    I've had the great pleasure of working with Phil on a strategic change of direction for my support organization. Phil goes deep and does not shy away from giving opinions that are contrary to conventional wisdom or to your beliefs. You, as a leader, need to be able to process constructive criticism and accept Phil's challenging thoughts. If you do, you can create real sustainable change for the better.
