Alexander Easdale – Managing Principal – Forging Alliances
Our philosophy rests on empowering our clients, adapting our services to their needs, and providing them with the tools to succeed and win. We view our clients as our partners, working to build long-term relationships that go beyond any particular contract.
Our values are:
⦁ Integrity: We do what we say and say what we do. Great initiatives and partnerships begin with trust. We under-promise and over-deliver – holding ourselves accountable. Our efforts produce metric based, sustainable outcomes.
⦁ Alignment: Our relationships with clients and partners are the foundation of our work. As such, we seek strategic win-win relationships with like-minded organizations and individuals.
⦁ Social Responsibility: We are dedicated to offering services that ultimately contribute to the development of underprivileged communities.
⦁ Empowerment: We seek to empower our clients and ultimately our communities by unearthing real leaders.
⦁ Transformation: Change is a constant in life. Transformative change is not. We will create opportunities for real, transformative change, change that is fundamental, positive and sustainable.
⦁ Fun: We have fun. We believe that a fun, safe and happy environment produces the best results. Ours is a family, people first environment. This includes our partners, clients, staff, consultants and communities.
⦁ Inspiration: People produce their best work and live their best lives when they are inspired. Everyone has potential, few reach it. The key to reaching your potential is doing something that inspires you. We seek more than anything else to inspire individuals and communities and to have fun.
Alex and the Leadership course has helped me grow professionally, personally, and positively impacted my life in a tremendous way. “A good mentor is available, teaching them what to do is easy, showing them is difficult” by John C. Maxwell, and Alex has made himself available to be a mentor, teacher, and coach. The way that Alex has advised me over the past year has allowed me to shift my perspective and see the world in new ways. Rather than provide instruction or tell me how/what to do, Alex’s method of utilizing open-ended questions and thought provoking responses guided me to find the answers on my own, yet in a collaborative approach. Alex facilitated my thought process to focus on what I want to do in my life and grow, rather than focus on reasons that I use as an excuses to not push myself to new limits. I’ve already seen a tremendous change in my professional career, and excited to keep practicing the skills I’ve acquired with Alex’s help.
I highly recommend this course and thank Alex for everything!
