"David Z. Levin has been my invaluable strategic partner. We have worked together on an initiative of great importance to our organization and community. David was not only able to balance a complex structure, but he also dealt masterfully with a wide range of personalities and interests, connecting with many key players on a level of high diplomacy as we proceeded step by step to forge a consensus over a wide range of subtle and thorny issues. David came to the scene as a person who softly but firmly moved our process along, and did so by adding enormous value with his insights at each step. We could never have come this far without him.
David has my highest recommendation as a uniquely talented consultant, and in addition I now regard him as a personal friend."
Richard A. Liddy
Chairman, President & CEO, GenAmerica Corporation
"Working closely with David, my senior management team members became keenly aware of their behaviors and their impact on the group. As a result of effective counseling and coaching by David, the senior team began to work more productively together. David has outstanding skills in organizational behavior and planning. He is extremely hard working and a man of the highest integrity.
David helped me better understand my strengths and weaknesses and coached me in how to become a more effective manager and leader. I am grateful for his invaluable assistance."
John A. Ward, III
CEO, Credit Card Division of Chase Manhattan Bank
"I have been taken by David's passion, honesty and leadership. He has helped me to experience more deeply how being peaceful, balanced, and relaxed are powerful methods for increasing my effectiveness.
I will always be grateful to David for his special gifts and for his extraordinary talent for sharing them with me."
CEO and Founder, Signature Restaurants by Georges Perrier
"There was a minute during the St. Louis Leadership trip to Baltimore when I found myself wondering how different the experience would have been if David Z. Levin hadn't worked so well and so hard in our community. I congratulate him on peeling the layers of influence. His understanding and patience have proven to be a critical catalyst for change.
Clearly there were leaders of the highest levels who would not have taken this trip, or, if they had, would not have reached out to their fellow travelers, so to speak, without his encouragement and guidance. I am familiar with his success in blending corporate cultures and am impressed with his ability to break down the barriers that characterize the factions that seem to define our community culture. David has accomplished his work quietly as an (almost) unseen hand, guiding us and, in many cases, introducing us to each other. So I take my hands to applaud him, thank him, and most of all, wish him well."
