Vincent DiBianca

“Vince is an extraordinary coach who has helped me launch an exciting, game-changing future for our company. His work with me, my executive committee, and board of directors has been remarkably effective.”
—Doug Ewert—
CEO, Tailored Brands
(Men’s Wearhouse, Jos A. Bank, Joseph Abboud)

“We were introduced to breakthrough thinking by Vince, Marie and their team which made a huge difference in Reebok’s ability to innovate, relate and create.”
—Paul Fireman—
Co-Founder, Reebok

“Vince helped us lead from a new perspective: instead of simply advancing the satellite communications industry with our work, we were building satellites to create a breakthrough in connecting humankind so that events like Tiananmen Square would never go unseen again…. that made all the difference in terms of linking our vision to what was important to our people and to humanity.”
—Tony Iorillo—
Retired Vice Chairman
Hughes Space and Communications Group

“Vince is the best professional advisor and coach I have ever worked with.  His ability to listen deeply and synthesize information to help me get to alignment, insight and clarity is second to none.  He is a deep, extraordinary thinker who has helped me gain real conscious leadership when working through issues and opportunities.  He is my “go to” coach when the BIG things happen.  He is always there and always ready to partner with me to get to the best result.  It is not only I who benefits from my partnership with Vince — my team, my Company, my family and community also benefit.  He helps me be my best…when I need it most.”  
—Roberta Lang—
Global Vice President
Whole Foods Market

“Observing a significant shift in the educational publishing industry from print to digital and dealing with a recent realignment of our business, we engaged Vince and his team to assist us in envisioning and realizing our new future in digital education. They coached us through a process that allowed us to look at our company and the world differently and which delivered unprecedented quantifiable results… they delivered a customized approach that develops our leadership team, nurtures innovative ideas and promotes partnership. Their flexibility, cooperativeness and adaptability to our needs goes beyond a standard coaching engagement: they have helped us create relationships with individuals and companies outside of our normal network that support our key transformational initiatives and have provided valuable coaching to us as individuals and as a team to significantly improve the way we educate and learn.”
—Mark Mooney
Senior VP and CIO, Global Technology Systems
McGraw Hill Education

“Vince and his associates engaged and challenged our leadership team to create a compelling vision for our company that would take us beyond the status quo. Their ability to really push us to think with more clarity and more boldness about the difference we could make in the world has added real value. We are now not only taking action to realize the breakthrough results we envisioned, but we have also begun engaging our senior leadership from around the world in committed conversations about the impact we want to have on people and the environment.”
—Mike Moshier
Former Senior VP, Human Resources and Executive Coach, Novartis

“A year after I took over the leadership of St. Joseph’s, we received the lowest rating in the province in terms of patient satisfaction. Having previously led an award-winning hospital, I was extremely frustrated that none of our strategies to transform the organization had worked. Vince effectively shifted my perspective by pointing out that an organizational culture can transform when the leader does. I started coming from the place that this was my hospital, my standard of care, my reality. Even in an environment hostile to consultants, they helped us achieve breakthrough results within six months—a full 4 years ahead of what provincial authorities had claimed was possible. Within two years, we were at the top of our peer hospitals within the Greater Toronto area and staff were talking about how they had ‘done it themselves’, a true sign of success. We all learned how to build a sustainable culture, one that continues to this day—even though I left the organization 5 years ago.”
—Marilyn Emery—
President and CEO, Women’s College Hospital and
Former President and CEO, St. Joseph’s Health Centre (Toronto)

“I think Vince is an amazing coach: he helped me take a deep hard look at myself and how I acted as both a leader and a person and truly changed my life. While our business had been very successful over the years, our management team had stalled (me, too). Vince helped me reconnect and communicate with my team on an entirely different level. More importantly, he permanently changed the way I communicate and work with my partner. This enabled me and our company to weather a very challenging time in our business and come out on top. I definitely could not have done it without his coaching and I could not recommend him more highly to anyone looking to re-energize their business or their life.”
—Richard Reitknecht—
President, Asia Pacific Land Co.

