What Our Clients Say

  • “The work that Michael Sharp does in helping a business determine what are the steps it takes to get somebody from introduction to closed sale, it’s the best value I’ve found period, in all my work with consultants and personal development tools.

    Since EXOS has come in and helped me, our sales are up about 50%.”

    -Tom Springer, CEO at NurserySource and RediRoot

  • “I watched a team that was working in isolation move toward contribution and team work in a short time period of time.”

    -Steve Keels, Pastor at Good Shepherd Church

  • “We invited Dan to bring the CVI™ program into our Companies and provide training for our leadership. He was pleasant to work with, got the job done quickly, and provided training that was effective, easy to understand and engaging. We received very positive feedback both from our office and field construction personnel. I’m confident this will yield tremendous results for our onboarding, mentoring and employee development programs.”

    -Tom Gerding – CEO Gerding Companies

  • “I would highly recommend Dan Cox and EXOS Advisors for anyone who is in leadership in a Company or a Church.”

    -Darand Davies, CEO Blackline Glazing

  • “Dan helped us to bring employee Mentoring and Coaching and the concept of actually obtaining a High Performance Team into our company and really helped us set up a self-sustaining program that we have been able to spread to our entire workforce. This has improved the effectiveness of everything we do and a major part our of lean and business management programs.”

    -Tesa Patton, HR Director, Vanguard EMS

  • “Dan Cox is a very effective Executive Coach who was a good help to me and other leaders in Veolia Water. He especially helped me navigate some of the more challenging relationship issues I needed to get through with my direct reports.”

    -Owen Boe – VP of Ops for Veolia Water North America

  • “A large part of the Human Resource function is to inspire change. As much as you hope otherwise, it’s normal to spend a lot of unproductive time telling people what to do and why and then disciplining them for failing to improve. It can be a very frustrating place to be. With the skills from Dan’s coaching class, I’ve been able to coach positive movement from people I’d been trying to change for months. It’s also made a difference in my own personal relationships. Receiving coaching helps clear the brain trash and makes the path forward that is much clearer. Change isn’t easy but it is very possible.”

    -Deborah Kingry, Assistant Human Resource Director for Vanguard-EMS

  • “I’ve experienced Dan firsthand turn a failing corporation mired in a culture of fear and avoidance into a productive, profitable, and downright enjoyable place to work. The two and a half years Dan was an Executive Coach in my company were some of the best years of my career. As an executive team, we moved through our conflicts powerfully, and found real results that led to company profits.”

    -Chris Smith – Senior Business Development Manager at Vanguard - EMS

  • “I can honestly say we have experienced measurable results with Dan’s help. We hired our field supervisor using the Core Values Index™ and the Top Performer Profile™ science. Because we hired the right person, we were able to consolidate two supervisor positions into one, cutting our salaries in half in that department–a 5x return on investment in one position. We have continued to lift our employees to higher contributions for our company and have seen increased profits and productivity beyond what we have thought possible. Our increased performance as a company especially prepared us for the recent drought in CA, which has impacted out business negatively. But the work Dan did with me personally has played a huge role in getting through the difficulties.”

    -Darrel Feil – COO/Owner at Abate A Weed

  • “The CVI™ is a tool that makes people make sense. Both personally and professionally, it has given me a clear and simple structure to understand the wiring of people. I can more clearly understand why we do what we do and how to expect people to react when things go wrong. It has immediately become useful for me in counseling, leadership development, parenting, and even my own marriage. Best of all, it’s helped me understand me. I’m no longer itching to be something I’m not, because I know how to flourish in who I am! The CVI™ is to my leadership what a ventilator is to a patient in ICU – life-giving. It has breathed life back into me! My only regret is that I did not discover this tool sooner.”

    -Justin Erickson, Lead Pastor - Oikos Phoenix, and Founder of It Stands Written

  • “I was looking for a solution to outsource some of the front-end business development work. I was skeptical about results as I’ve tried several avenues in the past to produce new sales appointments. But Michael at EXOS Advisors was able to produce the first qualified appointment with a decision maker in my target list within a few weeks of part-time work. He has consistently generated appointment after appointment. I am now considering easing up a bit as I have a solid pipeline of business proposals.”
