“Responsive Leadership has enhanced our capacity more than any other approach undertaken…de Groot’s approach has improved employee and client outcomes.”
– Dr. John Colangeli, CEO

“Stephen de Groot is to Human Services Leadership, as Gabor Mate is to Addictions. I would rank him as the absolute best trainer I have ever experienced. His Responsive Leadership Conference had a profound impact on me and the staff that attended. We refer to the book regularly and I find our members quoting Steve’s words and the material constantly in conversations. The paradigm shift and impact were immediate; we are making it a part of our culture and the way we practice.”

– Lisa Graham, Human Resources Manager

“The Responsive Leadership session exceeded mine and my team’s expectations! We were given a wealth of practical tools and examples of how to lead/coach and work with our people much better. Steve’s energy and style were so engaging that all members were riveted the entire time. Everyone left the day feeling more self-aware and hopeful that we were better equipped to support our teams and serve our clients.”

– Mala Sachdeva, Former Deputy Minister, Manitoba Housing
