Thank you for adding to my personal development. You were as much about the means vs. the end results. As one acquires wisdom (technical knowledge + experience) do they realize what is true leadership in business? I model much of my consulting capabilities around your approach to creating a ‘learning organization’ for clients.
For over ten years Darwin Gillett has been an invaluable advisor. I have relied on his business acumen, experience, empathy, and heart. I trust him. He broadens my perspective of situations so I can fine-tune my approach. He balances business and spiritual requirements, never losing sight of what matters most.
Many consultants have ‘the answer.’ They just want you to ask the right questions. Gillett can listen to your real questions, and work with you on them.
You have been an incredible mentor and friend. The conversations we shared will be cherished for a lifetime. I appreciate your insight, thoughtfulness and guidance. You are an answered prayer.
Your enthusiasm is so important, because when people feel that things won’t go well, they need that sense of practical enthusiasm that you use to “lead” people to what is possible.
You brought out from the managers of our division what they see as being critical to success. There wasn’t any doubt that we needed to be doing something differently, but there was no methodology to bring it together. As a result of your involvement, this group has come a long way, and are now very focused and heading down the right path.
