Gerry Tchir is a motivator, a visionary, a coach, and a mentor. And he has the training, skills, knowledge, and experience to provide insightful, astute, and valuable guidance.

Thanks to Gerry, I have a complete plan that is exciting, ambitious...and completely achievable.

I have worked with Gerry for several months on a project to redefine the vision and objectives of my organization. Thanks to Gerry, I have a complete plan that is exciting, ambitious, aligned with the mission statement, and also detailed, logical, and completely achievable. It was Gerry’s guidance and input that allowed me to look at the available resources and opportunities, and then create a vision and plan based upon “what’s possible” rather than “what’s predictable”. The plan in place now would not have been possible without Gerry Tchir.

I strongly encourage you to invite Gerry onto your team.

Daniel de Riancho, Northeast Regional Trainer – Whole Foods


We finished our year of training yesterday with Gerry Tchir presenting his day-long seminar, ‘Winning Attitudes’. I wanted to express how happy my staff and I were with his training content and presentation. It was a very compelling and interactive 6-7 hours of training. Gerry is excellent at connecting with people and his message is a powerful one; taking ownership and control of one’s life direction and being responsible for those choices. This was extremely topical for my staff. I believe that they deeply appreciated the opportunity given to attend this training.

...Gerry is excellent at connecting with people and his message is a powerful one...

Lastly, I want to thank you for all your support throughout the past year, as your persistence in following up with me was appreciated . . . You clearly have selected the ‘best of the best’ for the training you provide. I believe the feedback from our trainees will support this.

Hiring Gerry Tchir has been one of my very
best business decisions.

Since the day he started, Gerry has helped re-structure my business; evaluate and re-position key personnel streamline operations, establish performance goals by department and company, help mentor/coach my management team, helped establish a higher level of customer service, foster a positive company attitude, initiate standard company Policies & Procedures and also serves as my private “sounding board” for new ideas.

Clearly, Gerry is an asset to my business!

Gerry has served the American School of Business and The Real Estate store in various capacities. He has helped to strengthen our internal organizational structure, enhance employee/management communications, reduce interpersonal and departmental conflict, help provide focus on new business opportunities, clearly define office roles and responsibilities, establish monthly company meetings, help change the culture and work ethic within my company, help establish specific performance goals, provide new levels of customer service, and facilitate a succession planning transition. I truly value my Business Advisor relationship with Gerry, and would recommend his services to all.

Ed Davies
CEO, American School of Business & The Real Estate Store


As my Business Advisor, Gerry has provided much needed sales and marketing focus to my business. He has helped to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and as importantly, the threats that challenge our business.

With his assistance, our company established a much needed strategic game plan and direction.

During the implementation process, Gerry has been with us every step of the way! I truly value and appreciate his integrity and vision, as well as his contributions as our confidential Business Advisor.

Gerry Tchir is helping to implement my company vision. Using business vision team planning, he has helped launch our strategic plan, and is working with my management team to ensure company-wide compliance.

Gerry is a likable individual, who fosters confidence and a positive attitude within my company. He is like family.

Capitalizing on his background, I am using Gerry to upgrade managerial skills, help establish performance criteria, improve profit, and facilitate team trust building in my management group.

Having engaged Gerry Tchir as my mentor/coach has significantly improved my performance as a business owner. Through his guidance and direction I have gained a heightened level of respect from my employees, as well as developing a better understanding of the value of a good balance between my personal and professional life. Gerry has served as an inspiration to both myself and my employees. The most interesting observation of all, however, is that by virtue of his presence alone, my thought process is affected to the point that I draw conclusions that otherwise would go undetected. Gerry exudes confidence and brings out the best in those he is in contact with. I have been able to maintain a much better level of focus than I had prior to our relationship.

...Gerry has served as an inspiration to both myself and my employees...

I recommend utilizing Gerry's expertise, which is not limited to the scope of business alone, in order to achieve anyone's full potential.

Thank you, Gerry, for conducting your Managing Change training program to the managers and supervisors of the NY/NJ region of Quest Diagnostics. With all of the changes we've experienced recently, it couldn't have come at a better time.

Many of our employees, including the supervisors who manage them, have been feeling the anxiety, fear, anger, uncertainly, and apathy that accompanies change. As a result of the training, our managers and supervisors understand that change is inevitable and can even be a positive experience. Most importantly, they were provided skills to help their staff deal more effectively with change, such as focusing on "moving forward," seeing change as an opportunity, and being accountable in helping the company succeed.

I'll end with some comments from some of our managers and supervisors who attended your program:

... "This was the best class I've ever attended! I recommend that this course be offered to all employees, including our CEO! ...

• "The class was practical; I can apply the skills learned to real situations."
• "Gerry was a real motivator!"
• "The message that came across loud and clear is that change is an opportunity."
• "The class allowed me to hear other managers' comments on the challenges their departments and staff are going through, and how they are handling these challenges. We felt a certain "bonding" as a result; that we're all in this together and need to support each other."
• "There was active participation ."
• "This was the best class I've ever attended! I recommend that this course be offered to all employees, including our CEO!"

Regards,
Darielle
