Here’s what a few had to say about their Leapfrog experiences— and outcomes.

“The Novotran simulation gave our hi-pos an opportunity to ‘catch themselves being themselves’ while leading and teaming. Afterwards, one-on-one coaching helped them apply what they’d learned.”


Debbie Friedman, Operating Vice President
Federated Leadership Institute
Federated Department Stores, Inc.

“I found our coaching sessions highly rewarding and challenging...a great catalyst to move forward on many fronts. Your extraordinary listening skills and keen observations motivated me to tackle my career development with curiosity and determination. I highly recommend your coaching for striking the right balance between goal setting, accountability, and personal transformation.“ Juan Carlos Zavala, Director

“When we needed a dynamic learning exercise in our leadership development work with Wyeth, we turned to Leapfrog for their design expertise and flair for providing proprietary, interactive, fun activities that target key learning principles.

Together we adapted and renamed Leapfrog’s simulation, Pawn’s Perspective™ to simulate the variety of pressures and perspectives that occur in a fast changing, global, matrixed and multi functional environment.

We have used this simulation all over the world with great success both in terms of launching a serious discussion of the issues in complex teams and in energizing Wyeth’s participants.”

David Giber, PhD
Senior Vice President, Consulting

“Leapfrog is remarkable. Candidly, based on too many “low impact” experiences, I had lost faith in team building as a leadership development tool. Leapfrog restored that faith, and then some. They went to great lengths to design an experience that was tailored to our strategic objectives and the quality of their facilitation—from framing through delivery and debrief— was truly exceptional. They are superb and it is also an absolute pleasure to work with them.”

John Barch, Director of Global Partner Development
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu

“This whole experience reminded me again of the power of teams. The synergy of ideas and the confidence to do things that I saw yesterday was extraordinary!”

Mark Levin, Former President and CEO
Millennium Pharmaceuticals

“You are the best group I've ever worked with, hands down!”

Trish Davis-Wick, Consultant
Bank of America

“Honestly, it was one of the best team building events I have ever attended. I can say without a doubt we achieved our goals! Bob was fun, engaging, and always had a way to bring us back on point. I have never been together with this group and laughed so much. I received many calls thanking me for such an engaging program. Thank you for being such a successful part of our regional training.”

Eileen Gradwell, Senior Clinical Research Associate,
Pennsylvania Region
Clinical Research Operations, US
Merck & Co., Inc.

“The Leapfrog program enabled attendees to hold a mirror up to themselves in a non-threatening and fun way; catalytic in focusing the leadership on the need for a cultural vision… The quality of the simulation was superior—complex in its design— because it factored in real dynamics of organizational life.”

Christine DePoto, Director of Organizational Development
Lerner New York (a division of Limited, Inc.)

“We are extremely impressed with your creativity, your innovative approach and the fresh ideas you bring to this work. That and your delightful, effective interaction with our clients and with us as a partner are the reasons we keep coming back for more.”

Deborah Slobodnik, Principal
Options for Change, Inc.

“The Leapfrog session was just superb. You have taken the time to understand and learn our business, and that certainly contributed to the success of the program.”

Pat Berges, Human Resources Director
Global healthcare company

“I’ve worked closely with Leapfrog Innovations since 1996 because you help us get the results we need from our people. The program just delivered was a tremendous success, and I have already started receiving positive feedback. You are professional, creative, organized and flexible in customizing each program to meet our needs.”

John Touchette, CMP, Sr. Manager Meetings & Special Events
Raytheon Company

“Court Chilton was a huge success at our seminar and added much value to the program. I have a highly motivated group of people and we knew what we wished to accomplish; however we needed Court to provide us with the road map to help get there. Court is a quick study and successfully adapted himself to our firm culture in a short period of time.”

Richard McKenna
Chief Administrative Officer
White & Case LLP

“The feedback from the participants has been overwhelmingly positive. I was approached by over half of the participants who all raved about the exercise. As quoted by our National Sales Manager, “This program not only hit a home run, it hit the ball way out of the park.”

George Patsouris, Vice President
IXIS Asset Management Advisors Group

“We are in the early stages of building a unified world-class Global Finance team at Tyco. Your session definitely moved us in the right direction, demonstrating the importance of working together as a team across all types of boundaries. It was as fun as it was effective!”

Dave Fitzpatrick, former CFO
Tyco International

“The program forced us to all identify tough issues, deal with them and work toward solutions. Usually it's only one or two of those concepts - your framework got us through all three! 6++ (out of 6).”

Julie Adrian, Leadership Council
Chandler Chicco Agency

“I cannot possibly think of a company or team that I've ever been associated with that could not benefit instantly from a half day with Leapfrog. I started the day with 20 hardcore, skeptical professionals and finished with 20 ear-to-ear smiles"

Joel Greengrass
Vice President - People & Learning
Equinox

“The program was a huge success, one of the best team building events we have done. The participants had a great time and were very creative, even going outside during a teeming rain storm to get the job done! Even now, several months later, I have requests to show the final videotapes and photos.”

Betsey Haywood, Senior Marketing & Event Planner
Swiss Reinsurance Americas Corporation

“Leapfrog’s enthusiasm and willingness to work with us and the special needs of our organization made them a perfect fit. We’ve never seen so many excited, positive responses to a training session before!”

Paula Botch, Office of the Regional Director
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service

“Leapfrog is always creative and committed to giving our clients an extraordinary experience. Earlier this month, we planned an outdoor program and the day before, a Nor’easter was forecast. Within 12 hours, the Leapfrog team designed a completely new indoor program for 260 participants—one that delivered all the excitement and business impact our client sought. This program was another in a line of great successes. We enthusiastically look forward to future collaborations.”

Ellen J. Burnett, President
The Best of Boston Ltd.

“Leapfrog Innovations has paved the way and proven the value of experiential learning at Bose. They are highly creative, flexible, and collaborative partners who strive to understand our objectives and help us achieve outstanding results. Our participant feedback says it all…”Will Leapfrog be there? Yes!”

Sharon Tse, Senior Manager, Employee Enablement
Bose Corporation

“This will be your seventh year working with us on our Global Leadership Program for ‘high potentials’. Each year’s participants have rated your day as a highlight of the eight day program. Last year was clearly one of the best. The results speak for themselves in the pride Wyeth and Leapfrog have in the playground project in the inner city of Trenton. Our partnership with you is ideal—you perform in a seamless, transparent manner that allows the participants to realize the full learning that we desire.”

Jeffrey S. Peris, (former) Chief Learning Officer
Wyeth
