follow. Your individual consultations with managers and direct reports have helped the Company to move towards more effective communication and your help with Performance Management has helped us improve our results in the Division. You have personally helped me develop a better relationship with both my direct report and with my managers.” 
President, Plastics Manufacturer Toronto, Ontario