Marie Case (Praemia Group)

“Marie effectively coached our senior executive teams in the delivery of their business imperatives—and was invaluable not only when they were dealing with performance gaps, but also when new opportunities arose that required a new level of thinking, leadership and behavior to make them happen.”
—June Boyle—
Group OD Director, British Telecom

“Marie’s ability to help executives and individual contributors uncover the unspoken issues within a welcoming, productive setting could be considered an art form. She is very talented and a master at enriching leaders to lead with integrity, collaboration and success.”
—Natalie Kloss—
Director of Business Development, Vytek

“Marie worked with me from the beginning of the merger in Europe of two oil majors, one American and one British multinational. Our unit was responsible for supply trading and logistics operations within and across the countries of Europe. The new entity was challenged to establish safe, effective and efficient operations across Europe and the rationalization of two workforces within a novel organizational model, while reaping all the rewards of the merger. Despite differing corporate and national cultures, we had a blast developing a team that was hugely successful in addressing the immediate two-year challenges. Simultaneously, through coaching and leadership development, we enabled the team to invent and realize the best of aspirational futures for itself and the company.”
—Harry Rowson—
Group VP, Supply and Distribution, British Petroleum

Don Arnoudse (The Arnoudse Group)

“This coaching experience was clearly a journey—one that I welcomed as I stepped back and looked at changes I wanted to make. I’m very grateful that I had Don on this journey. He has great insight and experience, a warm and supportive manner and is not judgmental. We all have room to grow—and Don has been an important part of my growth the past year.”
—Sue Schade—
Chief Information Officer, Brigham and Women’s Hospital (Boston)

“From the start, Don was extremely helpful in reframing my approach to leading and managing the organization. He helped me look squarely at areas where communication and trust had broken down and regard those dynamics as growth opportunities for myself, for other employees and for the organization. Don was a key catalyst to fundamental changes in my performance as a leader which have led to some important and very positive developments in my organization.”
—Phil Warburg—
President, Conservation Law Foundation (Boston, MA)

“Don would always push me to find the next level and he did it in a positive way. He consistently urged me to get out of my comfort area and find ways to be bold. This was not some academic exercise—it was a real life process targeting real life goals. Don Arnoudse has had an enormous impact on me and in my ability to go after and live out my dreams.”
—John Heller—
Former CEO, Heller Seasonings

Jim Selman (Selman & Co.)

“Jim Selman is more than a coach for me and my team—he has been my partner running the business in a turnaround challenge.”
—Gustavo Valle
CEO, DANONE Brazil

“Personally, Jim’s coaching has had a profound impact on who I am and what I am doing with my life. I had always dreamed of being a person who enabled others to make the difference they wanted to make. Not only did I experience Jim coaching me in this way, but I found myself able to do this with others as a result of his coaching. As I look back on all that we have accomplished in our department over the last few years, it clearly started when Jim came to work with us. There is a clear line of demarcation: before July 2007 we were one way and after July 2007 we were another. We had an entirely different future we were living into. Jim continues to coach us in ways that allow us to make the kind of difference we want to make.”
—Captain Kari Granger
Assistant Professor, Center for Character and Leadership Development, U.S. Air Force Academy

Haley Rushing (Purpose Institute)

“Great leaders are leaders of great purpose, in the world of public service and the business world.  If you’re looking for a way to inspire people, mobilize the talent and energy of your organization and make a real difference, The Purpose Institute will help you do it.  I know because Roy and the principles he preaches have help guide our work at the Clinton Global Initiative and The Clinton Foundation.  Having a clear and compelling Purpose has enabled us to unite leaders and citizens from all over the world in order to convert pioneering ideas into solutions with tangible results.”
—Bill Clinton
Former President

“The Purpose Institute helped GE Aviation restate our identity through an intense and exciting transformational effort involving the whole organizational community.  They crafted an energizing and thoughtful process where we used the broader employee voice in discovering our Purpose in a distinctive way that ended being a source of pride and action.  The effect has been remarkable.  The Purpose statement, “We invent the future of flight, lift people up and bring them home safely”, has enabled us to align the strategy of our business and employee engagement in a truly compelling way that mobilizes us to do better everyday.”
-Raghu Krishnamoorthy-
GE, Chief Learning Officer

“We knew in our hearts that Interstate has been Purpose-driven for 63 years. The Purpose Institute helped us facilitate a multi-stakeholder process that resulted in our Purpose and Values-who we are at Interstate Batteries. We continue to see this deeply resonate with Team Members and partners. This process inspired further focus on shaping our future and has resulted in improved planning, execution and stakeholder engagement.”
-Scott Miller-
Interstate Batteries

“As the founder of Whole Food Market, I want to leave future generations of leaders and Team Members with a North Star by which to navigate. As we continue to evolve and grow, we want to ensure all of our Team Members are aligned with a Purpose they believe in and are inspired to fulfill in their own particular way for decades to come. While we’ve all know our Purpose implicitly, without the help of Haley & Roy and their team at The Purpose Institute, it’s hard to imagine that we would have arrived at such a concise and authentic articulation of our highest and most noble Purpose. They masterfully captured the passion and commitment of all of our Team Members in a purpose statement that ensures we’ll continue to serve all of our stakeholders and make a positive difference in the world for years to come.”
