Barry is an amazing executive coach. We worked together for 12 months and it was a wonderful experience. I would definitely work with Barry again.
Stuart Dalgleish, VP HR Talisman Energy Aberdeen, Scotland
Barry worked with me in developing an executive leadership team, as well as acting a my personal coach. He is knowledgable and well read in his field, grounded in reality because of his prior business experience, and very focused on results. His personal coaching greatly helped me in becoming a better leader. I wholeheartedly recommend Barry as an executive coach.
Thomas Swift, President Raritan
My Vistage group’s counsel and support has been critical as I navigate the challenges of a startup. Having a group of peers in my corner means that I can get candid and forthright help – even on the most challenging topics. Barry's leadership as our Chair encourages each of us to bring full value to the table. There is not another environment like it.
Alese Stroud, CEO Corporate Insight Strategy
As CEO, I make sure that every employee in my company has the opportunity for regular continuing education and training. But where and how do I sharpen my saw? That is why I joined Barry's Vistage group over four years ago. For one full day per month, I join 15 other CEOs to improve our business and leadership skills - and to get challenge and advice on the kinds of issues that only hit the desk of the CEO - from a group that I know I can trust to keep the conversation confidential. I highly recommend Vistage to any CEO willing to lift the hood on your business and get to work.
Van Tilbury, CEO East Harding Construction
It's hard to imagine myself as a leader, as someone who has spearheaded 40% annualized growth for the last few years, without the coaching and community I get through Vistage. I'm thankful for all the moments that Barry or one of my peers has put a hand on my shoulder, smiled and spoken the hard truths that have led me to new levels of clarity. Vistage is my most indispensable source of ongoing advice and my entrepreneurial test laboratory for all the decisions facing my organization.
Ken Clark, CEO Chenal Family Therapy
Barry gives insightful and direct feedback on performance, personal development and leadership which has been invaluable in helping me develop my leadership style and success. He has an international perspective and is equally adept in facilitating groups or working with individual leaders to develop their prowess and release latent talent.
Martin Mackay, President and GM AsiaPac & Japan CA Technologies
A vital part of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute’s mission is to engage people in collaborative dialogue around important and sometimes divisive topics. Barry Goldberg is the top of our go-to facilitators. He is adept at pre-work, meeting design and execution. He expertly guides the meeting to reach the predefined desired outcomes. He ensures we leave the meeting with a task list, individual assignments and a timeline. Barry has a breadth of experience from which he draws and is all-around great to work with.
Marta Loyd, Ed.D, Executive Director Winthrop Rockefeller Institute
Barry led and facilitated the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's first strategic planning process to include musicians, board, volunteers, and staff. The group involved was well over 60 people and Barry was able to facilitate several sessions with all of us in a way that created ownership and team culture among the different constituents. He facilitated the small group work and kept us on track to achieve a deliverable that took our dreams to achievable action steps. Arkansas Symphony Orchestra still uses the outcomes of the work that Barry led.
